Pricing and Availability
In-stock books are generally shipped in 1-3 business days. Out-of-stock books can be backordered and are typically processed in 10 business days.
Limited edition photographs are generally shipped in 7 business days. Oversized artworks require 10 business days. If there is anything unusual with your order you will promptly receive an email with the details. Ask me for shipping details when you place your order.
As an independent artist managing all facets of my business, I know prompt processing is important to you and strive to process your order swiftly. Please understand I am only one person. Business travel, art fairs, and other circumstances can affect processing times. In some cases, processing may take 10 business days or longer. Whenever possible, I will post foreseeable delays on the site. If there are unforeseen delays, I will keep customers informed.
Although I take measures to ensure that the website reflects accurate product information and pricing, sometimes an error can appear on the site. I cannot be responsible for a mistyped price that would cause me to lose money. In case of such an error, I will either give you a full refund or process the order at my loss.
Particular impression numbers (e.g. 4/10) cannot be assured. The impression number shown is an example. Artworks are sold on a first-come basis. Due to sales through multiple dealers, availability information may be delayed by one business day, sometimes longer. If a limited edition photograph is sold out, any over-subscribed orders will be refunded in full.
My philosophy: pack well, ship once.
Limited edition archival photographs arrive domestically within 3 days of shipment.
Books are shipped domestically via USPS and typically arrive in less than a week (48 United States) after shipment. Expedited US shipping delivers books in 2-3 days. International delivery times depend on destination. Books are double-packed with cardboard and bubble wrap.
Some orders may require a signature for delivery.
100% Satisfaction Guaranteed when you Buy Artwork
I will provide five-star products and service or refund your payment. Any artwork or book may be returned for a refund within 14 days. Exchanges may be made within a period of 30 days. Artwork must be in its original packaging and the same condition as it arrived. Get in touch prior to making returns.
To make this unconditional guarantee work for both of us, kindly zoom in on the artwork images to inspect it in detail prior to purchase.
Environmental and Social Responsibility
I strive to constantly reduce the environmental impact of my operations and to operate in a socially responsible manner. Social responsibility includes fair pay, gender equity, and a workplace free from discrimination. I choose services, vendors, and materials that reflect this commitment. In cases where options are less than satisfactory, I lobby industry to improve what they offer.
I'll treat you the way I would want to be treated.
I am generally available from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM Eastern time (US, UTC -5) Monday through Friday via text, phone, and email. I will respond to emails as quickly as possible. Customer support page.
