Announcement   A few years ago, Etsy was really hopping. I sold over 120 items, and it felt like a vibrant community. Not sure what happened, but no one can find me anymore, so I am moving to eBay. You can find me there at mmcullenmm.
_______________________________________________________

I have been making art since I was a child, and it is something that I have to do. It is compulsive, really. If I do not make art for a while, I start to feel off-balance.

Through the years, I have been represented by galleries, and collected by libraries, museums, and private collectors all over the globe. I have lived in San Francisco, Madrid, and Kanazawa (Japan), but I have always considered the Midwest to be my home.

My wife is Japanese, and is from the city of Aomori. We tend to visit her family every 12-18 months. Aomori is the birthplace of master printmaker Munakata Shiko. Whenever I am there, we go to the Munakata Museum to check out his incredible woodcuts.

As for the artwork, my influences are: Modigliani, Matisse, and Japanese woodblock artists. Other sources of inspiration are: children, children's picture books, cartoons, and animation. Stylistically, people say they can recognize a "Cullen," but I don't think I consciously invented those notions. I just do what I do, and I humbly acknowledge my limitations.

Sometimes, it is easier for me to explain all of this, or parts of it, if someone asks me a question. I am a Reference Librarian by day, so that process has become ingrained, and second nature.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

Shop policies

Last updated on February 3, 2011
All prints are hand-pulled prints. No digital stuff. Each one is slightly unique because the printing plate tends to do that. They are reasonably priced to sell. I want my creations to get out in the world and enjoy themselves. I can provide framing as well. Convo me and we can discuss the particular details.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Buy with Apple Pay
  • Pay with Sofort
  • Pay with iDeal
  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
Payment
PayPal and money order are best. As soon as I see confirmation (or the money order), I immediately start packaging the artwork for shipping.
Shipping
All items are shipped the day of sale or the following day. I send them out using First-Class Mail in a rigid envelope. Additionally, all art is protected within a plastic sleeve. I have sent items all over the world, including: Germany, France, Netherlands, Australia, England, Canada, etc.
Refunds and Exchanges
I have never had a damaged or lost item, or a request for a refund. My items are small, so I think they ship very easily. If you read my feedback, glowing reviews are the norm. In most cases, the quality of the artwork exceeds expectations.

If for some reason, the item is damaged, another print from the edition will be sent to replace it. Convo me and we can discuss the particular details.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am open to Alchemy and custom orders, but it would require flexibility from the requester as well. My style is fairly fixed, so I would not be the best choice for someone who has definite, and/or preconceived notions for a project.

A shop in Seattle wanted some prints in bulk, and we worked that out. Pricing can be modified to accommodate wholesalers. Convo me, and we can discuss the particular details.
