About

Expressing joy and passion through the art of painting and repurposed art.

How I began my journey into a world of art:
It all started with an art class in 6th grade. I loved every aspect of that class, the color wheel, painting, pottery, oil pastels, and my wonderful, passionate teacher! That led me to take every art class I could for the next 6 years-all the way through high school. I went to college and got my Bachelor's of Science degree in Elementary Education and taught for one year, but then my husband and I decided to start our family; so I stepped aside from a paid job and made the best decision to stay at home full time. Years went by, and 4 kids later, I began to paint again. Mostly for myself, then as gifts for loved ones. The more I painted, the more people started wanting one for themselves. As the demand got larger, I was encouraged to start selling my work. Hesitant at first, I finally made the decision to open my own shop! I used to think that I was not worthy enough to showcase my art to the world because I did not have classical training, in a sense, or a degree in the arts, but, I have come to realize that didn't matter. I have been gifted with a talent and should not be afraid to show it. And thanks to Etsy and their wonderful marketplace, I can do just that! I'm learning new things all the time and growing in my passion and love for art. It is something I love to do and hope to be able to do this for the rest of my life.

If your order is a gift going directly to the recipient, I can include a personal message card from you for no extra charge. If you would like this service please let me know what you would like me to write (to fit on a small card 5.25" x 3.75") in the "Note to Seller" during checkout.

NOTE: Shipping doesn't just include the postage paid! It includes the price for a box, packaging materials and tape. I strive to keep my shipping as low as possible so you can enjoy your artwork without spending so much for shipping. But I do take very well care to package my artwork carefully so it arrives safely to your door.

***CUSTOMERS OUTSIDE UNITED STATES PLEASE READ***
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: I do ship internationally. Shipping oversees can take up to 6 weeks to arrive. I will let you know when I ship your item. If you would like a tracking number and/or insurance, please let me know as this will be an extra charge. Any taxes, shipping charges and any extra fees owed due to the location of the buyer is the responsibility of the buyer. I can not be responsible for lost or delayed packages. However, I always keep the receipt of a sent package and will do whatever I can to make sure a lost item is found or come up with a solution. Please check into such fees before making a purchase internationally. This information can be found at your local post office or on the web. Thank you!

I ship to Canada via USPS. Unfortunately, shipping rates to Canada are quite high. If you have any questions about rates to Canada, please convo me for more information. Also, please be aware that shipments to Canada can take 2 weeks or more to arrive. Canadian customers are responsible for paying any duty/GST/PST as required when the order arrives in Canada.

UK Buyers - You are responsible for paying VAT and customs duty for your purchases. This is charged by the UK government and is determined when your package arrives in the UK. Anything over £15 may be subject to VAT. You can find more information here: https://www.gov.uk/goods-sent-from-abroad/overview
Please make sure you are aware of these charges before you order.

**** Canadian and International Customers - Please be aware that you may have to pay customs fees, duty and taxes when you receive the order. These fees are not included in the item price and are the customer's responsibility. I fill out the customs form with exact value and accurate descriptions as required by law. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these costs are prior to purchasing. This link may also be helpful www.dutycalculator.com

****REGARDING ADDRESS "UNDELIVERABLE"****
Please make sure to double check that your shipping address is correct as it will be the responsibility of the purchaser to pay any extra shipping fees if a package is returned to Art By Sarah Savage due to an address error. Purchased labels are non refundable (post office policies) if returned to sender was an address error. If your packaged was returned to ABSS due to this error, ABSS will either give you a full refund for the purchase price (minus shipping fees) or you can choose to pay to have it reshipped to the corrected address or a different address. Thank you for your understanding!
Additional policies and FAQs
REGARDING CUSTOM ORDERS:
Since custom orders are made to order in a particular style and color, there can be no refunds or exchanges once production starts. This is designed to encourage the buyer to be sure of their purchase and to preserve the artist's time and supplies until a buyer is certain about the custom order. I will be MORE THAN HAPPY to have as many conversations as possible about your custom piece to make sure we get all the details correct and you are satisfied before purchasing. However, I will not begin designing or creating your custom order until it has been purchased.

If the order is a completely new idea, in which I will be brainstorming a whole new design (not just a color change to an existing design), you may choose to have a pencil sketch done before I start painting (but only after purchase). If you need this service, it includes up to 2 sets of changes (3 sketches total). Any changes needed after that will require an additional $15.00 per sketch. Custom orders will be priced based on size, material used, and labor (including the new design and technique to create the art). Photos of custom paintings are sent for approval prior to shipping to ensure that you are satisfied with the colors and composition. If, for any reason, you are unsatisfied with the final product you can have one change made at no cost. Any additional changes to the final product after that will be charged based on the extent of the reworking. I will do my best to make your custom order exactly what you want. When it is to your satisfaction, that is when I will ship it.

In the rare event that your custom order is damaged during transit, the same policies as stated above, apply.

REGARDING RUSH ORDERS:
All art created at Art By Sarah Savage is created by one person. Rush Orders are available, but you must send me a conversation for this option. A Rush Charge will apply if you cannot wait for the normal estimated time of shipment for each listing (most take 10-14 days). I will need to know what date you must have the order IN HAND at the required zip code.

These rush charges apply to in-house rush procedures and when your order will be guaranteed to leave my shop. The first time slot for rush orders is IN HAND in 5-7 business days and is $25 extra. If you need the order IN HAND within 7-10 business days it is $10 extra. In some cases, I may not be able to fulfill a rush order as my work takes time and it may simply just not be enough time for production. Thank you for taking this into consideration! Of course, any questions you have I will be glad to answer.

Art By Sarah Savage reserves the right to cancel any order for any reason. If your order is cancelled you will be notified immediately and a full refund to you will be processed.
*Art By Sarah Savage reserves the right to amend these policies as needed. Please review policies prior to purchase and convo me with comments, questions, concerns and requests. I, too, am an Etsy shopper, so I know how hard it can be to make a large purchase until I am absolutely certain it is what I want! Please don't hesitate, it is my pleasure to help you make the right choice. Thanks again, for shopping small and supporting small businesses!!
