There couldn't have been a 2016 without the friendship of the cat calendar . I like it so so much ! I walked through 2015 with the cats and 2016 is even 'more better'. The artistry, the presentation , the delegation of 12 kitty-cats . . A very special work of art. I am a frequent purchaser of the art work and enjoy every piece of it. Happy New Year, Ms. Kelly Cook ! 🎉

About

Fine art, recycled materials

When my son was very young, life was very tough.

In a bout of stress and frustration I lost sight of what was important in my life-
I spent my time mostly watching America's Next Top model on TIVO for 7+ hours a day and eating my feelings

... I know, right!

When we moved to a new house, I took that as a chance to change everything.

I had always wanted to be an artist- but it intimidated me. I felt afraid to tell someone out loud that I did art for a living. Who am I any way?

An artist, that's who.

Out with the TV, out with the junk food (well, most of it) and in with things that were more simple and more actually - me -

Painting has been a therapy and a catharsis.

And I am a big believer in things that are broken being restored

I also love do things just for the sake of being beautiful or artsy or community.

I am really fortunate to have support and love of two wonderful sons, an equally flaky-artist husband (author Jeff Cook) and a gigantic community of amazing friends that have restored me and support me in my wild dreams.

Thank you for coming by my little shop. I hope you find something wonderful.

PS - see a video of me making wood block paintings:

I would love to combine shipping and do any custom work that you like. If you are also an artist I am always open for a swayp. Please let me know what deals you may like to swing before checkout.

The nature of vintage paper is that it is delicate. Please treat your piece with great care. Ask about custom framing and mounting. Little tears and stains are part of the fantastic character of using recycled materials. Each piece is unique yours. Enjoy the idiosyncrasies.

NOTE: your listing is for this item or one just like it :) Please let me know if you would like a picture of your exact item after I create it. Your happiness with your original piece and my service is guaranteed and any changes will be teeny tiny (and probably unnoticeable)

Payment
I will take any methods of payment, but payment must be clear before item will be shipped. If you need to cancel email me immediately. Of course all work is 100% guaranteed. Please ask for any additional photos or descriptions before purchase. You will love your piece or send it right back for a full refund. Buyer will pay shipping both ways.

Heartsy buyers if your item exceeds your voucher I will bill you for the remainder and complete payment before shipping :)

Any one coupon can be used at any time, but please no coupon or discount combinations--- this includes heartsy vouchers AND if I gave you a special deal. Thanks you for supporting my tiny shop!
Shipping
I prefer USPS because UPS is super expensive, but I will be happy to ship any method you prefer if you don't mind paying for it. I am also happy to do insurance on pieces (you never know) and hand deliver or pick up if you are in the Northern Colorado/South/East Wyoming region. If you are not in the US just let me know, I am very happy to ship to you too... we just need to find the best shipping method.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to be happy. Refunds and Exchanges will all be considered. Please make life easy on the both of us by asking questions and doing a dialog before a sale. If you don't choose insurance I cannot be held responsible for damaged by USPS, etc.
Additional policies and FAQs
chairtywater.org is an amazing organization. Even if you don't find a piece you want to purchase please check them out. 10% of everything I sell goes to building wells in Africa.
