My Approach

Whilst I am a professional artist, over the years I have gained a strong business background and I recognise that, as well as producing high quality art, I need to give a good commercial service at a fair price.

Working with me, you will find that I meet agreed delivery deadlines and I am always happy to try and accommodate shorter delivery periods if needed.

My service is personal and friendly. You will only deal with me, and you can have confidence in any transaction.

Payments

I am able to accept payment by cash or cheque.

Deposits

For private commissions, I am often able to work without requiring a deposit and I prefer this approach. I want to build a good relationship with my customers that I hope will flourish over time. I do like to extend this approach to commercial commissions as well. Sometimes, if a commission is likely to be lengthy and time consuming, I have to ask for an initial payment.

Get In Touch!

I have a good depth of knowledge about my trade and I am comfortable with a wide-range of subjects. Whether you're looking for a greetings card design or a cartoon, illustrations for a web site, an oil painting of your favourite scene (either locally or from holiday photos), a pen-and-ink picture of your house or an illustration of a cherished possession (or anything else!), do contact me to talk over how I might help.

Please Note: If you are commissioning an original artwork, when I have received full payment you acquire the ownership of that original. However, that does not extend to reproduction rights, which remain with me. For all other artwork, copyright resides with me unless otherwise agreed.
