FAQs and Shipping

How long does a piece of art take to make?

Each piece can vary depending on the size of the canvas, the theme of the subject, and the accuracy and precision involved. Pieces based on real life locations or with historical content require a lot of in-depth research and planning in order to bring them to life. Some pieces can take a few weeks and others can take a few months, with hundreds of hours of drawing time involved.

Are your original works available?

Yes. My original pieces are usually shown and exhibited at international art fairs, shows and events each year, where they can be purchased. They can also be purchased in person at my gallery from home, or by simply enquiring through the contact page on my website where more information can be provided about a particular piece.

Do you do commission/custom works?

I do take on commission works, but only selected subjects that are in-keeping with my style and current themes. Commissioned originals start at £5,000. I don’t create tattoo designs, logos, album/book covers, book illustrations, portraits or collaborations with other artists. I do offer hand-drawn customisations to limited edition canvas prints upon request.

How are the prints made?

Once an original piece is complete, I scan it digitally in house at a 600dpi resolution where it can then be used to make prints onto canvas and paper. The printing itself is outsourced.

What’s the difference between paper and canvas print?

There are very big differences between the two mediums of print.

Paper prints are digitally printed onto a 180gsm (230gsm for selected A0 prints) matt finish paper. These are described as a ‘poster style’ print and are all open edition.

Canvas prints are digitally printed onto a 350gsm Giclée fine art cotton canvas material that is stretched and mounted onto a wooden frame. The smaller sizes of a particular piece on canvas are open edition, whereas the largest size canvas print available of each piece is limited edition in a run of 25, 50 or 100 (E.g. Ascend the Acropolis is available in sizes A2 and A1. The A1 is limited to 50 editions only, whereas the A2 is open edition). The largest canvas print of any particular piece is the closest representation of the original work, hence it is limited.

How will my order be shipped?

Paper prints in sizes A3/A3 sq, A2/A2 sq and A1/A1 sq are sent via Royal Mail Delivery Service (UK Royal Mail International Tracked and Signed service for international orders). Paper prints at A0/A0 sq and ALL canvas print sizes are sent vis DHL Express courier service. Paper prints are rolled in protective tubes and canvas prints are bubble wrapped and boxed up.

How long does shipping take?

Orders are typically dispatched within 1-2 working days of your order being placed.

Shipping within the UK can then take 1-2 working days. International orders can vary between 5-10 working days, with delays occasionally expected. Stock sometimes needs to be ordered in, which can add on an additional 1-3 days upon order being placed (often the case with canvas prints). Once your order has been posted out, you will receive an email with a reference number (Waybill number if it’s with DHL Express) and a link provided to track your shipment.

Will I have to pay any international fees?

The buyer is responsible for any international customs fees that you may have to pay in order to have your print released if held at customs. If you are unsure, before placing an order it is best to check your countries customs fees for the amount you are wanting to spend on a print.

Can I view/purchase prints in person?

You can come to view and purchase prints from my studio/gallery from home in Somerset, UK. Please contact in advance to arrange a visit. You can also view and purchase my prints occasionally in Bath, of which I set up a pop-up stall (mostly at weekends). This is weather permitting so best to check in advance if I will be there.

Can I get a refund/return a purchased print?

Unfortunately I can’t accept returned prints due to the delicate nature of the material, meaning they can’t be resold once they have been dispatched. This applies to all prints purchased online and in person.
