Art Meets Life

Hello! If you've made it to this part of my shop, I suppose you'd like to know a bit more about my art, and myself. First off, I have a degree in fine art, but have worked as a biologist (wildlife and botany) for most of my adult life. Allot of my personal work is inspired by the places, plants, and wildlife that I've encountered over the years. For example, you'll see alot of marine life in my store, that's because for years, I worked with sea turtles on the Gulf Coast, and grew a passion for marine ecosystems. You'll also see works that are inspired by the desert, because I'm in love with the Sonoran and Mojave deserts. Canyons are a common theme, because I was raised in northern Arizona, home of the Grand Canyon, and I now live in the center of the Colorado Plateau, the heart of canyon country, where my focus is all aspects of botany out here.

The art you see in this shop was produced using a mix of mediums. Some are painting, some are drawings, some are a mix of both, but nearly all were created using a digital platform such as Adobe Fresco and ProCreate. I've also done some image salvage, taking very old illustrations from book and sources such as the British Library, and giving them new life. This is mostly done using an iPad to repair damage, hand color/recolor, refine lines, and make each antique image shine again in it's own way.

I partner with printing companies that put my pieces on high quality products. My work is only printed when someone orders it, reducing waste, and making each item a little more special than what you'd find at a bix box store since it's one of very few, instead of one of several thousand. I've been doing my research to find blank manufacturers that also make sustainability and safe work practices their priority, Bella+Canvas is among those that have made the grade, and most of my t-shirt designs are on their blanks, those that are not, I'm working on redesigning to be moved to B+C blanks. Thank you again for visiting, and I hope you enjoy what you see here!

Returns and exchange details
I want you to be happy with your order and I'll do my best to make sure you are.

Returns & Refunds:
Notify me within 7 days of receiving your order if you want to return an item. Please contact me before sending it back to me.

I accept returns on most apparel, but not on leggings or other intimate items. This is due to their intimate to the body nature, and the inherent health risks associated with that.

If you decide to return something:

1. Pack it safely for transit.
2. You will be responsible for paying return shipping.
3. A refund for the original purchase price (excluding shipping) will only be issued once I have the item back in hand.

Damaged Items:
If an item is damaged during shipment, please take detailed photos to send me, and let me know within 24hrs of arrival so I can remedy the situation.

I do not accept returns for items damaged after delivery. So keep things safe from pets, kids, weather, curious housemates, etc.
Payment
It's pretty much like any store, please pay when you put in your order.
Shipping
Please see the banner above for the latest information on shipping times. Due to the disruptions that COVID-19 have caused, some items can take up to 6 weeks to arrive. All items once shipped, will be shipped via USPS.

I work with partners to produce my designs on t-shirts, mugs, etc. This means that sometimes a purchase of more than one item will arrive as more than one package.

Except for original prints and paintings, most order tracking will show an origination other than Page Arizona. This is because while I design everything, I work with others to get those designs professionally printed.
Additional policies and FAQs
I'm involved with every part of the design process with these products. Everything you see is my own art, or vintage illustration that I cleaned up by hand, and made ready to be put onto items. What you see in this shop is the products of hundreds of hours of my own design work. But I partner with a print company to get my work on all the items you see on here. Because of that, you may see on the shipping label, an address in Los Angeles, Detroit, or Charlotte NC. While I may not be the one printing the items, I am the designer, which is why I'm selling here on Etsy.

I'm absolutely open to custom orders. PM me and let's talk!

Want me to wholesale to you? Sounds interesting, lets talk!

I do not do consignment.
Privacy
I'll only use your information to get your stuff to you. I will not sell or share any information from anyone who shops at my store.
