If you don’t find the answer you are looking for or, if you have any trouble with your purchase, please contact me.
Why should I buy one of your paintings, drawings or prints?
Because you like it. And because you would like to show your support for what I do. Sadly, I can offer no guarantee that the work will incrementally grow in financial value over time or exponentially grow in financial value after my death.
How do you determine the value of your work?
Very good question. I generally apply a formula of €1.2 per square centimeter for oil paintings and €0.80 per square centimeter for drawings.
What if I receive the work and realize I don’t like it?
I want you to be totally satisfied with your purchase. If you are not, for whatever reason, no problem! If you wish to mail the artwork back and pursue a refund, please contact me at at tja at americanartistinrome dot com informing of your decision within 48 hours after receipt.
Then, ship the artwork back to me using the original packaging within 7 (seven) days of receiving it and, as soon as I have it back in the condition it was sent, I will refund your money via PayPal or money transfer (minus the original shipping expense). You can also decide to choose another artwork to replace it.
What if I see a work on your website gallery that I would like to have, but I don’t see it in your store?
Many of my paintings have not yet been included in the store. The large paintings follow a different protocol for purchase. If you find something that you like, please contact me and let me know the name of the work you are interested in.
What if I would like to commission a portrait?
Will you or the subject be in Rome? It’s best if I can work at least the beginning of the painting from life. If it’s not possible for you or the subject to come to Rome, then, I would be willing to consider traveling to you. Please contact me so we can discuss the commission in greater detail.
What do you like best about living in Italy?
A motto of mine is: go where you can be what it is you think you are. So here I am.
