Please note that due to the large number of emails I receive each day, I can no longer guarantee a personal response*. I do read all emails and if I have time, I reply when I can. I do appreciate getting messages, even if I can't respond, so don't feel shy!

Some people don't realize that I'm just a single person running this website and offering free advice - on top of making art, moderating The Art Colony, running my art business, maintaining a household and a million other things. I'm not a corporation with employees answering emails or doing behind-the-scenes work. Even so, I enjoy helping people in whatever capacity I can, so I take time to answer emails when my schedule allows. I appreciate your understanding.
