Do you accept commissioned works?

Yes, I'm happy to speak with you and explore what you have in mind.  Works can be inspired by many things: a favorite picture, color, even an idea. Let's start a conversation!


Where do you ship?

Shipping is available world wide and is billed at actual costs (packaging, insurance and shipping). Clients in Southern California may have works hand delivered for a nominal fee.


How long does it take to get my artwork?

Shipping times are determined by the carrier.  All pieces are shipped insured and signature required upon delivery. Once your piece is packaged and at the carrier, I will provide you with tracking information.

Can I change the frame?

Works listed are sold as integrated pieces.


Do you sell prints?

My artwork does not translate well into digital prints due to the dimensional nature of the copper as well as the range of colors.


Can I visit your studio?

Clients interested in a commissioned work or picking up a purchased piece are more than welcome to come see the studio.

Hanging your artwork

Each piece comes ready to hang on your wall.  For larger pieces, I suggest using two nails/hooks in order to ensure that it's secure.


Cleaning your artwork

Art gets dusty!  Every so often, take a soft, damp cloth and gently wipe the surface of the painting.  Hard to reach nooks and crannies can be cleaned with a cotton swab.  Never us soaps or chemical cleaners on the artwork as it may cause permanent damage.  They they are sealed with an isolation coat and then with an archival UV varnish to prevent fading and yellowing and to protect from dust


Choosing a location in your home or office

Fine art should never be exposed to the elements.  It should be placed on a wall away from direct sunlight. Exposure to direct sunlight will cause fading over time.  Ideally it should not be  in the airflow of an HVAC vent.  I finish my art with high gloss or satin UV varnish.  This may cause "hot spots" or light reflections if the works have spotlights on them.  I suggest using soft white or indirect lighting.

Authenticity

Each piece comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.  This watermarked certificate indicates that it is an original work of art.  It will also list any shows or exhibitions in which the work was featured. It is important that the buyer keep this as it will allow a dealer or collector to authenticate the piece.
