About DreamHalfFull

Sales 78
On Etsy since 2012

A girl and a dream...

The idea for Dream Half Full was a long time coming. I've loved drawing since I could first pick up a crayon. Throughout school, I made sure art was a part of the curriculum; I minored in Studio Art in college. My art has been displayed at the Modis building, FSCJ, City Arts Factory, the RAM (Riverside Arts Market) Gallery, and Biscotti's in Jacksonville. My major was Psychology, and I often use art as a way to depict metaphorical or dream-derived ideas (I know, I know; "That explains a lot," right?) Now working in the corporate world, keeping creativity fresh is more important to me than ever. Anyone working full-time knows the struggle of balancing work with the soul-nourishing stuff. Always wanting to find a broader, public venue to show art, I thought Etsy might be the perfect answer.

Everything you see here is handmade (or printed from handmade work) by me. You can check out my sketch blog for messy, less formal, loose work at: artstuffbyk [at] wordpress.com.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
I care greatly about my art and its buyers, and my goal is to get your items to you in their original condition. If your item is damaged, please let me know, and I'll do my best to rectify the situation. If interested in a refund/exhange for damaged items, you must notify me within 1 week of receiving the item, and you will be responsible for return shipping costs. You will be refunded once I receive the original item back for returns, and for exchanges the new item will ship once I receive the old. If an item is one of a kind, an exhange will not be possible. Please note that I cannot process exchanges or refunds for items you just "don't like," so it's important to fully review the item description and convo me with any questions in advance of purchase.

Additional Policy

Due to variations of individual monitor settings, colors depicted in product photographs may appear slightly different from actual color.
I currently accept payment through PayPal. You can pay through PayPal even if you don't have a PayPal account by doing the following:

Choose the PayPal option during checkout.
Client the "Pay Now" button after submitting your order.
Scroll down and see 2 options: the second one is to pay using a credit or debit card
without signing up for a PayPal account.

All payments must be made in full. Item(s) will be shipped once payment has cleared.

Your Shipping Address
Please make sure your PayPal address is up to date. If the address you enter during Etsy checkout is different than your address in PayPal, I will contact you for clarification, and hold your item until an address is confirmed. Provided that I have a confirmed address for you, item(s) will be typically be shipped within 3 business days of payment clearing.

If you want to purchase an item but have it mailed to someone else's address (e.g. giving a gift), add the address to your PayPal account before purchasing by:

Logging into PayPal and selecting "My Account" at the top of the page
Click "Street Address" under "Account Info."
Edit the address or select "Add Address" at the bottom of the page and save as a
gift recipient.

Non-Payment Procedure
For issues of non-payment, I will send you a reminder and a PayPal invoice/reminder, but be aware that if I don't receive a response or payment within 1 week, I may have to cancel the transaction. Please buy seriously!

I reserve the right to refuse a sale to anyone with a history of abusive feedback or malicious behavior to Etsy members.

NOTE: Currently I only accept PayPal payments, although I may make case-by-case allowances of money orders if requested via convo. Note that, in those cases, only USPS money orders made out in US currency will be accepted, and your order will not ship until I have received and cashed the money order.
Photos and art prints are shipped either in rigid mailers or in mailers that include backing for protection. All items are shipped using USPS First Class, except in certain cases where faster shipping is requested and the shipping charged will cover the cost.

NOTE: See above in "Payment" section information about addresses. I will ship to the address listed in your PayPal account except in certain case-by-case circumstances. If your Etsy address is different, I will hold item until clarification is received.

Shipping Internationally: Items ship from the U.S. If you are overseas, please note that customs may hold packages up to 6 weeks. You are responsible for any customs fees or taxes associated.

While domestic orders typically will be shipped between 1 - 3 days after receiving payment, international orders may take up to another 2 - 3 days depending on my availability to visit the post office, although whenever possible I try to stick to the 1 - 3 day timeframe.
Additional policies and FAQs
Yes, I do custom commissions (as my schedule permits! My typical custom requests are for portraits executed in graphite, pen and ink, or acrylic, but I am open to other subject matter and materials. Please send me a convo if you're interested in a commission to discuss the details. Once agreed upon, I will open an Etsy listing for you to purchase your custom item. Note that payment is required at the time the order is placed.

*I reserve reproduction rights for all items purchased and commissioned.*
