Krista was SUCH a pleasure to work with. I can not recommend her work any more. She kept us updated along every step of the sketch and painting in case anything was missed.

We ordered a painting of my Grandmother's house that she grew up in as she recently had to move into an assisted living facility. It was a little difficult to find photos of the house as some remodeling has been done since she moved, however, Krista was able to work with the images and descriptions I sent to paint the most beautiful and perfect painting. Our entire family loves and my grandmother is going to be so excited to receive it for her Birthday/Mother's Day.

Thank you so much!!!!

BEAUTIFUL!! Krista goes above and beyond to make sure you're happy. She send preliminary sketches, and even sends 2 cards with the same image you bought on them. I was overwhelmed with joy when I opened the beautifully wrapped shipping package. She really puts so much thought into her work. Love it! Can't wait to give this gift!

Use her!! Working with her is a piece of cake. You'll be so happy you did.

My husband loved his first anniversary gift! Krista was great to work with - very detailed and communicative about the sketches and shipping. I would (and have already) highly recommend her to others looking for a keepsake house portrait.

FAQs

A high quality, (JPEG) preferably, nicely proportioned, front facing photo is best! And - yes - and iPhone/Android photo can be used. The front facade is important and a closeup of the front door can give me what I need.
No fee ~ I think adding an address, family name or special saying just adds more sentiment to the painting.

Sure ~ On the 8x10 and 11x14 sizing only ~ I tell all my clients that I'm *not* a pet artist but I will do my best. I'll need a nice clear photo of your pet. (A few of my listings show your beloved furry friends...)

Unfortunately, the smaller 5x7 painting won't allow for a pet....just too small for me to add.
Sometimes life happens and we need things quicker than expected. I'm happy to offer "rush" orders when my calendar permits. (The rush order only works if my upcoming weekend is free ~ so thank you for messaging me first)

*** Your "rush" order would be completed in 7 DAYS OR LESS and USPS Express Mail IS included in this rush fee **Contiguous US states only.

I charge this fee as my studio schedule is planned each week with sketch, painting and drying times along with trips to the post office.

My rush fee is $125 and *includes* - USPS Express Mail service. {{ One day service to large metro hubs - two day service to very rural areas}}. *You may seriously consider delivery to your work address*
Possibly ~~~~ Occasionally I place my shop in "vacation mode" to catch up on my painting queue. As a small business owner, I handle the orders, messages, bookkeeping, painting (FUN) and shipping myself and in an effort to concentrate on your order, I will refrain from accepting additional orders to stay on schedule.

The November/December timeframe is very busy. I do keep my schedule updated with my current queue in my Announcement section.

I will not accept orders that I cannot complete in time. Upgraded shipping costs are usually required to get the painting to your doorstep.

As always, message me with any additional questions.
Here's a nugget of insight on choosing the best portrait size....

My most popular size is the 8 x 10" painting with the 11 x 14" mat.... it is the perfect size for clients to hang anywhere. It allows for painting details not found in my smaller size.

5 x 7" portraits with an 8 x 10" mat .... a lovely way to capture your home with slightly less details. No pets in these paintings ~ sorry.

The 11 x 14" exquisite size ~ allows me to capture the most details. This painting comes in a raw edge state and can be custom matted and framed by you or your professional local framer. Paper size is 12 X 16" with a white border on the perimeter to allow proper matting.
