About

Exploring Nature

I make artwork to remind the viewer of how beautiful the simple details of the world are. By breaking the plant down to the simplest form, the silhouette, the viewer can admire the elegant shape of the plant. I started a series of artworks called "Life Forms" with this idea in mind.

Drawing the plant, then painting the shape has become a sort of meditative practice for me. I have found a calmness in plants.

I've recently started another series of paintings called Clear Existence. Sometimes life gets hard and our choices aren't so easy. I've often admired that plants seem to have a clear plan from start to finish. Their seeds just blow in the wind. They drink when it rains, etc.

I work out of a studio in my house, where I surround myself with plants and natural light. The innocence of nature intrigues me. I find nature to be encouraging and optimistic and I try to convey that through my artwork. I have a particular love for the simplicity of the graceful nature of a silhouette.

While you may not find many of my original artworks here on Etsy, you will find my prints and panels. I've designed my prints and panels to be affordable for home decor and at the same time collectable as they are always archival and limited editions.

Each print edition started from an original painting, and through ultra-high resolution digital photography and imaging, has become its own unique piece of artwork. I individually print and digitally prepare each limited-edition print myself. Each is hand signed and numbered.

I also work at an art gallery that specializes in natural history art, fine art restoration/conservation, framing, digital photography and printmaking. I've worked with world-class museums, such as The Field Museum in Chicago, the New-York Historical Society, and the American Museum of Natural History in New York, to photograph their rare collections and make exclusive limited editions.

When doing business, I am concerned most with integrity and ethics. I am always improving my artwork by using quality archival materials from sustainable, recycled, and cruelty free sources.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
SALES TAX
Sales tax is applicable to all Illinois residents. Illinois State sales tax is 6.25%. County and city sales taxes are additional and vary depending on your shipping address. To make it simple, you will only pay the state sales tax and I will pay any additional sales tax.

PAYMENT
Please pay via Paypal within 3 days, or credit card on Etsy check out. I do not accept personal checks or money orders.
Shipping
HOW
All botanical prints and panels ship for free via USPS Priority or First Class Mail with delivery confirmation (usually takes 2-6 days).

All original artwork ships FedEx Ground/Home Delivery (within U.S.). Most packages will arrive within 1 to 5 business days. I do my best to quote shipping prices accurately. Any overcharge in shipping costs will be refunded via pay pal.

If you need your package in less than five business days, I can quote you on faster shipping.

Please ask about international shipping.

WHERE
Please ensure your shipping address is correct before placing your order. Orders shipped to the "wrong" address will require additional shipping charges to get it to the correct address.

GIFT WRAPPING & NOTES
I can also provide gift wrapping, cards, notes or tags if needed. Please inquire.
Refunds and Exchanges
I do my best to describe the artwork and provide many pictures. Please read the details carefully. Please remember that all monitors vary in color. I do think the photographs you see here are a good representation of color and texture but if you are concerned about color, you may want to take a look on another monitor.

If you are not satisfied with your purchase in any way, please email me within 5 business days of receiving your package. Artwork must be returned in the same condition it was received. The buyer pays for return shipping and will receive a full refund when I receive the returned item.

I will always do my best to ensure you received what you ordered in the very best condition.
Additional policies and FAQs
SIGNED ARTWORK
Most artwork is signed on front (or side), and back. In most cases I sign as only as "kim" on front (or side) and my full signature is on the back. All original pieces have the title on the back, some of the date. See individual item listings for exact descriptions. Please read and view photographs carefully. Cards are signed with "made by kim". Botanical panels (or art blocks) are signed only on the back.

I recently married and changed my name, so artwork and/or prints more than one year old are signed Kim Hoffman rather than Kim Granstrom.
