Frequently asked questions
Do you undertake commissions?
No, currently I'm not doing commissions as it doesn't really suit my process.
What medium do you use?
I use oils, but sometimes I do my underpainting in acrylics as they dry quickly.
Are all your paintings painted 'plein air'?
No, often I'm painting in the studio - it really depends on the weather! Often I will do small oil sketches plein air, and then work from them in the studio to create bigger paintings. If it's a good day for painting outside, I might finish a bigger painting in situ.
Will framed paintings come ready to hang?
Yes, they will be ready to go!
What are 'giclee' prints?
Giclee (pronounced 'zhee-clay') prints are high-quality digital prints. Mine are printed on archival quality, 100% cotton fibre, acid-free Somerset Velvet 225gsm paper - which is made in traditional paper moulds by St Cuthberts Mill in Cornwall.
Do your prints come framed?
No, they would be sent rolled, in a sturdy cardboard posting tube, and would need framing behind glass.
Do you ship overseas?
This is where it's worth getting in touch as shipping costs vary and I would need to find out the best method depending on the destination. All posted work has to be signed for.
What happens if I change my mind?
If you are unhappy with your piece, or just change your mind, I offer a full refund (excluding return postage costs) if the painting or print is returned, undamaged, within 14 days.
