On Etsy since 2010

I paint animals because animals make me happy

I started this shop 10 years ago just to see what would happen. At that time I was unhappily working as a freelance pattern drafter because I still didn't think it was possible to make a living as an artist (really, who does!?) Luckily the shop has grown and so has my excitement about it all.

Unlike many artists who seem to have been born with a paint brush in their hand, the first time I seriously picked up a brush was in Fashion School where I learned how to illustrate. It was illustration, not fashion, that stole my heart.

I find inspiration in all types of animals but the ones who inspire me the most are the ones who keep me company all day, my 3 very spoiled cats.

I will exchange or refund any purchase, but you are responsible for return shipping. If an item is damaged during shipping I will refund all costs or send you another decal free of charge. Just convo me if you have any issues with shipping.
I use Etsy's direct checkout for processing payments so that I can accept a wide range of payment methods. If you have any issues with payment processing you must contact Etsy directly.

I will cancel any order as long as I am contacted before the order ships. If the order has already shipped you can always return the package for a full refund (minus return shipping costs).

I charge sales tax to my fellow Canadians. Taxes are automatically calculated at checkout
I ship through Canada Post using regular letter/parcel post so that you get the lowest possible shipping rate. PLEASE NOTE: Canada Post does NOT include a tracking number with letter post or small packet air. If you would like express post or a tracking number please convo me for rates.

All sizes of decals are shipped in a sturdy box. OPEN BOX CAREFULLY

All items are packaged with care. I can ship to any country that Canada Post will deliver to.

Shipping time from Canada to the US is 6-10+ business days. Overseas shipping will take 2-3+ weeks. Please convo me if you have concerns about your delivery.

I always ship items out as soon as possible, usually 48 hrs from purchase date. PLEASE NOTE: Depending on my order back log there may be a longer then usual turn around time. I will advise you of any delay if this should happen.
