This site is currently evolving into a Gallery/store, While we are being educated, documenting products and transitioning from a normal site, we are unfortunately selling the old way..
Buying A Painting from Me
1. Choose your favorite piece.
The Gallery has a number of paintings on display. Once you have clicked on an image a large version will appear.
The price will be displayed in the description unless the painting has already been sold, in which case please take advantage of the printed posters available.
I will be producing a range of limited edition posters in the near future.
2. How will I know if the artwork will suit the space?
I am personally concerned with placing artwork in spaces where they work, so I offer you the opportunity to view before you commit.
Mention the painting that you are interested in, in the message box below, and request a visual. I will respond with an email address for you to send a photo of your wall to and I will then digitally render a visual of the painting hanging there for you to view. Personalised service for your peace of mind.
3. You like my style of art but haven't found the ‘One’.
Creating custom pieces to suit your needs is a big part of my journey.
Make contact in the message bar at the bottom of the page. If you are not completely certain of the painting you would like to commission, open a discussion with me. I am qualified to design and we can complete this exciting task together.
I will work with you personally by email, WhatsApp, or the good old fashioned telephone.
4. Sorry I don’t take magic beans , I won’t fall for that twice.
The commission of a painting follows a strict procedure. Once a quotation is accepted, a deposit is payable upfront and the balance is due before delivery.
A bank (IBAN or BACS) transfer is my preferred method of payment and will be requested prior to shipping or delivery. I also accept PayPal and all major credit cards via PayPal. Any other wire transfer services can be negotiated.
5. I Can’t afford that painting right now but I have the perfect space for it.
See something you like but don't have the funds at the moment? We have all been there and I would hate to have one of my babies ending up in the wrong home.
Available options are:
A payment plan: You can reserve a painting or limited edition print on lay-bye terms.
Replications: Consider canvas and poster printing options, which are more affordable than original paintings or limited edition prints. Museum-quality posters made on thick and durable matte paper, low gloss and fingerprint resistant. The following sizes (in inches) are available 8×10, 10×10, 12×12, 12×16, 14×14, 12×18, 16×16, 16×20, 18×18, 18×24, 24×36
Merchandise: Artwork is versatile and not limited to wall decoration. Buy your artwork on wearable and functional products. Coffee mugs, cellphone covers, T-shirts and more are available on order.
Plaques are hand made by me and can feature any of my painted works.
6. Size Matters?
The size of each art piece is listed in the description alongside the corresponding images in the gallery.
Commissioned paintings can be made to fit the final destination. I have produced paintings on canvasses up to 11 meters long and 3 meters high and as small as a postcard.
To have one of my paintings made larger or smaller to suit your needs is not a problem.
I have a few options available for delivery:
Local delivery in Ireland is free of charge.
International ‘Tube’ delivery. If you are wanting to have the painting framed this is the best and cheapest option for delivery. I will separate the painting from its stretched frame and secure it in an air tight and water proof tube that can be delivered directly to your framer, ensuring less chance of any mishaps. This applies to all canvas and paper produced paintings.
International ‘Shipping Crate’: Larger paintings can be shipped already stretched for instant installation on arrival. The crates are made to order to ensure the safety of your new artwork.
Customs in your country may charge import duty or a handling fee; this is not covered by me and you may be liable for it. Please check beforehand.
8. Decor change
I'm going to take you into the future here
You have purchased an original painting some time ago (It looks amazing on your wall by the way) and you are sitting with your morning coffee browsing my site and looking through all the new art pieces. You come across a painting you love, its calling to you but you already have one of my paintings in the space. "If only I had waited " you think to yourself, but you then realize that the painting is the same value as the one you previously purchased.
Happy days. I love to see my kids again and I'm always happy to trade paintings.
9. What if the painting gets damaged in transit?
When transporting precious cargo we are always sure to take the appropriate insurance to protect your investment.
10.I have a question but I don't want to seem ignorant.
My history with art and the things I’ve learned over the past 30 years are an open book. I don't believe that I am the sum of all knowledge in the artworld so If I can’t answer your question and can’t find the answer for you I will be honest and admit to it. I have learned some things along the way and will be happy to share my experience. Just remember that I'm an artist not an encyclopedia, so fire away and I’ll do my best for you.
Along with your original artwork you will receive a Certificate of Authenticity.
