Websites for Artists: web design for artists and the art community

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to get a website?
3 to 5 business days from the time I receive ALL your information (images and text).

Can I have a web design without the hosting?
Absolutely. The process stays the same: you send me your images and text, and I do the rest!

My site went live, why is Google not finding me?
Search engines crawl the web on a regular basis to look at every site and index them. As you can imagine, that's a lot of websites! It may take anywhere from 3 weeks to 3 months to get indexed. Be patient! Your site will come up eventually.

I already have a website, can you still host and manage my site?
Unfortunately no: I no longer manage sites that I didn't code.

I have more than 15 images, how much will that cost?
Additional images are $5 per image. See the Pricing guidelines under Pricing Info for more details.

I have more than 15 images, how do I pay you?
I invoice clients when the site is completely finished. You can then pay the remaining balance by check or using PayPal. I send out invoices every Monday.

I have more than 15 images, will hosting cost more?
No. The hosting and managing fee is $10 a month, even if you have more than 8 images.

I like the templates, but I need to get larger images than you have, is that possible?
Yes! The templates are a starting point for the designs, but can be altered to fit your particular needs.

I like the home page of one template and the gallery of another, can I mix and match?
Yes. If you see a page from another template that you like better, I can mix and match between templates. See the clients page under Mix and Match and Template Customization.

I like one of your templates but I would like different colors, is that possible?
Yes. Give me your details when you send your content.

The site has gone live but I don't like my color choices, can I change that?
Yes. The design process must stay fluid! You can change the background color, the font style and the font colors anytime.

I just had an update but my page is still the same, what's going on?
Click on the "Refresh" button on your browser, provided you received an e-mail confirming the changes have gone through.

What do I get with your hosting?
The hosting gives you free domain registration, a place for your website to be seen and accessed by all Internet users and 5 free monthly updates. Click on Website Hosting for all the details.

I'm trying to pay with Paypal but get a blank screen?
The browser you are using must have "cookie enabled". If that still doesn't work, send me an e-mail at

I don't want to use PayPal to pay for my site.
You can pay for the site's design by check. You also can pay hosting by check in 3 month installments, and I'll send you a reminder when your hosting is due.
