Frequently asked questions
WHAT IS YOur favourite painting medium?
Mostly oils, sometimes acrylics, with every painting being sealed under a specialists artists varnish which helps to bring out the vibrancy in the colours. I also like to use just a good old fashioned pencil at times.
HOW DO YOU MAKE YOUR PRINTS?
Slate prints are made by myself using Sublisplash inks which are then sealed onto the slate using a heat press. All other prints are hand printed by myself in the studio using pigment inks onto 220 gsm archival artists matt paper.
How much is shipping and DO YOU send OUTSIDE THE UK?
DO YOU ACCEPT PAINTING REQUESTS?
Yes, the vast majority of my original paintings are now all commissions. It is vary rare I get the time to paint an original and have it available for sale. More information can be found on my Commission An Original section.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN PAINTING FOR?
I was born in 1972 and have been painting almost every day since the age of 14. Selling paintings since 1997 and took the step to become a full time artist in 2011. Painting is my life :)
CAN I ASK YOU HINTS AND TIPS?
Of course. Some artists can be very guarded, I decided never to be like that. I believe everyone can and should paint as it is very therapeutic. Please feel free to use the contact form with any questions you may have!?
