I paint, adorable, whimsical portraits of girls. (at this point, I'm not doing males and the only reason is that, with the whimsical type portraits, I haven't found a way to paint males that I happy with)
They make wonderful decor for the bedroom, unique gifts.....a special piece of art that will be treasured.
The paints are on high quality, archival watercolor or mixed media paper. I use, either, watercolor or acrylics with colored pencil accents.
Three sizes available to fit standard frames: 11 x 14 in, 16 x 20 in, or 20 x 24 in.
Mattes and frames are NOT included.
If you need another size, contact me and I will try to accommodate you.
One subject per painting.
Your painting will be completed within 1-2 weeks after receiving the photo of the subject.
After you order the painting and send the photo, I like to have an online conversation to discuss any specifics that are important to you. Because this is a whimsical interpretation, I am using my imagination, as well as, the photo to create the portrait. I want to make sure that you are going to be happy with it, so it's good to talk about any questions or ideas that you may have.
When the painting is finished, I will send a clear photo to you for approval.
All I need is a very clear photo looking straight into the camera, in good light, preferably with a "closed-mouth" smile. It is also helpful to know favorite colors and hairstyle preference. Most of the time, I paint the hair in an unusual color, however, if you would like the actual color, just let me know.
Refunds and Returns
I want you to be happy with your portrait. If, for some reason, you are not satisfied, the painting may be returned, at your expense, within 14 days, undamaged for a full refund. However, the reason for sending the photo prior to shipment is so that we can discuss anything and attempt to may minor changes.
Paypal is my preferred method of payment. If payment has not been made within three days from the date of order, I reserve the right to cancel the order, unless prior arrangements have been made between myself and the buyer with an email confirmation.
I will ship USPS mail, unless other mutually agreed upon arrangements have been made. I do insure all items. Upon request, I will ship Next Day Air or regular mail with a signature of receipt. An email confirmation will be sent as soon as the items have been sent. I make every effort to mail the jewelry, cards, and art prints on the same day that the payment is received. however it will definitely be no later than the date indicated on the listing, unless otherwise notified.
For furniture items, Greyhound is the least expensive method. However, the item will be sent to the Greyhound facility in your town and you will have to pick it up. I am also happy to ship using your preferred shipping method. Unless otherwise stated, the buyer will be responsible for all shipping charges. If purchasing furniture, please contact me prior to purchase to discuss the shipping method and charges.
I will try to accommodate for any refunds or exchanges. Please contact me immediately upon receipt of the item to discuss any exchanges or refunds so that the matter may be resolved quickly. A full refund of the purchase price will be provided if the item(s) are returned in their original condition within 10 days of purchase. The Buyer will be responsible for the return shipping costs. If a shipped item has been lost, I will work with you to find a solution as quickly as possible. Feel free to contact me with any concerns.
For furniture - Most of the pieces are pre-owned and have been re-painted and distressed. Therefore, chipped painted and dents should be expected and desired. If the piece is damaged during shipping, I will deal with Greyhound. The piece will be insured for the value. If using your preferred shipping method, you will need to deal with the shipper for any damage.
I welcome custom orders and Alchemy orders. If you have an idea and are wondering if I could accomodate you, please contact me. I am always interested in trying new things.
