Please check sizes carefully before deciding to place your order.
2. Buying –
If you would like to purchase an original artwork you can request to reserve it. All reservations are by approval.
You can request to reserve a piece by telephone or email. This reservation holds the artwork for up to 14 days.
When making your reservation you can confirm any requirements you may have for framing, etc.
The estimated costs of packing and shipping will be provided and agreed with you.
You will receive a confirmation email of your reservation, together with a pro-forma invoice.

3. Shipping –
Packing and shipping costs are based on a number of factors; size, weight, framed/unframed, destination, etc.
Artworks can be collected in person by appointment. Large or more valuable artworks can be personally delivered, by arrangement.
All artworks, including Limited Edition Prints, are packed to provide the best possible level of protection, within reason.
Every artwork is checked fully before packing and dispatch to ensure the piece is undamaged.
All items dispatched are tracked. However, once dispatched the courier/Royal Mail is responsible for the artwork.
You can choose additional insurance for your artwork. If so, please request this at the time of ordering.
If your order arrives and appears damaged before opening, please ensure you do the following:
a) take photos of the damage to the outside of the packaging before opening it
b) take photos of any damage to the artwork inside the package
Where a courier/Royal Mail is responsible for damage in transit you should lodge a complaint with them and notify the Artist.
The Artist does not accept damage in transit caused by couriers or Royal Mail (but will assist you with a claim, where possible).
4. Limited Edition Prints –
Prints supplied on stretched canvas will be packed and shipped exactly as an original oil painting would be.
Prints supplied on Fine Art Paper are normally packed flat. We avoid sending prints rolled, as this can damage the print.
5. Guarantee –
All artworks supplied by the Artist are covered by a 14-Day Money Back Guarantee. This covers the artwork cost only, not shipping costs.
If, for any reason, you do not wish to keep the artwork you receive, you should email firstname.lastname@example.org stating your reasons for wishing to return it.
The 14 day guarantee starts from the confirmed date of delivery. Successful guarantee claims are paid within 14 days of confirmation.
If you are returning the artwork as you believe it was damaged before shipping, you will be asked to supply photographic evidence of the unopened packaging.
When you open your package please be very careful not to damage the artwork inside. Do not use sharp knives or blades to open the packaging.
When unpacked please ensure you handle the artwork carefully. Stretch canvas oil paintings can easily be damaged by sharp objects, etc.
Important – if returning an artwork and requesting a refund under this guarantee, you must return the piece in the same condition it was sent. Artworks that are returned damaged or marked, accidentally or as a result of poor repacking may not be eligible for a full refund. If in any doubt please contact before returning.
If returning an artwork you are responsible for ensuring that the packing is sufficient to provide adequate protection. Please note; oil paintings on stretched canvas in particular are at risk of damage if not correctly packed. Call for advice.
When you have your new artwork – Ideally, hang or display your new artwork as soon as possible, or if not, ensure it is stored safely and carefully (guidance on this can be provided)
If you accidentally damage your artwork please contact the Artist, we will do everything we can to help.
