Any sale is a sale of the object only and does not convey the copyright to the artwork. We do, of course, allow you to use the image of your artwork fairly for non-profit purposes. Note that we may sell posters or other merchandise using the image of your artwork. If you would like to purchase the copyright to any particular work, then please contact us.

We use good quality material and treat all artwork to ensure longevity. However, the artworks we sell are made from perishable material and are fragile in nature. Please take good care of your unique piece of art to ensure you can enjoy it for many years to come. The Smithsonian Museum Conservation Institute has a good writeup on how to look after your artwork.
