Shipping Information

Please note that all original art and prints ship from Ballarat, Victoria, Australia.

SHIPPING OF ORIGINAL ART WORK

Because of drying time, varnishing and a slew of other operational reasons in my studio, it may take up to two weeks for us to package and dispatch your work to you.  Transit time will vary according to where your painting is travelling to.  

All gallery-wrapped canvases up to a size of 20 x 30 inches will be shipped in-tact both in Australia and overseas.  Paintings over this size going to an Austrlaian destination will mostly be shipped as is, but will need to be assessed on a case by case basis.

Larger works on canvas over 20 x 30 Inches will be removed from their stretcher bars and shipped rolled in a sturdy tube.   This happens for two reasons: 

1) It is far safer for a large painting to travel this way (yes, I have experienced the heartbreak paintings being damaged in transit).  

2) It is by far the most cost effective way to ship large works.  The money you will save on shipping will more than cover the cost of having it re-stretched by your framer. 

SHIPPING COSTS

Shipping costs are calculated at the checkout according to package weight and distance and plus packaging materials.  On the odd occasion where the calculation is inaccurate (as shipping costs often change without our knowledge), we may need to contact you via email to arrange additional payment.
