About

I paint animals because animals make me happy

I started this shop 6 years ago just to see what would happen. At that time I was unhappily working as a freelance pattern drafter because I still didn't think it was possible to make a living as an artist (really, who does!?) Luckily the shop has grown and so has my excitement about it all.

Unlike many artists who seem to have been born with a paint brush in their hand, the first time I seriously picked up a brush was in Fashion School where I learned how to illustrate. It was illustration, not fashion, that stole my heart.

I find inspiration in all types of animals but the ones who inspire me the most are the ones who keep me company all day (3 spoiled cats, 1 spoiled dog).

Additional policies and FAQs
PRINTS:
All of my PRINTS are printed on archival quality textured, matte fine art paper using pigment inks. I work very hard to ensure that my prints look very much like original watercolours.

Every print comes signed, dated and titled on the back.

I DO NOT included mats or frames with purchase. All of my prints and originals are standard sizes so framing is easy. Choose a frame that best suits your decor at any home decor, photography, art or home improvement store etc.

Custom and wholesale orders are always welcome. Convo me for more details.
Privacy
The only personal customer details that I have access to are those the customer themselves supply to Etsy to complete an order such as name, email and address. I am only given enough information to complete your order and will never share this data with a 3rd party. Under Canadian Income Tax law I am required to keep data pertaining to my company's sales for 7 years. All information will be destroyed after this date.

If you have any concerns or questions about how I use your private information please contact me through Etsy's messaging system or directly by email: deidrewicks [!at] yahoo.ca.
