Frequently Asked Questions
FINE ART + PHOTOGRAPHY
Do you offer framing?
Yes, we do! Details can be found below and under each piece description in my shop. All framing is custom, made by hand in the USA. Please allow an additional 2-3 weeks for delivery.
What are the dimensions of the mats and frames?
Smaller prints include a custom cut white core mat. For the Drift Study framing, we use a "float mount" instead of a standard cut mat* - see samples in the item description. If you prefer a standard cut mat or have a special request, please contact me and I am happy to help.

- 5x7" print matted to 8x10"

What is a float mount?
With "float mounting," the artwork will look like it's hovering or floating over the backing board. When floating, first we attach the art to an acid-free foam core lift, hidden behind the work and mounted to a supporting 4-ply white mat. The result is a look that keeps the art "floated" in the center of the frame.
What is your return/exchange policy?
All artwork and prints are final sale. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you shoot commercial work too?
If you look at my design portfolio, you will notice the strong use of photography which I attribute to my photography background. However, I do not shoot commercially - I collaborate with some amazing commercial photographers for design work.
For media inquiries, interviews or collaborations, please email me at email@example.com.
Why should I hire a graphic designer?
Professional graphic design is not for every business or every individual. High-quality brand styling and design will elevate your identity and provide a level of consistency, professionalism and sophistication that can be missing in DIY approaches. The end result is going to differentiate you from your competitors, set a precedent of expertise and authority, and make your business stand apart.
What is your availability and how long does the branding process take?
By accepting a limited number of clients, I am able to give each project and person my complete, devoted attention. I am typically booked 4-6 weeks in advance.

What are your studio hours, and the best way to reach you?
Monday - Thursday from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm. Email is the best way to contact me, and I check it regularly. Phone calls are by appointment only. I carefully schedule out my time to accommodate clients, projects and creative time.
Unless it is an emergency, I respond to texts and voicemail only during studio hours.
