About

Behind the Wonder

One day, after a very, very, very long (years) struggle with the deep darks of depression and a final melt-down that sucked all creative life out of me, I found myself waking up to life again, and I said a little prayer: "God, I feel like I need to be creative again. What should I do?" Well, His answer should be obvious to ya!! And I am so incredibly thankful to be an artist. I mean, who knew? I sure didn't!

INSPIRED BY:

ღ the raw expression & time-worn appeal of folk art in combination with cheerful, vintage inspired colors (red + pink + aqua= LOVE)

ღ the landscape and culture of Northwest Texas where I grew up (riding horses with my dad, stories from my mom's childhood and her love of antiques and vintage goodies, both of my grandmothers' humble homes and good cooking, Miss Rosie's catfish and Aunt Mary Jane's peach cobbler)

ღ what happens between the beginning and the end of a painting or creative project- totally smitten. There is so much "space" to learn and listen during the act of creating...Man! The wonder of it all fuels my soul for miles and miles.

ღ life with Jesus, everyday life from world events to daily tasks, the people I love

My prayer is that the art that comes out of my life will renew your sense of wonder
in the midst of a world that has so many dark places.

ღ Mystele

Wonder [wun-duhr], noun: A deep seated awe arising from any life experience that [whether profoundly simple, once-in-a-lifetime thrilling or somewhere inbetween] causes a person to look beyond the realm of self and press in for a closer look at the "Other" [the Creator and origin of wonder Himself]

Thank you so very much for visiting Wonder Works (formerly Mystele Paint). I truly value your eyes for my art.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Illinois customers- sales tax will be applied.
Shipping
Continental US Orders- Prices as listed.
Everywhere else: $20...I will promptly refund any shipping overages once I find out the actual cost. If shipping costs more than $20, I will contact you with the amount before mailing. You can decide if you want to proceed or cancel the order at that point. Thank you!

I ship via usps first class or priority mail. I usually ship within 3-5 business days of payment receipt. In the event that I can't do this, I will let you know.
Refunds and Exchanges
Due to the nature of my work, all sales are final. Please know that I take care in preparing my beloved characters to travel to their new homes. Since I started painting and shipping original art from my home studio to art lovers around the world in 2008, I've had only one instance of damage.

Bubble wrap is my "right hand man" when I'm packaging paintings on wood, and I use rigid mailers or foamboard in packaging original paintings on paper/card.
Additional policies and FAQs
Thanks for stopping by, and let me know if you have any questions.

Wonder full,
