About

painter realizes people "get" her paintings

I've always wanted to paint, to make puppets, to make clay figures, to draw, to make art in any way I could.
It wasn't until a few years ago when I launched my website (now making websites is also a new hobby) I realized people actually were interested in the artwork I was creating. People seemed to find me on the web (not an easy task!) and asked for artwork out of the blue, which pleased and shocked me.

I don't limit myself in my subject matter; people, places, ideas, all are fair game if I find them inspiring. But I notice that I come back to paint flowers over and over again. I don't do it on purpose, but I find myself drawn to the language of flowers, their lore, their melancholy, their romance.
After I sold a floral painting at a local venue, my customer said, "that flower spoke to me like it had a different story to tell, I was drawn to it because of its moodiness." I always thought that my paintings didn't fit wit the typical florals because they had a darker mood, but I realized there were other people out there, who much like I, were drawn to beauty and rich color and texture, but also to the story my paintings were hinting at.

    I've always known that I wanted to be an artist. Well, an artist, or a scientist. I have a deep interest in social anthropology and biology, and some of that is reflected in my art. My inspiration is Nature, the world around us, and hidden beauty.

I believe art doesn't just belong in museums and galleries but art is something that should brighten all of our lives, whether we're famous collectors or secret art lovers. I hope my artwork brightens your life, even if just a little bit.

Shipping
DOMESTIC SHIPPING - I ship items through the USPS using Priority Mail. Typically you can expect your package within 5-10 business days. If you would like to have your package handling expedited or shipped through Express mail, please send me an e-mail and I will do my best to accommodate you. I can bill you for additional shipping costs through Paypal if needed.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING - I am happy to ship my items overseas. Please specify if you'd like to have your items shipped by International Priority Shipping because with this shipping method additional costs MAY apply, depending on destination country. Shipping methods:
-International First Class Shipping is cheaper, but there isn't a way to track or locate a lost or delayed International First Class Shipping package. I use this method by default.
-International Priority Shipping is much more expensive but does offer extra services. You can track your package online. Please specify if you'd like me to use this method.

If an internationally shipped package is lost or delayed I cannot be responsible for items or shipping costs. Once the Post Office has taken the package, it is out of my hands. I apologize for this, but I must make this a policy.
However, I have not had any packages lost in shipping overseas in the last 10 years. Either it's great luck or the Postal Services have greatly improved.

PACKAGING - I use recycled packaging supplies as much as I can. Because most of my items are flat works of art, packaging is extremely important. I might overdo it in some instances, but it is to ensure that the paintings are intact when they arrive. To reduce on the amount of paper used I do not add lots of promotional materials to your package. I hope my work speaks for itself.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are not satisfied with an item, send me an email, I'll arrange for return and I will refund your money. It is as simple as that.
