On Etsy since 2006

Follow your Heart...

After taking a break from working in the cosmetic industry for a number of years, I began to reassess what mattered to me most, getting in touch with my true in the hopes of trying to recapture when I felt most alive, I bought some canvases, paints and brushes and started to create, something I hadn't done in years! There's a saying, "art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time". I became so immersed in the creative process that before I knew it, one piece led to another piece until we had no more room on our walls to display my works!

After selling a few pieces to friends and family I decided to approach some local boutiques who agreed to sell my artwork. I was very excited about this new creative journey and started researching online and connecting with other artists, when I came across etsy. That was back in 2006 when I first set up my etsy shop, and it opened up a whole new world for me! Etsy was life changing!!

I now have people from literally all over the world who have purchased my Cindy G creations. It's a strange but wonderful thing that there are people out there, near & far, who I have never met in person, who have a small piece of me in their home!

I am inspired by many 7 yr old daughter, family, friends, music, colours, faces, poetry, art, my dreams, fashion, photography and the places that I've traveled to. I am lucky to live in such a beautiful city such as Vancouver BC. I am surrounded by ocean, mountains and lush landscapes, which is a great source of inspiration for me.

Vintage images and timeless icons such as Audrey Hepburn and various images from my vast collection of rare, foreign fashion magazines, along with ephemera of collected old documents, are often combined in my work. The end result is a creation which tells a story, a beautiful dichotomy of old and new.

I often incorporate glamorous elements such as Swarovski crystals, gold leaf, metallic & opalescent paints in my work. So whether I am setting the table for a special dinner for family and friends, or creating a new art piece, I always leave my special mark with a bit of whimsy, style, and a touch of sparkle!

I have met some wonderfully talented and inspiring people along the way and I am constantly learning and evolving as an artist. I am just following my heart, and I can't wait to see where this beautiful artistic journey will take me next...

Returns and exchanges
If you look at my Feedback, you will notice that all of my customers have been more than happy with their purchases. I don't expect any problems; however, please be understanding if circumstances which are out of my control possibly occur (damage or loss due to postal service negligence). If your piece arrives damaged, please let me know ASAP and please ship piece back to me and/or email picture of damage. Once I receive proof of damaged item, I will exchange your piece for another of equal or lesser value (the difference will be put back into your paypal account). If your item does not arrive at all, please contact me ASAP so we can work out an alternative.

Please note that I take high quality, precise pictures from various angles of all of my work, so there shouldn't be any surprises...if anything, your purchase will look better in person than the photo! Please look at pictures carefully, and if you are unsure, please request further images of the piece you are interested in, and I would be more than happy to email you additional pictures before making your purchase.

If you are unhappy with your piece, please contact me AS SOON AS YOU RECEIVE your item so we can work something out within reason, as I do want to ensure you are happy with your purchase.
I accept Paypal and Money Orders. Please ensure you follow all steps of Paypal payment when checking out and ensure that payment is made within 2 days of purchase, if I don't hear from you in that time, your order will be cancelled. If you're having problems with Paypal's checkout process, please do not hesitate to contact me so I can help you out! If paying by Money Order, please ensure I receive payment within 7 business days. If money order does not arrive or does not clear in that time, your order will be cancelled.
I take a lot of care in wrapping and shipping my collages. I will often ship the same day payment is received. I ship worldwide from Canada using Canada Post (Air Mail) which usually takes 7-10 days for arrival depending on your area. If you want your piece to arrive approx 3-5 days with Expedited Mail with a mail confirmation and tracking, please let me know so I can adjust your invoice with the appropriate added charges to your shipping fee. If the listed shipping fee actually works out to be less than stated, a refund will be issued accordingly.

Is your purchase a gift? Please let me know and I would be more than happy to add a little personal note and a little extra touch to wrapping at no extra charge!
Additional policies and FAQs
COMMISSION WORK: I love doing CUSTOM ORDERS! It would be my pleasure to work with your personal family photos or favourite images and create something new and beautiful out of them!

Do you see something you like but wish to have it in another size or colour? Just contact me and I'll make something just for you!!

Price will vary depending on size, materials used, time and how elaborate you wish your piece to be. Sizes are below, with an APPROX price (shipping not included). **If unforseen extra materials or time is needed during the creative process to finish your piece, this will be explained to you firstly and the final price will reflect those extra costs.

Almost any size is possible, just let me know what you wish!


8x8 inch=approx $200
10x10 inch=approx $250
12x12 inch= approx $350

Please note that the price in full must be paid before starting any commissioned piece. I will be in close contact with you during the creative process, to ensure we are on the same wavelength...or you may choose to be totally surprised until the very end!

If I'm creating a piece with your own personal photos, I just require a high resolution picture(s) emailed to me with specifics (colour, theme, and any other info you think is important)...the rest is up to me, where I will create something dazzling and unique to your own tastes and desires! Depending on schedule and personal requests, please allow on average up to 3 weeks (usually less) for your piece to be ready.

I am always open to WHOLESALE & CONSIGNMENT arrangements. Please contact me at anytime to discuss further.
