Sally’s approach to working with clients and her process
Sally has worked with many types of clients from home owners to major architecture and design firms, as well as city municipalities.
Sally works with each one to figure out their individual project needs. Sally believes that a great piece of commissioned art is a process of working with the client to achieve the lasting beauty they are looking for.
Sally starts the process by giving a detailed bid based upon an hourly rate of $60.00 an hr. which includes some rough designs of the project.
If the project calls for it, further color renderings are produced for a fee.
Once the design and colors are finalized Sally starts the piece with a 50% down payment the rest due upon completion.
Sally uses the Old World traditions of painting in layers of glazes. She paints a under painting first to set the tone of the work. She builds up the layers to create depth and range of color for the piece.
She can work within a wide range of styles as well as medium.
Sally has scheduled meetings within the painting process to keep the client updated and abreast of the project and it’s completion.
There is a final review of the piece. Sally believes that when the piece is finished it brings lasting beauty for generations.
