Beautifully hand made and fine quality. I've used it for watercolor journaling and the paper is excellent for water media. Hope to fill it up and buy another one!

About

I do love to be here.

Artist Statement:

I use ethereal watercolours and stylized images of flora and fauna to capture temporary thoughts and heavy emotions. Each subject is very personal, yet familiar enough that the viewer sees in it what he or she wants to see. Other media assist in adding luxurious visual & tactile interest: layers of torn paper, "3D" details that pop out from the image, and organic patterns traced with thick gel medium. Light reflects off of iridescent spray ink, paint soaks into paper, and stitched threads entice me to run my fingers over them. I wish to transform daily experiences and negative emotions into a visual banquet of colours and textures. To offset life's darkness, we must create beauty.

About Me:

Melissa Peacock is an emerging artist who combines watercolour and other media to reflect the beauty in the world around her. She often uses saturated colour and imagery of flora and fauna in a whimsical contemporary style.

As an emerging artist of Surrey, BC, her work can often be found in juried exhibitions within the city, in her favourite local galleries run by the Surrey Arts Council. Her artwork is most commonly purchased online and sent to loving homes across North America.

Melissa studied at Kwantlen University College, focusing on studio arts and colour theory, but left the school in 2010 to play with cakes and cookies at Vancouver Community College.

Melissa was born and raised in Surrey, surrounded by amazing artists and just a stone's throw away from the city of Vancouver. She seldom imagines herself living anywhere else.

I believe that art should be accessible to everyone, and not exclusive to serious collectors and investors.

As someone who loves art, I find it difficult to find beautiful items at an affordable price. By working with smaller sizes, I wish to offer such an arrangement to you! I am offering smaller, unframed paintings on paper.

I want my art to be available to as many people as possible, so I am also offering small, vibrant photo reproductions.

If you are interested in my art but would prefer something more practical, I also have lovely 8x8" art journals in my shop! Each one is made by hand using Stonehenge multimedia paper, and uniquely decorated with my own artistic flourish. It's art you can actually put to use :)

Accepted payment methods

Payment
Paypal is preferred.

If you commit to buy, but no payment attempt takes place, the order will be cancelled after a week. If something comes up, by all means drop me a line! I'm a reasonable person. :)

Yes, I am open to the idea of a layaway plan. Send me a convo.
Shipping
Currently I am using standard Canada Post, and am able to ship within a day or two.

(Please keep in mind that your country may charge you a duty fee as your purchase goes through customs. I mark my parcels "merchandise" as law requires it.)

Local: 2-5 days
Within Canada: 4-10 days
To USA: 1-2 weeks
International: 2-3 weeks
(according to Canada Post website)

Feel free to contact me about emergency rushes, special instructions, address changes, etc through convo.

Q: Why is shipping so high on art journals?
A: Canada Post is expensive! I usually ship these using Small Packet Air. Unfortunately for fellow Canadians, Small Packet is not available to us and must be sent Parcel Post.
Refunds and Exchanges
I try to be as detailed as I can in product descriptions. With that in mind...

If it arrives damaged: Please let me know immediatly! Heartbreaking, but I know that canada post is not gentle with letters/packages. I will give the full refund, but I must ask that the damaged item be returned to me first :(

If item never arrives to you: I accept this as my problem and will take responsibility for it. Please wait through the delivery estimation (particularly during holidays) fully before making the claim. I will be keeping track.

For a change of heart: I cannot be held responsible for a sudden change of heart for an accurately described item. Please leave enough time for shipment and read descriptions thoroughly! I'm also not responsible for customs/import related fees. Feel free to refuse delivery or otherwise return an item for refund **less shipping fees in this case**
