Announcement   I offer original Halloween, dark gothic, Victorian fantasy, colorful nature and psychedelic acrylic paintings here at Etsy, as well as photo prints.

My Web site, http://www.artbysarada.com, includes a gallery of some art I've done in the past, but I also have sold on ebay for many years. I also have a blog at http://artbysarada.blogspot.com.

Here at Etsy I hope to offer original art and other creations that all keep with my gothic/hippie/witchy/Victorian/Halloween aesthetic!

I am a proud member of Etsy Dark Team, the Halloween Artists Bazaar (HAB), Spooky Cute team, Team BPAL, the VAST (Visual Artist) Street Team, EtsyNJ (though I am no longer in NJ) and Halloween Corner, and most recently the Wear if you Dare and Pretty Awful teams.

About

A dream of darkness and color

I began painting colorful fantasy and surreal images in 1986 and gradually my love of gothic literature and art, horror and Halloween blended with my love of color and hallucinatory images. In 1999 I began selling online, through online auctions and a personal website and since then I've illustrated several children's books, done some album art and found a wonderful art community on Etsy.

A New Jersey native, I am currently in Houston, Texas, where I continue to seek inspiration in nature, literature and dreams.

Victorian ghost stories, 19th century supernatural and decadent literature, as well as horror films of the 1960s and 1970s provide a lot of inspiration along with my deep love of nature and scientific mystery.

When I'm not painting or reading, I also have been a member of PA-based folk band Stone Breath since 1999, and do experimental and folk music on my own as well as knitting, crocheting and sewing/dressmaking.

Shop policies

I'm easygoing, very communicative, and I will do whatever I can to make your shopping experience with me a happy one! If you like my art enough to want to buy it, then I want to make that process as easy and pleasurable for you as possible!

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Money Order
  • Check
Payment
I prefer Paypal, US funds only, within one week of purchase. I can accept US checks and money orders if you cannot use Paypal but they must be received within one week of purchase. If there are extraordinary circumstances please let me know, I will accommodate your needs if they are reasonable.
Shipping
Prices for small items are given in first class USPS mail, but if you prefer Priority Mail let me know and I will calculate the cost. Prices for larger items (paintings 9 x 12 or larger) are generally for Priority Mail due to the weight of the package. (Items over 12 oz in weight must go by Priority Mail)

Due to the extraordinary increase in cost for shipping internationally from the US I do not currently offer international shipping without prior arrangement. I am asking prospective buyers to please contact me in advance with your location and I can get a shipping rate for you. Costs change frequently and vary widely based on small size and weight differences so I cannot prepare these estimates in advance but am happy to do so on a case by case basis. However, since ALL international packages have to be mailed in-person during USPS business hours, and I work during the week, it may take 1 week or longer for me to be able to schedule a time to ship an item internationally, so rush service is not available.

I often use USPS priority mail boxes and envelopes for items being shipped priority mail but sometimes I recycle and re-use other shipping materials when they are available. For first class mail I ship using bubble mailers or a combination of sturdy envelopes and cardboard backing, depending on the item. I address things by hand and ship from the post office self-service kiosk.

Delivery confirmation is always included.

I fill out customs forms with accurate information, it is illegal to lie on customs forms so please don't ask me to! :)
Refunds and Exchanges
Please read item description carefully, if you are not satisfied please let me know and I will accept a return within 14 days if there is something wrong with the item (you pay return postage).
Additional policies and FAQs
Requests for custom art are welcome and some custom clothing requests can be entertained if it's within my realm of experience!
