The Attic Studio

The Attic Studio is a small art studio in the attic of a ramshackle old farm house. Packed from floor to ceiling with a wide variety of art supplies (many of which I've gleaned from the woods, fields, and streams of rural West Virginia), The Attic Studio overlooks a beautiful landscape that inspires me in the creation of any number of fanciful and arts and crafts.

    I am a 37 year old native of West Virginia, USA. I work in a variety of media, watercolor being a particular favorite. Though my art may seem bizarre and fantastical, it is heavily inspired by the lovely natural surroundings of my rural home.

SHIPPING COSTS: Shipping charges for most items are determined by 'calculated shipping' -- wherein the shipping cost is based on the weight & size of the item (and its packaging) plus the buyer's location. Depending on the item, you may see shipping options that include First Class, Parcel Select, Priority, or Priority Express Mail.
I highly recommend the Priority Mail options. Although these services are more expensive, they are faster, safer, and come with shipping insurance (First Class and Parcel Select packages are NOT insured).

Generally, the farther you are from my studio in West Virginia, the more it will cost to ship -- particularly for items weighing over a pound or requiring oversized packaging. ***Some items may be shipped more cheaply via Flat Rate Priority Mail, and that option usually DOES NOT show up under the shipping, if you'd like to know if an item is eligible for Flat Rate shipping, send me a message and I'll get back to you asap!***

A small handling fee is also included in the shipping cost. This varies from item to item, depending on what type of packaging is required.

PACKAGE TRACKING: All items are shipped with package tracking -- even small 'paper' items like cards & bookmarks. This way, EVERY item comes with proof of shipment and delivery!

MEDIA MAIL: Books and magazines are shipped via Media Mail, which is typically a bit slower than First Class or Priority, but these items are eligible for shipping upgrades at the buyer's request.

TIMING: If you need an item by a certain date, please contact me before making your purchase to discuss shipping options & ensure your order arrives on time.

PACKAGING: I recycle and re-use packing materials whenever possible -- this sometimes includes the use of food boxes as packaging, so if you have a serious food allergy please let me know at checkout so I won't inadvertently use an inappropriate box to package your item.
Refunds and Exchanges
If something goes wrong, please contact me as soon as possible so I can help.

I do not refund custom 'made to order' purchases. Depending on circumstances, I may accept returns on other items. As always, the best thing customers can do is contact me, and always ask any & all questions prior to purchasing.

Although I bear no responsibility for items lost, delayed, or damaged during shipment, I'll do my utmost to help resolve the issue -- just be sure to send me a message describing the problem.
Items shipped via the Priority Mail services automatically receive shipping insurance via the US Postal Service -- if you need to file an insurance claim, let me know and I will assist you with any verification needed by the Postal Service.
Some of the pricier items will also be eligible for third-party insurance.

I'm sorry to have to add this, but I no longer accept returns due to 'buyer error' (for example, if the buyer fails to read the measurements, condition, or other details which have been clearly stated in the item listing). However, this is easily remedied -- just ask any & all questions prior to making your purchase. I'm always happy to assist. :)
