Caltroplay: Paid artist at convention, artist stopped responding after first exchange

WHO: Caltroplay

WHERE: FA Profile: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/caltroplay/
I met her at MFF 2016 in the dealer's den, and paid her 75$ USD for a sketch.

WHAT: Black and white (I assume digital) two-character sketch, paid $75 USD in cash (she didn't take cards).

WHEN: Met her on the last day of MFF 2016, talked briefly, asked if she was available for commissions, which she was - so I happily commissioned her for a two-character sketch. I messaged her through FA two weeks later on December 19th, describing an idea I wanted illustrated. I got a reply from her two weeks later, saying she wasn't sure if the idea would work well but she could give it a shot. I have not heard from her since, despite replying to that message and sending her multiple FA notes in the following months. I sent her a note on Jan 16th which FA has marked as read, but never got a reply. I sent a followup note on Jan 28th, which FA still marks as not read.

I've looked for other ways to contact her - left a shout on her page, tweeted at her a few times, but never heard back. Her FA journal post from Dec 7th, 9 months ago, lists my name as one of the people who ordered a take home commission at MFF: http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/7962221/

EXPLAIN: I've offered multiple times asking for either a refund or the image I paid for:

This is an FA message I sent on Jan 28th: https://ibb.co/fMzuzQ
This is a tweet I made on May 21st which was never addressed: https://twitter.com/NitramHu/status/866531731515383809

To my knowledge she still uses Twitter - her FA profile has not been active. I don't know of any other way to contact her.

I feel kind of bad for doing this, as she seems to be dealing with some personal issues, but I haven't received any news in over 8 months.

PROOF:

I don't want to harass or hurt anyone - I just want to either get my art or a refund. Probably just a refund at this point.
