- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Since no project is ever the same. I give quotes after a preliminary discussion of what is expected. I do however work within budgets and do my best to give the best pricing.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I prefer to have a conversation over the phone. We discuss the project further and talk over best possible methods to make your artistic vision a reality. In order to hold the dates and start design concepts I require a non refundable retainer fee of $500. I will then start on design renderings and/or mockups and come up with design that everyone is happy with. The price of the retainer fee will go towards the final price of the art work. I work very quickly and will give you a time frame as to when I can complete the project. I require a 50% deposit for materials and to get started and 50% upon completion. I have no issues having you watch and/or be involved as much or as little as you desire. At some point I will reach a point where any more embellishment will take away from the end result. We will talk and discuss and necessary changes, and if you are happy then the artwork is complete!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
An entire life of making art. I started make and selling portrait paintings at 14 and then I started making murals at 16. I have also been running my own art business as a professional artist the last 16 years in New York, Miami and LA
