my credit card information secure?
PayPal is the authorized payment processor
for this site and MANY others. This gives all of us peace
of mind about secure payment processing: I worry about the
art, and keeping costs down, they worry about security and
you don't have to worry about giving your credit card information
to a complete stranger! Want to know more? Click
I hold personal privacy
issues as extremely important. Any information gathered by
this site is used for contact and delivery purposes only.
these the same prices I would see in shows or galleries?
Not always. Prices listed on this website are
wholesale, direct from the artist/studio! Galleries normally
charge a 30-50% commission on displayed artwork, shows often
have fees attached, etc. and these business costs are normally
recouped/added onto the price of the art to some extent. The
website is an online extension of the artist studio and I
am the webmaster so there is no middleman involved. There
is no corporate sponsorship here and your support is appreciated.
BIGtime :) SUPPORT THE ARTS!
long until my order is shipped out?
In-stock orders are shipped out within one
business day (after clearance of funds). You will receive
a confirmation email upon purchase and another when the item
is shipped out.
there a guarantee on merchandise?
PRINTS damaged in shipping will
be replaced, just let me know what happened and I'll get a
new one out to you pronto. In some instances return of the
original material may be requested.
ARTWORK will be packaged VERY well and insured--so we're
both protected :) Every monitor produces variations in color,
so the studio offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee on original
artwork -- you may return the shipment (insured and undamaged)
within ten days of receipt. Please contact the studio prior
to return for an authorization number.
do I know this is an original piece of artwork?
Each original piece of artwork is signed by
the artist and comes with a certificate of authenticity also
signed by the artist. Your information, as the new owner of
the piece, will be included on the certificate. This will
verify transfer of ownership of the piece. Ownership of the
copyright remains with the artist (unless arranged otherwise).
copyright ownership transfer along with ownership of the artwork?
No. The artist always retains ownership of
the copyright unless special, specific arrangements are made
to purchase all or part of that copyright. Actual ownership
of the original piece of art is what is for sale in the galleries.

"Scooter My Daisy heads"?
There was a commercial on TV a couple of years
ago: this man kept trying to communicate with people. He used
phrases like: "twice the octopi," "dimple the
pudding," "scooter my daisyheads." The words
he used were very ordinary, just in a different format from
the norm. No one understood him, no matter how hard he tried
to communicate. Then a Sprint salesman handed him a phone
and SUDDENLY EVERYONE understood what he was saying. (I wish
it were that easy <roflmao>.) The symbolism seemed appropriate
this artwork on exhibit somewhere?
Occassionally. All shows are announced on the "Exhibitions" page :)
you accept web design commissions?
here to view the online portfolios, check out prices
for website design and more.
you accept fine art commissions?
Not really, but I don't want to say "never."
If it were really interesting and/or extremely lucrative then
maybe... but probably not :) Fine art is a very private thing for me. Commercial
graphics are another matter entirely (see above answer <lol>).
is the studio located?
St. Petersburg, Florida -- a.k.a. the Tampa
Bay area or central Florida. Click
