Introduction: Please read before contacting: Welcome, here are a few details on how we operate. Our goal is to create an A+ for you, this is a process. -We start with a $250 design fee for 4hrs of creative time. This means that you can tell me your concepts/ideas and I sketch them very quickly, to make sure that we are on the same page. Once you like the direction that the project is going, I can either spend more time to refine the sketch, or go from there and produce the estimate including materials and some possible start dates. *The creative block in non-refundable. If we establish the design and there is still time available, then I use that extra time as a credit towards the project. -If you have a quick turnaround for your project, then depending on availability, I may not be the right fit for your project. I have a calendar of dates that I promise to clients. Sometimes the customer tells me that there is flexibility, which means I can adjust for new projects occasionally if there is a block of time already taken. How it works in most cases though is a new customer is scheduled in the next available time slot. -If you have a budget for your project, then great! We can create within the parameters of your budget (minimum of $350) If you do not have a budget, that is ok, however, the price of a project goes up with detail and the need for more materials. -Once design is approved and the estimate is approved for the overall project I require 25% or 50% down of the total-then, depending on the size of the project I require the full amount remaining on completion or broken up over the duration of the project, and the remaining due on completion. -I share most of my projects on social media and generally tag the business if it is for the business. -I do live painting events, however I do not do live caricature drawings. -Please do not contact me through Thumbtack for any charity events or non paid inquiries, (Thumbtack leads cost money) for those questions you can Google my info and email or call me. Thank you! Please continue reading if you are interested in moving forward! "Where concepts become reality!" If you have a creative thought and would like to see it come alive, we are your portal to making that happen. We specialize in fine art, murals, faux finish and custom painting on nearly any surface. "I have created art with a variety of different materials and have worked with many different customers over the years. Generally, I begin by finding out what your needs are, then after we discuss your vision, I sketch a rough draft of what you would like to create, then we move towards completion." -Artist, Michael Beenenga I am excited to see your project come alive!

Needed some work done at my business and hired Michael because my other artist had to cancel on me. Little did I know that it would be one of the biggest blessings I could get! Michael is an amazing artist and person with a creative eye not easy to find. He goes above and beyond on his projects and always works hard “to get an A+” from the people he’s doing work for. He completely transformed my business and helped brainstorm really cool ideas which where brought to life and I can’t imagine my place now without his work now. He has a large range of artistic styles in his arsenal that make him a perfect fit for almost any project. Highly recommend, one of the best artists I’ve ever found not just because of his amazing work but his work ethic and his willingness to want to make you happy and “understand the assignment”.

Details: Indoor wall(s) • Commercial • Very large (over 100 sq ft) • I have an idea of what I want

Thank you Arturo! I am grateful to be able to do what I do. I am equally grateful to get to know you and your family, and hear about your history and backstories as we created these pieces. I look forward to working with you all again in the future and creating something unique!

We commissioned Mike to draw a portrait for a major family event coming up next month. Mike exceeded our expectations both with the quality of the final product and completing it well within our timeline. Highly recommend!

Thank you Dr. Miller! I always enjoy hearing the backstory of a project before beginning. Thank you for the opportunity to tell a part of your family’s story through this portrait!

I gave Michael a whole room experience by asking him to create an outdoor mountain clearing with trees in the foreground; meadows, rocks and a creek in the middle; and Pikes Peak in the distance. His finished product was a masterpiece. When I show off the room to others, the response is always the same … “Wow!” Adding to the challenge, I knew exactly what I wanted so I had plenty of novice advice to provide to the professional. Michael was a joy to work with. He always had an open ear and was willing to take my thoughts into account (that seldom happens with an artist!). He has an excellent artistic eye while also understanding the science of perspective, creating depth and incorporating nature. It took me a number of years to find someone I could trust to create what I was seeking. Michael did it in spades!

It was an absolute pleasure working with Mike on our underwater exploration project that came to life in 2021. Our business provides therapy services for children and adolescents on the autism spectrum. Our goal was to provide an environment that sparks the imagination into wonder and peace from the real world challenges our kids face every day. Mike exceeded all expectations and surprised us each day during the project. Working with Mike was as much fun as seeing the ideas evolve. He has an incredible ability to take the smallest of ideas and create a story for the imagination to run with. Thank you Mike for your passion and dedication to creating an amazing place for our team and kids to explore!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    In order to produce the best result for your project, I want to make sure I have heard all of your concepts, concerns and your expectations for your project. I like to reach out and communicate with you via text, call, email or zoom and make sure that I am a right fit for you and your project before any agreement is made. After, I hear about your project and you determine that you are happy with my skill and capabilities for your project, then I offer a design Consultation/Brainstorming Block of Time. The Consultation/Brainstorming Block of Time is 4 hours of design time for $250 and includes rough sketches and revisions as we communicate back and forth until we get the design you are happy with. If you need more time, then another block can be purchased. Once we have succeeded on the design and there is still time left over, then that time is credited towards the final project's overall invoice. When you are happy with the design then I can give the estimate, with materials and a timeline that you can expect the project to be completed by. I require 25% or 50% up front once you agree to the estimate. That percentage is determined by the size of the project.
