Do you need a versatile artist? Expert here.
Choosing a professional artist is such a personal thing. There is a lot of competition and only the best can survive the urban Jungle. Gallagrafix is a company started by Johnathon Gallagher in the year 2000. Trained in the theater he has an eye for excellence. Digital arts are very to the fore and he has segued to the platform to offer creative solutions to graphic problems- hence the FIX in Gallagrafix.
I charge a consultation fee of $50. an hour. If painting, I charge by the square foot depending upon level of detail. Digital work is contracted by proposal and estimated hours of completion. I have great references and strong portfolio. Here is my RESUME page.
As a freelance artist I have completed hundreds of arts-related projects. Here are a few of my career highlights in the past as a Professional Scenic Artist & Set Painter in Hollywood. Enjoy!
