Art by Nancy Farmer

Most of the items in my shop are digital prints of my paintings - I do not list many originals, but if you love one of them enough to want to have the original, please send me a message - a number of my original paintings are available for sale and I am always happy to list items for sale on Etsy on request, if they are not already there.

I also list an increasing number of etchings and other handmade prints. These are originals, and are usually from a very short run of original prints, generally no more than 20. To preserve the specialness of handmade prints, I do not make digital prints of these artworks, once they are gone, they are gone!

And, if you have browsed my shop, you will see that I also sell quite a few naughty cards, too. If you feel they don't quite 'go' with the other artwork, you might be right, but it is these cards that keep this shop going - they outsell my 'proper' pictures several times over!

I am a self-employed artist, and I paint paintings that amuse me. Occasionally I do get asked for commissions, so do enquire, if you have something in mind.

    My art is a confection of fantasy and reality, my compositions peopled with characters drawn from my observation of the everyday and the mundane, but coloured by my love of stories and fairytales.

Hi, welcome to my Etsy shop.

I'm a professional artist living in Somerset, UK. I paint, and I draw digital images. My work is part fantasy, part satire, and increasingly I have a new strand of work that is all about open water swimming, because that is what I do, all year round.

If you would like me to keep in touch occasionally, I have an email list that I use to inform people about exhibitions, promotions, new things I think you might be interested in - I only send it occasionally and you won't be swamped, I promise. To be added, please send me a message on Etsy with your email, or you can add yourself by visiting this page:
You can unsubscribe to the list anytime you wish, and I promise never to pass on your email.

My Etsy shop contains a selection of my more popular prints, cards, and even sometimes swimming hats with my artwork on them However, it doesn't have everything. If you are looking for something and can't find it, I am always happy to put up a listing on request. Likewise I can often list prints in larger or smaller sizes if they are not currently in my shop.

For a selection of original artwork, please see my other shop:

My website, has more examples of my artwork, and my blog, has very recent, often unfinished work on it. If there is anything that you have seen that I have available, and would like to purchase through Etsy, I am happy to put up a special listing for you.

Thank you for visiting!

Returns and exchanges
If you are not happy with an item, please contact me. I will replace or refund damaged or lost items. I can also refund returned items that are undamaged, but that you do not want, however in this case I cannot refund the shipping.

Items that you do not want (but are undamaged) must be returned to me first before I can issue a refund, damaged items may sometimes be replaced without first being returned, unless they are limited editions. I will refund the return shipping if you do have to return a damaged item.
I can accept payments through Paypal (for which you don't have to have a Paypal account - Paypal may also be used to pay by credit card), and I accept credit card payments through Etsy's direct checkout.

I also accept payments by cheque (check) or Postal Orders, provided they are in Pounds Sterling ONLY. If you wish to pay by bank transfer, this is also possible, but please note that if the bank is not a UK bank you may be charged a fee, and international bank transfers aren't usually a good way of sending small payments for this reason.
I will always replace or refund any items lost or damaged during shipping. I do not usually send items with tracking or insurance for the following reasons: It would push up the cost of shipping for every item, and that the shipping insurance generally only covers the cost of my materials in any case, not my time and work.

In my experience very few items are lost in the post, and my policy is that I would rather replace lost or damaged items and cover the cost myself. This keeps my shipping costs down.

Please be aware that I ship from the UK, and for shipping overseas (especially in the weeks before Christmas), the time taken for an item to reach you can vary considerably. If your package has not arrived in the time expected, I will usually ask you to wait a few more days before sending out a replacement, but in the event that your order does not reach you be assured that I will always replace lost items or refund where an item is irreplaceable.

I ship inland by Royal Mail, overseas by Airmail.
Additional policies and FAQs
I can provide wholesale prices for large orders. This is generally 20+ cards or 10+ prints. For smaller multiple purchases I can usually offer a small discount on request.
