GRAPHITE - COLORED PENCIL - DIGITAL
One of my earliest memories of my journey as an artist is me sitting down with the latest issue of Teen Vogue and a pad of sticky notes. I would mark the pages with interesting photographs- Rhianna in a glittery dress, converse shoes, a woman yelling into an old-timey microphone. After I picked the best photos, I would get to work recreating them in my sketchbook with mechanical pencils. I glowed with pride when I showed my parents and teachers.
That pride is magnified tenfold when I see the emotions brought forth by my drawings now. I love working with people to create a drawing that they (or the receiver) will cherish for a lifetime. Whether I am drawing pets or people, I'm honored that people share their favorite moments and memories of loved ones with me.
ARE YOU READY TO COMMISSION A DRAWING?
CLICK THE BUTTON BELOW TO COMPLETE AN INQUIRY FORM ABOUT YOUR DRAWING. WHEN FINISHED, I'LL USE THE INFORMATION YOU PROVIDED TO CREATE A PRICE QUOTE BEFORE WE GET STARTED!
(Don't worry--you are not committing to a drawing at this time, the form just helps me organize the commission requests I have coming in and create accurate price quotes)
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
CAN YOU DRAW WHITE OR MOSTLY WHITE DOGS?
Yes! If you have a white dog, I recommend a drawing on grey-toned paper or on wood!
CAN YOU DRAW LONG-HAIRED PETS?
Yes, and they are my favorite to draw, specifically huskies (though I might be a little biased because I have 2.5 of my own).
HOW MUCH DO THE DRAWINGS COST?
Prices vary and a lot goes into determining the cost, honestly. This is why I ask so many questions in the commission inquiry form. I want to create a complete understanding of your dream drawing, so I can give you an accurate price quote.
Generally, speaking a 6"x8" graphite drawing on paper will start at $50. On average, drawings cost between $80-150.
HOW DO I PAY?
I currently accept Venmo and cash (in-person). To begin a drawing, I require a deposit of at least 50% of the total drawing cost. I am looking into other options, let me know if Venmo doesn't work for you.
IS SHIPPING INCLUDED IN THE COST?
Shipping is free within the United States for orders over $50. I just do standard shipping with USPS. If you would like priority shipping or another shipping option that is okay, I just ask you to cover the cost of the difference. Purchaser must pay shipping in full for international orders.
IS THERE A DISCOUNT IF I AM LOCAL AND YOU DON'T NEED TO SHIP IT?
DO YOU DRAW DIRECTLY ON THE WOOD? HOW DOES IT 'STICK'?
I do. If you think about it, paper is really just wood, so drawing on wood and paper is not that different. The biggest difference is the texture of the wood grain.
DO YOUR DRAWINGS FADE?
All drawings are sprayed with an archival-quality "final fixative" covering, which protects the drawing from fading. This keeps them looking new for years to come. The owner of the drawings must keep them out of direct sunlight and moisture.
One thing to note is the bark on raw edge wood is very fragile and can flake off fairly easily if it is hit or dropped.
IS A FRAME OR HANGING HARDWARE INCLUDED?
DO YOU OFFER DISCOUNTS IF I AM BUYING MORE THAN ONE DRAWING?
PET PORTRAIT ORNAMENTS
The same amount of love that goes into any custom pet portrait, just miniature. These are a huge hit for the holidays, but I've also heard people say they would hang them from their pets' leash hooks year-round, too.
