Read reviews that mention:
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I am willing to negotiate my price with customers who have special requests outside of the hourly pay rate. I am willing to work an extra 15 minute, approximately, however it goes a half-hour over time, I will need to charge extra. I will add a small travel fee for any distance more than 30 miles from my home,
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
When a customer first contacts me, I will ask them more about the type of event I will be working at. The customer will then explain in more detail the kind of work they would like me to do. We will then talk about the set-up, and what I will need to bring to the event. If all this goes well, and we have a good connection, hopefully the customer will hire me for the event!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I hold a B.A. in Studio Art from Smith College. An Educator's License in elementary education, and taught for seven years in the Westfield, MA public school system. I have lived and traveled abroad working as a painter, portrait and caricature artist. Presently, I continue to create and exhibit my artwork. And I draw caricatures at Yankee Candle, in Deerfield, MA.
