    Artist Statement and Insights

    Hello there! Here at Minkiewicz Studios LLC, I create unique, handmade equine art pieces and collectibles celebrating the spirit of Equus. I'm mostly focused on the equine, but every so often other critters will scamper in to liven up the menagerie! I work mostly in realism, but I also enjoy stylistic interpretations that explore cultural and spiritual themes and totems.

    ARTIST STATEMENT
    I seek to explore the inner life of an individual soul resonating within the living moment so that I may perceive and convey this gracious creature with sensitivity, insight, and kinship. The story from the animal's point of view is what captivates me and compels my hands to shape the clay.

      I'm a professional artist primarily working in realistic equine sculpture, but I love to venture into more stylized interpretations of the equine and explore various other critters from time to time. I live in Boise, Idaho with my rats and hubby.

    Hello there! I create a diverse portfolio of work and it seems I always have my face in some project or prototype. I also sell my work in many different outlets so I'm always working on shipping, which takes up a lot of time.

    Because of that, I want to let you know that sometimes I can be a bit slow in responding to messages due to my schedule, so a five day lapse isn't unusual. Just know I'm not ignoring you, I'm just madly working in the studio or getting shipping out of the door!

    I don't accept cancellations
    But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
    The following items can't be returned or exchanged
    Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
    • Custom or personalized orders
    • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
    • Digital downloads
    • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)

    Returns and exchange details
    I accept returns and exchanges on all my pieces. However, there are two exceptions:

    1. Returns are not accepted for tiles.

    2. Exchanges are not accepted for tiles as well, except if the tile is broken during its journey to you. If this happens, please notify me within 24 hours of receiving it with a quality photo of the damage. However, I cannot guarantee that your new tile will look like your broken one since glaze has it's own mercurial one-of-a-kind nature.

    Lost tiles in the mail or through customs is quite rare, and will be handled on a per case basis.
    Payment
    I accept Paypal and credit cards through Paypal.

    I also accept checks, money orders, and cashier's checks, and such payments need to be received within five days to hold the item. Also, the order will be held until these payments clear.

    Idaho residents, please add 6% sales tax.

    I leave feedback for buyers, and please remember to leave feedback for me when your tile(s) arrive. Thanks!
    Shipping
    All prices include shipping First Class or Priority Mail in the domestic United States, as indicated in the sale listing or as I deem appropriate.

    I ship anywhere on the planet, so convo me for international rates. All items will be listed accurately on customs forms, so buyers are responsible for duties and customs charges. International buyers will be invoiced for the difference in postage.

    I usually ship within ten days of payment, but if there's a delay I'll let you know. Sometimes life sits on my chest and pins me for longer than I like!

    I can combine shipping to one address as long as everything is shipped at one time, so please convo me for multiple orders.
    Additional policies and FAQs
    Each tile is carefully packaged in a cellophane bag with a hanging cord and logo sticker, then cocooned in a bubblewrap baggie and boxed for shipment. You can use the cord to knot onto the tile to hang it, or use something else to your liking.

    Other items are carefully packaged and wrapped on a per case basis to ensure safe travels to you.

    As always, if you have any questions, please convo me!

    Frequently asked questions
    Custom and personalized orders

    Custom or personalized orders are possible on some of my chackis, collectibles, and giftware, either to the piece itself or to the packaging. However, I need plenty of time for that. So just contact me at sminksales@gmail.com and I can send you my specific policies and parameters for these kinds of orders.

    Sizing details

    The size of my work varies greatly, being so diverse. My work can range from micro-size to large free-standing or wall-mounted art pieces.

    Care instructions

    My work is often fragile due to either the intricate design or materials used. So handle and display with care!

    I don't offer a repair service for my work.

    Gift wrapping and packaging

    Gift wrapping is available for collectibles, giftware, and chackis upon request for an additional $5 fee.

    Wholesale availability

    Some of my collectibles are available for wholesale pricing. However, I'll need quite a bit of time to complete the order, so contact me at sminksales@gmail.com and I can send you my specific policies and parameters for these kinds of orders.

    Commissions

    I don't accept commissions for my fine art.
