About

Paper, paint, scissors, glue. Love to see what it can do.

Self-taught mixed media collage artist who enjoys all things made of or from paint & paper, scissors & glue. Loves nothing better than a blank piece of paper and a nice big block of quiet time to give life to the things that live in the imagination ...

I tend toward vibrant colors and happy themes in my watercolors & doodleart pieces - but let my darker, mysterious (and, mildly creepy) side take over for my collage paintings. Being a typical Gemini (yep, thats where my name comes from), I'm used to having a dual nature in most things - my art is definitely included!

    Owner, Artist

    Have been artistically inclined since I was a young girl. I adore color! I love photography, the library, cats, and nature. I collect dictionaries. One day I will have a secret lil art cabin in the mountains <3 And you can come and do art with me :)

Payment
I accept Paypal, money orders and cashier or bank checks. I also gladly accept personal checks, drawn on US banks. Please remit payment for your items within 3 business days, thank you!
Shipping
All my shipping is done via USPS, and I ship daily for packages I can mail from home, and one to two times a week for things that need to be sent from the post office (usually on Tuesdays and/or Fridays). Insurance is optional and recommended for items that are fragile.

NOTE: Mailing outside the US is cost prohibitive on larger canvasses or framed or bulky/heavy items, so I no longer offer International shipping on those listings. I will gladly make exceptions if you see something you REALLY want, just message me first! I always attach and accurately fill out any/all required customs forms on International orders.

*ALSO!* I promptly refund any postage overages that are more than $1 US - trust me, I hate how expensive it is too! and try to keep it as close to actual postage as possible.
Refunds and Exchanges
I will gladly exchange or refund for any item that arrives damaged or broken. Custom art orders are non-refundable. As always, just contact me with any concerns or issues you may have: gem [!at] gemgirlart.com - THANKS!

ABOUT MY ART
________________________________________________________________________________
WATERCOLOR DOODLEART BLOCKS:
My watercolor doodles are hand-drawn in ink and painted with transparent watercolors and I hand-letter the text. Almost all InspiRainbow watercolor pieces include a small red heart somewhere - as I put my heart into each piece I create.

Artwork is created separately on watercolor paper then attached to a white pine block and sealed with acrylic spray for protection. Each block is roughly 3.5" square and 3/4" deep with fully painted sides and can freestand, rest on a small tabletop easel, or hang with attached sawtooth hanger. Each piece signed & dated and titled on back.

MIXED MEDIA COLLAGE BLOCKS:
My collage paintings are a mix of magazine cuttings, vintage maps, patterned paper, old book pages and ephemera, with acrylic paint, watercolor, inks, stamps, stencils, pencils, pastels and whatever else is within my reach I can apply to the piece ...
