Frequently Asked Questions
How do I purchase your work?
For prints and originals on this site, visit any of the galleries in my portfolio and you will be guided step-by-step through the process of selecting the size, medium, style finish (including gorgeous custom framing options!) you would like. My website includes a very robust and interactive shopping experience, so be sure to take advantage of all the order tools and options available, especially the Wall Preview and Live Preview AR tools!
What is your packaging policy?
What is your shipping policy?
Originals ship out in 1-3 business days, unless I am on retreat and in silence in which case I'm not online and won't know about your order until I emerge. In that case, the shipping is delayed a maximum of 7 days. I will send you the tracking number after your painting is shipped.
Prints are shipped by my amazing printing partner in northern California. The total time from order to delivery ranges from 5 to 10 business days, depending on the speed of shipping you choose. You will receive a tracking number via email when your print is shipped.
What is your return & exchange policy?
When I was working for Crystal Palace Yarns, one of the owners once told me you learn the true quality of a business in how they deal with problems. I have found this to be resoundingly true. As such, I offer 100% satisfaction guarantee.
I want my art and your experience of acquiring it to bring you deep joy. If for any reason you are dissatisfied with your purchase, you can send it back to me for a full refund.
If your package arrives damaged, please refuse the package so that it automatically comes back to me or to my print partner. If the package is left for you before you see the damage, please photograph what it looks like upon arrival and send me those photos so I can begin the insurance claims. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.

Do you teach painting and/or meditation?
Yes I do! I've been facilitating retreats since 2009 and even made a book called Hosting Transformation. I've worked intensively in California, Vermont, Italy, Austria, Germany, and Poland. I teach and lead retreats via my life-as-art social sculpture, the Art Monastery and in collaboration with San Francisco Zen Center. Most of my retreats are about some interplay between meditation and artmaking. Sometimes I focus on painting, but generally I offer retreats that engage the widest range of the forms creativity can take. You can find out about my latest offerings on the Events page and via my newsletter (scroll down to sign up).
What is this Art Monastery thing?
I founded the Art Monastery in 2008 as a monumental life-as-art social sculpture. It takes the form of an intentional community of artists who apply monastic technologies to artmaking. Currently, the Art Monastery is located in Springfield, Vermont. Four of us comprise the core team. We live & work at the Art Monastery year-round. From May to October we run artist residencies, worktrade programs, and various weeklong and weekend intensives. Come and visit! Learn more at the Art Monastery page or at artmonastery.org.
What is this Mirror thing?
I began collaborating with Gerry McCulloch in 2015 when Gerry came to Art Monastery Italia to participate in a program. Gerry is an astounding cinematographer and professor at Goldsmiths College in London. We have co-created Mirror as a moving image portraiture project steeped in social sculpture. We film strangers while they sustain silent eye contact. Learn more on the Mirror page, on a previous exhibition page Transpires, or at mirrorproject.art.
