Frequently Asked Questions:
(and some not-so FAQ, but important nevertheless)
Q: Do you accept payment plans?
A: Yes, we can work out a payment plan for original works. Please contact me and we can get it done.
Q: Do you accept returns?
A: Yes, if you are not satisfied with your print or original painting within 30 days of receiving it, you may return it for a full refund, minus shipping, once I have received the returned item in new condition.
Q: Are you open to doing commissioned work?
A: Yes. I’d love to hear what you have in mind! Please contact me and we can discuss your ideas.
Q: How long will it take to receive my order?
A: Most paper prints are in stock and will generally ship out the same or next business day via USPS First Class, so they should arrive within a week of placing the order (US). If the print is not in stock, an additional week may be needed. Limited canvas prints are in stock so there is a good chance you may want to allow 2-3 weeks to receive a canvas print. Feel free to contact me in advance to find out if a specific print is in stock.
Q: Can you ship my canvas print not stretched but rather rolled in a tube?
A: Yes! Please contact me and we can arrange it. This is especially useful if you are outside the US. It will save you on shipping costs and probably in customs fees, if there are any.
Q: Do you ever use airbrush or digital media?
A: No, all my work is hand-painted with acrylics and brushes.
Q: Are you influenced by Salvador Dali?
A: Somewhat. His work had its most profound impact on me when I was in high school. His ability to create a dreamy, surreal landscape stuck with me, but I don’t often look at his work, surprisingly don’t own any books containing his work, and don’t draw direct inspiration from his work.
Q: What are you influenced or inspired by?
A: There is quite a bit of information on this throughout my website, including individual brief descriptions on each painting. But in a nutshell - nature. Initially I was taking inspiration from the images of Grey’s Anatomy, and soon after I branched off into other biological forms such as radiolarians and other marine life, microscopy, fungi, insects, patterns in nature such as a networking or branching pattern, and any other strange, intriguing form of nature. The 19th century illustrations from Ernst Haeckel have been a great source. There is endless inspiration out there!
