Like many artists, I do other work for additional
income. I have over 30 years of experience in the computer industry in
various capacities including
technical and marketing writer, editor, graphics artist, and web site designer.
I offer the following services to artists:
Web site creation and maintenance
I charge by the hour for this service. A typical web site might cost
$900-1500 and generally takes 2-4 weeks. The cost depends on things
like how organized your materials are, whether you have digital scans of
your work, and how large the site is. You can see examples of my web
site designs by going to these sites:
<this web site>
Scans of your slides on CD
I have a Nikon Coolscan 4000 multipass scanner that makes accurate scans of
slides. If you'd like to archive your work, having your slides scanned
and the information "frozen" on CD is a good way to permanently
store your work. Scans are also used for web sites and are handy for
sharing with your friends and family.
Designing your exhibit
I can make your announcements distinctive!
It's fairly easy to do your own postcards, but if you want something that
stands out and represents you, I can help.
Writing/designing your art materials
Your art materials - resume, artist statement, and so
on - reflect who you are as well as your level of professionalism.
If you need help with writing your resume, artist statement, prints of your
work, or formatting them in a distinctive way, I can help write and design
them for you.
Prints of your work on high-quality archival
I can create high-quality prints of your work which can be very helpful for
showing galleries and promoting your work.
If you are interested in any of these services, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Generally, I charge by the hour. The rate depends on the particular
service and level of expertise required. A payment plan can be negotiated
if necessary, and possibly even a trade for services. For instance, I can
always use help with stretching canvases and framing.
