Frequently Asked Questions


I FOUND ANOTHER companY creating art from photographs, HOW ARE YOU DIFFERENT?

 

There are a few companies that offer to create artwork based on your photograph, but this is just a copy of your photograph that has been turned into a computerized art version using software. No thought or creativity is offered outside of your original image.

This process of copying a photograph to turn it into a copied art version, should not be confused with the legitimate process of art creation.

Karlana often uses photography as a “model” for her art subjects. Using this technique allows her to create custom and original, hand crafted artwork on whichever medium is chosen for that specific art piece, utilizing such mediums as photography, digital graphic art or hand painted art with acrylic. Karlana Pedersen's artwork are original designs. Photographic images that are used as "models" for her artwork are subject to her design. Therefore, Karlana’s final work is an original product.


Can I have a photo that I already own, turned into artwork? 

 

Absolutely! You can even upload your photo to us via email or Dropbox. Once you have agreed to your art style, colors, price and timeline, the work can begin. Karlana can even apply her technique to any existing photograph. A customer can send us their favorite photograph from a cell phone, or social media account and as long as you own the rights to your photo, we can use that photograph to create beautiful, original artwork, made just for you! Contact us for more information and details involved, buy scheduling a quick 20 minute phone consultation. We will be happy to answer all of your questions!

How long does it take to get a framed print or artwork canvas, from start to finish?

 

Depends mostly upon the schedule and needs of the client involved. The first step is booking your photo or art session (or submitting your personal image to us digitally) Once you have completed your photo session, you will then need to pay your order deposit and book your order session date, scheduled approximately fifteen (15) business days after your session has been completed. Proofs will then be released to you, and you will have 5 business days to review your proofs and approve them for editing. Once proofs are returned and received, editing time is approximately 10 business days to complete. You will attend your order session and your prints, frames, products, etc will be processed within 48 hours of your order session. Orders usually take 5-10 business days to receive your finished product, including shipping time. So from Day one to finish, the estimated time is approximately 30 days to complete. This is a time estimate only, and is subject to volume and work load adjustments.
