- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I like to keep my hourly rates affordable because I want my services to be accessible to all. I raise my rates during busy seasons like Halloween to make the time and stress a little more worth it, and if I have to travel distances taking over 30 minutes.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?
I have been painting since I was old enough to hold a brush: probably 3 or 4 years old. I began with watercolors and oil paints, then acrylic, and in recent years, my new passion: face and body paint. I was always very protective of my work and refused to take art classes because I wanted my art to be my own. I finally broke down in college and added a studio art minor to my Spanish language major and quickly discovered that I was in heaven. I'm not sure if I ever chose visual art: I think it chose me.
