We are absolutely in love with our painting! Rachel did a fantastic job painting our Sonja from our favorite picture. The process was smooth and she was always available for questions, as well as keeping us updated. We will be sure to get all of our future pets portraits done by Rachel! Thank you!

This is the commission I'm working on this week.


From car salesman to artist!

I tell people that I began my art career as a used car salesman. While in grad school for social work, I was trying to find a way to make extra money without getting a 'real' job (yuck, who wants one of those???). So I started calling people in the newspaper selling cars or jewelry and offered to list their items on eBay for a fee. I sold a few cars and Rolexes, but it was a lot of work for very little money and even less fun.

I've always loved to draw and paint, but never took myself seriously as an artist. Hmmmm, what could I sell on eBay that would be FUN? One night, I decided to put a little painting on eBay for $1 and see what happened. It got bid up to something like $30 and I was hooked; I didn't sleep at all that night, I was so excited. That was over ten years ago, and I still love sharing my online art studio with the world.

Through my art, I've met people all over the globe, from Switzerland to China to my own home town. Because of my art I've visited new friends in Costa Rica and Switzerland, and met tons of people online. I've sold my work to people in Australia, Japan, France and many other places I only dream of visiting.

I hope my art brings you as much joy as it gives me in creating it. Be sure to friend me at www.facebook.com/rachelsstudiodotcom

Thank you so much to my wonderful patrons who support my art.

I ship prints and giclees rolled in a tube if you order just one. I ship originals and multiple prints flat. Free shipping is First Class. If you'd like tracking or Priority mail, please convo me and I will send you a paypal invoice for the extra cost. I have to custom order most prints after you purchase them, and handling time is typically 5 days for the $25 prints. Giclees take at least ten days UNLESS you don't want them signed. Then they take about 6 days to ship.

I can't be responsible for extra customs fees or other fees charged after I have paid the full amount requested on my end at the post office. Sometimes, international shipments can take a month! I highly recommend you convo me and pay extra for the best shipping you can afford. Shipping overseas from the US can take up to a month. I've NEVER lost art, but I have had art lost in the mail and then returned to me up to six months later. I always try to remail things if you haven't received your art by a month after the day I mailed it. However, for expensive items, I can not replace art (giclées or originals) unless you pay for at least the base cost. For originals, if you purchase insurance from me, I will repaint the picture. I highly recommend paying for International Priority, which is around $40 for most art sizes. Please convo me for details.
Refunds and Exchanges
I give a full refund minus shipping costs if you return the item undamaged within 15 days.
