Orders to all destinations outside Australia will be sent airmail via Australia Post or an International courier service.   Your painting(s) should arrive between 10-14* business days after payment has been confirmed. There may be unforeseen circumstances at the destination or within the freight company that we have no control over. Please contact us if you are concerned at all regarding the shipment of your order. A framed/stretched painting will attract a small freight charge for international orders depending on the size of the painting ordered.
