Frequently asked questions

Are your Watercolours/Mono-Prints/Encaustic artworks suitable for framing?

Absolutely! Because of the creative process, watercolour paintings and mono-prints may have the odd indent or even paint on the back or sides. Once matted and/or framed, this does not interfere with the beauty of the piece.
My encaustic art pieces are lovely on their own, hung on a wall, or placed in a bookshelf, table top or picture ledge. They are also beautiful placed in a "floating" frame. However, encaustic art should not be placed behind glass; and as with all fine art, should not be displayed or kept in direct sunlight, or in extreme temperatures. Please do not place over a fireplace.

Are mats/frames provided with the artwork?

I try to sell my artwork as affordable as possible. I know how expensive shipping is for the customer. Therefore I keep my prices as low as I can; and try to keep the shipping weight down. Matting/framing is certainly a personal preference, to suit one's decor or style. The listing pictures often show mats and/or frames, to give the you an idea of what the piece would look like.

Art work that is matted or framed, clearly states this in the description; and in the "materials" used section.

If you have any questions regarding sizing, don't hesitate to ask. I'm here to help :)

Are the listing photos true to life?

I try my best to provide accurate listing photos. Please keep in mind, colours may vary from computer monitor/mobile device. I would be happy to answer any questions regarding the piece you are interested in. I answer my inquiries as promptly as possible.

What shipping service do you use?

All orders are shipped through Canada Post. I am currently only shipping to the USA & Canada. Please contact me for a quote if you are located outside these areas.
It is difficult to calculate shipping/handling costs that cover every Province or State. Therefore, in the event of an overcharge of more than $2.00, a refund will gladly be issued.

Smaller pieces are sent regular "letter mail" (the most economical way), without tracking. If you require tracking, or expedited shipping, please contact me prior to ordering; and I will get you a quote for this method. Please include your zip code/postal code with your inquiry. Thank you :)

Local delivery or pick up can be arranged. Please contact me prior to ordering.
