Q. How much does it cost?
A: Pricing starts from £499 but vary depending on the event and what is required. Special rates apply to charity events. Please request a quote to obtain an estimate for your event.
Q. How does it work exactly?
A. Prior to the event we will discuss your ideas and details. On the day I will set up my easel in a corner and I will paint throughout the event. I will take snapshots as a reference so guests do not have to pose for me.
The paintings can be displayed immediately for the guests to enjoy there and then. They can then be handed out on the day or delivered/posted at a later date.
Q. How much room do you need?
A. I do not require a lot of space, just enough for my easel and my art materials. I am very mobile and I can also work with a sketchpad on my lap.
Q. How long does it take to create a painting?
A: I work very fast. On average it takes 30 minutes to paint one person but a stylised fashion illustration takes considerably less time.
Q. What medium do you work with?
A: I use mixed media including gouache, graphite pencil, collage, ink, water colour, pencil and pastel on heavyweight watercolour paper.
Q. Do I get to take the artworks home immediately?
A: Yes this is possible. All the artwork will be mounted first and it can be taken home on the day or posted to you afterwards.
Q. Can I influence what gets painted on the day?
A. Yes of course! Please let me know in advance the key people you would like me to capture on the day and I will make sure this gets done.
Q. Do you offer replicas of the artworks?
A. Yes. Artwork can be scanned and reproduced for collages, thankyou cards and prints. Please contact me with your enquiry.
Q. Do you frame the artwork?
A. Every painting comes in a mount with the location and date written on it using calligraphy. I am afraid I do not offer a framing service.
Q. When do I get the finished artworks?
A. It is possible to take the artwork away on the day. It will be mounted with a backing board and placed in a plastic sleeve for protection. Or I can post the artwork to you afterwards.
Q. Will you travel? How far?
A. Yes. Please get in touch and let me know your fabulous location, anywhere in the world. There is no charge for travel within 30 miles radius of Winchester.
