Preserve YOUR special memento with a painting

How do you keep the memento given to you by someone you love who just passed away? The locket that mom gave to you as a teenager. Or the baby blanket that looked so cute on your child when they were a baby.Or the picture of the first hibiscus bloom that dad planted in the yard.

Sadly, I don’t own any mementos that remind me of my late parents. And that’s the driving force for me to help others preserve their special mementos.

With a realistic painting, you can tell a story that is unique to you. Imagine being able to relay the story of an object dear to you, to your children, grandchildren, or even a group of close friends. You’ll be able to tell them why the painting is so special to you.

How will you preserve your special memento given to you by your loved ones?

Let’s get started today!

Collage of Past Work

"Your style is tremendously refined.  There is a sense of love and joy radiating from  your drawings, as well as peace.  Your art is truly uplifting for the heart and soul,  admiring and contemplating the beauty of God’s magnificent creation that you aim to express in your amazing artistic work. Your art is an ode to Beauty."

FAQ

Can I commission any subject?
As Siti no longer does portraits of humans and animals, there are a few limitations to what subjects she accepts for commission work. Generally, Siti paints all kinds of subjects. We encourage you to take a look at her work in the Gallery and Shop sections. But if you’re not sure if a subject you desire to be painted will be accepted by Siti, email a photo attachment of the desired subject. Siti will let you know if she can paint the requested subject within 24 hours.
How do I make payment?

Payment for commissioned works can be made via Paypal or direct bank transfer.

Additionally, we will email you separate invoices. One invoice will be emailed for payment of 50% of the commission fee, which is due after signing the commission agreement. Another invoice will be sent, for the remaining 50%, which is due after the work is complete.

What’s your refund policy?
All sales are final after the initial painting has been approved. You will have a chance during the commission process to confirm that the painting matches your vision.
What’s your return policy?

No returns are allowed after the initial painting has been approved. All purchases of commissioned works are final.

We’ll do our best to ensure the painting is packaged with the utmost of care. However, if it arrives damaged, due to shipping, you must report the damage, with photographic proof, within 3 business days of product delivery.

What’s your delivery procedure and what shipping carrier do you use?

If you’re local, you’re welcome to stop by the studio and pick up your painting. Simply email us to make an appointment. Otherwise, your finished painting will be shipped via USPS.
