A Bespoke Service
Every piece of art is handmade and unique. To that end, many of the photographs on this site can be regarded as an inspiration, and you can request custom sizes or frame finishes as special orders.
You are most welcome to commission original artwork for a specific location. I can actively work with you or your interior designer to create pieces that unite or an enhance an interior scheme as part of my service.
There are no limitations and, no matter your location, I will help you every step of the way to owning your special painting, print or drawing. I will provide you with as many details, samples, images and quotations as possible to ensure everything runs smoothly.
If you can come to my studio you can book a private appointment to view a piece of art, discuss framing or shipping choices. This allows us the opportunity to discuss your exact requirements. My studio is on the outskirts of The New Forest in Hampshire, and a mile from the Dorset Coast near Christchurch. Alternatively, you can book a video appointment, where I will show you a piece in progress or hung in my studio gallery space, however, it is wise to mention that, due to our rural location, my internet connection can be unstable and the video appointments are beyond my control and not always to the quality I would like.
I understand that buying a piece of art is a huge commitment and deeply personal choice. Like buying a house, or a puppy, it is something you want to be as sure as possible is going to bring joy into your life and home. Therefore, if you are interested in a particular piece, and are not certain if it will fit in your space or with your decor, you can request to see the work in your home. Obviously, I cannot do this for every single print, but if you live within a reasonable distance in the UK, I may be able to bring an artwork to your home. Please use the contact form or telephone 01425 276000 if you would like to discuss this further.
For those of you who live overseas or outside Mainland UK, you are welcome to email a picture of your blank wall and I will place a digital version of the painting on the photograph for you. If you do this, please be sure to take the picture in good light so as to get the best quality image in return.
Bespoke Overseas Shipping
If you live outside of Mainland UK and are interested in a piece of art, my website should give you an estimated shipping cost. However, art is not a standard commodity and there may be instances where you need an individual estimate or have a personal requirement for the shipping. Please just simply getting touch via the contact form and I will do my very best to give you precise calculations and a white glove service. There is more about my Shipping here.
Original Art & Limited Edition Prints
Owning an original piece of art is a luxury, and I genuinely believe there is a world apart between an original and a print. With an original painting, there is a fineness and subtlety that, no matter how good the impression, how imperceptible the difference – there is something magical that can only be found in an original.
When buying fine art, you’re also supporting the many hours that have gone into its creation. Most of my still life paintings take about 3 weeks, (sometimes more) and you’re collecting something rare and unique – a moment in time. I find when I paint, the music I listen to, the books I've read, the countryside walk I've taken, they all feed into that creation. That experience can be wonderous and never reciprocated exactly.
Owning an original is akin to eating at an excellent restaurant – that food you taste, the people your with, the lighting, the service of the waiter, the way your dress fitted – that is magical and it is a sensory delight. A painting, like a pair of designer shoes or a beautiful piece of jewellery, is a statement of your passion and your integrity. It becomes your heritage and an heirloom to be passed on for future generations.
That said, I pride myself on the archival quality of my Giclée print. I have discovered a local artisan printer, and we make Limited Edition of 50 or less to order. With each beautifully framed piece, you also get a Certificate of Authenticity signed and dated by myself.
I see your investment in my art as a deep commitment, and I want you and your family to be able to love and appreciate your picture for years to come.
Every piece is unique, and prints are hand-made to order.
