How to Buy Art

Art for love, peace and joy!

Buying art: When you decide to buy a work of art, ask yourself how does it moves you, how does it make you feel, what makes you connect with the artwork. Don't buy art for its future price, but do make sure the artist is serious and committed to a life-long art practice, for it might well turn into a growing treasure. Don't buy art to please anyone but your soul, but consider how it will impact your loved ones. Buy art to give yourself a gift of connection with the truth in your own heart, because that is the only truly good reason to buy a work of art.

Buying art is a little like having a baby. It is a commitment to caring for something precious, and unique. It is a little like adopting a pet, love at first sight that grows and evolves. Your children will grow with it, and it will be part of your family.

Take your time, don't rush, do it only if your heart approves.

This interview, mostly intended to help other artists, might be useful to find out more about how I work with collectors and commissions: Selling Art.

How to buy my art:
Originals: I offer payment plans if you are interested in one of my originals. We can agree on a monthly payment, and I reserve the piece for you until you pay for it. I then ship it to you. Shipping is free.

Commissions: I meditate on your idea for a commission and if it comes out naturally, I give you details and a design for your approval. It often takes me a long time to get to this point. After that, it goes faster! I will then give you a price and a time frame, and will complete the piece. You can have a payment plan, too.

Some commissions I have done:
Art Kitchen
Poetry Bathroom and the Bathroom Project
Mosaic Mural
Virgin of Guadalupe painting and Mary Magdalene of the Roses
Madre Patria watercolor painting

Shop policies:
Your satisfaction is my priority. If for any reason you are not satisfied, return the item for a full refund, except shipping.


"My name is Johanaliz and I just purchased a print of Mi Patria on Etsy and I love it! I bought it as a gift for my father's birthday. I just got it framed and it looks great and I can't wait to give it to him this Saturday, I just know he is going to love it as much as I do. So I wanted to thank you and congratulate you on your talent. I got the painting very quickly and I was very surprised by my Princess Lizzy drawing, thank you! It really made my day and it's an original just for me."


"Hi Tanya,
Just wanted to let you know that I received the two prints in the mail today. They are so beautiful, even more than in the photos. Thank you so much!!! They will definitely be a beautiful addition to my midwifery clinic art.

Thanks again,
From Etsy:

"Gorgeous art! Arrived in perfect condition with some bonus items that were totally lovely. Tanya's pieces are truly special." Nyla

"This piece of art defines who I want to be in 2013. In touch with myself and the rest of the world through deep focusing and meditation. I am such a happy buyer of Ms. Tanya Torres. She is a great artist and sound business woman. Very responsive and generous. I highly recommend that you peruse her site and support a local artist. I will be back again soon to check out her work."

"Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. Thank you!!" J.S.
