frequently asked questions

How do I display my new Art Print?

I highly encourage framing!  They look incredibly beautiful framed, and it will help to protect your fresh artwork from wear and dust.  I do not currently offer framing from my studio, but here are my recommendations! 

  • Take it to your local framer. They are generally very talented and can give suggestions that not only work well with your art, but your space as well. 

  • Simply Framed or Framebridge are two online services that allow you to pick your frame online. You ship them the art, they frame + return to you, ready to hang!

  • Shop at a favorite retailer for the perfect frame to match your style. My favorites are Anthropologie, Target, West Elm, Michaels, and Pottery Barn. Most of the time, these frames come with a mat...

 

Do NOT forget the mat! For real. Unless you are going to “gallery wrap” the canvas, artwork needs a mat (negative space) to really let the work shine and feel elevated. If you plan to wrap your canvas remember that you will lose 2-3 inches, so order a size or two larger than you intend to display.

 

How do you print?

I am so lucky to have my partner in life, my husband, Dan, as my printer through his student print shop enterprise in Cambria, California. Dan is a high-school teacher who has transformed classrooms on his campus to teach creative entrepreneurship to his students. Over the last five years he has built a state-of-the-art recording studio, film editing studio, and a print studio. All of my prints are sent to the Coastin’ Print Studios where Dan teaches his high school students everything about how to run a business from customer service and design, to invoicing and bookkeeping. 100% of the profits made at Coastin’ Print Studios goes directly to the students in the form of college tours, state of the art equipment to develop 21st century skillsets in the creative economy, and programming that encourages the marriage of creativity and entrepreneurship. 

All art is created digitally on my iPad via Procreate. It is sized, always 300dpi or higher, and printed from a professional commercial latex printer with pigmented ink on matte, high quality artist canvas. This meets all “giclee” print standards but is not a true giclee print; please reach out if you would like a true giclee print on canvas and I would be happy to print that for you from a different local printer, additional fees will apply (20-25%+). Unsure of what size you need? Take a look at my Print Size Guide where each size is paired with their respective aspect ratio.

 

How do you ship?

  • All prints are handled with care and packaged beautifully in acid free paper.

  • Prints 8x10 and smaller are mailed in a sturdy flat mailer while prints 16x20 and larger are mailed in a thick tube.

  • Shipped via USPS 1st Class Mail or Priority Mail (usually arrives within 1-3 days within the US). You will generally receive your print 7-10 business days after purchasing. 

International Shipments

  • Shipping costs are calculated at checkout based on package weight and distance. If there is any discrepancy -/+ I will let you know via email.

Shipping costs cover fees, packaging supplies, time, labor, and storage.  

 

Do you take commissions?

Not at this time! When/if I do, I will announce to my Email list, then on Instagram so be sure to subscribe to my mailing list and follow on IG. 

 

Do you teach classes or workshops?

My goal is to see what the interest level is and go from there! If there’s something specific you’d like to learn, please reach out and I’ll add it to the list! 

 

What is your return policy?

Every order, collaboration, and sale is handled with care and transparency. Every step of the process is either done or monitored by me, the artist. My goal is for you to be completely over-the-moon with your purchase!  Because of this, all sales are final except in certain situations.  Please reach out.

Before purchasing, please take your time reading descriptions carefully, and to check the colors on multiple screens (computer, phone, etc.) if you have concerns about color variations.  I try my best to represent the colors and tones in my work on multiple platforms as honestly as I can!
