These Terms and Conditions are GENERAL and subject to change.  All terms disclosed PRIOR to beginning work. Artist in the description refers to Preference L. Evans, owner and operator of Art by Preference LLC.  Payment made toward an Art by Preference commission signifies agreement with the following terms and conditions.



  • All custom or commissioned work requires payment/deposit (paid through invoice) before work can begin. Product is released AFTER payment is made in full.  

  • Total amount of art: 

    • $100-$500: Total balance due before services are rendered

    • $501- $1,500: 50% deposit/50 balance at completion 

    • $1501-$5,000: 50% deposit/balance paid in up to 2 payments 

    • $5,000 and up: 25% deposit/balance paid in installments with final payment made at completion.

A storage fee will be added if customer fails to complete payment agreement until the date of full payment.


  • Art by Preference will send you an invoice to be used for payment, which will include the date agreed upon by Artist and Client OR upon approval of finished work if Client is ready to proceed before original deadline.

  • Artwork is not released until final payment is made.



A consultation is provided with every commissioned work to ensure customer satisfaction. How it works...

  1. Artist provides free 15-minute consultation to determine if she can meet Client expectations.

  2. Once client agrees and invoice deposit is made, ​Client will have an additional hour of consultation to discuss project details. Please have all details needed to complete project available or already e-mailed before the consultation.

  3. Artist will provide Client an initial draft of product for approval before proceeding. Client should provide all requests for changes at this time unless otherwise stated.

  4. Artist usually contacts Client throughout process to achieve best possible outcome.

  5. Artist will send photo/file of completed work to Client for approval.

  6. Final product will only be given to Client after final payment is made.  



Refunds do not apply to commissioned work.  Credits are only issued in the event of the artist's error and at the discretion of the artist. Customer's photo documentation is required.


ALL SALES ARE FINAL.  Please ask all questions before making your purchase.  Preference is happy to communicate with you by phone or video call before you make your final decision.  Preference works very hard to ensure that customers are satisfied with plans throughout the commission process. All deposits and payments are non-refundable.  Services cannot be undone once rendered. 

  • If you change your mind about a commissioned artwork, please notify Preference IMMEDIATELY so she does not proceed. In this event, your deposit may be able to be applied as a credit towards another eligible product, based on discretion of Artist.  

  • Requests to credit your deposit must be made within 48 hours of payment in order to avoid losing deposit completely.  Many works are started within the first 24-48 hours of deposit payment.
