COMPLETE CUSTOM PIECES

She takes into account, their career history, any highlights, awards and sentimental moments that the client wishes to be reflected.

From there, she begins to sketch out a very detail pencil drawing. At this point, changes can be made to template if desired. Once the sketch is approved, no other changes can be made. The final pieces takes Mary about three weeks to complete.
