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 listed in the shop 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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. Additional shipping charges may apply to requests for larger sizes.
If you have and questions or are interested in customizing/commissioning a piece please email email@example.com.
