Residential Commissions

I love working on custom commissions with clients! First we brainstorm ideas and sizes, then I create a few studies, once that is selected I custom build and stretch the canvas that suits the clients needs. There is a mid-way meeting and where clients have direct input on the direction of the composition. From there on it takes about a month to complete. The process is easy and fun and usually takes about two months to create depending on the size. Below are unique examples of projects custom made for each clients space. For a detailed description and ideas for commissions please email me at nedret@nedretandre.com to receive your “Art In Homes” PDF.

Working with Nedret on our commission was a true pleasure. She was incredibly accommodating to our hopes regarding themes colors, and expression in the commissioned work while staying true to her artistic vision as well. We strongly recommend working with Nedret.

I love enjoying my desiring seagrass with various different flower arrangements. It’s neat how the various flowers bring out the different colors in the piece!

We don’t remember where we first saw Nedret’s work, but we do remember that we were immediately taken by it. Her use of colors, texture and movement made an instant impact on us. 

From the moment we contacted Nedret to the day in which she delivered our piece to us, Nedret was welcoming of us and our ideas, consistently sharing of her own thoughts when we asked for help, and dedicated to providing us the best experience and result possible. 

We have had the good fortune to be able to commission other pieces in the past from other artists and are always cautious about doing so. We find there is always some anxiety about how a piece will turn out, not knowing if it will ultimately achieve the vision/expectations we have. Nedret’s methods and engagement throughout the commission assuaged any lingering doubts we had about this, and we never worried about the end result. 

It was a pleasure to meet and work with Nedret, who in the end created a truly wonderful piece that makes us smile everyday when we see it in our home.

“Nedret was great to work with. She guided us through the process, finding a way to bring to life our incoherent ideas, turning them into a painting that was better than we could have imagined.”

Allyson & Dan’s Commission, Oil on Canvas, 36″x 60″, 2021

We had a wonderful experience working with Nedret. She was very patient when it became clear that Allyson and I had differing views on our vision for the painting. But…. we got there and the end result was spectacular. Nedret is fun to work with and terrifically talented.

I stumbled upon Nedret’s artwork one day on social media and I’m so happy I did! The colors and movements captured in her pieces are beautiful. And when you meet Nedret in person, learn how passionate she is about seagrass, and that a portion of the commission is donated to ocean awareness and eelgrass conservation efforts, I loved her work even more.

“We loved working with Nedret and could not be more excited to welcome Juno’s Beach into our home.  It’s perfect!  We came across Nedret’s work when visiting her SOWA studio.  We fell in love with her work, and knew we wanted one of her pieces for our home, but none of the pieces in her studio were quite the right size for the wall we had picked out.  We decided to commission a piece and are thrilled we did.  Not only did we end up with a beautiful piece, but we had the opportunity to get to know Nedret and share many stories and some good laughs.  She welcomed us into her studio and came to our home – it was truly a collaborative and personal process.  Nedret’s work is special – the colors are vivid and lively, but the pieces instill a sense of calm and peacefulness.  We are thoroughly enjoying Juno’s Beach and feel honored to be displaying it in our home.”

I have worked on custom projects since 2003. If you’d like to see examples of previous work, feel free to email me. The commission process is fun and easy and on average takes up to two months to complete. Depending on my exhibition schedules, I try to work on only 6 commissions a year. Please contact me at nedret@nedretandre.com for brainstorming some ideas!
