Art and design addict. Artist, mother, & wife. Occasional superhero.

Creating things for others has always made me happy. I have enjoyed drawing and painting for as long as I can remember, and have always dreamed of making art my full-time career. When I was a kid, I used to make my pocket money by painting small flower pots for my grandmother and her friends in the summer, and I later expanded my "business" to include murals on potting sheds as well as name plaques and signs for gardens. That annual summer venture ignited an entrepreneurial spark in me.

I have an education in marketing, and I have worked in many fields, from customer service to textile design, but my passion has always been my art - I am always called back to my pencils and brushes.

I mostly work with acrylics, graphite, and canvas, but I love to try new things and I am constantly looking to expand my creative options. You will notice that the designs are varied and changing all the time as I experiment with different styles... I am still finding my voice when it comes to my art.

Hopefully you will find all the info you need below - If you don't see an answer to your question here, please don't hesitate to contact me through the Etsy conversation feature, or by regular email at info(at)cisforchristine(dot)com

All items are originals, hand-made by me, or (if specified) are prints of my original hand-painted works. All items are created in my smoke-free home studio.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
Please pay for your item within three days of purchase.

I currently can accept Paypal only.

If for some reason you are anti-paypal, or you need longer than three days, please send me a message and we can work it out! :)

Please note that transactions that are not paid within the 3 day time frame will be cancelled and re-listed, unless other arrangements have been agreed upon.
I usually ship with Canada Post. I use air mail, which includes tracking, whnever possible.

If you require expedited shipping, such as FedEx or CanPar, please convo me and I can get a quote for you. Please do this right away after purchasing, before payment, so that I can adjust the invoice accordingly.

Please note that smaller letter sized items will not have a tracking number (ACEO's, for example).

I currently have shipping listed for Canada and U.S., but I can ship anywhere in the world. Please message me if you are interested in purchasing a piece and need shipping for overseas - I will get you a quote and add your location to the listing.

Please note that I am Canadian, and all items are shipping from Canada, so there may be customs or brokerage fees for shipping across borders. These fees are not covered by the S&H fees on your purchase.

International customers: please be aware that all customs fees are the buyers responsibility. I always include a commercial invoice with international shipments, with correct pricing of items.

I do my best to get things shipped within 3 days of completed transaction, however I try to ship everything on the next business day after payment is received. Custom items will take longer, as I have to complete them first.

All items are packaged with care in order to arrive to you in the best possible condition. I use tissue paper, plastic sleeves, padded envelopes, cardboard shippers, and tubes, depending on the item. Recycled materials are used when possible.
Refunds and Exchanges
I will refund or redo if a piece arrives to you damaged. Please contact me as soon as possible if your piece has arrived damaged. This does not happen frequently, so I will handle it on a case by case basis.
