About MousewhiskerStudio

Sales 128
On Etsy since 2017

I am an artist based in beautiful rural New Zealand

My artwork is inspired by the beauty of God's creation, and my love for animals and birds... I enjoy painting them in wild and garden settings, as well as on stones as 'rock pets'. Though I have been painting and drawing all my life, I first began painting stones when I was about 14 years old, and the addiction has continued ever since. I particularly enjoy the challenge of creating the illusion of a real, live, furry (or feathery) creature on a cold hard stone!

Acrylic is my main medium, and I enjoy its flexibility, in that it is possible to combine a watercolour-like transparency with oil-like richness. For my wall paintings, I use wooden panels instead of canvas as a surface, because of the smoothness, which allows for greater detail.

Mousewhisker Studio is so named because of the mouse which hops onto my signature when I'm not looking... The 'whisker' part expresses my aspiration to create art 'fine enough to be painted with a mouse's whisker!'.

Thankyou for visiting :)

Frequently asked questions
Processing Time

I generally post within 2 business days of receiving payment; occasionally 3 if things are extra busy. If you need your item in a hurry or by a specific date, just let me know and I'll do my best to send it as soon as possible.

Shipping - New Zealand

Orders within New Zealand are sent via tracked parcel post. Estimated delivery is 1-5 business days from date of posting but this may vary depending on your location and/or busy times of year. An option to upgrade to courier with a delivery estimate of 1-3 days is available during checkout.

Shipping - International

International delivery estimate (from date of purchase) is 5-15 business days. This does not allow for unexpected delays such as customs, peak seasonal mail times etc, so please order in plenty of time if you need your item by a certain date.

International orders are sent via standard airmail to keep postage price to a minimum, due to the high cost of sending tracked (courier) from New Zealand. If you would like a shipping upgrade (e.g. tracking, express), please contact me before purchasing.

Packaging

Each work of art will be packed with care and sent in sturdy waterproof packaging. If the purchase is a gift, I can send directly to the recipient with a note from the sender if requested. A gift wrapping option is also available at checkout.

Returns

If for any reason you are not fully satisfied with your purchase, you may return it to me within 30 days of receipt (provided it is returned in the same condition it arrived) and you will be refunded in full (return shipping at buyers expense).

Custom and personalised orders

Unfortunately I am unable to take custom orders at the moment.

Care instructions

Your animal stone can be cleaned gently with a damp cloth if necessary. It is sealed with a good quality, water resistant varnish, however, it is not suitable to be kept outside as a garden ornament. To ensure your rock pet stays in pristine condition keep indoors and preferably out of excessive direct sunlight.
