Customer Reviews

When you buy commission a painting online, you want to know you can trust the artist’s integrity. This page contains both my personal standards for customer service and quotes from people who have purchased my artwork.

My Customer Service Philosophy

  • I will endeavor to make a painting that looks just the way you want it.
  • I will communicate clearly and promptly.
    • I prefer email to phone conversations because it allows me to present you with images. It also gives you time to make decisions about artwork before responding. It is important to me to make promises I know I can keep. I typically respond to email within 24 hours of receiving a message.
  • I will expertly pack and ship your artwork. I wrap each package myself and use sturdy packing materials. You can trust your painting will arrive safely.

Customer Reviews & photos from art collectors

A collector’s review of a large, fluid floral painting that shipped across several states:

Beautiful, beautiful painting arrived in perfect condition, so carefully packed that a museum could not have done better. The website doesn’t do justice to how luminous and truly gorgeous Kirsten’s work is. You can order from her with absolute confidence.

Here is another collector who liked my packaging as well as the art itself:

This painting blew me away! The glossy finish is just stunning. It far exceeded my expectations, and Kirsten was wonderful to work with. It shipped quickly with first-rate packaging. I will definitely be buying more from her.

A collector’s review of a commissioned custom painting I made for her nursery:

“I found Kirsten on Etsy and fell in love with a painting that she had advertised for sale. I realized that the painting was much smaller than I wanted for my babies nursery, so I contacted her to see if she would be willing to paint something similar, but much larger. She immediately responded and was willing to do the job. Kirsten was very thorough with pricing options for various sizes as well as the shipping costs. Throughout the entire process she sent me pictures to make sure the painting was turning out the way I wanted. I was very pleased with how professional and trustworthy she presented herself. When I received the painting in the mail it was well packaged and was absolutely beautiful. It was better than I could have imagined!! I highly recommend her and will most likely be using her again in the future as I love her paintings!”

A first time collector who bought one of my poured agate paintings for her home wrote:

I received my poured painting today…all I can say is wow!! Absolutely beautiful. It’s so much more beautiful in person.

After using my “try it on your own wall” option, Judy wrote:

You’ve been so helpful. I really do appreciate your comments and suggestions. “Hanging” the picture put it in perspective.

Sometimes, collectors send me photos of my art in their homes or offices:

The recessed lighting picks up the textures well.
This art collector sent me an image of her custom textured abstract painting, in its new home in her lovely dining room.
