The World Around Me

I started my shop by just selling a few pet portraits, then people portraits. It started slow due to being very busy with my mural business also. Eventually I started adding paintings of photos that I would take while on vacation. My favourite at the moment are gardens and landscapes, and can't paint them fast enough! I just love the feeling when I am done with one, knowing that I captured a moment in my life that I loved and get lost in the feeling all over again....

    Ever since I could hold a pencil, I wanted to draw! I would just draw scribbles, and keep asking my mom "Is this anything?". Eventually those scribbles did turn into things, and then no one could stop me!

Returns and exchanges
If you are not happy with my print(s) I will offer a full refund, excluding shipping charges, providing it arrives back in exactly the same condition as before it was sent out. Please contact me within 2 weeks of receipt of your item.
However, this will not be possible with custom made portraits, as I would not be able to re-sell this to another customer. That is why I will send you a good quality scan for your approval before shipping. However, if your artwork arrives in a damaged state please contact me at once.
My aim is for my customers to enjoy my artwork and be happy with their purchase, and I will try and resolve any problems that may arise immediately.
Paypal is best because it is fast, secure, and widely used. You do not need a Paypal account to be able to pay through Paypal.

I also accept Credit Cards through Etsy Direct Checkout and Etsy gift cards.

By special request, I also accept money orders.
Artwork to US addresses is shipped via Priority Mail.
Packaging and shipping is carried out with quality and safety in mind. All artwork is securely packaged to ensure safe delivery and to maintain quality and best condition throughout the journey while in transit until delivery.

-If you see a print you love but want it in a different size - let me know!

I'd like very much to hear from you. Please leave feedback about your experience with my store and products in your Etsy Feedback section after you receive your items. I would appreciate any suggestions you have to make my store better and let me know how you found me. Thank you!
