I’d like you to paint my character/idea. How do I contact you?
Send me an email: kat@kathrynwhiteford.com and I’ll reply as soon as possible, normally within a day.

What happens after I contact you?
We’ll discuss your idea/requirements, the medium you prefer, the price and how long it’ll take to complete.

Personal vs Commercial Artworks
The information below is for personal/non-commercial artworks only. If your artwork is for commercial purposes (book covers, spot illustrations, etc), please let me know in the first email.

For artworks over US$150, you can choose to pay in two installments. The first payment will be half of the artwork cost and is non-refundable.

For artworks under US$150, full payment must be made up front.

How long will it take?
Artworks vary depending on the size, medium, how detailed the artwork is, how quickly we communicate and your chosen shipping method (if required). As a general rule, the artworks themselves take between 1-4 weeks for completion.
