Frequently Asked Questions
If you have questions, I have answers! Browse through some of my Frequently Asked Questions .
I prefer email as I can keep track of inquiries and tasks, and I block my time for email work. You can use my contact form to make it easy and efficient to contact me.
All orders will be shipped in 3-10 business days via USPS Priority mail, UPS or FedEx, depending on the size of the item and whether framing was desired. For medium to larger works, and if crating is needed to safely ship, it will be UPS or FedEX. USPS can ship larger works but it is a lot more expensive!
If I anticipate framing will take longer for any reason, I will reach out and let you know! You will receive a tracking number via email once the work has shipped.
If you are in the Fargo-Moorhead area and wish to pick it up, please select STUDIOPICKUP at checkout. I will have a table in the front lobby with your piece labeled for pick-up between the hours of 8 AM and 5 PM. I will always try to say hello if I am in the studio! Thank you for supporting a small business!
I want you to love your new art work, and I take great care in shipping to prevent any damage. If you are not 100% satisfied, please notify me within 3 days of receiving the work. You may return the art in perfect condition in its original packaging for a full refund, minus shipping costs, as shipping costs are non-refundable. *You must pay to insure your return for the value of the painting and use a tracking method.* If you picked it up at the studio, you may also drop it off in the packaging. Once the work is received and inspected, I will send you an email notice of receipt, and a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original method of payment within 3 business days.
This depends on whether this is a reproduction or a commissioned work. I offer commission to produce similar works to other originals, and would want to know what is loved about the sold original (color palette, composition, shapes, etc.) Something I am heavily considering in the future is offering art prints, if the desire is for a piece exactly like an original. These can be done on special papers including canvas paper, with the option to have it framed or frame this yourself. If there is demand, I can begin offering pre-ordering of specific items.
This answer would be similar to the previous. Art prints/reproductions are offered in various sizes, and I can begin offering pre-ordering in the future.
I am otherwise able to do commissioned works that are similar to other originals, but won't ever be exactly the same.
Please see my commissions page for more information! I welcome commissions and the uniquely fun creative challenge that they present.
This is in the works! The newsletter will offer info on events, promotions, press, and new works. Sign up for the mailing list and keep an eye out!
This is currently being drafted! I am making decisions on those policies now.
Yes! I am drafting an art leasing contract soon, and am looking to collaborate with Interior Designers. I want to offer my art for lease or sale in staging homes, and believe my work can help elevate a room with my spacious, modern style with earth tones and neutrals.
I am open to learning more about local and regional gallery representation.
Yes, they do.
Yes! In fact, I prefer to sell pieces framed and ready to hang, however I understand some folks would rather purchase their own frame or may have one ready to go. I work with my husband to create simple, modern hardwood frames of professional quality.
Wood options include: birch, poplar, walnut, cherry, red oak, white oak, and maple. The lighter woods are able to be painted black or white. Cost for a frame plus matting with acrylic glass (matting & glass for watercolor works only) is comparable to the current market value for professional framing. Works on stretched canvas and hard board canvas are all floated into a frame (check out the look via the framing gallery photos on the product pages). Works on wood panels will be sold either pre-framed or offered the choice, and this frame is tight to the panel with no "space" between.
All larger framed works are shipped in a crate made for each specific work.
We are happy to take care of the hassle of framing so you receive a completely finished work. Canvas works sold without frames are painted white on the edges, and watercolor works are glued to a board ready to pop into a frame. I strongly recommend framing watercolor works with glass to preserve and protect the work.
