Announcement    All portrait orders come with a full-size digital copy of your order. If you have any issues at all with your portrait please contact me before opening a claim, I always try to make it right.

I also keep all files for all orders indefinitely so if anything should ever happen to the original just let us know.

★★★ PROCESSING TIME ★★★
Processing is 5-7 business days once I start painting, for most portraits. Portraits that require editing take additional time.

★★★ TEXT ME DIRECTLY ★★★
Have a question? Text Danielle directly 314-225-5881 (include your name and order number if applicable). I do not reply after 9 PM CST.

★★★ SHIPPING NOTIFICATION BUT NO PROOF? ★★★
If you have not received a proof, your order has not shipped. I schedule labels to print the day I expect to mail.

★★★ SEND PHOTOS ★★★
Text 314-225-5881 OR info [!at] favreaus.com OR via Etsy Convo. Include the name and order number.

★★★ PHOTO EDITS - COMBINE PHOTOS ★★★
You can have any number of people in your portrait. I can combine photos, add the appropriate edit package AND the portrait listing: https://etsy.me/36BsasY

★★★ PROOFS & MAILING LABELS ★★★
I send proofs the same day or day before shipping. If you do not reply by the deadline in the msg I will ship what I sent. If, however, you have any issues with what I sent, just contact me and I will fix it and make sure you get a new copy.

If you have not received a proof, your order has not shipped.

★★★ DISCOUNT CODES ★★★

F10OFF60 - 10% off $60+
15OFF3TO5 - 15% off 3-5 Prints (all purchased in the same order)
20OFF6TO10 - 20% off 6-10 Prints (all purchased in the same order)
25OFF11TO20 - 25% off 11-20 Prints (all purchased in the same order)
30OFF21PLUS - 20% off 21+ Prints (all purchased in the same order)

Military discount available. Send me a photo of the top left corner of your CAC or military ID. Family IDs count. First responder discounts are also available. Contact me.

★★★ DAMAGED IN THE MAIL? ★★★
If your print arrives damaged just contact me and I'll ship out a new one - send me photos of the damaged print and packaging so I can file a claim with the post office and alter my packaging methods. If you need it urgently I can send it directly to a Walgreens near you for printing so you can pick it up in person, or you can use the digital version to print yourself. I try to package in the way the post office recommends for prints, but sometimes there is an unscrupulous mail carrier who bends the print and damages it. I will replace them for any domestic US order at no charge.

★★★ SHIPPING OVERAGES ★★★
On items that require shipping, I refund shipping overages so if the shipping cost seems high I will refund anything over what I pay.

Note: Any discounts given do not apply to shipping.

★★★ WHEN WILL I GET MY ORDER? ★★★
All of our orders are custom orders and are created on-demand to match your requirements. Digitally produced orders will generally be customized within 5-10 business days and sent via conversation to you for approval (if applicable), we include an approval deadline, then we ship.

Our more intricate hand-painted pieces can take anywhere from 1-2 weeks to create as they do not use my software, instead, I create them brush-stroke by brush-stroke. Still digital, to allow for proper enhancement and enlargement when requested, but done meticulously one tiny piece at a time.

Acrylic paintings are painted on canvas and are not digital and take from 2-6 weeks.

For shipping, we cannot control the actual shipping time, however, we mail all of our work with tracking.

★★★ LOWEST SHIPPING COST / SHIPPING REFUNDS ★★★
Most prints include free shipping for the domestic US.

Canada and foreign shipping are often calculated much higher on here but we will refund overages for ALL shipping (US and international) if it's $1 or more over what I paid. So if you pay $25 in shipping and it costs me $8 to mail it, I refund $17. Conversely, if shipping is more than Etsy lists I will invoice you for the additional shipping costs. If we forget to credit your shipping don't hesitate to remind us.

If you have concerns, contact me with the list of items you want and I will create a custom order with exact shipping for you.

★★★ INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING AND CUSTOMS ★★★
We are NOT responsible for a package once it leaves the US. If we provide you with tracking and the item is stuck in customs we will not ship out a replacement as we cannot guarantee it won't also get stuck in customs. If your package is in customs please contact your local shipping authority and check on the status with them before contacting us. We will ask you for your case number so we can follow up on the item as well. Note that only one case can be opened per item. If we purchased insurance on the package we will open the case as we are the recipient of the insurance money (in order to allow us to replace your package).

You are 100% responsible for all customs, import, and duty fees. We are not responsible for any fees. If you do not pay the fees and your package is force returned to us we will only refund your purchase minus shipping once we receive the package.

★★★ INSURANCE ★★★
Our first-class packages are NOT mailed with insurance as that would be very cost-prohibitive. If you want insurance on your package it will ship priority and we will do that and will invoice you for the additional shipping and insurance. Cost is generally $6-20 for domestic US parcels and $25-48 for international parcels. You MUST contact us first to arrange for insured packages.

Note that we may insure certain packages based on the value at our own cost (generally any package over $100).

★★★ RETURNS / REFUNDS ★★★
Custom products, which include all portraits, are NOT returnable. You are paying for the time to paint your portrait. No refunds are permitted on these products as you receive a digital version and the time is already invested by the time you receive the product. You are also provided with a proof and if you have any issues with it you must notify me in order for me to make a correction. If I don't know what the problem is, I can't fix it. Please reach out before opening a case, I am willing to work with you to make you what you want, but I have to know what you want to make that happen.

On Etsy since 2009

I make your memories into things you can hold.

I was raised with a very artistic mother who encouraged me to explore all aspects of art, and so I did. Little did I know that art would remain the core of my life into adulthood. It's my pleasure to help you bring your memories to life through art.

I was fortunate enough to marry a fantastic wood worker and together we made the decision to purchase a laser and a CNC. Since then we've been coming up with new ways to use them and create tangible art from your memories.

I've been an artist for as long as I can remember. From winning watercolor art awards in high school (I did a tondo painting of a baby being birthed by the earth) to turning down an art scholarship to the Emily Carr university in BC Canada. I took up large greyscale portraiture around 25 years ago, you can see some of that at discretionstudios.com, and did sculpture for many years, then was a tattoo artist for a while, and did a ton of pen and ink work (also at the link above), and then ventured into watercolors.

As a computer programmer I created a program that would allow me to use my own brush strokes to paint portraits faster and digitally - still done stroke by stroke - but faster and at a much higher resolution. This allows me to share my gift with more people while producing art that I can do at a reasonable and manageable size to work with but can be reproduced as large as 24" x 36". The benefit of the work I do is that I can create your portrait in such a way that even if you order a 5x7, you can come back and order a 13x19 and it will only take me a short amount of time to create your larger version, without losing any detail.

It would be my pleasure to work with you to create an amazing heirloom memory.

Welcome to my studio, it is an absolute pleasure to work with you to help you create a tangible memory that brings beauty into your life.

I have a unique perspective on memory, I was in a terrible accident when I was 12 and have anterograde and retrograde amnesia as a result. Because of that, I do everything I can to preserve and honor my memories.

I’ve found that art brings me many outlets to use that enable me to create new lasting memories that both commemorate and honor my memories. Be they a house I grew up in, a person who had a strong impact on my life, a business I frequented as a child, or even a childhood pet.

There are so many memories that we make every day and it is my absolute pleasure and honor to work with you to turn those memories into real tangible gems to bring a smile into your day each time you see them.

I will work with you to find the absolute best option for your art and I hope you will fall in love all over again when you hold it in your hands.

Thank you for allowing me into your life to help capture a moment.

If you do not specify insurance, and pay the additional insurance fees, I have the right to secure the package with insurance for the full amount of the item being shipped (even if you used a discount code). If the item is lost or damaged the insurance payout will be paid directly to me as the shipper and I will either refund your monies or make you a new product as close as possible to the original at my discretion.
