FAQs

HOW DO I BUY AN ORIGINAL? Go to my online shop HERE, pick your new original, and check out. I release new pieces a several times a year. I usually announce new collections on my email list first, then on social media and then to the general public. To be first to see new works by getting on the email list sign up HERE.

DO YOU SHIP INTERNATIONALLY? I do. The checkout should work the same as any other order. If you are interested in a large original or commission I often suggest using Genie canvas or shipping in a rolled tube and you stretch it once it arrives.

DO YOU DO CUSTOM COMMISSIONS? I do! Custom commissions are very fun projects and it is always my pleasure and joy to work with interior designers, architects, or private collectors to craft an original custom piece for their space. Custom commissions must be a minimum of 18”x18.” There is always a waitlist for custom commissions, depending on the season or what is already in my pipeline custom commissions take anywhere from 1-5 months. Custom commissions are a first come first serve basis. If you need a piece in a rush, a rush fee will be charged. To inquire about a custom commission click HERE. 

WOULD YOU DO AN EXACT REPLICA OF A PREVIOUS PIECE? No, I will never create an exact replica of one of my previous works. It is boring and completely takes any creativity and joy out of the process. I’m happy to make pieces that are a similar style and flavor to previous works, but it will never be an exact replica.

DO YOU TEACH LESSONS? I no longer offer private lessons, but I do offer workshops from time to time as well as private parties. Private parties are very custom, bespoke events, if you’re interested in a private party please send me an email.

DO YOU DO CUSTOM SIZE PRINTS? I do not. I do not have the capacity to do a custom print for all the people who ask, but I do offer custom commissioned originals.

WOULD YOU DONATE TO MY SHOOL OR CHAITY?  I donate a specific number of pieces and dollars a year to charity. I only support human rights organizations and specific organizations that go to food, education, clothing, and resources for underprivileged and truly suffering people around the world. To see if your charity qualifies feel free to email me.

RETURNS: Every order, commission, and sale is handled with care and as much clarity and transparency as possible. I do not handle the manufacturing and sale of my printed goods due to time constraints, all of those items may be returned directly to the manufacturer, Society6. Originals and custom commissions are final sale unless there has been damage during shipping in which case you can either have a full refund, or I can recreate a similar work or repair the piece if there is only minor damage. All custom commissions go through rigorous consultations and photographs sent to the client before shipping to ensure any changes that need to be made cane be made before shipment.   My goal is for you to be completely thrilled with your purchase!  Please take the time to read descriptions carefully and the check colors on multiple screens if you are concerned about color variations.  I try my best to represent the colors and tones in my work honestly and clearly.

INTERIOR DESIGNERS: Interior designers are some of my best friends! They always do the best job at ensuring my pieces are cherished and styled to reach their maximum potential. If you’d like to get connected and on my list of preferred interior designers to collaborate please email me at info@christineolmstead.com I do not allow my works to be marked up for resale.

PRESS:  I love working with bloggers, podcasters, editors, stylists, and writers. I’m inspired by so many of you and your work that collaborating is always something I’m down for.  If you have any questions, please email me. info@christineolmstead.com
