When you buy original art, the art will usually ship from the artist, unless we have it on hand. Prints, reproductions and limited editions are most likely shipped from Savvy Art in Oakville, but sometimes from the artist. Ask us where the artist is located if you wish to know. We ship worldwide and sometimes include the cost of shipping. If shipping is extra because you are located beyond Canada and USA or somewhere in remote Canada and USA, we will inform you of the charges before we proceed.
