- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Immediately clients would like an estimate, which is fine. However, it’s easier for me to get an idea of cost after having a few questions answered myself. I like to treat each job as a unique opportunity. After giving the client my flat rate if desired, we can discuss my availability. Then, we can move on to subject matter. Cost of materials.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have some college education in studying Illustration at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. I never finished due to high expenses, but the experience has stuck with me. My training includes assisting my mentor Peyton Scott Russel with a handful of mural jobs. I also have some experience with helping him assist teaching an art class at Harambe Elementary School in Saint Paul. I have experience with poly tab work, hands-on teaching with spray paint and art class related jobs along with mural work.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?
My mentor names Peyton Scott Russell really inspired me to paint murals. He invited me to help assist him with a few jobs in the summer of 2020. When I was very young, I would carry a sketch pad and pencil with me everywhere I’d go. All the time people would tell me I’m going to be an artist when I grew up. Now that I’m grown up, I’m making that idea into a profession.
