Animal Paintings and Gifts from Caroline Skinner Art

At Caroline Skinner Art you will find cheerful animal paintings in gorgeous colours to match your home decor. Each of the wildlife and other animals I portray in my art have been studied, often for hours at conservation parks or farms, and the expression on their face or glint in their eyes will make you and your friends smile, and give you years of pleasure.

As well as original paintings in various sizes, I also produce high quality giclee prints and unique and colourful blank cards of my wildlife and animal art. I print these to order for you on my own professional 10-ink art printer, tucked away in one corner of my non-smoking home in Surrey, England.

If you prefer your animals in more natural colours, I'm happy to oblige, although pet portrait clients have been happy with the outcome of my more colourful style - who knew that a black dog's coat could have green tones in it?

I have 2 rescue cats at home and you can often find me volunteering in the cattery at my local animal shelter or sketching animals in UK conservation parks or wildlife centres. My work is often used to fundraise for animal conservation charities.

The range of colourful and expressive animal paintings, prints and cards for you to choose from is constantly expanding and changing. I'm now working with a fantastic UK specialist printer to bring animal images alive on an exclusive range of animal homeware for you. If you can't quite find what you are looking for, do get in touch to discuss bringing your favourite animal to life for you!

Caroline Skinner Art has been exhibiting and selling for some years, with some of her art in private collections in the UK, Europe and the USA. If you are in the South of England, check my website for details of exhibitions in the area, and come and say hello. Make sure you keep in touch with animal stories, new artwork and exclusive follower offers by signing up for occasional newsletters (copy and paste link) : http://eepurl.com/cG0lRD

Frequently asked questions
Can I get a discount/coupon?

I currently offer an introductory discount/coupon code to those who sign up to my mailing list. Enter your name and email address here for further details: http://eepurl.com/cG0lRD

What happens if I join your mailing list?

You will receive a discount/coupon code to use on your next order through my Etsy shop. If you have already recently placed an order, you can use it for your next purchase.

Why not sign up before you place your first order and use the discount code to reduce the cost?

I will send you occasional newsletters with details of new art work, wildlife conservation and animal stories, plus occasional special offers for my followers. Your email address will not be shared with anyone else and you can unsubscribe at any time. I use Mailchimp secure servers to store mailing list details.

Can you guarantee shipping times?

SEE EXTENDED DELIVERY TIMES BELOW FOR CURRENT NEWS

Average shipping times are 2 -10 days in the UK and 10-30 days for international orders. If you need an item more quickly please contact me before ordering to check whether I can meet your needs.

Processing times are 1-3 business days (i.e. Monday to Friday) for most items - see individual listings. Processing times start from when your payment clears.

Processing times for items printed by my specialist printer may be slightly longer as they are made to order - usually 3 - 5 business days once payment has cleared, and often quicker.

Shipping times start from when the item has been marked as sent in Etsy - they cannot be guaranteed as they depend on postal services outside my control.

How do I order a personalised painting from you?

Click on "Request Custom Order" to start a conversation about what you would like. Once we have agreed on size, colours, timescale, price etc, I will create a custom private listing for you to complete the sale. I'll keep you informed with progress reports and photos and ask for your feedback, and send your painting once it's completed.

See below for customised pet portraits.

How do I order a customised pet portrait?

Go to the relevant listing on my Etsy shop and select your preferred size and make your payment.

If you have any questions about whether I can paint your pet, timescales etc, please click "Ask a Question" next to the price and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

I will need good photographs of your pet, preferably taken in natural light, and I will send you progress photos as the painting takes shape, encouraging you to make any comments as I want you to be happy with the finished painting.

EXTENDED DELIVERY TIMES

As of April 2020, postal services from the UK may be subject to some delays.

Courier services are currently operating, so I can arrange for larger items to be collected from my home.

Most processing times have been slightly extended by a few days to allow for this.

My specialist UK printer is currently operating as normal, so coasters, mugs, placemats, chopping boards and reusable bottles will be sent to you within 3 to 5 days as usual. There may be postal system delays once they leave the printer.

I will inform you of the current postal situation when you order from me, and give you the option of cancelling your order if you would prefer not to wait.

Also see "Can you guarantee shipping times?" above for standard shipping times.

How accurate are the colours shown here?

Every effort is made to get the colours in my photography as close as possible to the original colours of my art. However, monitors do vary, and there may be some slight differences in what you see.

If you don't love your art when you receive it, please contact me. See the Returns policy for more details.

When I buy your artwork, does the copyright transfer to me?

The copyright remains with the artist unless it has been expressly transferred to you, for which there will be an additional cost.

This means that you own the particular piece of artwork that you have purchased, but you are not permitted to copy it under any circumstances without the artist's permission. This is a common term for buying any artwork.

As a one-person UK art business, if you copy my artwork you deprive me of income, and it may result in legal action. Thank you for understanding.

Can I cancel or return my purchase if I change my mind?

Under current UK law you have the right to cancel an order up to 14 days after purchase. Please advise in writing by Etsy conversation or email, ideally before the item has been sent to you.

If the order has been shipped and you change your mind, please contact me within 14 days of receipt to arrange a return.

Items should be returned in the original packaging or similar and in an unused and saleable condition within 30 days of receipt. The buyer is responsible for paying return postage. Items are sent at the buyer's own risk, so tracked postage is advisable.

If returning goods from outside the UK, please mark as "Return" for Customs purposes.

Please note that custom orders cannot be returned unless faulty.

What happens if my item is damaged when I receive it?

Great care is taken to ensure that your artwork or gift is securely packaged to arrive safely.

If your purchase arrives broken or damaged or is faulty in any way, please contact me within 14 days of delivery to discuss return or replacement.

Items will be checked on receipt and refunded within 14 days.

Outward shipping costs will be included in the refund. Return postage will not be included, unless the item is faulty.
