Please find below some commonly asked questions. If you require any further information, please drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Do you do commissions?
I’m currently taking a break from commission work and completing only freelance pieces. My hope is one of those paintings or prints speaks to you?
Where can I buy an original painting?
Please click on the SHOP link to view both original pieces and prints that I currently have available. If you don’t see anything there that is suitable, please feel free to contact me directly to discuss upcoming availability or pieces currently on exhibit. I’ll happily send high resolution images of artwork including dimensions, cost, and shipping requirements.
What medium do you use?
I use a variety of artist grade oil and acrylic paints and mediums including Golden, Winsor & Newton, Liquitex and Grumbacher. I also incorporate graphite, pastel, and pure copper leafing in some of my pieces.
What surfaces do you paint on?
I paint on a variety of surfaces including stretched and unstretched canvas, wood, and paper.
Do you sign all your pieces?
Yes, all original pieces of work are signed with my initials on the front, typically the lower right hand corner, with the title and date on the back of the painting. Prints are signed on the lower right hand corner.
Do you ship internationally?
Yes, I do! I have collectors throughout North America, Europe, Australia, Asia, and Africa. Due to the high costs associated with shipping, I ask collectors to contact me prior to purchasing in order to discuss shipping options and associated costs. Please note: any additional customs and/or duty charges are the responsibility of the buyer to pay upon receipt of the artwork.
How much does shipping cost?
Depending on the location, shipping costs vary. Please contact me directly for a quote of shipping costs.
How do you ship your paintings?
Very Carefully! All paintings are packaged carefully and sent in sturdy cardboard shipping boxes or artist grade tubes. Prints and works on paper are sent in no bend cardboard mailers.
I have placed my order, when should I expect my artwork?
Once you place your order, it will be processed and shipped within 3-5 business days. I use Canada Post and UPS for shipping and all orders will be assigned a tracking number. I will closely follow shipped pieces and contact you should any delays occur.
What if my piece gets lost or damaged?
If your piece gets lost or damaged, please contact me as soon as possible. I simply ask that any damaged pieces be returned to me at the buyer’s expense. I will then offer a replacement piece or a full refund. Your happiness is very important to me.
What if I change my mind about the piece I ordered?
If you are unhappy with your piece or just change your mind, I offer a full refund up to 14 days after receipt. I simply ask that the customer pays return shipping costs.
Do you donate artwork to charities or fundraisers?
Yes, I do. I reserve a couple of pieces each year for charitable donation. Please email me do discuss your fundraising needs.
Do you do collaborative work with fellow artists and/or retailers?
Yes! Simply email me at email@example.com to discuss your idea/proposal.
