Lucia and I discussed what I would like and she produced a wonderful sketch and together we agreed on adjustments here and there. The final result is truly a thing of beauty. I gazed with awe as I saw the rug spread on my floor. It's an absolute work of art. I love it.

Lucia, I just received my floor cloth and it is absolutely beautiful! You did such a wonderful job and it look awesome in my kitchen! Thank you so much for designing it exactly as I requested and it was such a pleasure working with you! Sincerely, Donna
Accepted payment methods
Payment in full is due prior to painting a piece or shipping a piece already painted. Please, if you'd like the item painted, then I will need to have the payment in advance. I'm happy to answer any questions you may have concerning any possible orders, but won't begin painting until I'm sure you want the item.
Communication during the initial request for a custom piece is key to a successful design that you're happy with. If you'd like to visualize the design artwork for an item that I've never painted before than I'd be happy to do a small color sketch so we can work out the design together prior to the project. However I do require a design fee up front plus any revisions you may request. I'm an experienced artist but not so good with mind reading. The more I have from you (ideas, color choices, fabric, paint chips) the better. Take a good look at work I've already done and pick out design elements that you like most, colors you want and/or subject matter. This saves much time and possible creative misunderstandings. I will do my best to interpret your wishes into that lasting work of art you'll love. If you trust my judgement and don't need to see the design ahead of time then you save time and therefore money, however, my vision may be somewhat different than yours, or not. Either way, I will strive to create a work that you will be satisfied with, and will finish it in such a way that it will last. Photos of the finished piece will be sent prior to shipping.
I charge for shipping and handling. Handling means, I have to purchase the boxes and shipping materials, pack and take the item to be shipped. Occassionally I will use recycled product to save costs and environment.
I offer shipping only within the continental US at this time. I'm not dealing with small flat items so shipping gets more complicated and prefer to keep my little business streamlined.
Once in a while I might ship via the Post Office if it seems too costly to ship an item with UPS (far more than what you paid for the shipping) but I would get your approval first and I would only do that via priority mail with insurance.
Refunds and Exchanges
If an item is shipped but gets lost or stolen then we have to go through the process of making a claim which can take some time depending on the shipping co. Once I ship something and it's been insured, it's out of my control. However, because the item is insured, the costs can be recovered, the item can be repainted or you can be refunded if you so choose. Please trust I will do what I can on my end to get your item to you or reconcile any problems with shipments. Communication is key. Thanks for trusting me with your art orders and business.
Additional policies and FAQs
I will send photos of custom orders prior to shipping for final approval. Non personalized items that I would be able to resell to another might be considered for a return if you aren't completely satisfied, but the cost of shipping, and materials would be subtracted from a custom order that is returned. My goal is that you be completely satisfied with your purchase and I will do all that I can to make this happen.
