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 also to the fore and he has segued to the new platform to offer creative solutions to graphic problems- hence the FIX in Gallagrafix. 

Artist's FEE:

I usually charge an initial consultation fee of $50. an hour.   If painting, I charge by the square foot depending upon level of detail.   For Studio work, I have a competitive day rate.  Digital work, including Digital Photography  is contracted by proposal and estimated hours of completion.  I have great references and strong portfolio.   Here is my historic RESUME page, mostly highlights from my professional career as a set painter/ scenic artist.
