About the shop:
My artistic philosophy is based on the notion that art is valuable, and should be appreciated, produced, and consumed as such. In a society where everything is mass-produced and mass-consumed, I believe it is important that art remains unique and special. For this reason, every item is created and/or painted by hand and one-of-a-kind paintings are sold rather than prints, ensuring that you are purchasing a unique and exclusive item.
Purchasing and Shipping:
All paintings ship for free. All purchasing and shipping is conducted through Etsy here. I have chosen to use only Priority Mail for shipping. I have found this to be the best option to ensure quick and safe delivery as well as to provide insurance protection for these one-of-a-kind items. I am currently only shipping within the United States. If you are local to Santa Barbara I can deliver to you in person if you prefer. Please email me at email@example.com to arrange an in-person delivery.
Commissions, Customizing, and Re-creating Sold Items:
I do accept requests for commissions as long as I feel it is something that will fit within my style of artwork. I can also recreate sold items from scratch either as similar as possible to what is in the portfolio, or with colors/sizes/alterations of your choosing. I consider requesting an item in the shop in a size/color of your choice a “custom order”, for which I apply my standard pricing. I consider a request for something unique that is not based on another item in my shop (including pet portraits) to be “commissions”, for which I apply my commission pricing. Please see the current price list here.
If you have and questions or are interested in customizing/commissioning a piece please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
