The next thing you'll want to look into is the price. My prices start by the square inch, so I can email a price list to you. This will help you choose a size that fits your home and your budget. We will both sign a very simple contract to agree on any special requests and a date that I will need to finish by, and I'll ask for 1/2 of the price up front.
The time it takes from start to finish depends on several things--my schedule, the time of the year, whether or not you have a deadline, and the size and scope of the project. We'll talk about all of that when we get started and I will keep you updated if anything changes.
Many of these steps will be similar with any custom work that I do or another artist does for you. I hope that seeing them laid out this way helps you to feel more comfortable with the possibility of purchasing custom art for your home! I am always open to answering questions, and will gladly send a price list with no pressure to buy. Just email me at LeaK@LeaKArts.com.
