Wander on Words is a celebration of Hand Lettering, Photography & Design.

My name is Colleen Wilcox, and I welcome you to Wander on Words!

I am an artist currently based out of Pittsfield, Vermont. With a background in photography and travel, I like to think I've gained a unique perspective of the world and a feel for design. I started doodling on stock lists while working in Yellowstone National Park, and I've since transformed this haphazard hobby into a full-fledged passion.

I graduated from the University of Illinois in 2012 with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art Photography. I absolutely adore the outdoors and my photography and hand lettering reflect that. Throughout my explorations, I've been lucky enough to photograph beautiful wildlife and incredibly unique landscapes of the world. I took a typography class in college that planted in me a seed of appreciation for hand lettering, and I haven't looked back!

I started simply by digitizing my hand lettering and applying it to my photography in the form of signs and art pieces. I then expanded my love for words, travel, and hand lettering into state and country designs. Realizing that I wanted to offer something a little more practical, I had the revelation to create cards from my work. Cards have the power to inspire, thank, congratulate, brighten, or sympathize. My hope is that my words and art can help people do so!

Hailing from Illinois, I have since moved around to Montana, Colorado, and now, Vermont. I am currently a Graphic Designer for Boss Office Works in Killington where I use my creativity to help small businesses flourish.

In my spare time, I can be found exploring the Northeast by hiking, backpacking, snowboarding, skinning, photographing, camping, kayaking, snowshoeing and generally getting outside.

I hope to be able to inspire others to keep the wanderlust alive with my art and my cards. Keep loving nature and remember to Wander On!

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

Information I Collect:

To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom hand-lettered design, for example), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It:

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

• As needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfill your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
• When you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
• If necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
• As necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services, and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure:

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

1. Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
2. Shipping Providers. I ship my artwork using the USPS or UPS. I will share your address with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
3. Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention:

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 3 years.

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

1. Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
2. Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
3. Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
4. Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
