Answers to some common questions about my art
Q: Why isn't my art or wood frame "perfect"?
A: Perfection isn't everything.
My art is handmade; imperfections are part of their being and character. My art is meant to be handled, and in doing so, you'll impart your own imperfections, making it truly yours.
If you need absolute, unwavering perfection… then my art is probably not for you. And that's okay. :-)
Q: Your art looks tiny in the store pictures, so I'm having trouble understanding what size it actually is.
A: I know! One of the most common comments I get from people who buy my art is: "The art is so much smaller than I thought it would be!"
So I've created a downloadable and printable "size guide" to help. You can download it here: MJS.ART Printable Art Size Guide
Q: I like one of your pieces, and I want to buy it, but I want to change the frame style and/or color; can I?
A: It depends on what you're asking for, but I'm open to customizing an order. Note that if I customize something for you, it's not returnable or refundable.
Q: I saw a piece (on Instagram) that I want to buy, but it's no longer in your shop.
A: It's very likely the piece has been sold. As I rarely recreate pieces or make multiple versions of the same piece, I highly recommend buying a piece when you see it.
Q: Do you take commissions?
A: My general answer is "not right now", but the more correct answer is "Sometimes; it depends."
Abstract art is incredibly subjective; it's not for everyone, and that's okay. But it's important that you appreciate abstract art for what it is, and know that what you asked for and expect might not be exactly what I draw for you.
I create art during my free time. That means I don't (and can't) adhere to a schedule or commit to a deadline for delivering work; it gets done when I have a chance to work on it.
If you're okay with that… let's talk. :-)
Q: I'm interested in carrying your art in my shop/store/boutique; are you open to that idea?
A: Yes I am!
