I went to Kate in December and asked her to paint fairies on my daughter's bedrooms walls. When she came to look at the room, we discussed that I really would prefer to move into a bigger house in the next couple years. She suggested that she do a painting on a canvas instead of on the walls so I would be able move the painting anywhere I wanted. Well - DUH! This was a great idea! So she started sketching out what she was picturing based on what I told her I wanted.
I showed our favorite fairy artist, Mary Ciceley Barker, and showed her a book that I love that has fairies living in mushroom houses. The next week she showed me this sketch to see if she was heading in the right direction -
We made a few adjustments - and then she started painting. Then she sent me this photo - to make sure she was still going the direction I wanted -
Then this one a few days later -
Then she showed up one day with this amazing painting that my daughter loves so much that she says goodnight to the fairies almost every night!
I was so nervous about paying someone so much money for something I hadn't seen yet - and Kate made all my concerns disappear with her amazing communication through the entire process! And she gives everyone the same service - whether it is a portrait, wall mural or canvas painting like above! If you have a custom piece or a bare wall that needs a special look on it contact Kate through us here at ARTifacts - see what she can make special for you!
