* Currently, I am shipping orders and will continue as long as the USPS and UPS are operating and shipping supplies are available. Your order will be carefully packed with lots of hand-washing!
How do I find/purchase available work?
* To see what's currently available, head straight to my shop.
* All new paintings are released first via my Studio Newsletter. Usually a group of paintings loosely combined as part of a collection are made available periodically throughout the year. Make sure you sign up to be the first to see new work, as certain paintings can sell out quickly at times!
* If a piece is marked "private collection", it is sold. If a piece is marked on hold, it is either with another venue as noted (contact me and I can assist with the purchase) or temporarily held for a designer or client.
What payment methods do you accept?
* The preferred method is through Paypal or by Debit/Credit Card. You do not have to have a Paypal account to purchase with my online shopping cart. A debit or credit card works just as well, Paypal will give you the option at checkout to use your own card.
IMPORTANT : Please make sure that the shipping address you provide through your Paypal account is the correct one!
Do you offer a layaway plan?
* Yes! For pieces $600 and over, I do offer layaway. We work out invoice installments (typically over the course of 3-8 months) and once the painting is paid in full, I ship your piece out to you!
DOMESTIC SHIPPING FOR ALL ORDERS IS FREE.
