Frequently Asked Questions

What type of materials do you use and how do you finish your paintings?
Most of my work is created using acrylic or watercolour paint. I sometimes use pastels, glass paint, and other mixed media as a part of my process. Canvas originals are varnished (a liquid sealant) to protect your painting from oils and dust. For artwork on paper I again seal the surface of the painting with a light spray varnish and recommend mounting behind glass in a frame to protect the painting from damage, see my Caring for Your Artwork guide for more information.

Do you do commissions?
Yes, I do, For commission information visit the Commissions page.

Is there a way I can preview what a painting would look like in my house?
Yes, if you email me at:, sending a picture of the wall you want to hang the painting on. I will use your photo and add the painting onto your wall digitally and send it back for you to view.

What type of prints do you offer?
I offer prints using:
  • 170gsm Matt Professional Photographic Paper which has a smooth texture and matt finish
  • 270gsm Fine Art Photo Rag paper which give a matt Giclee painterly finish
  • 300gsm Satin Pearl Professional Photographic Paper which has a smooth texture and slight sheen
  • and heavy weight Art Canvas with a similar texture to the original canvas painting 
All the Professional Photographic Papers are acid free and designed to maintain there colour and not to deteriorate over time. I always include a white border for easy framing.  Details are shown on each individual product page.

Do you Use Recycled Materials?
I use recycled materials where possible, purchasing recycled packaging for shipping and reusing materials for bulk outer layers and padding during transport. It is important that the packaging layers next to a painting or print are acid free and in pristine condition with no creases or damage which would mark the surface of the work, please visit my Ethical Policy page for more information.
