Frequently Asked Questions

I’d like to purchase one of your paintings. How do I go about this process?

Please contact me via my cell phone or email address as listed. Because paintings vary so much in size, medium, and substrate, I will contact you back to find out if you’d like any framing options and the best method to deliver your artwork to you. Shipping is not included in the pricing. I do require payment in full prior to shipping any artwork to you and will insure the packaging against damages.

What methods of payment do you accept?

For your security and mine, I accept personal checks and credit card payments.

Do you take commissions for artwork and what are your prices?

Absolutely! I have done many commissions and would be happy to discuss with you the type of artwork you’re interested in. In order to secure a commission request, 20% down payment is normally required unless the artwork requested is for a large scale piece or a piece that requires materials I don't normally have on hand. In that case, I will discuss with you prior to accepting the commission any fees involved. If I feel I am unable to complete the commission as you are requesting I may opt to not accept the commission. I will work with my clients on getting the artwork right, but must limit the number of changes/revisions to 3 check-in sessions depending on medium. I will talk more with you about this process in person. Prices for commissioned pieces are dependent on the size, substrate, medium, and framing options. I can give you quote after speaking with you on what exactly you are looking for.

Where do you ship artwork to?

At present, I only ship within the continental US.

Are prints of your artwork available?

They will be soon! Check back, as I am looking into working with a printer who can produce art quality prints on paper, canvas etc. in multiple sizes and also frame, matte and ship directly to you as well.

I’d like to schedule a Paint-Along class or fundraiser with you. Can you give me more information?

Call my cell phone as listed and I’d be happy to give you options on the canvas panel sizes available, minimum (5 people) - maximum (100 people) that can attend, and compare calendars for scheduling purposes.

Will you travel to me to teach a Paint-Along class?

I currently reside in Shippensburg, PA and cover a large area of south-mid-central PA and northern Maryland areas. Basically, an hour and a half drive for me at most if it’s a decent sized class. More than that and I would need to add an additional travel stipend to cover my expenses.

Will you do custom designs for classes?

Yes. I’m always adding new projects to my class line up. That being said, I will need time to mock up any new project so I do reserve the right to refuse if my schedule does not allow. At this time I do not charge anything for new designs so long as they are projects that I believe I can use for future classes.

How much advance notice do you need to schedule a class?

That varies depending on my calendar. The sooner the better as classes are first-come first-serve. I suggest 6-8 weeks if possible but will try to work you in whenever possible. Fall and winter tend to get very busy so don’t wait!
