About

I Love Mexico

I started this shop to share with others, the beauty of Mexico I've translated through my art. I fell in Love with Mexico when I was 18 years old traveling for the first time across the border between Arizona and Mexico. Experiencing a world I had never known before, except from the stories my mother told me about my grandfather.

My grandfather was an actor, and an academic playwright, teaching drama at a private college in Davenport, Iowa, where I grew up. In the 1940's he would journey to Santa Fe, and Taos, New Mexico, and further into Mexico to discover the lives and cultures of people he was so inspired to learn about. He wanted to write plays so he could share these incredible cultures with others. He consulted, and hired Native American and Mexican actors to come to Iowa to create the most authentic representations as he could. He was a believer in educating others, to inform and to learn and to respect and understand we are all the same no matter what our skin tones.

So, in a way I was following in my grandfathers footsteps, though it didn't occur to me until I was actually in Mexico, long after my grandfather had died. I created this loteria project to show the rich culture of Mexico in a fun way, through the traditional and much loved Mexican Bingo game called "Loteria". Most Americans are unfamiliar with Mexico's rich history and the amazing depth, love and strength of it's people who make up this culture, and I wanted to express this in my paintings. I hope you can feel the love that I hold in my heart for this culture, and for my grandfathers vision.

This shop sells limited edition prints from the series of 54 original oil paintings from the installation titled "La Loteria: An Exploration of Mexico" that has been traveling around the states for the last 10 years. Because the original artwork is a large installation of 54 oil on wood paintings, they are not for individual sale, and can only be purchased as the whole installation. That is why I had these high end giclee limited edition prints made. Because of the limited edition, some are more in stock than others. Some of these prints only have 1-2 left. When they are all gone, they will never be made again.

    I love Mexico. The culture, the people, the food, todos. Traveling and living there off and on for 20 years has given me insights into another world that I want everyone to know about. This work titled "Loteria: An Exploration of Mexico" does that.

Bienvenidos, Hello! Thank you for your interest in my work!
Below you can find out a little more about the shop policies regarding Payment and Shipping. If you have questions about anything, please feel free to call (602.790.4009) or contact me using the "contact " link in the side toolbar. Thanks!

I only post 1 of each item - "1 in stock" only means 1 in the etsy store at a time, this is especially true for the limited edition prints. For example in the limited edition of 50, I will list only one, but there may still be prints available of that edition. - if you have a question about getting more than number listed please contact me - also if you are interested in an item that is listed as "sold out" please ask me, I may have another, or can custom print one up just for you

Returns and exchanges
I am unable to replace any prints damaged during shipment with new copies. If an unfortunate event happens that your prints are damaged during shipment, please contact USPS immediately to start the process of filing an insurance claim. When I pay for the shipping and insurance in full, you will be able to claim full reimbursement.

Please don't hesitate to CONTACT me if you have special delivery needs. I will happily cater to you. Bear in mind that additional charges may apply to orders requiring special delivery or rush delivery.

Please remember, that even though these prints are made on heavy rag paper, they are somewhat fragile, and prone to dings in the paper, that can occur with simple handling, and therefore may render the print “damaged and unsellable”. With the limited edition prints, if they are damaged, they are considered unsellable, and then destroyed.I want you to be happy in love with your purchase, and you may return an item, but I will not do exchanges. Returns must be mailed back within three days of when it arrives to the Buyer. You will receive a full refund of the purchase price of the piece of artwork upon receipt of return. Return must be in original condition to receive refund. If the item is damaged at all, no refund will be granted. Shipping price will not be included in the refund.

All purchases are final unless your order is damaged in transit, I do allow exchanges with prior approval. (see shipping info for protection en route to you as damages do happen). Please let me know if you are not satisfied with your purchase and I will evaluate per situation - I want you to love what you ordered.

If you get an incorrect order you must tell me within 3 days of receipt so I can correct the situation. After 3 days it is considered a final sale.
Payment
Buyers who live in the state of Arizona are subject to local State, City, County taxes 9.2% for retail items. If you live in Phoenix, come on by my studio and pick it up and pay no shipping at all! Please call ahead.
Shipping
I love my work and package it with a lot of care. I promise that it will arrive to you in the best of conditions. Small works will be shipped flat, larger prints (larger than 18") will be shipped rolled in a tube. I am now offering free shipping (U.S. only) and each piece is insured for the value of the print.

All prints are packaged for shipping in sturdy, custom built cardboard packaging and are insured for the value of your order. TVFA, Inc. will not be held accountable for any damage to prints that may occur during shipment or orders lost in the mail. I trust the USPS & Fedex to safely and efficiently deliver your order in great condition and on schedule.

Packages shipped within the United States usually take 7-10 days to arrive at their destination from the date the order is placed. Prints get shipped out from my studio within 2 business days after order has been placed. But often they arrive in 5-7 days.
Additional policies and FAQs
Purchase of prints does not mean that you are entitled to the usage of the image.
