About

My not so glamorous beginnings, as I strive for a creative future!

My creations are as unique as my name, Prudence, which translates to Providenzia. I disliked my name while growing up, but adore the originality of it as an artist. I was named after my Sicilian Nana; (whom I loved to make laugh because her entire face would light up). My first introduction to art as a young girl was sitting on my Nanu's lap at the kitchen table, watching in awe as he would draw pictures of detailed ships from the old country onto paper napkins with his ball point pen. One of my lifelong regrets by the way is not saving any of those masterpieces.

My workshop has always been in the basement of my home. I enjoy being surrounded by paints, brushes, glassware, and other assorted random odds and ends. Artists are really secret hoarders in some respects, except we actually utilize our "junk" eventually, for that perfect project!

My BA in graphic art, led me to a five year advertising career, which led to my marriage to Michael, which lead to our four lovely daughters, which turned into twelve years as a stay home mom and home crafter/ seller, decorative painter, muralist, substitute teacher, part time custom framer, Special Ed. paraprofessional, and finally an etsy shop owner.

From here I aspire to own a working open door studio where kids of all ages and abilities can explore, play and learn all about the many wonderful mediums available for communicating personal expression. It will be like therapy for the soul!

    Welcome to Pruvisions, an eye for design. I see potential to create something beautiful from what others cast away. The more unusual its shape, size, and texture the better. The challenge begins by looking at things with a fresh eye, and transforming it into the treasure that hides within. Kind of like Cinderella's Fairy Godmother, except I make my magic with a paintbrush instead of a wand. Bibbity boppity boo.

Welcome to PruVisions, my outlet for stress relief. I am the mother of four beautiful daughters, a Special Ed. Aide in the Wauwatosa School District, a part time custom framer at Michael's Arts & Crafts in Brookfield WI and an artist. My dream is to one day combine my love of teaching young children of all abilities, with my passion for art, and open a working studio where we can create side by side, learning from each other. Maybe we could sell our creations on an etsy shop of our own and support our studio with the proceeds. Wouldn't that be wonderful? I am also a dreamer!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Please make all payments through Paypal.
Shipping
Exact charges are determined by providing an accurate zip code before ordering. A shipping overcharge or undercharge may be adjusted after ordering if necessary. I also believe in using recycled shipping materials as often as possible to pass that savings onto my customers and so as to limit my environmental footprint.

I will package most items myself and ship through the US Post Office Priority Mail whenever possible to try to keep costs down. If your purchase is a gift, please specify your desired instructions and I can gift wrap and attach a special note from the sender.

I am happy to ship outside the USA as well, send me your info and I will look into exact costs for customs and shipping fees for you.

Most of my work is complete and ready to ship. My candles are made to order, and therefore required additional painting and drying time prior to shipment. If personalization or other alterations are desired, ship date may be agreed upon at the time of ordering. All custom orders may require additional time to create.

Unless otherwise arranged, shipping costs will include $50.00 insurance coverage and tracking fees to protect both seller and buyer. Please let me know that your purchase has arrived in good shape at your soonest convenience. Your honest feedback is encouraged and greatly appreciated.
Refunds and Exchanges
•Use Etsy Conversations to communicate about any questions, special details or problems.
•Read the shop's policies before purchasing.
•Provide an accurate shipping address during Checkout.
•Before returning an item, check the shop's policies and contact the seller.
•In the event of a return, retain proof of shipping and/or delivery confirmation that includes the date and recipient’s address (at least the city/state or zip code).
If you are not satisfied with your purchase, please contact me so we can make arrangements to return the product for a refund of the actual cost of the item. I am not able to refund shipping costs. If an item is damaged in shipping, please contact me immediately so we can correct the issue.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders are always welcome. Many items can be personalized with names, dates, or messages for a small additional fee. In some cases colors may be specified.
Due to the candle making process, there may be some "bubbles" in the surface of the candles which may appear as dents. Because each candle is painted by hand, there may be slight variances in color or design.
Carefully store painted candles wrapped in tissue paper to avoid scratching the painted surface and lay flat in a cool dry climate to extend their longevity.

When ordering multiple quantities, please specify how many candles you would like. Hand painted LED candles are also available as a safer decorating option. If interested, please inquire about the cost of this alternative.


PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

● Remove packing and tags before burning candles.
● Prior to each use, always trim candle wicks before lighting to about one centimeter (1 cm) in height. Long or crooked wicks may cause uneven burning, dripping or flaring.
● Use only sturdy flame resistant candle holders on a stable, heat-resistant surface and keep candles away from all flammable materials including but not limited to; furniture, drapes, bedding, carpets, books, paper, etc.
● Avoid drafts to help prevent rapid or uneven burning, and the risk of accidental fire. For your safety, never leave a burning candle unattended for any amount of time.
● Do not touch or move the candle until it has completely cooled.
● To get the fullest use from your candle, it is best to properly extinguish the candle, allow it to cool, trim the wick, and then relight the candle.
● Never burn a candle all the way down. It is recommended for a margin of safety, to discontinue burning a pillar candle when about two centimeters (2 cm) of wax remains.
● Extinguish a candle if the flame becomes too high or flickers repeatedly. Let the candle cool, trim the wick, and check for unwanted drafts and foreign material in the wax before re-lighting.

*Handwashing is recommended for all hand painted items for longevity.
Paper mache items are intended for decorative purposes only because of the material from which they are created. Use a clean soft slightly moist cloth to clean if necessary.
