I love to collaborate on commissions with clients, to make a bespoke piece of work, and have completed many commissions for clients.
The commission process is fairly relaxed, It can involve as little or as much interaction as you would like. We can chat via email and phone calls, or Skype.
I usually allow 4 – 6 weeks to complete a painting, (*this can vary depending on other commitments ) and depending on size.)
Once we’ve decided on colours, and the look and feel of the painting, I initially send some painted sketches of what the broad shape of the finished painting would look like, for your approval.
Clients often request a painting that has sold, that they would like recreated. I am happy to do this.
Once agreed on the direction you would like the painting to go, I order the bespoke canvas, and start work. I would then send you images of your painting, halfway through the process, to see if you are happy with the direction of the piece.
Some people like to be very involved, and others prefer to just see the finished painting. Whatever suits you best .
If you would like to buy a painting that you’ve seen on the website, please email me either through the contact page on here, or email me at email@example.com. If I can sell it directly, I will then let you know, and we can discuss payment and shipping options.
How is my payment handled?
I accept bank transfers, and can supply my bank details. Once the money has gone into my account, I will dispatch the painting.
Payments can be taken through PayPal in British Pounds Sterling. But they do charge a fee, so I would prefer it if you could do the transaction by bank transfer. However, if this is not possible, I will accept Paypal payments. You do not need to have a PayPal account to purchase; you can use the PayPal service to pay with your regular debit or credit card. I do not store any of your debit/credit card details. Please send me an email with your details and order to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have placed my order, how soon will I receive my artwork?
Most orders will be packed and shipped within 5 working days. Within the UK pieces are sent by courier depending on size and weight. All shipments are tracked and require a signature on delivery. I use a specialist company to pack and ship my paintings, to guarantee that it arrives with you in perfect condition.
Can you ship internationally?
Yes, I can ship to most countries. I use a specialist company to pack and ship my paintings, to guarantee that it arrives with you in perfect condition. They can offer deliveries in securely packed boxes, and crates for larger pieces, and shipping internationally. Message me with your details and the piece you would like and I can give you a quote for shipping options.
Overseas shipments (outside the UK) may be subject to import duties and taxes according to the laws of the destination country. Any additional charges are at the customer’s expense. I’m afraid I have no control over these charges and accept no responsibility for additional charges.
Shipping costs cover packing supplies, labour and transit fees.
What if it arrives and I don’t like it?
I want you to be fully happy with your painting so I offer a returns policy.
If a piece is not as you expect, you have 7 days to contact me by email and request a refund. Once a return has been agreed, you are responsible for packing and arranging return delivery using the same service it was sent to you. Once the piece has been safely returned we will refund your payment within 14 days. Payment is refunded minus the cost of shipping and PayPal fees.
What if my painting arrives damaged?
All work is carefully packed and wrapped. If you receive a work that has been damaged in transit, please contact me within 7 days and if possible keep a photograph.
What about Overseas Returns?
At this time I am unable to offer a refund or return on any paintings sent outside of the UK.
