Capturing a moment - a memory.

I flew from the nest to study architectural design at Kansas State University in 2005. In 2009 I had the amazing opportunity to study Renaissance ideals near Firenze/Florence in a tiny medieval town perched above the beautiful valleys of Tuscany, Italy. There in Castiglion Fiorentino, I met a dear and wise local artist, Gabriele Menci, for weekly watercolor classes. Gabriele spent the afternoon teaching my classmates and I a love of painting poppies, chickens, whimsical clouds, and the wondrous cypress tree.

After finishing my architecture degree in 2010 back in Kansas, I started Bleu Herron Designs. Now I spend my days wading through various creative pursuits: architectural design, cooking, gardening, acrylic and watercolor painting, textiles, furniture restoration, photography, jewelry, and paper crafts -inspired and delighted by the colors, flavors, and textures of the world.

what is Bleu Herron Designs?
It is a place to share my creations and delight in the moment of making something beautiful. I produce original artwork and giclee prints (created, printed, and hand matted by myself) as well as other handmade paper and fiber creations.

    I find joy in the play of light, texture, and colors of our world. A soul opening semester in Tuscany made all of the difference to my expression of them. These are my notes in pencil, pen, paintbrush, paper, and fiber.

Shipping
*August 2020 update- With changes at USPS, I have had customers that have experienced delays in the Priority Mail shipping, even though the order was shipped on time. If you have a strict deadline for receiving your item, please notify me when you order.

All orders are produced and packaged within a few days of purchase unless otherwise noted within the item's description. Look for the "Ready to ship in..." in the shipping info box in the description. Buyer will be notified through an Etsy Conversation if shipping on their item is delayed in any way. Each item is gift wrapped with care in recyclable and reusable materials including gift wrap of your choice, ribbon or string, and any other protection it may need.

All current shipping prices are set by USPS Priority Mail Rates, a very fast, safe, and easy method that now includes a tracking service. Please request if you would like any additional shipping services, including: added insurance, upgrades for faster shipping, or if you would prefer First Class shipping for a smaller cost.

For international orders, please note that the international shipping rate is USPS First Class Package rate, NOT Priority Mail. If you would prefer to receive your item more quickly, let me know and I can create a listing with your prefered shipping.
Additional policies and FAQs
All items are handmade and may vary in size or color slightly. Most items are printed and wrapped when ordered so that a wider variety of sizes and formats are available. Due to variations between different monitor's color calibration, images of items may appear slightly different from screen to screen.

All prints are printed to exact size. For example a 5x7inch print will be a full image of exactly 5 inches by 7 inches. Some commercially cut matting has an opening of less than the full size of the image, so that it covers the outer 1/8 inch or so of the print, making it so that part of the image is lost under matting.
All prints are shipped with at least a 1/8 inch border to assist the customer in matting the piece. Some of the white (unprinted) borders are larger, but all are at least 1/8 inch. Please let me know if you would like it trimmed any other way during checkout.

If your order is meant as a gift to someone other than the buyer, please let me know so that I can include a special note from you to the recipient!

If you would like a personalized set of art stationery, Thank You cards, or Holiday Greeting cards, please contact me with some ideas, I would love to help.

I encourage anyone who might be interested to ask for custom paintings created from their own photographs. I find that a painting made from a photo of a favorite vacation, family home, wedding celebration, or of a pet photo can have much more depth and feeling than a printed photograph. -Prices are based on time spent and materials used. Please contact me with some ideas and I will be more than happy to help you out.
