Here is how it works -- I paint on a flat sheet of canvas that is ready to pop into a frame. If you want it on a stretched canvas or on masonite or another material, please let me know in advance. It will be a little extra (not much!) The same goes for sculptures, cake toppers, and Munny Dolls. Just let me know your minion, erm, I mean your medium of choice! I welcome as little or as much input as you would like to put into the commission. Some people know exactly what they want while others aren't sure, but they do know that they want a dark little dearies of their own! I am pretty good at asking questions and just going for it. I will send you a progress scan after I get started so you can see if I have the right idea. You get to okay the final commission and make any changes you'd like. I want YOU to be happy with the creation! I do ask for half the payment up front. Insured Priority Shipping is included in the US. The remainder is to be paid after you okay the final. I send the painting after the payment received in full. I prefer PayPal. If you want the painting finished by a specific date, please let me know in advance. Otherwise, I will likely take 4-6 weeks since I am juggling so many projects. If it is a rush or you need a quicker turn around, there may be an additional fee. I will see what I can do! I think that's it in general! Please e-mail me if you have any questions!

5"x7" SAMPLES - Single Characters with simple backgrounds


Want to Commemorate your pet in the Day of the Dead style?
I get tons of requests to paint pets, both living and deceased in the Day of the Dead style. These start at the 8"x10" size or larger depending on the amount of detail required.


12"x16" and Up Samples
If you would like a portrait of your with your pet in either a realistic or a big eye style, these start in the 12"x16" size. There is a lot more detail involved in painting faces and fur. They also take more time to complete. I can paint your family in flesh and fur or as Skellies!



These are fully realized Skellies but done in a a more petite style to fit on top of your wedding cake. They fit great on top tiers that are usually 6" across. The Skellies stand at about 8" tall. They have a much greater presence than your traditional cake toppers. They make great show pieces. After the wedding, my clients remove them from their cakes and keep them as an art piece in their homes.





The toy company Kidrobot who produces limited edition vinyl toys, created the Munny -- a blank character for artists to customize by drawing, painting, piercing, you name it!

This is how my Munny looked when I first received it! It was completely blank and up to me to decide what to do with it:) It's up to your imagination what it will be!
