About

Drawing and Painting Colorful things to make the world more beautiful one piece of art at a time.

Stephanie is a California girl who has been living and designing on the Gold Coast for 10 years.
Graphic designer by day, art deviant by night, Stephanie loves to draw anything but finds that her interest lies mostly in the female form and portraiture. She is constantly drawing, painting, designing tattoos and working digitally. Her love of bright bold colours and tattoos shows up time and again in her unique style and artwork. Paint and pencil are her medium of choice, but she has recently dabbled in water colour and loves it.
Quite a few of her newer pieces embody the style of the underground Pop Surrealism and Newbrow and Lowbrow art movements. Of course these ladies are all sporting tattoos!
Lately a lot her work has been on A4 or A3 sized paper but she prefers to work big. Large sized canvases are her favorite and is in the process of working a few pieces now, in acrylic.
If you have a skateboard laying around, she would probably paint that too!

Steph has studied fine art and graphic design throughout high school, college and university. She has an Associated Degree in Art and graduated from San Diego State University with a Bachelors Degree in Graphic Design.
Currently Steph is the director of a graphic and website design company, Jungle Design Studios. The rest of her free time is spent drawing, painting and doodling.

Returns and exchanges
In the case of print order arriving damaged, please document the damage and get in contact ASAP. I will arrange to send you a replacement order provided that you cover the original shipping and handling cost.

In the case of original artwork arriving damaged, please contact me immediately so that we can recover the cost with the insurance, as all original painting orders ship with insurance.

While this is very rare, in the case of an order never arriving, I cannot consider a shipment being lost until 12 weeks have passed the original shipment date. Once past this time, we can discuss how to replace your order. All orders do not automatically include tracking, but it can be added if requested at an additional cost.

Please verify that your shipping address is correct. I cannot offer refunds for packages lost because they were sent to an incorrect address provided by the buyer. If the package is returned, I can re-ship at the buyer's expense.

If the package is returned safely, I can only refund the cost of the item(s), not the shipping charges. If the package is returned damaged in transit after customs duties are declined or a returned package is not received, I cannot offer any refund.

Payment is required prior to artwork being packed and shipped.
Once a piece of art is shipped, cancellations will not be accepted.

COMMISSIONS.......
Yes I do commissions! Please don't hesitate to get in touch with your idea and we'll get things rolling. I am usually able to work with your budget, but I can also provide you with an estimate based on size and complexity.

COPYRIGHT......
If you buy a painting, you own the painting/print, but not the copyright. This means that it is illegal for you to reproduce the painting/print for profit or to use the image in any way without my explicit permission.

TATTOOS.......
Of course you can use one of my pieces of artwork for a tattoo! I only ask that you consider purchasing something from my shop. While it’s super flattering that you want my artwork to be a part of your body, that doesn’t help me to pay the bills and continue doing what I love for a living. I do have a requirement for using my art as a tattoo....you have to send me photos of the finished tattoo – I’d love to see it!
