Welcome to Arden's Miscellany! It is a privilege to be able to make my dream of being a career artist a reality, and I sincerely thank you for any purchases you make.

For inspiration, I draw from my intense love of history, mythology, literature, my own off-kilter dreams, and my beloved circle of friends. My goal for my work is for it to touch the viewer, be it evoking a smile, a tear, disgust, or a new emotion altogether. My favorite pieces are the ones that do just that, and it is a joy to be able to share them as prints.

Anything and everything you will receive will have been assembled by my hands and is my own work. A great deal of time, love, and (sometimes) literal blood and tears goes into my art; I ask that my buyers respect that and the occasional paranoia that goes with it.

***All artwork is the property of the artist and is not to be reproduced, appropriated, disseminated, or otherwise utilized without my express written permission. I maintain the rights to all images; the purchase of an original painting DOES NOT include the rights to said image. Paintings and prints are not to be rescanned, resubmitted, or reproduced in any way by any party other than myself, the artist. Legal action will be taken against any who do not respect my rights to and ownership of my own work. ***

The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:

Returns and exchange details
I am not responsible for items damaged in transit. That said, I'm also not heartless, so do contact me in case the problem in question is an easy and reasonable fix. Buyers are encouraged to send photos of any damaged items and their packaging to verify both the degree of and, if possible, the cause of said damage. I am an incredibly careful, mindful packer and have had boxes survive renegade forklifts, so proof will be required before I decide what I can and cannot help with.

Should an original painting be damaged in transit, I will require photos of the piece. If repair is possible and desired by the buyer, I will request the return of the painting, and mend the damage to the best of my abilities. The buyer will pay shipping both ways. Should the buyer wish for other arrangements, they will be decided on a case-by-case basis.

To protect against re-sale and possible fraud, all damaged originals must be returned to me before any discussed arrangements are honored. A great deal of time, love, and (sometimes) literal blood and tears goes into my art; I ask that my buyers respect that and the occasional paranoia that goes with it.
Payment
I accept PayPal and credit cards via Etsy. For non-Etsy transactions, I likewise prefer PayPal, but I also accept money orders and personal checks in USD. I will wait for the latter to clear before shipping any purchased items.

If you want something from my site http://www.ardenellennixon.com/ that isn't listed, you are welcome to contact me so that I can make said item(s) available on Etsy. I am happy to set up payment plans for more expensive items, for which a down-payment is required. Once said payment is received, the piece will be marked on my website as "sale pending"; nothing is shipped or marked as "sold" until paid for in full.

Please note, scammers, spammers, and foreign princes need not apply, as I will not accept monies for more than the amount required by the purchase or that involve unknown third parties. Any such monies paid to my PayPal account will be refunded, but not otherwise touched.
Shipping
All items ship within 1-2 business days, except when I am out of town to show my art at sci-fi/fantasy conventions. Any Etsy purchases made during these absences will be shipped within 1-2 business days of my return. My current con and the dates thereof are always noted beneath my storefront's banner.

To keep costs down and the environment happy, I reuse shipping supplies whenever possible. Thus, your package may not be pretty, but it will be well-packed and protected. All items are shipped first class mail unless otherwise requested by the purchaser, with shipping costs adjusted accordingly. All original artwork is insured for the full value, and all buyers will be notified of the expected arrival dates. (FYI if you have severe pet allergies, I do have a cat. He is NOT allowed in the studio, but that doesn't always prevent his fur from tagging along despite my best efforts.)

If your purchase is time-sensitive (birthday gift, Christmas, etc.), please note it in your buyer's comments and adjust your shipping costs accordingly. I am happy to upgrade shipping per request, but not at my own expense. Buyers are advised to purchase gifts at least a week in advance of their required date, particularly for holidays when heavy postal volume results in slower delivery overall.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am happy to take commissions or to discuss the sale of originals and/or prints that are available on my website http://www.ardenellennixon.com/ and my Etsy shop. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you may have regarding what is or isn't available.
