Frequently Asked Questions:

What is your painting style?
How are portraits done?
I will meet with you both and I may draw a few sketches so that I can have a true reference of your features. You will provide me with the photograph from which you'd like me to paint your Double Portrait.
Who are your influences from the art world?
My favorites are Pierre Bonnard, William Merritt Chase, and John Singer Sargent.
What if my wedding is outside of Northern Michigan?
Why should I hire you to live paint at my wedding, event, or paint portraits?
Are live wedding paintings something new?
I would like a painting that's not from an event or wedding. Will you do that? How does that work?
I absolutely create work outside of events and weddings, and have completed many commissions. I ask that you fill out the Contact form where you can give me an idea of what you have in mind, and we will set up a phone consultation where you can provide more details. I will send you some sketches initially, and continue to send you photos of my progress throughout the process.
