FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Here are the questions I am most frequently asked but I am more than happy to answer any other questions that you may have. Just drop me a line via the contact form.
WHAT MATERIALS/ MEDIA DO YOU USE?
Many of my paintings are made with acrylic paint, either on canvas, paper or on cradled birch panel. To apply the paint and for mark making I use brushes, but most of all I like to use all kinds of other tools not found in art stores.
For some painting series, I use oil paint and cold wax medium. This allows me to create a lot of depth and texture in the layers.
I also make collages on canvas or mat board. I have batches of prepared papers stored by color family. I paint them in all kinds of colors and create patterns using high quality acrylic paint. They are ready to pick from when I decide to make a series of collages.
HOW ARE PAINTINGS DELIVERED?
Some of my paintings are large and require a serious amount of packaging. For all paintings, I use professional protective methods to ensure the surface and corners are not damaged, protecting your investment (and mine). I don’t skimp on cardboard, bubble wrap and packing tape.
If you are close to Torrevieja/Spain, I can deliver it at your door!
HOW MUCH IS SHIPPING
Shipping costs depend on your location and the amount of your order.
If your order is above €400 you don't pay any shipping costs for worldwide delivery.
ARE YOUR PAINTINGS FRAMED
Most paintings are not framed in order to keep shipping costs low but also because frames can be a very personal choice.
Some smaller panels are framed in a white box frame (without glass). If this is the case, it is indicated in the artwork description and pictures are provided.
If a work is offered unframed and you'd like to buy it framed, please use the contact form to discuss possible options.
WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DO YOU TAKE?
I accept cash if I am delivering the painting to you locally, or if you can collect. On the website, you can pay by PayPal or credit card.
Sales at my studio can be paid in cash or by credit cards.
DO YOU PAINT TO COMMISSION?
I've already done commissions but, as I'm a process painter, it’s difficult for me to paint exactly what a client might have in mind because I don’t know what is going to emerge. However, if you have a particular requirement for a certain size, main color palette or for example would like to offer a poem or quote that is meaningful to you as a starting point, I am always happy to discuss the possibilities, with no commitment on your part.
DO YOU RUN WORKSHOPS?
Currently I am concentrating on painting towards a couple of shows this year, and although this may be something I will consider in the future in my studio in Spain, it’s not something I’m actively planning at present. If you think you might be interested, make sure you sign up to my newsletter to be the first to receive news of any planned workshops.
DO YOU SELL PRINTS OF YOUR PAINTINGS?
I am not focusing on prints at this moment but if you have a particular request, please contact me via the contact form.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO SEE YOUR WORK IN PERSON?
I am always happy to welcome you to my studio to have a look around at the work in progress and currently available, by appointment.
