Common FAQ

Do you paint in any other mediums besides oil?

I have painted in watercolor, acrylic and pastel in the past, but I have focused on oils for more than 10 years.  It’s my favorite medium because of the richness of colors and the look and feel of what I’m trying to accomplish.

I see most of your work is small.  Can you paint large?

Yes, I have painted several mural size works in the past.  I have painted small, mostly 16×20 and smaller because of several reasons.  First, I travel a lot and it’s easier to manage smaller pieces when traveling.  Second, I like the intimacy of small works but I plan to paint larger works in the near future.

Do you accept commissions?  What are your terms?

Yes!  50% is due up front and 50% due at completion.  Deposit is nonrefundable.  This enables your commitment and trust in me to deliver your painting with the highest of expectations.  Satisfaction with the completed piece is of the utmost importance. I make the process simple and fun.  You can request adaptation at no charge. I will work with you until you are deliriously happy with the painting.  International shipping available. If you are giving the portrait as a gift, I can also hand-write a card for the recipient.

Do you teach private or group lessons?

Yes, I can do both!  I love teaching. I have 25 years of painting experience with locations in the USA, Korea, Taiwan, Vietnam and Thailand. I have also taught for 3 years, often fusing English and Art to make it a uniquely fun experience. I enjoy passing my knowledge of art and life to my students.  I will have a new art studio in Ft. Collins, Colorado in March, 2017 where I can teach and help you express your voice.  I also plan to teach private/group workshops outdoors, as it’s essential to learn directly from nature.

I would love to collect your work.  Do you have payment plans to purchase your art?

Yes, I can arrange a monthly payment plan that will suit your budget.  I want you to value my art in your life and shine like a beacon of hope in your home.  It’s an investment of the soul, and nothing replaces a true, handmade, original piece of art.  I am not one of those “slick” salesmen.  I’m an honest, working-class artist committed to my craft and I enjoy selling directly to my customers without any middleman involved.
