About

Colorful, unique art and craft from central Texas.

I was born in San Antonio, Texas. I began life with a passion for art that has continued throughout my life. I've always loved the creative process: the getting your hands in part, the touch, the color, even the smell of the wood, clay or canvas. As an artist I mix it up and work in different media. One week I will be painting, the next sewing and another working on recycled found object crafts. My work tends to have a distinct narrative quality whether it is the images on a painting or fabric or even an upcycled object telling the story of where it has been and what it has become.

I never begin a piece with a preconceived notion of how it will turn out; instead, I let each piece evolve into its own expression. I want the viewer to become a part of the narrative as they bring their own life experiences into the interpretation of the piece.

I have taken numerous art classes throughout my life but I graduated from the University of Houston, Clear Lake with both a B.A. and an M.A. in art.

I am currently living with my family and creating art in the Austin, Texas area. My work can be purchased at www.ElisaAlvarado.etsy.com or at local art fairs and street markets in the Austin and Round Rock area.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Please pay via PayPal or with a credit card through Etsy Direct Checkout upon purchase. TEXAS sales are subject to a 6.25% sales tax. Your PayPal and Etsy mailing address must be the same or verified via Etsy Conversations before I will ship. If you buy more than one item at a time and they can be safely shipped together and that saves you money in shipping costs, I will refund the difference back to you via PayPal or Direct Checkout. If you do not pay within 7 days, I will cancel the sale.

Cancellation Policy: I reserve the right to cancel any sale at any time and upon cancellation I will promptly refund any money paid to me by the buyer.

Buyer is responsible for ANY additional shipping fees if OVERNIGHT shipping is requested by the buyer or the incorrect shipping address is provided by the buyer.

Shipping
Orders will be shipped to the address you have on file with Etsy / Paypal. Please check it prior to submitting an order. Anything returned to me or lost due to an incorrect address will result in new shipping charges, which will be the responsibility of the buyer so please verify your shipping address. I usually will ship within 1 business day provided the Post Office is open (not a holiday or weekend) and I don't have a family emergency. MOST ITEMS SHIP TO THE UNITED STATES ONLY. Smaller items are available for shipping to Canada also but will only ship via regular mail NOT priority due to cost.

Your PayPal and Etsy mailing address must be the same or verified via Etsy Conversations before I will ship. I prefer to ship via US Postal Service Priority Mail whenever possible because it is faster, so far has always arrived undamaged and I get free boxes so I don't have to pass that cost onto you. Larger items may ship US Postal Service Parcel Post (or UPS if requested). Drawings will ship in padded envelopes via First Class Mail unless stated otherwise. Insurance is included on all items shipped via Priority Mail to the US only. Insurance covers only the cost of the item if it is lost or damaged in shipping.

*****IF YOU RECEIVE A DAMAGED PACKAGE PLEASE PHOTOGRAPH AND KEEP BOTH THE PACKAGING AND THE CONTENTS AND NOTIFY ME AS SOON AS POSSIBLE*****

I try to keep shipping costs down for my customers. I always promptly refund all shipping overages over one dollar.

Please contact me before purchase if you have any special requests as I am a fair and accommodating seller. I know that shipping costs are really high so I usually lose money on shipping as I don't charge for bubble wrap or tape.
Refunds and Exchanges
PLEASE EMAIL ME VIA ETSY CONVERSATIONS FIRST WITH ANY CONCERNS BEFORE RETURNING AN ITEM. You may return your item within 21 days of original purchase in its original condition for a refund of the original purchase price and the original cost of one-way shipping. The buyer is responsible for the cost of return shipping to the seller.

I reserve the right to cancel a sale for any reason at which time the buyer's money will be promptly refunded.
Additional policies and FAQs
All art comes from a NONSMOKING HOME and I DO NOT use perfume, febreeze, or air fresheners in my home as we have asthma. We have a small rescue dog but he is not allowed upstairs where my studio is. We have a baby gate to keep him and his allergens away from my space as I am mildly allergic to dogs. :o)

GO GREEN: I try to recycle packing materials whenever possible. But, I will only use clean odor free packing materials with your art.
