About

The Journey of SmackinArt

As part of my recovery from a mild traumatic brain injury 11 years ago, I began keeping visual journals. Although I had always drawn, painted, created throughout my life, at this time, art had become therapy. It was a valuable tool in the recovery from my injury and, ultimately, my authentic self.

I had been primarily working in pen, ink and pencil. Ready to expand, I brought out my watercolors that i had used a few years prior while taking lessons. I noticed that my head pain, which was intense & constant, would ease while I painted. Naturally, I became driven to paint.

Painting was became not only my distraction from pain, but also my therapy, my happy place, my passion and my escape. Soon, I became overrun with watercolors. I was gifting most of them & keeping others, until an art mentor stopped me. He said, "Tina, your art has value and you need to honor that."

Though I still gave several paintings as gifts, the rest I sold. Soon, I realized people, especially my closest friends, wanted to buy my art. I also began creating note cards featuring my paintings, because people wanted smaller versions of my work.

Over the past 8 years, I have worked as an artist, owning a "vanity" gallery for two years & partnering in a co-op for another two years. Currently, as a single mom of two teenagers, I work from a studio at home. (There's no place like it.)

Right now, my passion is creating earrings, bracelets and necklaces. I mix crystals, gemstones, African beads, glass beads, Lucite beads, findings & cast off earring parts.

Welcome to SmackinArt. Look around & enjoy yourself. I personally thank you for your visit.

    At five-years-old, I declared: "I am going to be an artist. I do not care if I live on the streets." I never abandoned my dream. Thank goodness I abandoned the idea to live on the streets. My studio is in my wonderful home. Welcome to SmackinArt.

Payment
I accept VISA, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Paypal & Etsy gift cards through Etsy. If I know you personally, I will accept a personal check or cash through the mail or in person. Payment is required, before I will ship your item.
Shipping
I ship items United States Postal Service, unless the buyer requests otherwise. At which time, a shipping for the another shipping agent (FedEx or UPS, etc.) will be quoted & that quote must be approved by the buyer. Also, large framed art pieces will be insured & shipped through UPS, unless specified otherwise through the buyer.

Jewelry is shipped in a padded (with bubble wrap) envelope with cardboard protector as well. USPS considers this a parcel price shipping. While it costs a little more, it ensures your item arrives intact.

Shipping costs are posted on each piece. Shipping cost of framed original art will be discussed at time of purchase.
Refunds and Exchanges
If an order is damaged or did not work out: (1) message me via Etsy within 24 hours; (2) I will give you a mailing address to return the item; (3) When I receive the item, I will refund the item's purchase amount, which includes the cost of shipping the item to you. If the item was damaged when you received it, I will also refund the return shipping costs you incurred. Instead of a refund, an exchange for an item of equal or lesser value can be chosen.

Order cancellations: If an order is canceled before the item has shipped, I will process your refund in 48 hours. If an order is canceled after it has been shipped, policies (1), (2) & (3) will apply with ONE exception - the shipping cost and return shipping cost will not be refunded.

I also sell on zazzle and cafepress.
