NB - I am running this shop with a young baby in tow, so when ordering, please allow plenty of time for posting!

POSTAGE ~

NB: I live on wheels, so while travelling I cannot always guarantee immediate replies or shipping. I do however have internet access wherever there's signal and ship once a week/fortnight depending on orders... let me know if you need something in time for a special date and I'll send it out straight away :)

All prints are sent packaged in a nice plastic protective sleeve and a board backed envelope to prevent bends. Giclée prints and originals will be well wrapped and sent with postal insurance.

Many thanks to all my customers for supporting and encouraging me. My art is my only means of making a living, so your purchases and appreciation are important and deeply valued.

Please send me a conversation if you are interested in larger prints,
commissions or originals

I have another etsy shop here: http://onceuponoclock.etsy.com where I sell my hand made and hand painted clocks....

If you'd like frames for my prints.. I cannot recommend David Winter's recycled rustic wooden frames highly enough: http://www.yorkart.etsy.com
He hand makes them from found wood, and I think they suit my gnarly foresty work perfectly.

The Hermitage is always filled to the brim with incredibly beautiful paintings that are heavily layered in folklore and meaning. So having the chance to give this wonderful print as a gift to a friend, is pretty fantastic. Thank you so much for crafting such magical artwork!

About

The Hermitage - Paintings in a Minor Key

Rima Staines is an artist using paint, wood, word, music, animation, clock-making, puppetry and story to attempt to build a gate through the hedge between the worlds.

Rima’s inspirations include the world and language of folktale; peasant and nomadic living; the art and music of Old Europe; magics of every feather; wilderness, plant-lore; the margins of thought, community and spirituality; and the beauty there is to be found in otherness.

Rima's artwork has appeared in and on books, magazines, and record covers on both sides of the Atlantic. She maintains a passionately-followed blog at http://intothehermitage.blogspot.com and has sold paintings and prints of her work (as well as the clocks she makes) on her travels the length and breadth of Britain. A former accordionista with the London Gypsy Orchestra, she can now be found playing by Devon’s street corners and campfires. She has books in the making, and also produces animations and puppets and obscure games in lost dialects.

Rima lives on the wild edge of Dartmoor, working from a studio at the top of a ladder beyond a trapdoor, where she keeps her wonder-cauldron simmering.

Shipping
I parcel and package all prints in waterproof wrapping and stiffened envelopes, and send originals and giclée prints tracked with postal insurance. The postage prices here directly reflect the Royal Mail rates, apologies that they are not cheap.

I post once a week/fortnight depending on the volume of orders, but am more than happy to send something sooner if you need it for a special occasion. Just let me know when you order. Likewise if you live in a country where you feel extra postal insurance might be necessary to ensure the parcel gets to you, please let me know when you order.

I will send the order to the address on your etsy account, so please make sure this is correct.

Please bear in mind that I am running this shop on my own alongside my studio work, so responses and delivery times will reflect that.
Refunds and Exchanges
I'm afraid I cannot offer a refund once I have posted an item, nor be held liable for items lost in the post. I am however very willing to help and accommodate if you send me a message to discuss something.
Additional policies and FAQs
It should go without saying, but these images are copyright of Rima Staines and cannot be reproduced in any form. Please respect my creative domain.

I'm open to any additional questions or requests you might have, and hope that you are as happy with your purchases as have been the many many people who have supported me over the past years :)
