Questions & Answers
Q: What advice would you give to a customer looking to hire a company like yours?
A: The commissioning process can seem overwhelming, but it's really about knowing what you need and communicating it. Spending some time thinking about what you need the art to do, what you want your art to look like, how long you expect it to last, and how much detail you want. This will help you get matched with the right artist at a reasonable rate. No artist can be everything to everyone, but prioritizing your expectations will help you maximize your money and receive the best work for your budget! Do online research into the creative that you're hiring. Look at their LinkedIn, their online portfolio, and any reviews to get a feel for where they are in their career. Ask about their commission contract, especially for commercial jobs. Also ask about their materials - are they light or weather resistant? Do they provide a sketch? Do they charge hourly or by the square foot? Comparing these qualities will help you compare providers.

Q: What is the most common type of project or service your company provides?
A: I'm not a starving artist because my project types are diverse. Portraits, especially of pets, are commonly requested, as are murals for businesses. I receive a lot of requests for live event painting and portraiture around holidays. I receive more request for art lessons during winter.

Q: In what ways is your company environmentally friendly?
A: I use artist's quality, eco-friendly materials in my art. I live by the Japanese idea of Mottainai, or regret of waste. I also donate 10% of each project to a local nonprofit toward educational, environmental, animal, or social welfare goals.

Q: What would you like your customers to know about your company?
A: I'm an artist and a business professional. I want to produce beautiful things, but also create them on time and under budget. The services I've listed are there because a referred client would ask, "Can you do this?" I research, practice, and share the results. The answer is usually "Yes", because I do the research and the work to make it happen. I provide a commission contract for every project, so we are both aware of the scope of work, deadlines, budget, and expectations.

Q: What is your company best known for?
A: I'm known for speed of delivery and high-contrast visual designs. I have painted during concerts and in freezing temperatures in the dead of winter in Alaska - if you want live event painting or quick turnaround, I'm your artist.

Q: What separates your company from the competition?
A: A lot of artists don't know how to earn an income from their art because they lack experience in the business world. I know how to interview people to find out what they're looking for, and the industry experience to meet deadlines and budget requirements. When I get stuck, I'm a self-starter that will research how to overcome the challenge. There are many artists with more skill than I have, but fewer know how to succeed at making art into an occupation. This professionalism makes the commissioning and booking process more streamlined and userfriendly.

Q: Does your company offer a warranty or guarantee?
A: I don't start a project until we have a concept sketch and a commission contract with deadlines and and outline clearly defined. I'll spend the time we need to get there and make sure that you like what you receive, and I always ask for reviews on online outlets. I also follow industry standard practices for projects, such as archival materials for fine art and insurance on distribution.

Q: What questions do customers most frequently ask you? What is your answer?
A: "Can you do X?" Each request is different. The more detailed customers are about what they want, what it's for, what their budget is, how long they want the piece to last, and so on, the better I can answer that question. I never agree to a commission without having a conversation with the client, and no one is locked in until the contract is signed and work starts.

Q: Does your company offer discounts to senior citizens or veterans?
A: Situationally, yes. I'm a veteran myself, and I've offered discounts to nonprofits and people serving vulnerable populations. I've also offered volunteer art instruction through the Salvation Army. I believe in giving back to my community, and 10% of my fee goes toward a nonprofit.
