Frequently Asked Questions

What medium do you paint in?

I mostly paint with acrylics. On occasion I will add ink, pastel or some other medium, and a piece may be listed as mixed media. Details are included with each listing.


Can I preview art on my wall?

Yes! If you’ve chosen a favourite but not sure how it’ll look, email photos of your space including the wall and surrounding décor/furniture to hello@theresa-edwards.com.

Take one photo directly in front of the wall and another from an angle. Please provide the width of a nearby piece of furniture or object.

I’ll mock-up the painting onto your wall so you can preview it in your room!


Is artwork ready to hang?

Most often, yes. Each listing will say if a piece is ready to hang, Paintings on canvas, cradled panel or framed paintings are ready to hang. Unframed paintings on flat panel or paper are not.


What do you mean by “panel”?

Some paintings have been painted on artist-grade wood panels (boards) made from high-quality birch or aspen, and sealed and gessoed for longevity. Flat panels are either 1/8″ or 1/4″ thick. Cradled panels have a wood riser that pushes them out from the wall like a canvas. Most of my cradled panels are 1.75″ deep.


What currency are the prices?

Prices on this website are listed in Canadian dollars.


How long until my shipment arrives?

Art will be packaged and shipped within 1 week of purchase, given that it’s varnished and dry. Larger works may take longer if they require custom-built packaging (you will be notified if this is the case).

Shipping times vary depending on your location. Artwork is shipped from Kelowna, BC, Canada.
