FAQ- Frequently Asked Questions
How can I request a commission?
I take all requests officially through my website, email, and DM. If you try to request a piece any other way (ex: commenting on a post) I will not take that as a serious inquiry. If you would like something, please be explicit in requesting it in the mentioned ways.
How much will it cost to ship my painting?
It depends on the size/weight of the piece. If you live in the local Dallas area you have the option to pick up your painting instead if you would like.
Why do your paintings cost so much?
As much as I would love to sell all of you my art at unit prices while barely paying myself, I simple cannot do that and neither can other artists. We love you and love making paintings for you but behind the scenes, we're paying a lot more (both time and money) than you might expect. By bargaining or complaining of my prices, you are not only ignoring the labor and years of skill honed to make that product, you also ignore the amount of money businesses put out just to buy the supplies to make those things. "But I can make that myself too"- okay, go ahead, but I promise you it won't be "the same" as an original and you'll end up spending much more than you thought. Please only message me if you really want to buy from me, not to bargain prices. Small artists and businesses put a lot of time and effort into their work and by trying to bargain you are ignoring my efforts and not respecting my craft. With that being said, thank you to everyone who supports me- it means the world!
How long does it take to finish a commission?
It depends on the size/complexity of the painting. Smaller paintings are a bit quicker to finish than large ones, but I give an average time of 2-3 weeks (or longer for larger paintings) to finish a commission. I will usually message you if I finish a commission early. I also work full time in addition to painting, so please keep that in mind when you request a custom. If you need a painting by a certain date, please let me know in advance so that I may have enough time to complete it.
