INFORMATION REGARDING PURCHASES OF PAINTINGS OR PRINTS
All of my paintings and prints will come with a Certificate of Authenticity. This certificate includes the title, name of the artist, year created; type of media used as well as the dimensions of the work and the certificate will be signed and dated.
The certificate will contain a copyright declaration. While the purchaser will own the painting or print, I retain all copyright of any works (including commission work) which includes the right to reproduce or replicate the work in any form (scans, prints, notecards, duplicate paintings, coasters, placemats etc.). No part of my work may be reproduced, photographed or transmitted in any form without prior permission in writing from me. For information on Copyright law for Canada please see the following link. http://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/cipointernet-internetopic.nsf/eng/home
A purchaser may request that the work will be a one-time original with no reproductions or replications of the work by the artist in the exact style of the original work. The artist reserves the right to paint the original subject in a different setting (different background, angle, colours etc.). In this case, the purchaser will pay a premium of five times the original cost of the works.
For Limited Edition prints only a certain number of prints (they will be numbered) will be made and no more replications will be made thereafter.
For non-commission work – item must be fully paid for prior to shipping. The cost of shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. You will be notified of the cost of shipping when it is ready to ship. Once the shipping cost is paid the item will be shipped.
For prints I also require a non-refundable pre-payment of the cost of the print upfront before I place my order at the printers. The cost of shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. You will be notified of the cost of shipping when it is ready to ship. Once the shipping cost is paid the item will be shipped.
