SHIPPING AND RETURNS POLICY
It's important to me that you are happy with the art you purchase! Once I confirm your payment, I will ship your artwork to you as soon as possible, making every effort to insulate the painting and package it securely. I will track the item upon shipment and you may contact me with questions about its arrival. Note that items shipped overseas may take approximately two weeks.
We will ship your art between 3-7 days of your purchase of a finished piece. (If your request falls around the holidays, please account for some extra time.) If we are unable to ship your art to you within the time frame above due to travel or other circumstances, we will post a notice on our home page.
Your art will be wrapped carefully and protected with cardboard, bubble wrap and cellophane to help prevent water damage. We will then place the wrapped art in either a padded mailer or sturdy cardboard box or tube, depending on the item being shipped.
We will ship your art to you with tracking and insurance. You will receive information about your package once we have shipped it.
• If you live outside of the UK, your artwork may be subject to additional duty and taxes your country charges on items exported to you from another country.
• If you have purchased your artwork from a country within the UK, there is a 14-day cooling off period during which you may decided to return the item for any reason and I will issue a refund. (The item must be in its original condition and packaged in the manner in which I shipped it — you may reuse the materials used to ship the piece to you if they are undamaged.) The shipping and insurance costs associated with returning an artwork are your responsibility.
• If you note any defects or significant discrepancies between the artwork I advertised and the product you received, you must report them to me within seven days of receiving the artwork. If a significant defect or discrepancy is reported to me within seven days, I will make all efforts to rectify the problem. If this is not possible, I will offer either a full or partial refund, depending on the issue.
• If the artwork is damaged in transit, please let me know immediately and email me photos of the damage so that I can file an insurance claim. You may then choose a replacement piece or I can issue you a refund (minus shipping costs).
• For countries outside of the UK: If you decide you don't want the artwork you receive, please notify me within 7 days of its arrival. Pack the item in the same manner I used to ship the work initially (you may reuse the packaging). Once I have received the item in perfect condition, you may choose another piece of equal or lesser value or I can issue you a refund (minus shipping costs).
When returning an artwork, please consider using a trackable shipping service to ensure the item reaches me.
Sales of commissioned work are final.
