Policies: Holds, Layaways, Returns & Shipping

Please feel free to contact Christine here with any further questions.

Holds

See an artwork you like? Need a bit fo f time to decide? Just let me know here. I will put a hold on your painting for a day or two. No payment required.

Layaway

Contact me to work out the easiest way for you to purchase the painting you love over time with instalment payments. After you place a non- refundable down payment through Paypal, I will reserve your painting for the time period and payment schedule agreed upon in writing beforehand. When the final payment and shipping is paid, the art work will be carefully packaged and sent to you insured, and tracked.  Contact me.

Returns

All sales are FINAL. Shipping costs, possible wear and tear of the artwork, etc. all play a part in this policy.

I understand that, especially for the higher priced paintings, you may feel more comfortable that there is a return option. Contact me here.

Shipping & Duty

Prices on this website (Christine Montague.com) that include shipping apply to Canada and the U.S.A. only. Please contact me here about shipping to other locations. 

Worldwide shipping is available.  So far, I have shipped my polar bear paintings to the United Kingdom, Australia, the Netherlands, Bermuda, and across Canada and the USA.

All paintings , whether purchased directly from Christine Montague or through her affiliate online gallery, ship directly from Christine’s Toronto area studio in Ontario, Canada.

Paintings purchased directly from the artist are usually shipped with Canada Post. All paintings are carefully packed (its a big job!) , and mailed with insurance and tracking. As soon as I ship the painting, I send you the tracking info.

Paintings purchased through my affiliate online gallery (although they still ship from my studio) are shipped with DHL. All communication about tracking etc., will be between the client and the affiliate gallery.

All duty charges are the responsibility of the purchaser. Many countries do not charge duty for original artwork by a living artist.
