General Information and FAQ

Welcome to Yvette Swan’s art. The site shows a selection of paintings, past and present, which represent some of the work of  Yvette Swan.

If you are interested in seeing any available abstract, landscape, or figurative paintings these can be viewed and purchased via the shop at Simply What Is website. Simply What Is features a selection of Yvette’s work.

Alternatively, you may use the Contact Yvette Swan form here to make enquiries about Commissioned paintings (or via the Simply What Is, contact form),  or any other enquiries.

All sales of Yvette Swan’s paintings are via Simply What Is and any other representative of Yvette’s work. The Yvette Swan website is purely an overview of Yvette’s work and a way to contact her directly if you wish to.

Commissions: If interested in a commissioned work then the artist is able to create a painting with specific colours and sizes in mind from the client. The style can be similar to Yvette’s other paintings but bear in mind the scope of artistic freedom when she creates the work, they can’t be the same revisitation. Each piece is a fresh approach when created.

At the time of agreeing upon a commission, a time frame will be discussed as to when the work will be ready. Allow this to be a little sooner or later depending on scheduling or other options like wanting to have the work framed. If framed, the works being ready will also depend on the framer’s schedule.

Framing is optional. A stretched canvas (without framing) is all that is necessary to be able to hang the work once received. The work will come with ready-to-hang D-rings or wire at the back of the work.

Shipping: If you wish to have work sent from here in Sydney to you overseas, then you have the option to have the work sent as is, usually on a stretched canvas. Or if you wish to reduce shipping costs, the canvas can be taken off the stretcher bars, rolled up and packed. You will need to engage an art supplier/framer at your location to restretch the work on the stretcher bars they provide (or the original stretcher bars can be packed if you wish to pay for the shipping of these).

Shipping and insurance (optional) costs are separate from the artwork costs. This can be forwarded to you on request once you provide your location. Within Australia, local or interstate art couriers will be used. If the works are small then these can be posted via Australia Post. If overseas, then companies such as Pack and Send will be engaged.

Authenticity: All purchased works, including commissions, will provide the buyer with a Certificate of Authenticity. Please keep this with the artwork.

Copyright: Yvette Swan’s paintings and painting images are copyrighted. Images cannot be used without permission from Yvette Swan.

We hope you enjoy viewing this site. Please contact Yvette if you wish to make any enquiries regarding her work, upcoming work, or news, or to feature her work in any of your projects, collaborations, or publications. Yvette’s paintings express the freedom of what is, the freedom of the unknown….of this.

Thank you.
