- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I price my time by the average number of faces I can draw in an hour. It's usually about 8-10 faces an hour in black and white, so I used the lower estimate to keep things fair.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I was born with a gift for drawing faces. Even before starting kindergarten, it was obvious I had a love and a talent for faces. I was fascinated with drawing everyone I could. My teachers, classmates, family, and my own reflection. I even won 2 national competitions by the time I was 7. when I turned 17, I applied for a job drawing portraits at Six Flags and received training to quicken my pace as well as how to draw caricatures.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?
I was born with an artistic gift and practiced drawing faces as often as I could. It wasn't until I started working Six Flags and Sea World at 17 years old where I began to receive more training on drawing portraits and caricatures.
