Michelle knows which artist is good for A raindrop landing on my cheek is a kiss from my pap shirt what work. She is very familiar with their style. For each commission she does, she gives the same photograph of the client’s pet to three different signboard artists so that they can bring their own creativity and uniqueness to the artwork. There are different interpretations of the same photos because the artists use dissimilar techniques, hence the same photograph turns out different as paintings. Some make it with a smoother cartoonish texture while others make it more realistic, adding depth and realism to the features. Michelle strongly believes that these hand paintings should not only be appreciated but they must be financially valued too. She gives them partial payment in advance and later pays the full sum when the work is done. She gives them a raise after each trip and pays the artists five to six times what she paid earlier. Once the painting is done, she writes the date of completion on the back of the sign boards and wraps them in a Nepali newspaper. She has had orders from Australia, New Zealand, England, France, the United States, Canada, Mexico, Switzerland and Lebanon.
