Taylor Lee Paints :: Floral with puppy Friday

do you ship outside the usa?

I do! Please select INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING if you live outside of the USA for a flat rate of $50 USD on large paintings (it’s $12 USD for prints).

do you create prints of your work?

I currently have a few floral prints available here. If you would like to see more of my prints from my pre-floral period, selected work is available through Artist Lane!

do you make custom paintings?

I do! I love creating custom pieces that are just as special as you are. Start by sending me a message here with your ideal size and budget, and we can go from there! My current turnaround time is 4-6 weeks.

why do you talk about mental illness?

I am really humbled by the large following I've obtained over a relatively short amount of time. I think it's so important that people like me use our platforms to change the current narrative of mental illness. I built my business while dealing with depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder, and I want others to know that they don't have to be limited by their illnesses. In fact, most of the mania I experience is actually rocket fuel for my success! 

How did you get started doing this full-time?

A lot of hard work and a leap of faith. I hired a business coach and several other professionals to get me started, but in the end it all comes down to how hard you are willing to work. This path isn't easy, but there are lots of resources out there that help! I highly recommend joining The Follower to Fan Society, which is a group that my friends Tyler J. McCall and Eric Campbell put together. I’m a proud member :)

 

are you available for licensing?

I'd absolutely love to talk with you about your ideal project.

what can i expect when i receive my package?

I ship my paintings still attached to their wooden stretcher bars. I do not ship paintings rolled up. When you receive your painting it will be in a large box, insulated and protected with packing material. Inside there is always a hand-written thank you note, a few stickers, and a few business cards.

are your paintings ready to hang?

Yes! You just need a hammer, nails, and maybe a leveler. I do not currently wire my paintings, but you can hang it directly on the nails - this is what I do in my own studio. To be honest, I hate the wire. But if you’d like your piece wired you can have that done at your local framer’s easily and inexpensively.

how can i get more followers on instagram?

I am not an expert in this! I have taken the advice of several folks who's entire business is providing answers to this question. Again, I highly recommend joining The Follower to Fan Society. I’m a member, and it has helped me so much!

who made your website?

I did! I change my mind a lot, so working with someone else on it is tough. I learned how to do everything myself so that I could update as often as I like (which is pretty often). It is a Squarespace.

Acrylic or oils?

ACRYLIC!!! I have never (and don't plan on starting) used oils.
