Commissioning an Encaustic Painting

If you are looking for that "just right, just for you" painting, commissioning artwork may be the perfect choice. My process is easy and fun.


It's a personalized experience, with conversations about what you like, places you've traveled, activities you enjoy, and the colors in your life. It is my goal to create a painting that is ideal for your home or business. Keep reading, and discover the magic of commisioned art.

Testimonial from a patron in Seattle, WA:


"Encaustic offers a multitude of voices, and Melissa Stephens knows how to play them all to perfection with boundless creativity and virtuosity.  Her works are delicious, hypnotic, and deeply nuanced; our eyes feast upon them afresh each day.  Melissa is constantly experimenting and evolving, which makes each piece strikingly unique and each new series or commission eagerly anticipated.  Yet she is also a rigorous practitioner: the pieces within each series stand as distinct chapters within a book, and her series and commissions stand as distinct volumes in a prolific, expansive, delicious oeuvre."
