What is my working procedure?
I arrive at the venue  a couple of hours early, liaise with the venue management and planners, and begin painting before the guests start to arrive so that when they do, I can start putting them into the painting … and for wedding ceremonies, when a bride and groom arrive, they “walk into their painting”.
I paint what I can actually observe, as it is happening.  So if there is something you would like to have painted, please make sure that I can see it.

What medium do I work in?
The paintings oil paintings, on canvas or board, using archival quality materials.

How long does it take to complete a painting?
Usually my paintings are completed on the spot and displayed for your guests to see.   If I think a painting needs to go further,I will  work on it in my studio.

How much space do I need?
My set up in very compact.  Depending on the size of painting/s 4 ft x7 ft is a good size and I need to be in a spot where I can see what is going into your paintingI am required to pain.

How do you book me?
CALL JOAN  TEL:  302.475-0990
I can answer your questions and when I know more about your venue and schedule we can talk about what I can do for you.    Once you have decided to book me, I will ask for a security deposit to save the date for you.  Don’t worry if you haven’t decided on which and what paintings you would like me to ... we can discuss that later .... the most important thing is to secure your date.   It has often been my experience that everybody wants to book me on the same day !!

Then what happens ?
We will discuss what I can do for you, your input and ideas, the venue and the painting options, such as the best place to me to set up...
The venue management team will need to know that I am coming and be prepared to work with me to be able to set up out of their way.  We all understand that I can’t interfere with their hospitality duties and  I am always happy to talk to them in the planning stages, and I usually arrive a couple of hours ahead of the event in order to establish my set up and make myself known.   I will also sketch out my ideas for you so that we can work together to create your vision.
