Growing up I was always amazed by my grandmother's artistic ability. Her paintings are like a photograph, and I dreamed of one day making a masterpiece just like her. While I still do not possess a modicum of her talent, she has inspired me to express myself in my own style, with my own voice. This shop is, in part, dedicated to her and to all those that inspire others to open their mouths, pick up a paintbrush, scribble with a pen, and otherwise make their message heard.

This shop will only perform a refund if it is within 3 days of delivery and the item is damaged. If a refund is requested, please send a message explaining why.
This shop is proud to accept PayPal, Etsy gift cards, and credit card payments. If you would like to make another form of payment, such as Money Order or Personal Check, please message me. While I do not typically accept these payments, some exceptions can be made.
I ship USPS First Class whenever possible, as it is lower in cost than UPS or FedEx, and it can go to PO Boxes. If you would like a different shipping method, please message me, and we can work something out.

Also, I do ship internationally. Pricing is listed for each item. Again, it is shipped USPS First Class International. If you require a different method or faster shipping, please message me so I may adjust shipping costs accordingly.
