Love it! And extremely fast shipping! I love this style of painting...so if there's more like this at his store, I'll probably buy it!

About

Long time coming...

First let me say thank you. Thank you for joining me on this adventure of opening up my own shop and sharing my work with the world. ArtisanQ began as a vague idea in the summer of 2014 while I was working in Providence, RI. But I was in the middle of graduate school and rarely had enough time to paint, let alone run a shop. But I graduated from Syracuse in May '15 and in July '15 I moved to Burlington, Vermont for my first full time job at the University of Vermont. It's then that I finally made the time to set up shop.

The thing is I have been making things for quite some time. I was so fortunate that when I was young, the woman who looked after me was big into doing crafts with us and really that is where it all started. It started with those cheesy hand print turkeys at thanksgiving and making pinecone Christmas tree ornaments.

That passion has never left me. I was an honors art student in high school, I did a summer program at the Pennsylvania Academe of Fine Arts, one at the Moore College of Art and Design and at the Clay Studio in Philadelphia. Then came time to go to college and I ended up at Syracuse University in the School of Architecture. My favorite projects in college were always those that were hand drawn or hand crafted. I also used all my open electives to take studio art classes. So I have taken courses in painting, ceramics hand and wheel throwing, metal and jewelry work, printmaking, and woodshop furniture design. I refuse to use Microsoft Word to make 9 out of 10 documents, opting instead for Adobe InDesign and Illustrator. I believe in the philosophy that everything needs and deserves good design. I also believe that everyone is creative, people just need to find the right medium. While I have experimented in a whole slew of medium from digital to clay and wood, to paper, my favorites remain to be watercolor and ink.

My subject matter, which largely is influenced from my background in architecture, is urban landscapes and city architecture, but also includes travel drawings and nature landscapes. Occasionally, my work is also influenced by my own exploration of sexuality and gender.

Shipping
Your order will be shipped within 3-5 business days from receiving the purchase information. All orders are shipped via USPS.

Please double check your shipping addresses to make sure they are accurate. I are not responsible if orders are sent to a wrong address that is provided through Etsy and/or Paypal.

If you require faster shipping times or are outside of the United States, please let me know and we will provide updated shipping costs.

For orders shipped to destinations outside the U.S., duties and taxes, if imposed on your order, are due at the time of delivery. These charges are not calculated during checkout and are not collected by ArtisanQ. Since these fees differ greatly from country to country, consult your local customs office for more information and details about duties and taxes. The customer is responsible for all duties and taxes on their order.


When I send our products I will provide you with a tracking number to monitor the progress of your project as it makes its way to you. ArtisanQ is not responsible for any delay or damages incurred during shipping or mailing.
Refunds and Exchanges
All prints and original paintings may be returned within 7 days of receipt. If they are in usable condition, we will refund your money less shipping costs. We do not refund shipping either way for returns.

Sales of commissioned pieces are final. I will try to make sure you are completely happy (through photos) before the item is sent. No refunds given on commissioned paintings.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom Paintings require a $100 (non-refundable) deposit. Custom invitations as a digital print require a $50 (non-refundable) deposit and custom printed invitations require a $100 (non-refundable) deposit. The deposit must be made before any work will begin on the custom project. The deposit will be deducted from your final list price. Your remaining balance must be paid before the work will be shipped to you.

The pricing of a commissioned work varies on the size and scope of the project. Pricing is calculated via material and labor cost, in addition to shipping. If you have a specific budget, please be explicit so that I can adjust the size and/or scope to your needs.


Timeline:
For custom orders, please contact us as soon as possible about your request. The time it takes for custom work varies greatly depending on the scope of each project. I work with each client to come up with a schedule tailored to their needs. Typically a custom painting requires at the very minimum 2 weeks to complete, however if I am experiencing a high volume of commissioned works it could very well take longer (up to 6 weeks). I make every effort to be transparent about a realistic time line.

Requirements:
Requirements are the tangible details of what you want in your project. I work with you to provide the ideas for the project and it's our job to fulfill your requirements in the most compelling way. When we close the requirements stage and begin working on your project we cannot accept new requirements. Project completion is defined as us having fulfilled the requirements which we agreed upon.

Copyrights
When your final payment has cleared I’ll provide you with your print–ready, digital files, and/or send you any printed, or painted work we agree to.

I’ll own the copyright for all the items we create and the unique combination of the elements that constitutes a complete design and I’ll license that you, exclusively for that project only.

We love to show off our work and share what we’ve learned with other people, so we reserve the right, with your permission, to display your project (both during and after the project has been completed) as part of our portfolio and to write about it on websites, in magazine articles and in books.
