About my paintings
Do you accept commissions?
Yes I do. However, at the moment I am not currently undertaking commission work but if you sign up for my newsletter I will send you notification when I am free for commissions. If you have any specific requests please use my contact form and I reply as soon as possible.
If you are considering a commission please take a look at my work and bear in mind what I paint, what mediums I use and the style that I paint in. Please don’t ask me to paint a 2 meter watercolour of your favourite pet. That isn’t what I do, sorry.
Is there any original work currently for sale?
Please take a look at my shop for a list of available original paintings. If nothing is listed then there is currently no items for sale. Check back regularly though as I am always completing new work.
How will I know when original work is for sale?
The best way is to sign up for my newsletter. Just go to the bottom of this page to sign up. I promise not to spam you.
What medium do you paint with?
I primarily use oil paint but occasionally I might use other mediums along with this. The description of the work will indicate the medium used. Please be aware that due to the limitations of a computer screen, the colours in the images of the paintings shown on my site may vary slightly when viewed in real life.
Do you frame your work?
My work does not come framed. My smaller paintings, 5 x 7 inch up to about 12 x 12 inch, are painted on plywood or MDF panels and can be easily framed either by yourself or by a professional framer. Any larger pieces which are painted on canvas will be shipped rolled in a mailing tube with their stretching frame but they will need to be taken to a framer for re-stretching.
Why do you sell through Etsy rather than from your own site?
I have chosen to sell via the Etsy site simply because it it easier. Etsy has a reputation for secure and safe transactions. If you buy through Etsy you can be confident that your payment details will be secure.
Do you ship to international addresses?
Yes, I ship almost anywhere. If, when you are looking to buy and your country is not listed please use the contact form and I will be able to quote a price.
How much is shipping?
This depends on the size of the item. My small art works (5″ x 7″) start at £4.00 for UK shipping. This is a tracked service and will require a signature on delivery. Worldwide shipping ranges from £14.00 upwards, depending on the size. This is a tracked service only. For tracking purposes you will be emailed a tracking number so that you can keep an eye on where your painting is. All paintings are insured as part of the shipping costs.
How do you ship your paintings?
All work that can be shipped flat will arrive in a protective parcel with plenty of internal packaging to prevent damage. All rolled canvases (for large work) will be mailed in a cardboard tube with the stretcher bars.
How long does delivery take?
Once you place your order it will be processed within 3 – 5 business days. Once it is shipped, you will receive an email with the tracking reference. UK delivery’s take 24 – 48 hrs from the time of posting. I use royal mail and Parcel Force for shipping. Some items will require a signature on delivery. International mail can sometimes be at the mercy if outside influences but I try to select a delivery option that can get the parcel to you with in 7 business days (this is often sooner). Please bare in mind that once the item has been posted to the buyer, I have no influence over the courier or postal service and cannot take any responcibility for their actions or late delivery.
