My Story

My husband and I were married for 30 years. Much of that time he was sick with leukemia so I spent a lot of time in hospitals. Fortunately, he survived for a long time with treatments that were experimental and costly. We had 2 children and while he supported us very well when he wasn’t ill, I had to take up that task when he got sick. When I wasn’t working, I pursued my art. Sometimes we would read and discuss poetry together. Those were some of our best moments. During hospital visits, I would bring my watercolors along and paint while he was sleeping. There was a support group in the hospitals and we exchanged about our experiences. That is when I discovered that patients and their caregivers felt they were helped just by seeing my watercolors, reading poetry together and sharing inspirational quotes.

We became friends.

I realized that the images inspired by poetry and quotes evoked a human response that penetrated our most profound feelings. That was the beginning of my love affair with this medium of expression. I began my shop Enlightenedheart. Before the pandemic, my work from Enlightenedheart is was on display at the New York Public Library in Staten Island and Manhattan.
My other artwork in sculpture, video, animation and oils can be seen on my website www.sueburickson.com.

Returns and exchange details
I value you as a customer and want you to have a fabulous experience purchasing from me. Because of this I check your items closely before shipping, including taking a picture of the item immediately before shipping for my protection. If there is any discrepancy between the listing and condition of the product before shipping I will contact you before shipping to offer options of any potential partial or full refund.

I make every effort to protect your product during shipping, but if an item arrives in poor shape it is due to shipping hazards beyond my control. I am not responsible for any damage that occurs during shipping. If you are concerned I recommend that you arrange for shipping insurance by contacting me prior to purchasing an item. There is no blanket refund policy.

If there is a delay or expectation of delay in shipping your item (more than 2 business days from receipt of payment), I will contact you as soon as possible to offer you 3 options: full refund and cancellation of the order, full refund of the shipping cost, or free upgraded shipping (where available). Once I have your response I will proceed with the order as you have specified.
The buyer pays for shipping on all returns. Returned items are eligible for a refund only if they are received unused and in good condition.
Please contact me if you have a problem with your order.
I currently accept Paypal and credit cards. You can also pay with a credit card through Paypal and you don't have to be a Paypal member to do it.
My aim is to ship to you as quickly as possible, but you will have to wait no longer than 3 business days. We hate waiting for the "Your item has shipped!" email as much as you do! If possible we ship on the same day as you place your order. We take every precaution to make sure that your item arrives in excellent condition, but we cannot take responsibility for what happens during the shipping process.

All items are sent from the New York, so it should take 1-3 days to ship to the East Coast, 2-4 days to the Midwest, and 3-7 days to the West Coast. If you would like faster shipping or extra shipping services (such as insurance or tracking), please contact me before placing an order so that we can set up those options for you before submitting your purchase. Please be aware that some extra shipping options will cost extra.

I do not currently ship internationally.
