Purchase information

All paintings on this site are originals and, if available, can be purchased on this site.  You only have to click the Shop now using PayPal button appearing on the page of the chosen work, complete the required form and then send it to the artist.  A PayPal invoice, including the price of the aforementioned work as well as the cost of its shipping, will be sent to you.  You can then settle this invoice, directly on the PayPal secured site, with the credit card of your choice.  If you wish to use another method of payment, just send an e-mail to Helene and let her know which painting you would like to buy.  An answer confirming information needed for you to forward your payment will be sent to you.

The deep gallery-wrapped sides are staple-free and painted either in a neutral color (small formats) or with the paint flow that continues all around (medium and large formats) ; no framing needed.  Coated with an acrylic polymer varnish for added protection, with a solid hanging wire attached to the back, the painting arrives ready to hang.  All paintings are signed on the back and include a hand-signed and dated certificate of authenticity.

Even though Helene makes sure to take accurate shots of her work, please note that colors may vary slightly from a monitor to another.  But usually, the paintings look better in person because you get to see more of the texture and the details.  So, if you like it online, most likely you will like it even better in person.

  • PayPal, method of payment to be favored
  • Certified cheques

Please note that every payment must clear before the painting is shipped.
