Most of my life I've dreamed of painting portraits of children or illustrating children's books, and recently this fantasy of mine has come true. I've accepted several commissions in the folk art style of Are You a Good Witch , an 15" X 30" mixed media painting on wood, and I've decided to start a new project: mixed media folk art portraits by commission.
If you are interested, take a look at my portfolio on Flickr or at my shop on Etsy to get an idea of my style and range. You can contact me via e-mail, Flickr mail or Etsy with any questions or to discuss specifics, such as size, palette, price, and you can also send me photos of your subject. Please allow 6-8 weeks for completion, since I do have a full-time day job teaching school. When summer break comes, I may be able to work a little faster. Payments will be made in two parts: half up front and the other half, plus shipping, upon completion.
I'm very, very excited about this because I've been drawing my little ones since about fourth grade. Those of you who remember which birthday I celebrated this year, know exactly how long ago that was! I am so looking forward to talking to you about your ideas
