About

Fantasy Mythical Prints Paintings & Jewelry

Octavia is not your common or garden fantasy artist. If you are amazed by the swathe of complimentary influences displayed by her diverse and beautiful portfolio of artwork, then you are in good company. Her secret is to always be in awe of the world around her and the peoples and cultures that make it so inspiring. For most of the last 8 years, Octavia has experienced that world first hand; like a futuristic gypsy -a technomad if you like - or, in her own words, "a Perpetual Tourist". She lived in America, Thailand, Philippines, New Zealand and UK.

Octavia grew into her unusual traveling lifestyle from humble beginnings as the daughter of a farmer in Herefordshire. Even as a child she would paint while sitting at the dining table while the rest of the family watched television. Or scratch away in her sketch-pad under the bed by torchlight while everyone else slept. Growing up in the lush English countryside, there was a veritable bottomless well of subjects for her artwork.

After graduating in Illustration and Graphic Design from Art College in her home town of Hereford, Octavia began to pursue a career in custom painting: One-off original airbrush fantasy artworks on motorbikes, crash-helmets or guitars. Unfortunately, luggage allowances for air travel don't stretch to air compressors and a spray bay, so custom painting isn't the easiest career to follow when living out of a suitcase. This is where her versatility came into its own, and she was able to draw upon the experiences from her college days to begin building a business from the ground up as a freelance illustrator.

"I've always looked for a way to express my spiritual side. Now, whenever I'm not busy designing tattoos and learning how to run a business online, my business "Lunarian Art" gives me the chance to indulge my calling to incorporate crystals, and chakras and the fae into my own art... much of which I give away as computer desktop wallpapers."

Growing up and living so close to nature, Octavia has nurtured a life-long fascination with nature spirits and the faery realm. Octavia's painting, "Moon Goddess", was commissioned by a close friend who had no idea that she was to be the subject of the painting at the time, but both artist and subject were overwhelmed by the huge flow of positive emotion and healing that came from it when it was done. Almost immediately, Octavia knew that she wanted to provide healing and love through her artwork. The complex symbology and deep meanings behind the many elements that she has incorporated into much of her art since Moon Goddess is testament to the tremendous care she takes when selecting the particular crystals and other textures that contribute textures and additional meaning to each piece.

"When I paint I'll already have a few ideas to start with, but as I create I let the work speak to me. I want to capture the heart and soul of the person I'm painting, and let the magic flow out of that. For me, all of life is about the people I meet, and the messages I receive along the way. The fae are very real to me, and that's why I’m inspired to paint them. No matter what country or culture you look into, each of us has many nature spirits, they are true guardians in this world and they are the ones to teach us the lessons of nature, and how to live alongside her."

Privacy
This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.

Information I Collect

To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order, for example), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

• as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
• when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
• if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
• as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 7 years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

How to Contact Me

For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Octavia Vaughan am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at tave [!at] lunarianart.com
