HERE ARE ANSWERS TO SOME COMMON QUESTIONS:
(If you have additional questions, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
HOW DO I BUY AN ORIGINAL?
I create as many paintings as possible and release them in collections on my website a few times per year. The number of paintings and subject of a collection vary, but all of my releases will be well advertised beforehand via social media prior to the release date. These paintings tend to go very quickly, so be sure to be to snag one! (Fear not, however!) If you fell in love and missed it, please email me and I will happily re-create another beautiful original just for you!
CAN I COMMISSION A PAINTING?
Yes! The process is very easy and I work closely with you to bring your vision to life. You receive a personalized concierge experience involving one on one communication with me so that we design together exactly what you envision in your home. Along with this personal experience you will receive progress photos and videos documenting the entire painting from start to finish.
Do you make Prints?
No. I do my best to price my artwork at reasonable and comparable prices so that you have an original piece that holds value for your collection and for your family as part of your estate. If there is a print available it is a signed and editioned piece that will be printed by hand to retain the monetary value for you. My philosophy is that all people should have the ability to enjoy original hand painted art at a price that most people can afford.
HOW IS MY ARTWORK GOING TO BE SHIPPED?
All artwork is professionally packaged using white glove handling and care. Each piece is insured with the value of the piece to ensure that if it does not arrive safely to you, the cost is covered for you as the collector.
Most orders will ship via USPS or UPS and most domestic packages arrive within 2-4 days from the time of shipping. Tracking info will be sent to the email used to purchase your order, and you and I both see where your order is during it's trip to you.
International shipments can be discussed by email as they require additional charges and logistics.
CAN I PICK UP MY ARTWORK FROM YOUR STUDIO?
Absolutely! You welcome to pick up your artwork in person at my studio in Mandeville, Louisiana. Choose the Local Pickup option at checkout and you and I will coordinate the time and date to pickup your order in person.
No. Please reference the Commision Painting question above to understand the process of creating your artwork. When you purchase a custom piece of art, you and I are in constant communication throughout the creation process so that you are fully satisfied with the final outcome of your painting. If in the rare instance there is a manufacture defect in the frame, glass, paint, or canvas a replacement, repair or refund will be discussed on a case by case basis with the purchaser.
7. STOCKISTS & GALLERIES:
I am honored that you would like my artwork on your walls and in your shop! Gallery and shop owners, please send me an email at email@example.com so that we can discuss your gallery and ideas.
8. INTERIOR DESIGNERS:
I absolutely love working with designers! Email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your ideas so that we can work together to create a beautiful piece for your client.
WHO ACTUALLY OWNS THE IMAGE?
I retain all rights to all artwork I create. This includes the rights to the image of sold & commissioned original paintings. I retain the right to make REPRODUCTIONS OF ANY AND ALL ARTWORK I CREATE UNLESS THE COLLECTOR HAS PURCHASED THE FULL OR PARTIAL RIGHTS TO THE ARTWORK (this is in addition to purchasing the original).
The Collector or Buyer may not reproduce the artwork in any way without written permission.
If the artwork in your home or business is featured in a magazine or other media I only ask for credit (and congratulations! that means your home is a magical place).
When you purchase an original painting you, the collector, have the right to display the artwork in your home or business as well as pass down to your family as part of your estate, but the artwork may not be resold or reproduced without my written permission.
PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN PURCHASING FULL OR PARTIAL RIGHTS TO YOUR PAINTING.
Some collectors chose to purchase my right to reproduce the artwork to ensure it will never become a print. I am totally happy to discuss that with you.
Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have additional questions. I am excited to meet you.
