Hello and welcome. Thank you for visiting my gallery. Please have a good look around and feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions that are not covered here, or any special requirements, then please do not hesitate to contact me. Please see my contact details at the foot of this announcement. I will respond as soon as possible and I will do all that I can to meet your needs.
All the work here is my original art, although you may notice that elements of some pieces have been inspired by certain artists. My art features bold designs and bright colours with paint thickly applied, an 'impasto light' style using, usually, acrylic paint. The essence of art is freedom, and I hope that you will take an indulgent view and find something that you like in my gallery.
I do not currently sell prints of my work so each piece is a one-off and is unique – no other person has any piece of art which is exactly the same!
I can provide a wide range of other products featuring my art such as posters, mugs, calendars, coasters, mousemats, placemats, t-shirts, stickers, greetings cards and so on. If you would be interested in any such items, then please contact me using the contact details at the foot of this announcement. I am also happy to discuss custom work.
Unless otherwise stated, all my art comprises acrylic paint applied on gesso-primed canvas. Sizes are as stated on the individual items themselves. All pieces of art have been finished with two coats of gloss varnish to provide a protective coating and to enhance the colours used in my paintings. All items are signed and dated.
Payment for Purchases
I accept payment by Paypal; many customers find this to be the easiest and most secure method. You do not need to have a Paypal account to make a payment through Paypal – you can pay with your credit card without an account.
I will only ship an item once payment has cleared. If you have not paid within five days of being notified of the total order price (see Shipping and Postage below – I may need to confirm the total postage costs for your order to you) and there has been no contact, then I will consider the item not bought and will re-list the item.
If you have any questions, then please let me know and I will be happy to talk you through the payment process.
For UK customers only, I will also accept payment by direct transfer to my personal current account. I prefer direct account transfers when dealing with UK customers and this avoids using a third party system. If you would like to pay by direct bank transfer, then please contact me using the contact details below and I can let you have the necessary account details.
Shipping and Postage
I usually ship by standard parcel post within three working days of cleared payment being received. I can send by other class or postage methods upon request.
Postage costs are in addition to the cost of the item and are, therefore, for the account of the purchaser. Postage costs for items dispatched to a destination in the United Kingdom are currently fixed at £5 per item. Otherwise, I will provide a quote for shipping to any other destination.
