WHAT MY CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
"It's going to look amazing on the wall at the cottage. I just love it! Thanks so much."
"We just got home and love the paddle in person! Thanks! I can't wait to put it up at the cottage."
"Can’t say enough about how happy we are with the results. An amazing artist and a great new addition to our cottage."
Paddle and design selection: I select the paddle I'm going to use based on the design created from a reference image. My reference images are sourced from my client’s designs, my collection of photos, or from a hand-picked group of Photographers that I follow and work with online.
Design printing and wood sealing: Once the digital design is completed, I print it and overlay it onto the paddle. When the design looks right for what I want to achieve, I start preparing the paddle. This involves sealing the wood first then applying two coats of Gesso. Once the paddle is dry, I sketch the design by hand and use acrylics as my painting medium.
Paddle and design painting: Once completed, I paint the back of the paddle black, sign it, and name it. Then I apply two coats of clear varnish. Each step needs to dry before moving forward to the next step. The result is always rewarding.
Shipping & Delivery: The paddle is packed and shipped to the client wherever they may be.
