a thank you to the earth, which I use to paint my heart.
"Dear dirt, I am sorry I slighted you, I thought that you were only the background for the leading characters—the plants and animals and human animals. It’s as if I had loved only the stars and not the sky which gave them space in which to shine. Subtle, various, sensitive, you are the skin of our terrain, you’re our democracy. When I understood I had never honored you as a living equal, I was ashamed of myself, as if I had not recognized a character who looked so different from me, but now I can see us all, made of the same basic materials— cousins of that first exploding from nothing— in our intricate equation together. O dirt, help us find ways to serve your life, you who have brought us forth, and fed us, and who at the end will take us in and rotate with us, and wobble, and orbit."
The hanging gear installed to each piece differs by weight, size, and frame type. We install the best quality gear for each work, and quality check by installing the art on our studio walls.
If the painting you are purchasing is going to be hung on a surface that needs a particular type of gear, please reach out so we can make that happen for you.
Our shipping rates are pre-set and determined by size & weight.
Our art is professionally wrapped and shipped by our local fine art shipper who has decades of experience working with fine art and sculpture. *Hi Mike*
Having a reliable source to keep tabs on our art while in transit is simply the best.
We ship every painting ground (unless upgraded to 3-day air) - UPS ground shipping typically takes 3-7 business days.
The paintings in this collection are "ready to ship" meaning once we receive your order, we will start our secure packing process.
We can typically wrap the painting ready to ship within 1-3 business days!
Our frames are uniquely crafted to complement and complete each individual piece, tying the entire vision together. Some works have pre-planned frames that we use as a focal point, and inspiration.
We have worked with clients who love a piece but need a frame with a different stain. Please reach out if the frame does not work with the space you are planning to fill, we are more than happy to work together to ensure the best fit possible. May it be a new frame, or change of stain.
from inquiry to delivery and everything in between, our goal is to cultivate and nurture a personal, and stress-free experience while working with us.
please reach out if you are interested in learning more about a piece, or to set up a complimentary virtual consultation where we can navigate what would work best in your space by creating a custom rendering. all you'll need is a few photos of the wall/ living area you are desiring art, and we will do the rest.
thank you for choosing to support emerging artists x
