Frequently Asked Questions

Art

Is this digital or traditional?

I worked in traditional mediums for years before I began exploring digital painting in 2013. Due to a chronic illness most of my large work is now digital. I still work in traditional mediums, but those pieces are often small and sell quickly.

Most of my digital art is created using Photoshop and a Wacom Intuos. I sometimes also use Corel Painter and Mandelbulb 3D (a fractal generating program).

My traditional work is most often in graphite or watercolor. Originals are sold through The Changeling Artist Collective, Conventions and Gallery Shows.

Where's your Bird Whisperer Art?

My art for the Bird Whisperer Project is a mix of sketches, drawings and finished paintings. Some pieces are NFS. If it's a digital painting, you'll find prints in my store. The best way to purchase an original is to follow our page and contact me. We post new art on the last Wednesday of the month.


Prints

What is the difference between Open Edition and Limited Edition Prints?

All of my prints are produced by a professional printer using archival quality inks and paper. Limited Editions are numbered/signed. Some are printed on Somerset Velvet, a fine art paper, while others are printed on archival Lustre paper.

Open Editions are printed with the same inks, but on a standard matte paper. I sell open edition prints for all of my art at conventions, but you will find a few in my shop.

I recommend framing my prints to protect them and prolong their life. You should refrain from placing them in direct sunlight, heat or humid environments.

Limited Edition Canvas Prints

I also have very limited canvas prints of my digital paintings. These are available framed through the conventions I attend.


Shop Orders

How long will it take to receive my order?

Orders are shipped in 7-10 days. Once shipped most domestic orders take anywhere from 2 to 10 business days to arrive depending on the efficiency of your local postal service.

Do you accept orders placed outside the US?

Unfortunately, I no longer accept international orders from my web shop. International shipping has become so expensive that in some cases the shipping fees cost more than the print.

Collectors outside the US can still purchase my art through the Changeling Artist Collective's auctions. If you're looking for prints, I suggest signing up for InPrnt's newsletter. They often run promotions for free shipping worldwide. You can see my InPrnt Gallery here.

What if my order arrives damaged?

If your order arrives damaged please contact me within 14 days. You can send photos of damaged artwork and packaging to makepeace.arts@gmail.com. Prints can be replaced!
