About

Artist Dreams

I'm one of the lucky few that knew from a young age what I wanted to be. I've always wanted to be an artist. I fulfilled my dream thus far and graduated in 2013 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Studies, a degree that doesn't focus on one craft, but allows an exploration of many traditional and digital media.

I currently live and work from my home in Austin, Texas, where I have some space set aside for my art while I work to fully support myself. I've always wanted my own business as an artist and I am grateful to share my skills and my passion with every drawing and every order.

Shop policies

Last updated on September 16, 2014
Hello and welcome to Ellen Makes! Please let me know if you have any questions regarding my products or policies. I am happy to clarify or answer anything.

All drawings are drawn with the care and attention needed to make them look beautiful and accurate. Please allow two weeks for your piece to be lovingly created (though it will often take less, depending on my schedule.) I work in a pet and smoke free environment.

✧ Photo Submission Guidelines: ✧

Make sure the photo you send fits as close to these as possible:
-clear and in-focus
-full resolution (but under 10MB if attaching to an Etsy convo, unlimited file size if sending via email)
-clear lighting
-no crops or edits

The quality of your drawing depends on the clarity in which I can see your photo. Make sure the people or pets are a significant part of the image to achieve the best results possible. If you would like minor changes to be made, send me a message to discuss it, and I would love to help.

If you would like to mail an original copy to me, make a note of this when making your purchase and I will give you the correct address to mail it to. All original photos will remain intact and will be returned in the same envelope with the final product.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I will accept PayPal, major credit cards through PayPal, money order and personal checks. I will start commissioned work once the payment has cleared all accounts.

I will accept cancellations at any time before the drawing has shipped. But be aware that I can only refund 50% of the purchase for materials and time lost.

International buyers are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred.
Shipping
I package all drawings wrapped and sealed in protective paper to prevent smudging and placed in a flat cardboard mailer designed not to bend in transit for sizes up to 8x10 inches. 11x14" and larger are gently rolled and placed in a mailing tube.

Shipping will happen within three business days of your approval of the final piece, sent to you via convo or email.

If you need expedited shipping, or would like shipping insurance please message me so we may set up those options. Otherwise, I use USPS Priority shipping rates which takes 5-8 days in the US, 6-10 days internationally.

International buyers are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred.
Refunds and Exchanges
My policy is to make you happy! You will have opportunities to review the final drawing before it ships. You can request any changes be made at this time. The final drawing will only be shipped with your approval!

I will accept cancellations at any time before the drawing has shipped. But be aware that I can only refund 50% of the purchase for materials and time lost.

Should your item arrive damaged, you can choose to have your portrait re-drawn, or be refunded 50% of the total cost. Insurance can be purchased for your shipment. Let me know in a message and I can add that at the time of shipping and send you a new invoice.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you would like a custom product different than what I already offer (larger size, more complex, etc.), send me a message to discuss options and pricing. I would love to work with you to create a beautiful drawing of whatever memories you wish to preserve!

Please note that I make my living as an artist. In order to continue doing so I reserve the right to display past work as samples in my portfolio, as well as for listings in my etsy store for self promotion. If you feel that your custom piece is too personal to be shared publicly, please state this clearly at the time of ordering.

Frames used in my product images are by Signed & Numbered. Visit their shop here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/signedandnumbered

Thank you for reading my shop policies, and please contact me if you have any questions! Happy shopping!
