“I love the artwork but am not sure how it would look in my room, or if it will fit?”
I can help with that. If you would like to send me a photo of your room with the measurements and where you are thinking you might like to hang the painting, I can make an insitu photo with the artwork on your wall, so you can see how it would look. If you are local, I am happy to visit your home with the painting so we can see how it would work in your space, and with any other paintings you have in the same area.
“I love that piece but it is outside of my budget do you offer a payment plan?”
I do offer a payment plan through Zip Pay and you can spread your payments over 4 monthly instalments. Art is an investment, however your painting will give you a lifetime of pleasure.
“I would really like this painting in my lounge area, but don’t think my husband will agree to it, he will think botanicals are too girly and only for bedrooms, how can I show him it will work?”
This comes up with partners sometimes, however I find when they see the painting in situ and what a fabulous statement it makes they realize botanicals are not just for bedrooms, after all we have flowers and plants in many rooms in our homes. I can also show photos of botanical artworks in other homes to show how they look and work with many different style homes.
“The painting I like is not the right size for the space where I need it, how can I get one to fit?”
A commission would be the perfect solution to this problem. I will work with you on the size, color and design to create a unique bespoke artwork for your room. I will keep in touch during the painting process with photographic updates on how it is progressing. You will get the opportunity to make small changes at this stage.
“I love the painting, but would really like a different type of frame is this possible?”
I can arrange for other framing options, we can discuss what you have in mind and what would suit the artwork, I can then get a quotation from my framer, alternatively you can have it framed by yourself by your local framer.
“I live in another State is the shipping going to add very much to the cost?”
Shipping is free Australia wide.
“I am overseas do you ship internationally and what is the cost?”
I do ship internationally, the cost depends on the size of the painting, the weight and destination, individual quotes are given. You can rest assured the artworks are packed by professionals and shipped via trusted couriers. The canvas can also be taken off the frame, rolled and sent in a tube, then you can have it re-stretched by your local framer. This is an economical way of sending your artwork.
“What if I receive the painting and change my mind?”
We do not offer refunds for a change of mind.
What if I receive the painting and it is damaged?
If the parcel arrives damaged, please do not open it straight away, please take photographs of the damaged packaging and send to firstname.lastname@example.org When signing for the delivery you should note on the drivers docket that the parcel has arrived damaged, and make sure the driver signs against the notation.
“Out of all the different subject matters you could paint, why did you stay with botanicals and pets?”
I just love the ever changing botanical landscape, and am intrinsically drawn to paint large scale blooms to captivate, that inspire reflection on how the fragile blooms represent the cycle of life, from bud, to blossom to petals wilting and falling I love the dramatic shapes and textures in nature
I also love animals they bring so much joy into our lives, they don’t judge us, they love us unconditionally, are loyal and you are never alone if you have a pet in the house.
Why do you mainly paint in oil?
I love the creamy richness of oil, the depth of color you can achieve, the slower drying time than with acrylic. I use water mixable oils, they are the same as a traditional oil paint as far as the paint on the canvas looks, but you can clean up without toxic chemicals which I prefer not to breath in.
Have another question?
Please do not hesitate to email or call and I will be happy to answer any queries you have.
I saw some of Wendy's art on line and was very taken with it. We bought The
Shallow Shoal & Rock and Shoal from Wendy which are marine inspired ink on
aluminum panel pieces. Wendy got them framed for us and they look
spectacular. I see these pieces daily and they always give me great joy. I love the
vibrant colours and the fine detail. Wendy is a talented artist across a variety of
mediums, she is a pleasure to deal with - very helpful. Look forward to seeing
and maybe owning more of her beautiful work.
I visited Wendy's studio last as part of the Noosa Open Studios trail and
purchased a set of her beautiful cards. Just as I was about to leave her
magnificent painting 'Gum Nut Alley' caught my eye. It is so beautiful, calming
and serene, I thought I just had to have it. Luckily, my husband loves it too. It
takes quite a large wall space and we look at it every night when relaxing. It fits
so well in our house that is surrounded by greenery and wide vistas.
Look at the incredible painting of our Chocolate Lab, Byron, by Wendy. When we first caught a glimpse of it we thought it was a photograph! The detail is incredible. Over the moon with it.
We are thrilled to have Archie hanging in our homes and we get heaps of comments from our visitors of what great likeness and they initially think it’s a photo and not a painting of Archie
I have now two of Wendy's pieces, one from her exquisite floral collection, the
detail, the brush strokes, it is so lifelike I almost attempt to smell the painting
expecting a floral scent to waft pass. My next piece is completely different as
Wendy explores a new style, more eclectic and abstract which I also love for the
boldness and the colours. Amazing art, well priced with a bit of Wendy herself in
each one. Thank you Wendy.
