Frequently Asked Questions
Here you can find answers to common questions about my work. If your question isn't found below, you can always contact me HERE.
All specimens used in my work are collected by me or by colleagues and friends who are out doing field work. Everything is from various bay systems and beaches along the Texas coast.
No. Due to the fragility of the original algal presses, I have chosen to have the originals professionally photographed and digitized then printed on archival cold press paper. This method maintains the vibrant color of the original presses and prevents issues with degradation that the originals face.
All listings in this shop are for prints of the originals. Originals are available in certain retailers on a local basis, contact me or follow my social media for announcements of original release locations.
I may be able to do custom pieces depending on the species and size requested. Please contact me to discuss.
I am able to add a personal note attached to any print. Gift wrapping is not available, however, orders are wrapped in tissue paper, tied with twine, and a custom gift note can be attached to them upon mailing if that section is completed at checkout.
Frames are not included at this time. The prints are done in common sizes though so you should find it simple to frame them in your home. For your order, you will receive just the print itself packaged with a rigid backerboard in a sealed plastic sleeve.
I work with two US-based printing companies to have my artwork printed on the pillow covers, tea towels, and coasters.
The Salt Botanics jewelry collection is a collaboration between myself and local artist Samantha with Lavender & Lee. I provide the pressed algae and floral specimens and she works her magic to put them in resin pendants, add gemstones, and assembles the necklaces.
I currently ship to the contiguous United States and its territories, Canada, and select international destinations.
My current processing time is 1-3 business days and I ship via USPS with various shipping options at checkout. Most US orders will be received within 7 business days. Please see my Shipping and Returns section for more information.
