MOST COMMON QUESTIONS I GET ASKED.
1. Are all your paintings Original?
100% YES! All the paintings I have on my website are all original paintings. No reproductions are available. Perhaps down the line, I may consider doing some reproductions of my larger paintings, but currently, I ONLY MAKE ORIGINAL PAINTINGS.
2. Can I commission a painting?
Yes you can, if I have the time. My main focus is creating artwork that reflect my creative path.
I am so excited to announce that I now offer custom framing for all my original paintings on canvas!
4: How do you ship the artwork?
All available paintings on my website are ready to ship with 1-3 days after purchase.
All works on canvas are wrapped in paper and extra paper padding then sent in a well-fitting sturdy cardboard box. For paintings larger than 24 x 24 inches, painting will be removed from stretcher bars and shipped in a tube. Any good frame shop will know how to re-stretch the painting.
- All works on paper are matted in pH neutral matting with a foam board back for support.They are inserted in clear protective sleeve and sent in either a bubble mailers or a very sturdy cardboard mailer.
Most artwork will ship via Canada Post or UPS and most packages arrive within 2-4 business days (domestic) from time of shipping (includes tracking & insurance). International shipments will be sent via UPS or other carrier. Please note that shipping charges may vary from the amount you pay at checkout. Please email me with questions or to get an estimate.
If outside of Ontario, Artwork larger than 24 inches is sent un-stretched and rolled safely in a sturdy tube.
Artwork preferred to be shipped with the stretcher bars can be arranged. We can discuss the details via email.
Shipping costs are calculated at checkout based on package weight and distance. If there is any discrepancy -/+ you will be notified via email.
For international packages, Boarder fees, duties, and handling fees may be charged by other countries. Rules and regulations vary from country to country so tracking can sometimes be unreliable with international shipments.
Shipping costs cover fees, packaging supplies, time, labor, and storage.
5. Can I pick up my painting from your Studio?
FOR SURE! You are more than welcome to pick up your original artwork in person at my studio in Brantford, Ontario. Select Pickup at checkout.
Every order and sale is handled with great care. I try to present my paintings as true and honestly on my website as it is in real life.
Please take the time to read descriptions carefully and the check colors on multiple screens if you are concerned about color variations. Because of this, all sales are final.
7. Can I rent your paintings.
Yes you can! I am working with Partial Gallery in Toronto to offer rental options of my paintings for film, home, office and magazine set up. However shipping the paintings for rental are limited to Toronto and GTA only.
