How it works
Step 1. Collaboration
We begin with a consultation to discuss your vision. When doing portraits, my preference is to have a photo session with the subject at no charge for local triangle residents. If at all possible, it is great to have a short life drawing opportunity to gather more information. I realize that sometimes we must work from client photos and in that case I collect as much as possible to assure a firm understanding of the subject. I then put together a written agreement that will specify all the details of the project to assure accurate communication and an understanding of expectations. Some of the details are size, frame or gallery wrap, costs, sales tax, photo references and client ideas. A 25% non-refundable deposit is collected before the work begins.
Step 2. Creation
Once all the details are worked out, the studio work begins. Using the finest, archival materials, I begin to create your vision with oil paint on linen.
Step 3. Celebration
As the work comes to completion, the client reviews the portrait. The end product should capture your moment and stand as a compelling work of art. I stand behind all of my work and guarantee 100% customer satisfaction. If for any reason you feel the work did not turn out as you hoped, I retain the painting and deposit and give a credit for the deposit amount to be used for the purchase of any original art on my website. All clients in the triangle area are offered an opportunity to celebrate with the artist by having an unveiling party with friends and family at their home. So that you can share with the ones you love, note cards and a coffee table books are also available for purchase.
Clients have the option of paying with cash, check or credit card. I also offer 3 and 6-month interest-free payment options. This is can be done electronically or through the mail. I will set up a billing schedule to suit your needs.
Gallery wrapped linen
Prices above include a gallery wrapped canvas that is wired and ready for hanging. Gallery wrapped canvas is generally 1.5 inches deep around the edges and is painted with the continuation of the painting around it or a solid color, depending on the client's choice.
You may choose to have your painting framed. This will need to be specified prior to painting. Framing options will be supplied at the time of ordering. Below are some sample prices and options to expect.
1 1/2” Black or Walnut
1 5/8” Gold or Silver
Whenever possible it is always best to take the photos of the subject myself. Photo sessions are included in the prices as long as subject is in the Triangle, NC area. I do use client photography in special cases but if the photos are hard to read, there will be an additional fee for the extra time needed.
All portrait and commission clients are given an opportunity to have an unveiling party. Aimee provides the client with printed invitations and she will come to your home and give a brief talk about the process and the story behind the painting. The client will provide the refreshments and venue.
