Announcement   I'm best known for my giant wombat art, but I also draw other native Australian animals and flowers, and turn these into pillowcases, velvet cushion covers, cards, softies, tea towels and bags (plus the occasional original painting).

I'm an illustration artist, painting away in my studio, tucked between the beach and the bush on the mid-north coast of NSW, Australia.

I create paintings for gallery exhibitions in Australia and the USA, often create unique commissions for special people who ask nicely, and have been selected to appear in the Curvey Annual twice (Curvey features the top female illustrators from around the world).

About

Illustrations that escape the page, landing on pillowcases, cushions and other soft places.

Hi, my name is Sarah, BUT... at the tender age of 9, a wild Scottish woman (a friend of my parents'), convinced me without a hint of a doubt that my "real" name was Alice Flossy Pumpernickel! Gullible? Sure! Nevertheless, flossy-p was born from that experience.

My nickname acted as a timestamp, capturing the childlike qualities of that time in our lives when reality and imagination blend together, a time when you're aware of style but not limited by it, a time before self-criticism, and when joy, adventure and nurture are utmost. These qualities, often subconsciously, find their way into my illustrations.

A while back I moved from an inner city terrace to a small regional town up the coast of Northern NSW in Australia. Our house backs onto a meandering creek in a bushy koala reserve, sits at the foot of some dramatic hills, and is soothed by a beachy breeze.

Since this sea-change my art almost always features nature of some sort. I create pencil drawings and watercolour paintings, often featuring native Australian flowers, plants and animals, and the communion between people and nature.

When I came close to running out of wall space myself, I started looking for other places for images to live. Soon my art moved onto cards, pillowcases, softies, and cushions. These are the items you can find in my Etsy store.

Since having my son a few years ago, and my daughter only months ago, I have enlisted the help of some very fine ladies. I work at home (when my children are asleep, that is) as an illustration artist. I am represented by two greeting card publishers, and have twice had my work published in "Curvy" a collection of top female illustrators from around the world. But the projects I enjoy the most are the personal family commissions people ask me to create especially for them.

    My artwork skips merrily across the boundaries of reality and back again, often featuring Australian native flora and fauna, reminiscent of a hot-weathered childhood.

Shipping
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Shipping costs are calculated automatically. If you buy two or more items, these additional shipping costs are also calculated automatically. Sometimes the shipping can be combined, but often it will be more (as I need to pay more when extra weight is added).

Postage to Australia is generally 3-7 days. Postage to other countries is generally 2 to 3 weeks (although in the lead up to Christmas it is considerably longer, and larger parcels can also take a bit longer too). Please note that it is the customer's responsibility to provide the correct mailing address. I use the address that appears on your Etsy profile, not your PayPal account.

I try to charge as little as I can for postage, but I do make sure it's always airmail. Insurance can be expensive, but if you would feel more secure with insurance, or if you need express post, please feel free to ask and I'll let you know how much extra it will be.

Please note I am only able to get to the post office twice a week. All of my items state they will be ready to ship in 3-5 business days, shipping time is added to that.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS:
I have no control (and little knowledge) of the customs taxes or VAT charges that parcels incur when they enter your country. If you think these fees may apply to you, please check with your post office prior to ordering. If you intend to ship a gift directly to a recipient who lives overseas (i.e. not in Australia), be aware that they may need to pay these charges upon collecting their parcel.

I am required to fill out a customs declaration slip, and stick it to the front of international parcels. On this slip I have to declare the contents, and the value in $AUD. I am also required check the "merchandise" box, I am not able to check the "gift" box, as I am well known to the post office staff, and would face hefty fines.

LOCAL PICK-UP.
If you live close by (Coffs Harbour, NSW, Australia), and would like to avoid paying for shipping, then why not pop by and pick your parcel up? Using the discount code "PICKUP2450" will remove the shipping charges from your order. You will need to message me to organise pick-up.

CHRISTMAS SHIPPING:
PLEASE NOTE THAT SHIPPING IN THE LEAD UP TO CHRISTMAS CAN TAKE MUCH LONGER THAN USUAL. THE FINAL SHIPPING DATES PROVIDED BELOW ARE A GUIDE ONLY, PROVIDED TO ME BY MY POST PROVIDER, AND I AM NOT ABLE TO GUARANTEE DELIVERY BY THESE TIMES.

OUTSIDE OF AUSTRALIA - Order by ...
W.A, S.A AND N.T - Order by ...

Privacy
Information I Collect
This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information, if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

- as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
- when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
- if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
- Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
- Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
- Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
- Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.
- My Tax Accountant, as a record of my sales and income.

Data Retention
I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 7 years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU
I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in Australia and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

How to Contact Me
For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Sarah Lyttle, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at flossyp [!at] gmail.com.
