Below you will find answers to common questions, but please don't hesitate to contact me directly at email@example.com or visit the contact page.
HOW DO I PURCHASE A PAINTING? All of my available watercolour paintings are in the Shop section of the website. Simply add the piece you would like to the cart and carry through with your order. You will then be prompted to select your shipping preferences (see below for shipping information). To view your shopping cart, click the shopping bag icon on the top right of any page.
ARE YOUR OIL PAINTINGS AVAILABLE FOR SALE? Absolutely! My oil paintings are displayed in the Portfolio section of the website and are available unless marked as "sold". Every piece in the Water and Sky series is 41 x 48" and is priced at $2,500 (Canadian dollars, no tax). If you are interested in purchasing an oil painting, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. It is difficult to provide standard shipping costs on the website so I prefer to figure it out on a case by case basis.
CAN I COMMISSION A PAINTING? I am not taking any commissions at this time.
HOW WILL MY ARTWORK BE PACKAGED FOR SHIPPING?
I take extreme care in wrapping every artwork properly before I ship it.
Each piece is first wrapped and sealed in an archival plastic sleeve and securely sandwiched between two pieces of cardboard. I then cover the entire package with bubble wrap and insert it safely into a tightly fitting, sturdy cardboard box. The box is then marked with a big and obvious FRAGILE!
WHAT COUNTRIES DO YOU SHIP TO?
The shop is setup to ship to Canada and the United States, however if you live elsewhere please contact me directly for a shipping estimate. Please email: email@example.com
HOW WILL MY ARTWORK BE SHIPPED?
I use UPS or Canada Post, which generally takes 4-6 days. This will include tracking and insurance
I use UPS. Please note that International packages may require additional boarder fees, duties, and handling fees, charged by other countries. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns.
