Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I provide custom artwork and illustrations for recipes, books, branding, packaging and products. I also teach weekly art classes and hold Open Studio hours from my home art studio, A Create Place. When teaching, I love learning about people's hopes, histories and styles. I enjoy helping people relax and learn skills and techniques that enable them to create art and paint without fear. One of the most rewarding aspects of creating custom art and design is the opportunity to design, refine and refresh client's walls and brands. We'll discover what you are "for" and what you are "not for." Then we'll work on creating imagery that communicates your message. Your art will be customized for your home or businesses color palette. Educational background is a degree in visual communication from The Ohio State University. General Pricing: Custom Recipe Illustration: $350 Custom Watercolor Art: $500 to $1,000 depending on the complexity of the project. Live Painting for weddings: $1500 Local Classes or Open Studio Time: $25 for 2 hour block Paint Parties: $30 per person (10 person or $300 minimum) Pricing for Custom Logo Package is: $450 package

My 10 year old daughter loves her art class with Mrs. Dahm. Caryn presents the watercolor art lesson in an easy to understand manner. My DD has learned and grown so much as an artist under Caryn's instruction and guidance. The art class is very lively and pleasant.

I have been taking lessons for a year from Caryn and I have learned so much! Caryn is an outstanding artist and she has a gift for teaching us the basics, then building on that to help us reach our potential in being artist's too. Her classes are informative, challenging and fun! Learning from Caryn has added a whole new world of discovering my own creativity!!

I can't imagine a more encouraging, fun and competent teacher! I went into Caryn's class with no art knowledge or experience. I was nervous to try new things but Caryn broke down the steps and inspired confidence so that I could complete the protect and even, at times, surprise myself with the pretty finished result. She makes learning fun and informative!

This is my first art class I've taken from Caryn; and I absolutely love it! She is an excellent instructor that I've learned so much from! She is so encouraging, helpful and extremely positive with all of her students! I couldn't ask for a better first experience!!

Background Check

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

    My art classes cost $15 per group class and $45 an hour for private art lessons. Creative services are bid on a per project bases. I'd be happy to speak with you over the phone, in person or via e-mail to decide if I am a good fit for you.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    If the customer is hiring me for classes, I typically provide an art theory lesson then paint with the student for what time is left and have them finish the piece for homework. If a client is interested in creative services, we meet first and discuss their art needs. Then I will provide a quote based on the amount of hours a project will take.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I attended The Ohio State University and studied visual communication under their design department.
