This is Bianchi, 1 of our hermit crabs. I adore this necklace which I purchased because of the attention to detail and its uniqueness. It is a celebration and I thank you for the workmanship.

About

Illness to Artwork

I’m 26 and began drawing in 2010 after two years of struggling with an unknown illness. After having to medically withdraw from college and physically unable to hold employment, I turned to drawing as a constructive outlet. I was finally diagnosed in 2014 (after 6.5 years) with chronic Lyme disease, Bartonella, two types of pneumonia, an adrenal malfunction, and Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. Now that I'm on proper treatment and am starting to feel better (very slowly!), I’m turning my artwork into a career.

I now spend my 'good' time drawing. I specialize in vibrant, detailed animal and wildlife drawings and my favorite medium is colored pencil. I was shocked at the amount of depth, detail, and richness of color that can be achieved with colored pencil and hope to help it be better recognized as a true fine art medium. I also strive to bring awareness to issues surrounding animals, both wild and domestic. I frequently donate portions of my etsy profits to varying animal organizations to try and help support this cause.

Every piece I tackle is an experiment and an opportunity to push the window of what I can accomplish.

Out of my artwork, I also makes other products, like greeting cards, calendars, jewelry, keychains, mousepads, mugs, and magnets. Check in the shop for some examples.

    Corrina Thurston began drawing in 2010 after being diagnosed with a long-term illness, of which she still suffers. She loves wildlife and works mostly in colored pencil, although the finished products look more like paintings than drawings.

Hello! Thank you so much for visiting my shop and taking an interest in my artwork! My name is Corrina and I am a colored pencil artist living and working out of Vermont, USA. Most people, after viewing my work, are astonished that it is done in colored pencil because the pieces look like paintings.

I love doing this and I love sharing it. I hope you enjoy the artwork as well and share it with your own friends and family.

Best wishes,

Corrina

Returns and exchanges
At this point, I do not take refunds. However, if something is damaged upon arrival, or is lost, please contact me and we will see what course we should follow. corrinathurston [!at] gmail.com. If you are not satisfied with your item, also feel free to contact me with your problem and I will see if there is anything I can do about it.
Payment
I request that payment be sent within a week of the purchase, and as soon as I get that, I will package up your item and ship it to you. If you want to cancel a purchase, please do so within a day, before it has shipped. Otherwise, contact me and we can discuss what course to take.

If you are in Vermont, tax is 6%.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. corrinathurston [!at] gmail.com
Shipping
I use usps shipping. Some small items, if under 8oz., will go first class, and some will go media, etc, depending on the size and shape of the product. I package everything myself and make sure that things are safe and secure and will not be damaged in transit. I usually add confirmation to the shipping to make sure I know when it has arrived. I ship within a day or two of receiving payment.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you are interested in a piece but want it in a different size or form, contact me. (corrinathurston@gmail.com) I also have a website if you would like to check it out for other sizing options, different pieces, exhibits, etc. www.CorrinaThurston.com.

If there is a size you want that is different than what is displayed on the website, contact me and we might be able to figure something out. Keep in mind that the bigger the print, the more expensive it becomes to make it, but I am more than willing to try and work something out and experiment with sizing.

If you have a picture you would like me to draw, feel free to send it to me, but more likely than not, I will not choose to draw it. If I do choose to draw it, because of my illness, I cannot be put on any sort of deadline. There are days when I can work multiple hours, and there are months where I am too sick to pick up a pencil, and it is completely unpredictable, so please be patient with me.

Thank you!
