Sara Bercier

Studio Name: RockingShip Studio

Specialty: My paintwork creations are typically completed in a mixture of media. I painted mainly in oils for a while; but I have been dabbling in pastels and acrylics more and more as of late. So, now desired color dictates the media I use on the model. Due to time constraints, I have had limited time to complete multiple models (or regularly update my site - please conact me for most recent examples of my work). I have been painting since 2006, and I feel my skill level improves with every model.

Price ranges: Since I am not a well-known artist, I try to reflect this in my prices. I paint Stablemate scale to Traditional scale, and offer prepwork services as well. Stablemate paintwork starts at $55, and Traditionals start at $150 and go as high as $350 for super-complex color/pattern mixtures (Prices include very simple prepping and return shipping/insurance in the USA). Simple customizations can be discussed, as well. Partial or full trades for certain Breyers, bodies, resins, and the occasional china may be an option depending on my situation. :)

Books: contact me at to inquire about and schedule a commission.
