Patrick B. Pointer, Master Woodcarver and Maritime Artist, Specializing in Great Lakes Maritime History


If you are interested in any subject similar to those on this website or any other subject, I would be happy to talk to you about a commission, please go to the "Contact Me" tab above and send me a message and I will return your information usually within 24-48 hours.

With any commission, I would discuss with you in detail not only the subject matter, but the weather and light conditions and any other relevant detail such as location or era. I would prepare a “preliminary sketch” in graphite pencil for you to approve or discuss changes prior to starting the carving.

Pricing would also be agreed prior to commencing the work, which will include framing. You would be under no obligation to purchase the completed carving if you were not happy with it, however, I may ask for a non-refundable deposit prior to starting.

I would add that I have undertaken numerous commissions in the past, and my clients have always been delighted to accept the completed carving.

The copyright to all work, whether commission or other remains with the artist, unless specifically agreed in writing to the contrary.
