She’s made my nursery come alive. I wanted real life tree branches to come out of my babies name above her crib. I wanted to glue faux flowers to them. She nailed it. She got the color perfect and they look so life like. She was a blessing really great price for the work she did. I would Definitely recommend her if you need any mural for a wall.Jul 5, 2020Verified
Theresa painted a mural at my workplace and not only is it beautiful, it is packed with meaning. I walk passed it daily and to this day, am still finding new aspects of her mural to appreciate.Oct 31, 2019Review from Google
Theresa painted a pet portrait of my dog Truman. It is so beautiful, and holds a place of honor in our home. She captured his spirit perfectly. Theresa is supremely talented, and highly recommended.Oct 30, 2019Review from Google

Tess Parker is unbelievably creative. I have been buying her paintings for years and even had here paint some custom pieces. I cant say enough great things. Her art work is so refreshing and innovative. I love her techniques and her style.Jan 5, 2020Review from Google

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I have a set standard price list for portrait commissions based on number of figures (ex: how many pets, people) and size, starting at 12"x12" single figure at $100 plus tax fees. I offer 5% discounts and no tax to veterans and military service members. I also offer small discounts to returning/frequent customers. FREE SHIPPING! FREE MURAL ESTIMATES!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?FOR PORTRAIT AND PAINTING COMMISSIONS: I require a $40 deposit. I work with the commissioner/buyer to come up with their ideal piece, taking into consideration the following: background, exact photo replica or aspects from multiple photos, additional content (example: dogs favorite toy) to come up with a design. I then complete the painting, often sending photos of the painting process as I am working on it to ensure customer satisfaction. Upon completion I accept the remaining payment in full and immediately either ship or deliver painting for free. Pick up is also available if preferred. FOR MURALS: This process varies based on space and commissioner. Mural estimates are completely free - I will either come visit space in person or require photographs and dimensions of the space and discuss ideas and desires with potential customer. If we decide to move forward with project I would then submit a small scale rough sketch of design to customer for them to approve before moving forward. I also provide clients with a satisfaction guarantee statement and a small amount of paperwork to protect both client and myself to ensure both parties are completely satisfied with the process and product.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a Bachelors of Science in Psychology and Fine Art, as well as a Masters Degree in Creative Arts Therapy and over a decade of experience working in fine arts and over five years experience working professionally in the mental health field, mainly inpatient psychiatry and inpatient rehab. SIDE NOTE: Ethically, I cannot work with/for and/or create any artwork with any current or previous patients I have worked with as a Creative Arts Therapist, whether through my private practice on an outpatient basis nor through any inpatient facilities.
