Original paintings and works are indicated as such, and the materials and canvas sizes are indicated on a per-painting basis. I reserve the right to reproduce or post any sold art work.
Commissions – I am happy to discuss commission work and will do everything I can to accommodate custom requests. Please contact me directly and we can discuss pricing and timing.
Art Prints are digital reproductions (Giclee Fine Art Prints) of original paintings on paper or canvas. That means that a professional printer is doing the printing. With appropriate inks that are very color specific and long lasting, resulting in a lovely quality image.
Sizes – Prints are available in standard framing sizes of 8”x10”, 11”x14” and 13”x19”. All prints are Signed and numbered and some are in limited runs. They are rolled into a tube to ship. Larger sizes can be requested and pricing will be discussed and agreed to prior to producing and shipping the works.
& Canvas Types
Watercolor Paper – is always of the highest quality.
Photo Rag – is a very beautiful, velvety, thick paper. The paper is specially formulated for digital inks & dyes and feels a lot like watercolor paper, with a softer tooth.
Canvas – are digital reproductions of paintings printed directly onto canvas. This canvas is coated to accept digital inks & dyes, but aside from that it looks and feels like regular painting canvas. Canvas prints must be stretched on your end. You can stretch yourself or take it to an art or framing shop to have it mounted
Framing – Prints are printed on standard framing sizes, so it is possible to place prints in pre-built frames that match the size of the print.
If you want your prints in a larger frame with a mat, I suggest you buy a ready made frame that is larger than your print. Take your print and your frame to a framer (like Binders, Micheals, Sam Flax, Dick Blick, etc.) and have them cut a custom sized matt for you. It will fit your print perfectly, and so your piece will look custom framed, but its so very much cheaper than custom framing.
Pottery Barn (free shipping usually), Ikea, West Elm, and CB2 all have nice frames at a good price. I don’t suggest you buy a frame and mat before your receive your print. You need to see the print to choose the matt color, and make sure that it is sized just right.
Digital Files – I do not sell or distribute digital files of my works.
If you wish to use something for an anniversary, birthday, or wedding invitation cards or something similar including licensing for products please email me or call and we can discuss your needs and how to best produce what you need.
The Fine Print
Sales are final. If for any reason you are not satisfied with your purchase, you have 7 days from the date of purchase to contact me to arrange an exchange of equal or greater value. Photos of the work are as accurate as possible, but please note that colors may differ slightly from monitor to monitor. I am more than happy to send additional photos of the work or a video to help decide if it is the right piece for you. If you have any questions at all, don’t hesitate to reach out, as your happiness is most important. We are happy to help in anyway before you make your final decision.
Note about colors: Colors may be slightly different than what you see on the computer screen, but we work very hard to make sure that the prints are very close to what you see on screen.
If returning something because of damage, we will replace it, or you can have a credit towards something else. Sending art back is tricky, it must be photographed and packed really well. Ultimately it is the responsibility of the buyer to ship back.
Shipping large paintings: Large paintings are sent UPS , unless you prefer them crated. We use a company called Craters and Freighters. They will create a custom crate and delivery will be 7-10 days after they pick up your painting from my studio. When you check out you are paying an estimated shipping charge, we will email you and get your full mailing address to continue the shipping process. You will be invoiced or refunded for the shipping charges depending on the exact quote to ship to your door.
Shipping small paintings: Anything under 30 inches usually ships USPS (though there may be exceptions on a case by case basis, depending on where your location and the exact proportions of the work.) Larger pieces are shipped Fed Ex or UPS. Small paintings and prints are shipped priority or 1st class mail. Your shipping fee covers the cost of postage, shipping materials & labor. I try to give an exact price from post office. Cost is around $50-$300, including packing and insurance, depending on size. Smalls are usually around $10-$15..
We ship orders once a week:
Prints are mailed within three days. If the prints are damaged in the shipping process, please contact us immediately and we will gladly replace your print.
