Things I get asked sometimes:
Why don't you list your prices online?
Now I do! Up until recently, I didn't sell much of my own work myself or have a significant inventory on hand, and it felt too complicated to keep everything updated properly. These things are all changing, so I've adjusted to be more transparent and helpful to potential clients. Pricing can be found in the captions of images on my available works page. (If you are curious about past pieces in my portfolio section, please reach out, as I'll have to dig for some of those!)
Do you do commissions?
Absolutely! I get inquiries about sold works often, which is a wonderful compliment. Though I cannot replicate pieces, I can recreate similar feelings, compositions, colors and styles into a personalized and unique artwork to fit your space. Pricing for commissions is typically 20% more than off-the-wall pieces of a comparable style & size. Shoot me an email for more information or to get started!
Do you ship?
Yes! I have mastered the art of safe transport of my work. (Unfortunately, not internationally or to Hawaii & Alaska...yet) The cost varies quite a bit depending on the size and where it's headed. Range so far has been $25 for a small piece up to $250 for a big ol' baby, and I tack that on at the end once all the details are worked out. Of course, if you're local or visiting Austin, you can purchase and pick up work at my showroom at Canopy. (by appointment--I'm flexible!)
I've never bought art before....How do I start the process?
If you see something you like, simply send me an email or give me a call. We can set up a meeting for you to see the piece in person, or I can send more photos. If you want to see it in your space before committing, we could arrange that, too. (Locals only) No matter the size, purchasing art is kind of a big deal--take your time deciding, and buy art you love!
How do we pay you?
I love checks (no processing fees!) but I also love the convenience of finally having a Square Reader to accept cards! PayPal is quick and easy too. So there are options!
Do you sell prints?
Sometimes! Each year in November I do a run of archival open-edition reproductions of various images as a low-cost art-collecting option for visitors to the East Austin Studio Tour. They are sized and matted for easy framing, and are typically $40 each for an 11x14. I always have some left over, but it's not something I regularly do year-round. My focus is original art for now, but I'll try to keep my available works page updated for the ones I still have!
Who frames your work?
Currently: myself, and Jody at Fine Art Services in Austin. I am versed in proper archival framing but have limited resources/options, so custom-sized and large pieces go to Jody. He's awesome.
What are your favorite colors?
All the fiery pinks of the most intense sunsets and the full spectrum of sparkly blues in deep, pure waters.
