Handy info!


All pretty info on house portraits, and examples can be found here!
And you can always contact me directly with more questions, ideas, and thoughts through my contact page or send an email directly to:

A note on timeframes and the process - Once you have placed your order/paid the deposit*, I will be in touch soon after via email. (Please keep an eye on your spam/junk mail folders. Sometimes emails end up in there by mistake and I can't control it!) 
The sooner you can email me clear photos and details for the portrait, the sooner I can get started :)

Email is the preferred contact method so that I can keep track of images and conversations, however if issues occur during uploads we can hop over to Instagram or Facebook instead. 
I will ask you for images of the front of the house from different angles if possible, close ups so that I can see the details that are important to you, additional details (such as a pet) and the size you would like the finished painted portrait to be. I will also request the address of the house as sometimes a Google search provides extra insight, or Real Estate photos and helps us if you are unable to get many images yourself. 
I will then send you a rough sketch of the portrait plan. Please note that the sketch may not be full of every tiny detail as it is simply a plan to make sure things are in the right spot, and that you are happy with the general layout. As long as you have provided clear images or descriptions of the details, they will be included in the painting :)

All special additions and embellishments that you wish to include must be mentioned at the beginning of the process, and the necessary images need to be provided in order for me to work on it for you in a timely manner. 

My paintings are an illustration, created with artistic license, not an architectually accurate drawing. 

Once the rough draft is approved, I will let you know when painting is to commence (within the scheduled timeframe), and send an invoice for the remaining balance. 

*Deposit cost covers up to 3 rough re-sketches to get the planning just right. Any further changes beyond this number will result in additional charges. 

*Deposits are non-refundable, and are for you to lock in your project and allow me to plan and paint your portrait. The deposit covers the cost of time spent sketching, and planning with the customer in preparation for the final piece, and allocating the time to complete your project. If you do need to discuss this further, or cancel, please get in touch.

Please be aware that I am often working on multiple projects at once, and in order to meet dealines and stay organised it helps to receive info in a timely manner. If you are in no rush- that's absolutely fine! :) But in the case that I'm waiting to hear from you, and time is passing, other projects will take priority in order for me to keep on track, and in turn, your project may be delayed.

RETURNS. Please choose your Zenti goodies wisely! I do not offer refunds unless a product arrives damaged, or is incorrect! If you have any issues with your order at all, please email me:

PRIVACY POLICY The personal information we collect about you depends on the nature of your dealings with us or what you choose to share with us. The personal information we collect about you may include: Business and contact names; mailing or street address; date of birth; email address; website; phone number; ABN.

Zenti Designs will take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information that we hold about you is kept confidential and secure, including by taking measures to restrict access to only personnel who need that personal information to effectively provide services to you; having technological measures in place (for example, anti-virus software, fire walls).

We may send you direct marketing communications and information about our services, opportunities, or events that we consider may be of interest to you if you have requested or consented to receive such communications. These communications may be sent in various forms, including mail, SMS, fax and email, in accordance with applicable marketing laws, such as the Australian Spam Act 2003 (Cth). You consent to us sending you those direct marketing communications by any of those methods. If you indicate a preference for a method of communication, we will endeavour to use that method whenever practical to do so.

COPYRIGHT: All Copyright of artwork is owned by Emma Oliver of Zenti designs, and artwork cannot be used or reproduced without permission from the artist.

House Portraits: Your custom house portrait, like any other Zenti Designs art piece, is for personal use/display, and any further uses or reproductions require licensed approval of the artist. 

SHIPPING/DISPATCH TIMES. Please allow up to a few days for me to process your order before it's sent your way! Most products are printed on order by yours truly. I always head to the post office as soon as possible and it shouldn't be more than 1-2 business days after your order was placed :)

Flat Rate ($5) applies on all orders up to $80- small/ light items will be posted untracked via standard Australia Post service unnless specified otherwise. Orders above $80 qualify for FREE shipping! 
If you require a speedy delivery I recommend choosing the Express post option. 

Wholesale order lead times: Some products are made upon order, so please allow 2 -5 days for processing. Goods will be shipped within 10 days of received payment. 


I am not responsible for any charges that may occur when an order arrives at customs in another country. This is out of my control. I will do all I can on my end to allow your orders to arrive safely. 

International deliveries are especially vulnerable at this stage, therefore only Express shipping will be available for larger orders/items, to ensure a prioritised service. Upon purchase you accept the current situation and the delays that may occur. Once the order has left my hands the rest is out of my control. I am not liable for late deliveries, however I will try SEND A LITTLE LOVE- mailing service *currently unavailable

This service is a way to keep in touch and send cards to your friends and loved ones without having to leave the house. It includes the card, a handwritten message (personal message provided by you), and postage! I will personally post the cards, safely with all necessary precautions, directly to the recipient's address, helping you "send a little love" during these crazy times. 

At this stage the service is only available for Australian Addresses. Cards have been arriving relatively quickly without disruptions! You can purchase from overseas to send to an Aussie address, but unfortunately due to significant delays, a fair and reliable service for your cards to be sent elsewhere in the world is not guaranteed and therefore I had to remove the option. If you want to discuss other ways or have ideas, please do get in touch. I'm always happy to brainstorm! 


You can add tracking at checkout if you wish to keep an eye on your order, and this will make "lost" parcels much easier to locate. I am not liable for weather damage, loss of parcels or any other damage that occurs after the items leave my hands, however I will always try my best to help where I can. Additional costs may occur to replace/resend orders. I want you to love your Zenti goodies! So get in touch and lets see what we can do. 

Zenti Designs is not responsible for damages caused to wholesaled products in your store.


​All Art Prints are sent on their way with love, protected in an acid free plastic sleeve (to keep them safe and dry on their journey), and posted in a rigid cardboard envelope/ or box depending on the amount items ordered. 
I try to save on plastic packaging where I can, so multiple cards will be sent bundled together instead of individually sleeved. I would love to post completely plastic free orders- however I also want to ensure that your paper products arrive safely and not drenched in the event of wet weather! I'm working on it and am open to suggestions/ ideas/suppliers! 


I keep my impacts on the environment very low by printing Zenti products to order- or only producing small batches (greeting cards). All of my products are produced here in my home studio, or with a local printer! I recycle appropriate materials where I can, reuse any type of plastic possible and save/ reuse bubble wrap/packaging/boxes from other deliveries, or small businesses where I can too!

My Art Prints are Museum quality prints, made to last a lifetime.
