- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I price by the job rather than by the hour. Due to years of experience, I have learned to give appropriate pricing with the needed information, so that you can be assured your prices won't change at the end. This enables me to give you an exact price from the beginning, which doesn't change unless client adds an extensive amount to the original scope of the project. I also provide package discounts for multiple pieces booked at once, frequent client discounts, as well as discounts for public non-profit locations.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
1. Agree on price with client (affordable and fixed rate per job). 2. Discuss dates and times available for painting. 3. Ensure I am the right artist for your new creation. 4. Collect 50% retainer supply deposit to secure your work dates and begin detailed design work. 5. I then create sample sketches and rough ideas Photoshopped onto your space, to ensure we're on the same page, and that you have the best design and plan in place before ever beginning on your project. 6. Complete the job, generally within 1-4 days, depending on the size and detail. 7. Collect 50% remaining balance at the completion of the job, on site. *** I do accept debit, credit card and PayPal for all deposits, as well as cash in addition for the balance.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I was trained privately by a professional artist beginning at the age of 5. I began creating murals and other art for the public, professionally at age 16. Then I studied art in college, obtaining a BFA in Graphic Design and Professional Writing. Since then I taught the arts to students for over 12 years, and I have been working with clients around the world to create the best designs for the space.
