When I first saw a photo of this illustration ojn the cover of a Charles de Lint novel, I knew I had to have a copy of my own. It is my favorite of all the ones this artist has created. I had ordered two prints, and not only were they packaged carefully, but the artist included an additional nature-inspired print. I am thrilled with my order, and I look forward to purchasing additional artwork.

About

Living in an enchanted wood with the goblins and pixies

Ginger Kelly began in 2009 when I started to receive offers from friends and neighbours to buy my drawings. I'd heard about Etsy from other artists and sellers I met at markets and decided to open a shop to share my drawings and daydreams of mermaids, faerie folk and other creatures of myth & legend.

I'm now living and working from my very own studio in a tiny Australian timber cottage converted from a 1950's garage. Here, I'm nestled on the side of a green valley next to a river, cramming every indoor space with my illustrations, fabrics, handmade animal dolls, cards, jewelry, craft and sewing supplies. I call my work-space 'organised chaos' and I love it to bits. Outside, my horse, my rabbit, the local wildlife and my little dog Toby keep me entertained with their endless antics.

I work part time as a vet nurse four days a week, while every night and on the weekends I'm at my desk or working in my studio, drawing, painting, designing and running my textile & surface pattern design business Thistle and Fox.

I run both my Etsy shops all by myself. Which means lots of late nights! It is incredibly important to me to be involved in every stage of the creative process... from my first imaginings to creating a custom piece and delivering it into the hands of its new owner.
The main reason I love selling & shopping on Etsy is discovering amazing handmade things from makers like myself all over the world and being able to stay in contact with my loyal fans & customers.

Inspiration comes from many places. Far too many to name in a few thousand words and I've always preferred pictures! I use Pinterest to keep track of all the artists, designers and bloggers that inspire me to think, dream and most of all, create the things I love!

ABOUT MY ARTWORK
◥◥◥ ◤◤◤◢◣ ◥◥◥ ◤◤◤

I prefer to work in pencil and watercolor or using digital painting and digital photo collage techniques.
Many of the artworks in my gallery are photo manipulations/collages using a blend of painting, drawing, my own photography and some stock images generously provided for use by the photographers and models.

♦ Prints are professionally printed on 200-250 gsm matte archive quality paper, ready for framing. Giclee prints on cotton paper are now also available and will replace my digital print range in mid 2016.

♦ Sizes vary from small postcards to large A3 posters. Most prints have a white border to make framing easier.

♦ All prints are reproduced exactly as intended. Please be aware that images may appear darker on some types of computer monitors.

I hope you enjoy my shop!

Frequently asked questions

Do you offer Combined Shipping?

Yes, I do my best to estimate accurate shipping prices based on average weight of parcels and the prices of Australia Post. With multiple items added to your cart the shipping could be a little more than you expected so if you are unsure, please contact me. I will make a reserved listing for you with an accurate shipping quote on your order.

If you have both postcards and large prints in your order, they will need to be sent separately as I cannot roll up postcards.

As a guide, parcels up to 500g shipped internationally from Australia will be $17-25 AUD. Small parcels & Large letters (such as postcard packs) are approx $8-12 shipped within Australia.

Cushion covers & tote bags ship from the USA.

How do I order a custom fantasy portrait?

Please contact me to discuss the type of portrait you would like. I will give you an accurate quote for price and time till completion. Please include the following info:
✔ Pencil Drawing or Digital Painting?
✔ Your favorite colors, theme, animals... for example 'I love green and blue, and see my portrait as a woodland stream scene with otters'.

You will need to supply clear digital photos for me to use as references/stock images for your portrait.

✔ 50% deposit is required before the work is begun. Remainder may be paid in installments depending on the time frame in which the work is to be completed. You will find a number of deposit options available here in my shop if you would like to confirm your booking immediately

Wholesale availability

✔ 10+ of the same size print, or
✔ 10 + pieces of jewelry, or

For information about wholesale cushion covers, please contact me with the following information:

♣ Your shop location/shipping location
♣ Size/s of cushion cover you are interested in purchasing
♣ Quantity you need and how soon do you need them?
♣ List of Designs/Illustrations from my shop that you like (if you can copy & paste the URL of each listing you would like to order, this will make it much easier to communicate what you want)

Why are some of your items being sent from the USA?

Although I live in Australia, most of my 'Made to Order' prints, tote bags and cushion covers are made for me by my printing partners in the USA.
I have carefully chosen to work with indie companies that consistently produce high quality work, reproduce my artwork the way I want it to be represented and they provide safe, affordable international shipping so your order will be sure to arrive in excellent condition.
Regardless of where your order is shipping from, you will always deal directly with me and any order problems can be sorted out by contacting me as soon as you receive your parcel. Rest assured, problems are very rare and I am always happy with the customer service I have received from my printing partners in the past.

Gift wrapping and packaging

If your order is intended as a gift please make a note during checkout and I will do my best to include a little extra tissue paper, gift card or something to make the parcel really special!
I'm always happy to include a personalized card with a handwritten note if your order is being sent directly to the gift recipient.

Care instructions

✔ JEWELRY & Hair Clips/Combs

My jewelry is made from recycled vintage metals and new glass beads. All metals are lead & nickel free so they are safe to wear against your skin but to keep them looking shiny & new it is best not to wear them while swimming and keep them in a dry place when not being worn. You can clean the metal parts by rubbing with cotton wool or soft cloth dipped in a mixture of apple cider vinegar and salt. It will remove tarnish and make them just like new again! Rinse with clean water and dry thoroughly after cleaning.

This method works best on raw brass and copper. Metals that have been given an antiqued or burnished treatment (the comb part of the hair accessories) are best cleaned with a damp soft cloth.
