Aren't these girls beautiful? This is my recent pastel portrait commission, for a wonderful father's birthday gift! He and his girls loved it. This is one of my favorites works! Do you like it too?

Helping YOU enjoy the Finest Things in Life

Whether you are looking for original paintings for your living space, or a custom portrait for your special occasion, I look forward to bringing you and your family the perfect work of art to enjoy for years to come.

Art is my first and favorite language, it is beautiful and universal. My paintings express happiness, hope, love, contemplation, longing... Like words, my brushstrokes can be vigorous and bold, or hesitant and tender.

I speak to you, in the language of art, to bring beauty, peace and comfort into your space...

If you would like a custom painting, perhaps of a favorite person, pet or other subject matter, please contact me with your ideas! I welcome your requests and questions.

Thank you so much for your interest in my art. I hope your order goes smoothly and easily. Please contact me if you need help.

Payment is expected within three days of your purchase.

Custom orders are created after your order is completed. You will receive an email from me to confirm your custom order is received. You can contact me any time, I am always happy to hear from you.
After you place an order, you will receive a message from me to say hello and thank you, and to let you know when the painting will be shipped. Usually I ship within 3 business days after receiving payment, except for custom portraits, which take longer.

Your painting will arrive safely and securely lots of stiff cardboard padding.

You will be glad to know that when shipping to US and Canada, every painting over $60 includes tracking and delivery confirmation, and every custom portrait over $500 comes with signature confirmation to ensure your painting arrives safely.

• Shipping outside of US and Canada:

If you would like a custom shipping quote, please let me know your location. I will suggest a few shipping options for you.

Please note, customs duty fees or applicable taxes on international purchases, are the sole responsibility of the purchaser.

• Combined Shipping:
I do combine shipping costs on similarly sized paintings, please contact me if you have questions for multiple purchases. The 'additional item' price shown below is for sending items of the same size, or if the second item is smaller.

Please make sure your Paypal address is correct. The shipping process is faster (and more secure) if your Paypal and Etsy address match. If they do not match, I will send you an email asking to which address I should send your package.
Refunds and Exchanges
You will most likely be happy with your painting, because I care a lot about making you happy. I put 100000% effort into making my paintings the best possible!

I want to make sure you are happy with your order, so please contact me if by the extremely impossible chance you're not completely satisfied!

You can give approval of your custom portrait before it is shipped, so you can relax and feel sure it is exactly what you want. I appreciate your understanding that custom orders are non-refundable.

If you order a non-custom painting, in the unlikely chance you are not happy or satisfied, please let me know as soon as possible. The painting will need to be shipped back to me in the same condition and package it came in. Please pack with care! Once I receive the painting in its original condition, you will be issued a refund using your original method of purchase, minus the cost of the original shipping charges.
