 All 8x10 prints are shipped unmatted in 9x12 cardboard mailers to prevent bending. 11x14 prints and larger are shipped in cardboard tubes and are also unmatted. Original paintings and canvas prints 11x14 are shipped in a standard sized Priority Mail box through USPS. Any original paintings or giclee prints on canvas larger than 11x14 are through UPS.

Additional policies and FAQs
Frequently Asked Questions:

Question: Are your paintings made on a computer? 

No. My art is created traditionally from beginning to end. They are lovingly painted by hand in vivid color with brushes and acrylic paint. Sometimes I will use different mediums such as sand or modeling paste.

Question: Where did you learn how to paint like this?

 I am self taught. I started painting in 2011.
Question: What inspires you?

I see beauty everywhere I look. The natural world, animals, people, art, music, and literature all inspire me.
Question: Why do you choose such crazy colors? 

Color has always been fascinating to me. Rainbows are my favorite! I believe in color, more than anything! So I choose vivid color to express the happy, goofy, soulful and vibrant personalities in animals and the moods in landscapes.
Question: What is a Giclee print? Prints are reproductions of actual paintings, they aren't original artworks themselves. I sell two types of prints. One is a giclee canvas print on Fredrix Archival Canvas that is made in the U.S.A. The other is a giclee paper print on 285 pound water color paper that is acid and lignin free. All prints are made from Epson Ink. The ultra chrome ink is guaranteed for life. Some Canvas prints that I make have embellishments and have a textured varnish. All prints are personally signed by me.
Question: Why is the cost of an original work of art more expensive than a print?
When you buy a print from anyone, you are buying a picture of a painting. The painting itself is much more valuable and took much more time and effort to create. It is unreasonable to ask an artist to create an original painting for the same amount that you would expect to pay for a print
