OPTIONAL PAYMENT PLANS
Although my studio remains open for business, as of June 1, 2016, I am not offering the option of any of my extended payment plans. I am currently in the process of selling my home and studio to move to another state. I am hoping to be relocated by January 1, 2017 and am anticipating being in place considerably before then. I will still be selling and shipping work out of my studio during the foreseeable future, but I will not be in a position to extend any of the payment plans until my studio is settled again. When that happens, I will once again be able to offer the payment plans and will remove this message. Thanks for your patience.
THREE MONTH CREDIT CARD PLAN
I have a payment plan available that allows you to purchase a piece of my artwork and extend payments over a three month period. It is simple, there is a fee of $12 for the service and, unlike a layaway plan, you are able to take the artwork home with you at the time of purchase.
It works like this: You select the piece or pieces of my work that you would like to purchase. I charge your credit card for one-third of the total amount. I write your credit card information on my copy of the receipt and you take the artwork home or have it shipped to you.
I will then charge your card again in a month for another third of the amount, and once again in the month following that for the final one-third payment. I will mail you a copy of the credit card receipt each time I charge your card.
I also offer a layaway plan. This plan is more flexible than the credit card plan in that after your initial deposit, you may make payments in any amount that suits you and take more time paying off the piece. You may take up to 6 months to pay off the balance. If you need more time, you will need to make a special arrangement with me at the start as I have limited space in my studio to store layaway items.
Payments on the layaway plan may be made by cash, check or money order. I do not accept credit cards for the layaway plan.
I will keep your artwork safe in my studio until you have paid it off in full, and then, will either ship the work to you or arrange for you to pick it up - whichever method we have agreed upon at the time of purchase. There is no service charge to use this plan.
I am a collector as well and appreciate a little creative assistance from time to time when acquiring a valued piece of art...I hope you will these plans useful.
