Thanks to internet technology, commissions are easily achieved over long distances.
Cate can work from your photograph, provided it has a high-enough resolution & detail. If you live within reasonable travel distance from RI she can take a photograph for you.
Commissions take a considerable amount of time, 20 to 40 hours, or more.
Most custom pieces range in price (typically $300 to 600+) depending on preparation, overall size & complexity, as well as matting, framing plus any shipping costs.
Art in Rhode Island is sales tax free!
Cate personally handles all framing & matting in her studio. Illustrations are expertly-framed with dust covers, bumper guards, felt pads over screwheads & tape over wire edges protect walls.
She offers custom labels for the back of her illustrations that contains a brief explanation of the art & artist. One label is adhered on the dust cover & another inside to the art backer-board.
Client's can add a special message, which is especially nice when giving as a gift.
