Let me transform your photo
into something truly unique
Scroll down to see how it works
It takes a bit of time and goes through a process that involves several different software programs. The fabric is prepped and taken to the laser cutter for precision cuts. Once I have the pieces cut, they're layered and tweaked, changed, rearranged, recut (maybe). There's a lot of stepping away for a day or two so I can come back with fresh eyes. Once I'm happy with the layout, it's fused and then quilted. You'll be updated regularly on the progress. It can take between four to eight weeks, depending on the complexity and size.
Your photo should be high-resolution and sharp. If a photo is too small or has low resolution, it will be difficult to get a crisp pattern from it. You can test it by viewing it on your computer and zooming in on the face. It should be crisp and clear. Pixelated and blurry images won't work.
And please be aware that I can't create artwork based on a copyrighted photo, licensed design or another artist's work unless the copyright holder provides written permission.
Total cost is based on size, materials and labor.
I charge $0.85 per square inch. This factors in the dimensions of the work, the price of the materials to be used, and labor. Your quilted portrait comes finished with a pocket on the back for hanging, although you might consider having it framed behind glass. People will be very interesting in touching it!
It will not be washable, although you can spot clean it with a very mild cleaner and damp cloth. Please be aware that I can't create artwork based on a copyrighted photo, licensed design or another artist's work unless the copyright holder provides written permission.
I'm offering free shipping and can deliver to the St. George, Utah area.
When you're ready, go to the Shop page and email a copy of your photo, provided it's not copyrighted. I'll evaluate it and we will discuss details and the finished price. I'll then send you an invoice for the non-refundable $25 deposit. As soon as that is completed, I'll start your project and give you a projected finish date.
