Work With Me
Yes! Let's work together! But first, let me tell you what I can do for you.
Over the years, I've been so lucky to work with amazing customers who chose me to make their own or someone's day extra special. I got asked to create something magical for weddings, baby showers, birthdays and other milestones in life. The actual pieces that I created over the years have been very diverse, but the main goal of each customer was to have something unique and magical that they could share on the main event with their loved ones and have as a keepsake for the years to come.
My artwork and illustrations have found their Forever Homes all over the world and my adoring fans + customers have described my work as "a blast of sunshine", "expressively sweet with a sense of childhood playfulness" and like an "empowering breath of impossibly-fresh air".
Let me help you bring some magic back home again. Because yes, I've made it my mission to bring beautiful and colorful art + designs into your world. It will feel gloriously enchanting, magical and...sparkly.
Just don't take my word for it though.
"My wedding finger print tree was an awesome addition to my wedding and a treasure I will have forever. It's beautiful and when I made up my mind that I wanted one I had no doubts about exactly who to speak to. I knew that my wonderfully talented friend TJ would just blow me away with what she created and she did. Don't take my word for it, go look and show her lots of love." - Sarah-Jane Roberts, owner of a Magical Wedding Fingerprint Tree.
Getting curiouser & curiouser? There a couple ways to get your hands on a TJ art piece.
Custom Illustrations and Projects
Need a Fingerprint Tree? A wondrous painting for a nursery or your office?
Whatever painting you need, this option is the most customizable one, but not necessarily the most expensive, though. So don't let this scare you as it depends on more factors in the end, like size, theme and deadline. The outcome is always a magical forever keepsake.
So if you have a specific idea or a special occasion coming up, make it otherworldly by having me design something for you!
Custom Services • Dreamy Trees & Spirit Forests
This service is aimed at giving everyone the chance to get their hands on an original painting done with artist quality paint, but for an affordable price. In this case, your own Dreamy Tree/Forest of Spirit Forest.
The trees and floral designs have a calmness and magic that I can't really explain. Since this is something I'd love everyone to have, I want to keep this as low in cost as possible.
My Custom Services page has more information about this!
Etsy • Affordable Originals and Instant Art.
If working with me is a bit of costly leap, do browse my Etsy store for affordable originals and printables.
The pieces are mostly what I share on Instagram, so make sure to follow me on there so you can get the first glimpse of new art themes and designs. Most pieces are for sale and if you don't see it in my store, don't hesitate to contact me to see if I still have it.
The prices in my store range from 5 to 100 euros and I ship worldwide.
Those are pretty solid options, huh? And you know what? It seems that the art does much more than just making the owners happy:
"Every night, as part of our bedtime ritual, our little girl has to say good night to all her animals in the painting. We hope to be able to pass this on to her as she grows. We have always been impressed with TJ's work!!" - Reena & Neil Lorntson, owners of Safari themed nursery painting.
Whether you can splurge on having something completely custom made or getting your hands on a painting that's in my Etsy, by having the three options, there's something for everyone. I have a Commission FAQ below, but if you have other questions, just contact me and I'll get back to you asap.
1. What information do I need from you?
When you commission me, it speeds up the process if you are as clear and detailed as possible. A description of your idea, size of the painting, a possible deadline and if possible a budget are sufficient.
2. How do you work?
The general process is as follow: 1. research & sketching, 2. feedback & tweaks, 3. final version with paint, 4. digital editing, 5. shipping original and digital file in inbox. I work with high quality watercolor paper, artist quality watercolor, gouache and ink pens.
I have a Youtube channel with timelapses and rambles. You can stare at some work in process posts on my site.
3. Do you sell original art work?
Yes. There are original paintings for sale in my Etsy Store.
4. What type of occasions/projects can I think of?
You can think of e.g. baby showers, nursery rooms, birthdays, bridal parties, bachelor/bachelorette party, wedding and gifts for your department at your office.
5. How is the price calculated?
I don't have fixed prices for custom paintings. The complexity, size of the painting and deadline determine the final price for an original piece. Also, as the customer you can voice your preferences and this makes it a fun collaboration. Keep in mind that custom work is higher than the prices you see in my Etsy store. If you see a painting on Instagram that is based on an idea you have, you can use that as an example and I can give you a more specific price.
6. When do I have to pay?
Payment is due up front and are done via Paypal. If it's a higher price, payment in installments is possible. As soon as I receive your payment (or 1st installment) & design information, I’ll notify you and will start the process of creating awesome designs for you.
7. What’s the deal with shipping & handling?
Packages are shipped via Postnl. I always use the standard option, which means that while it gets the priority stamp it has no track & trace code. So far nothing went wrong *knocks on wood*, but you can always go for insured shipping or express shipping.
Please note: The client is responsible for any extra duties and custom charges that may occur when the package is shipped. Also, double check your address when you send it to me as I copy that exactly.
Hope I answered the basic questions! You can read more about me in the Artist FAQ. Feel free to browse around and if you have more questions, I’m just an email away
