Questions I'm asked all the time..

How many pictures do you need to create a collage heart?

My most beautiful designs are made from no fewer than 40 images. 50 is a good starting point. For the larger canvas sizes, you can even do more, around 70-80. Often times I find the most pressing problem my clients have is editing down the number of images they send me!  I use each and every image I’m sent once, and ensure there are no repeats.

How do I get my photos to you Lali?

You can upload your photos directly on my website here.

Do my photos need to be high-resolution images?

No.  They just need to be photos!  I’ve created pieces of art using images from Facebook and Instagram, as well as regular photos, and scans of very old photos indeed.  I digitally correct and enhance each image so it looks its very best; though if they weren’t of a reasonable starting quality to begin with (think blurry, thumbs over the lens, overexposed/underexposed) I’m very limited as to how much improvement I can make.

I LOVE you work!  So, can I get this by Friday?

Just as it takes a lot of time to search for the perfect gift, and it takes time to review each image you provide, arrange them in the perfect way, and have your final canvas or print produced to your specification.  I pride myself on creating designs to be treasured, and I care about producing work that is superb, not just so, so.   

Once I receive your images via Dropbox, I will provide you with an image proof within 7 days.  Once you approve the proof image, canvases will ship within 4 days, and prints ship sooner.

All in all, I recommend you allow 10-14 days, at the very most, for your canvas/print to arrive, though rush proofs and priority shipping are available at additional cost. 

Can I see a proof of the image before I commit to the order?

All pieces must be paid for in full at the point that orders are placed.  If you’ve reviewed my portfolio and like my style of work, you can be assured you’ll be pleased with your final image.  

From time to time customers have requested to have each and every one of their photos positioned according to their exact specification; from experience I have found that the best designs are produced when I customize the design, taking into account the overall aesthetic, to ensure the final work is pleasing to the eye.

I am committed to working with you to address any elements of the proof design that you’re not happy with during the design process to ensure your final piece meets your expectations. 

How will my canvas/print be delivered?

All canvases and prints are delivered wrapped in plastic, and packaged in strengthened cardboard casings.  No invoices or payment information are enclosed inside the packaging.
