I am a single mother of two beautiful little boys that are my world. I'm a self taught artist and made a decision to give it one last shot and see if I can really do what some people have told me I can. There aren't any oppurtunities for artist where I'm from, which is a very small town in Texas. When I was growing up most people said that I had raw talent and great potential but that I better just get a real job and make something out of myself because it's too hard to make it as an artist. Well unfortunetly I did give it up and tried various different positions at many different jobs. I'd either get fired or quit and never could stick with anything and felt empty while I was there. I couldn't take it anymore and got back to what I loved and was my passion , and happened to be good at it , which was an extra bonus. I didn't want to settle I wanted to do something that I absolutely loved to do and make a living doing it. It was possible I knew this, and it might be hard for someone like myself but I can't worry about that. I thought for a long time that I couldn't do that to my boys and that it would be selfish of me to chase my dreams in hopes of ,making an income to provide for them instead of just getting out there and working somewhere that I knew a check was coming in, but then what would that be teaching them to do when they got older? To settle for whatever makes a dollar, or to chase a passion that they felt described a part of who they were and accomplishments that were gratifying to the soul not just the bank account. So here I am on etsy and hoping to connect with the world through paint, and a canvas. Something that is another subject totally but that I thought was very interesting is that I was diagnosed wiith A.D.D. in highschool and still to this day take medication for it. But when I'm painting, and without the medicine it's like I'm so focused, almost too focused and don't notice anything going on around me. No noises, or vision of people walking around me. I am the exact opposite of what I am when I'm not painting with the A.D.D. and can't have one thought at a time. Instead I have several racing through my head and have the attention span of an eight year old. It's amazing what happens when you emmerse yourself in a passion in hopes of making a dream come true. The process is better than anything else I know of and I just hope that I can strike a chord with atleast one person other than myself in doing so. That would be all I'd need to know to be satisfied.
Accepted payment methods
Since I am just starting out I currently only take pay pal for payment. Hopefully in the future I'll add to this but as of right now I figured since it's free for anyone to get an account and it has my back with thier policy, that it would be the best thing for now.
Everything will be shipped via Fed Ex and carefully wrapped with safe and quality material to protect the painting. If when you recieve it you decide it just isn't something you like , then return it in seven days the way it was shipped to you, back in the same box. A confirmation will be emailed to you upon my recieving it. When payments are recieved , it will be shipped.
Refunds and Exchanges
7 days to return. Use the same box and protective papers to send it back please.
Additional policies and FAQs
Eventually I will have coupons available and special sale prices. It's important to me to create something that I know the person will like. So if it's not listed and theres something you'd like , let me know and I'll paint it. We can correspond via email and I can show you progression pictures of the painting along the way so that if theres something that you don't quite like , I can edit it. Or something that needs to be added then I can add that too. We can play around until it is exactly what you want. Thanks and I hope you enjoy.
