Can I commission you to create a mural?Jamie Locke2019-05-18T12:03:20-04:00
Aside from carving mandalas, creating murals is on the top of my list of favorite things to do! I would love to work with you to create a one of a kind mural in your home, studio, work place or public space. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the possibilities!
Do you ship worldwide?Jamie Locke2019-05-17T21:35:35-04:00
If you are commissioning a custom piece, I ask that a 50% non-refundable deposit be made at the time of order to secure your place in queue. Once work is completed, the final payment is due before delivery or pickup.
If you are purchasing completed artwork, full payment will be due upon checkout.
If you would like to place a hold on completed artwork, I request a non-refundable down payment of 50% with final payment due within 45 days.
What forms of payment to you accept?Jamie Locke2020-02-03T21:38:25-05:00
This has been the most asked question in the 7 years I’ve been carving! Depending on size, it could take anywhere from six hours up to 7 or more days. Typically a 12″ x 12″ carving can take 6-8 hours whereas a 4′ x 4′ mandala can take at least 7 days working 8 hours each day.
Do you layout your designs beforehand, or do you work organically?Jamie Locke2019-05-13T18:36:23-04:00
With the exception of murals or public art projects, I don’t lay out my designs before I start carving. I simply start with a circle and move outward creating lines and shapes that are informed by what I’m feeling in the moment.
When did you start carving mandalas full time?Jamie Locke2019-05-13T18:35:55-04:00
Just a little over 7 years ago, I had just moved into a beautiful four square with lots of ample wall space. As I was staring at one of the walls in the living room, imagining what could be hung there, a vision of a large carved mandala came to mind. Up until that time, I had been carving small mandala designs on multi-media bird paintings that I had been creating and thought a large carved mandala would be just the thing to set the tone for this space. I just happen to have a piece of 4′ x 4′ maple ply down in my basement and I immediately set out to carve my largest mandala yet! Just eight hours later, I emerged with my creation, hung it on the wall and as one does, shared it on my facebook page. The very next day, I had my first carved mandala commission (another 4′ x 4′) and the orders have been pouring in ever since! What started out as a home project, turned into a full-time art career and I feel extraordinarily grateful!
Do you license your artwork?Jamie Locke2019-05-17T16:02:20-04:00
I would love and be grateful to have my artwork featured on your social media channel, blog or website and appreciate your intesrest in wanting to share my work. Please post my images with a link back to jamielockeart.com or the appropriate social media channel.
I am happy to share the feature on my social media channels if you would like to send the link my way. Thank you!
Where can I connect with you online?Jamie Locke2019-05-17T21:45:32-04:00
As much as I would like to connect with you on all channels, I simply don’t have the time or brain space to keep up with it all! My number one go to these days is Instagram as I post there most often. If you are a fan of watching the creative process unfold, I post my daily works in progress to the “stories” feature there, plus some other behind the scenes and daily life bits. My pups make a frequent appearance for which I will not apologize. 🙂
Will you donate artwork to my fundraising cause/event?Jamie Locke2019-05-17T22:07:40-04:00
I aim to align myself with organizations I feel are making a positive impact and am always happy to donate artwork to help further the cause. I wish that I could donate to every organization that asks, but it’s just not possible. I have limited my donations to a certain number each year, I encourage you to reach out at the beginning of the year with any donation requests as I typically fill all spots early on.
Do you offer private group glass etching classes?Jamie Locke2020-02-21T02:28:48-05:00
Private group classes are great for corporate team building, bridal and birthday parties, family reunions, girls/guys night out or “just because” gatherings. I can come to your venue of choice, or host your group of up to 16 participants in my studio located in Irvington, just 4 miles east of Indianapolis. Please contact me at email@example.com for more information!
