What is the best way to contact you?
If you have a question, suggestion, or just want to chat with me, the best way to be in touch is through the contact form on this website. (You’ll find one at the bottom of this page.) My Facebook Messenger gets a little backlogged and I don’t love phone calls. I am on Voxer and Marco Polo, if you enjoy those things.
Do you accept commissions?
Absolutely! Commissioned Prayer Paintings are the heart of my work. You can read all about that right there.
What are your payment terms?
I paint when payment is received and I do not offer refunds for any reason. You may submit payment through PayPal, using the Purchase Now buttons on this site, or via personal check (contact me for this option.) If you need a payment plan, I am happy to receive your payment in installments, simply contact me to arrange it.
Are you interested in being contacted by galleries, agents, or boutique owners?
Yes! I love getting my work out into the world - in spaces traditionally known for artwork as well as nontraditional spaces. I have shown and sold work in churches, boutiques, art galleries, and yoga studios. If you’d like to hang my work, please let me know.
Do you teach workshops?
I lead Prayer Paintings workshops and meditation retreats in your space or at your gathering. Please contact me to discuss the possibilities
How long does it take for you to complete a painting?
There’s no hard and fast answer to this question. Prayer painting is an intuitive process. Some paintings come in very quickly and some take a little more time. I paint in order of requests received. You will most likely have your painting in your hands within 2-3 weeks of purchase.
I look forward to hearing from you.
