Oil paint is my main medium of choice, knowing that my paintings will last for hundreds of years to come. If required, I can also produce artwork for you in graphite pencil, coloured pencil, or watercolours.
Giclee (zhee-clay) prints are highly detailed, archival quality prints, commonly found in museums and galleries. The colour on these prints will last over 100 years, which is why it is worth investing in giclee prints over photo or poster prints.
If you are interested in a print of any piece, please feel free to contact me and I'll see what I can do. However, if the print that you are after is from a limited edition batch, no further prints can be produced for you.
No sorry, I do not reproduce exact copies of originals. All my pieces are one-of-a-kind. However, I wouldn't mind painting the same image in a different palette (choice of colours).
All original pieces are sold via the shop's retail price list on my website and all prices are inclusive of free worldwide shipping. If you can not find the piece listed there, please do not hesitate to inquire about it. On occasion, if an original oil painting is not for sale, it is either sold or part of my private collection. Nonetheless, at the right price I may consider selling the piece to you. Alternatively, if you would like some custom art (better known as a commission), please contact me via the form below.
Yes, you are welcome to pay in monthly installments if this is of more convenience to you. PayPal is prefered but direct bank transfer is also accepted.
Unless you are purchasing my work at trade price, please refrain from haggling. I put an awful lot of time and thought into my work, thus the pricing is fair. Any bargained price which when broken down hourly, doesn't even meet minimum wage, is disrespectful to any professional artist.
HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE FOR COMMISSIONS?
Commission pieces are based on the size, style, and content of the painting. If you would like to commission me, please fill out the contact form below with your brief and I will get back to you. Please note that all commissioned pieces require a down payment before any work begins (preferably by PayPal) to cover the cost of materials and labour. The remaining payment will need to be paid before shipment or collection. You will also be expected to sign a contract detailing all painting and payment terms. As a rough guide, an 8x8" custom canvas is £300 ($400), inclusive of worldwide shipping.
As I work intricately in detail, please allow at least one month for me to complete your commission. Ideally, an additional two weeks on top of this for the oil paint to dry thoroughly before shipping.

No, this is free of charge. However, please bear in mind that it takes 6 months for an oil painting to thoroughly dry before it can be varnished!
