unsure about an artwork?
Do you have a spot in mind for a painting, but are not 100% sure how it will look in your space? If you take a photo of your wall and email it to me with the name of the painting you want, I’ll digitally insert the painting in your space and email it back to you. This way you can get an idea of what it will look like before you buy the painting. Voila! (For best results, take a photo facing the wall (not from an angle) and be sure the photo is well-lit – natural light works!) Email me the photo at [email protected]
shipping and insurance
Artwork will be carefully packaged and shipped within the week payment is received. Pieces larger than 40×40 inches will require additional time to build a crate. Shipping for canvas and panel pieces up to 40×40 inches is free of charge within the United States. When you purchase a painting, it will be shipped via USPS in the United States or via Fedex for international orders. Multi-panel paintings requiring shipping crates will be shipped by private carrier (additional charges apply). When you receive a painting, I ask that you please inspect it before signing for the delivery.
drawings & works on paper
Drawings and other small works on paper are shipped flat in a cardboard envelope and shipped USPS priority within the US and Fedex for international orders.
For paintings comprised of multiple canvases or panels (diptychs and triptychs), a wooden crate will be custom built to protect the painting in transit. When ordering these larger works, please email me with the piece you would like and your address. I will calculate shipping costs and create a custom shipping option for you to choose when you make your purchase. As soon as the shipping option is ready, I’ll let you know via email so you can place your order. Thanks for your patience!
When you receive your artwork, please inspect it before signing for delivery, to be sure it hasn’t incurred any damage in shipping. In the unforeseen circumstance that it arrives damaged, please contact me as soon as possible so that I can assess the damage.
If you are not satisfied with an artwork, you will have 5 days to return it. Please contact me first so I know to expect the return. You pay for return shipping with insurance, and after I receive it and inspect its condition, you’ll receive a full refund of the purchase price.
quality & craftsmanship
I have devoted my life to studying materials and techniques to make work that will stand the test of time. While on a teaching scholarship, I received a Master of Fine Arts in Painting. I have been creating art professionally for over 20 years, and have taught college-level art and art history classes. When you purchase one of my works, you can rest assured that it is made with the finest materials and time-proven techniques.
Certificate of Authenticity
Each piece of original art on canvas or panel will be shipped with a Certificate of Authenticity. Every piece is signed on the front with additional information about the piece hand-written on the back: artist name, title of the work, year, medium, and dimensions.
