My love of dogs comes to life through my art!

As a young girl, rather than play with dolls and wear dresses, I would run around the house on all fours barking and panting like a puppy. Yes, my love of dogs ran that deep. It still does, although I'm no longer able to run around on all fours!

When I decided to turn my art into a life-long career I turned to that ingrained passion for all things canine. My designs reflect the fun, humorous, lovable nature of dogs.

I specialize in watercolor, acrylic paintings, polymer clay sculptures, and hand painted treasures. I've recently turned some of my work into fabric and t shirt designs.

Most of my prints and reproductions are hand crafted by me in my studio. Where equipment limitations require me to out source my work I use reputable, respectable manufacturers based in the USA.

Thank you for your interest in my art, I hope you enjoy your tour of my Etsy gallery,
Amy Bolin

Welcome to my Etsy shop. I hope you enjoy your visit!
My art is created with one thing in mind: to make you smile, if you laugh all the better!

I try to stay with my lighthearted, whimsical style, but once in a while I will break free and do something a little more realistic.

My art is available on a large variety of items. I try to keep my offerings relevant and useful. If you see an image you just love, but it's not available on the item you want, contact me I'll be glad to list one for you if possible.

PLEASE read the full item description prior to ordering - I want you to know what you are purchasing and there is vital information offered there. I also strongly urge you to read my shop policies and FAQ which I have developed over the last 20 years of online selling. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns, or comments. I do my very best to answer all of my messages within 24 hours. November and December may delay my response time a bit - if you get an automated response, know that I will get to you as soon as possible.

Thank you so much, I appreciate your interest in my art!
Amy

HANDLING/PROCESSING TIMES
My handling & processing times do not include transit time - keep this in mind when ordering. An additional 5-7 days (for orders delivered within the USA - 2-3 weeks for International orders) should be allowed for transit once your order has been processed and shipped.

If a refund is requested for an order that is arriving late, the package should be unopened, marked REFUSED, and placed back in your mail receptacle for pick up the next day. This will expedite your refund as I do not process a refund until the item has been returned to me. (See REFUNDS above)

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I no longer paint portraits or personal pets. Those projects can be very stressful and time-consuming and I have decided not to do them anymore.

All of my prints are of paintings I have done over the years and print as shown. It is not possible to add extra dogs to the design or change the breed or coloration of the dogs in the design.

However, most of my items can be personalized by adding text (names, dates, etc.) to make them more personal.

Want a different breed than the one shown? I might have one available - my gallery of artwork is pretty big and not all of it is listed on Etsy. Ask and if available I will list it for you!

Do you offer digital versions of your designs?

No, I do not sell, lend, or license digital versions of my art. I only sell my art in physical form at this time.

I love your designs but need one printed on an item you do not sell.

Let me know what you are looking for! I do offer many items that are not in my Etsy shop through my website, I would be happy to list one here for you. If I do not currently have the item available, I will research my options and if it is available and my equipment will produce it I will get it!

How long will it take for my item to ship?

I average 3-5 days processing time from order placement to shipment. I pad my expected shipping date (the processing time published on my listings) to cover unexpected delays. For example, equipment failures, stocking issues, family emergencies - anything that can and will go wrong :)
Your order will 99% of the time ship WAAAAY before it is advertised to - but you may be that 1% that takes the full processing time advertised so always plan on that.

If you are trying to get a gift for a special occasion I am open to 'rush' requests but please contact me prior to ordering so that we can work out the details. If I can get it to you in time I absolutely will. But, keep in mind that I am not responsible for carrier delays!

Do you ship Internationally?

Yes, I currently ship Internationally. As restrictions continue to change please note that I may discontinue International shipping at my discretion. So far, things are going smoothly and I love sending packages worldwide!

Will I get a preview of my personalization prior to production?

Not unless you request one.

Most of my designs have very limited areas to add personalization without covering details. Therefore, I put the text where it fits best!

If you would like to have a mock-up created I will happily do that for you - IF you request one.

Once you request a mock-up I will not fill your order until you approve the design. This may delay your shipment, so if you request one keep an eye on your inbox, I will share the mock-up through Etsy messages.
