Frequently asked questions
What mediums do you work in?
I work in graphite pencil (black & white), color pencil, water color, acrylic, and oils. Depending on what you are looking for, I can help you determine the best medium for your subject.
What's the best photo to use?
I understand that selecting the right photo can be one of the most difficult parts of the process and I'm here to help. You may send me a photo or e-mail me 3-5 photos (or even a full album if you want) and I will let you know which photos I think would work best for your piece of art. I can also provide suggestions on the types of photos that work well for your particular occasion and recipient. Usually, resolution won't matter, so a photo taken from social media will work. However, clarity and proximity within the photo is important.
Can you combine multiple photographs into one portrait?
Do I get to see the work before I pick it up/it ships?
How long does it take?
Generally, I will get your artwork to you or the recipient within 3 weeks or less from the time the final photograph is selected. Some circumstances may change that timeline. For example, I allow you to make the final call on the artwork and make unlimited revisions to your portrait. I won’t deliver the artwork until you are thrilled with it, so depending on how long any revisions take, the delivery timeline may shift slightly.
