dear hearts,

As a painter, my life is very fluid. Things come and go, take form, leave current forms, what I am about to say is....If you see something you like and would like to have it. let me know. we can work out a payment schedule of as little as a dollar a week...that will hold your item in place for you (it won't be going off to a gallery, or stored in the loft....not to be heard from again until i am rummaging around up there).

Payments are nonrefundable. I need to receive something at least once per month. When paid in full, i will ship it to you with free shipping!

If you are one of my buyers on a payment plan, please be reminded i must receive some sort of agreed upon payment once per month or i will think you changed your mind, forgot about it or just wanted to move on quietly leaving me with the $ you already put down! (i will do one quiet email and etsy mail as reminder per month only!)

Returns & exchanges

I do not accept exchanges on sold items.

Shipping policies

I ship priority mail within 2 days of receiving my orders. If you require an overnight, that can be arranged through email.


Additional policies

This is a retail shop and my prices reflect that. I do have wholesale accounts with various galleries and craft stores, please contact me for more information on that.
