My name is Katie Evans. I have been drawing since I was old enough to hold a pencil but have no formal art training. My talent is in drawing people in natural settings to capture who they really are. I draw from photos, but do not draw from professionally-taken photographs for two reasons. One, this is the photographer's art, not mine. Two, this does not capture the person's personality. My goal is customer satisfaction. I want each customer to look at their drawing and say "wow, that's my boy!" (or girl, kitty, or whatever).
Additional policies and FAQs
Photos must be clear and detailed. I like to approve all photos before I agree to drawing them to check for quality. Remember, the better the photo, the more satisfaction you will have with your drawing. I recommend choosing photos that show a person's/pet's personality. Also, I prefer close-ups (head and shoulders) as this allows me to capture the most detail. However, I may approve full body poses as well. Separate photos may be combined in a single drawing. For instance, this may for done to place a person in the photo that was not in the original, to remember someone who has passed, or to combine the good qualities from two or more different photos into one drawing.

Drawings are composed on either Strathmore 80 lb. drawing paper or Canson 96 lb. recycled bristol using graphite and sprayed with a fixative to prevent smudging.

How it works:
1) A photo is email to me through etsy for approval. I will either approve or request another photo. Please list any special instructions at this time (i.e. photo combinations, background requests, etc.)
2) For certain photos, I may email a sketch back to you for your approval before I begin the drawing.
3) A 30% nonrefundable deposit is required at this time for drawings costing over $75.
4) I will complete the drawing in 1-2 weeks.
5) A watermarked scan of the completed drawing will be emailed to you for review. Changes can be made at this point. However, if you are unhappy with it after reviewing it online, there is no further obligation. I will keep the drawing and your photo will be returned (if applicable).
6) Payment in full is required before the drawing is shipped. Once payment is received, the drawing will be shipped, insured via UPS.
