- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Pricing for murals ranges from $10-25 per square foot. The amount of detail, design time, materials and location will all factor into the cost. I am happy to discuss options and I do my very best to work within my customers budget.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?The first thing I like to do when working with a new customer is to have a conversation via phone or in person about the project. Everyone has a different way of working and I think it helps to have a conversation before any work begins. The design process starts with 1-4 rough thumbnails- these are simply small, very rough pencil sketches to illustrate an idea. Typically these come with written notes to further explain an idea. These ideas are presented to the client and together we discuss the best ideas, choosing 1-3 or a combination of ideas to move forward with. I will then do 1-3 fully developed sketches. These sketches will help us decide which idea is best to move onto the final design. Once we have a final design I we will work together to choose a custom color palette in the same manner.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a BFA in Illustration from the College For Creative Studies in Detroit. I have been working as a freelance artist/designer/muralist in Chicago for 4 years working with companies such as BigFoot Media, NPB Art Studio, CMO Graphics and Design Pac. Prior to being a full-time freelance artist I worked as a restoration artist.
