Paintings:

I want to know more about your work and influences?

This is always lovely to hear! Please read my artist statement , check out my creative journal updates or follow me onInstagram where I post daily and do a weekly studio update every Wednesday evening about 6pm. 

Do you paint commissions?

Yes, I do. To give me an indication of what you’re thinking you would like for your commission, please have a look through my portfolio and send me an email to have a chat about your commission. 

How can I find out when your most recent original paintings will be for sale?

The best way to find out about my most recent available work is to sign up to my newsletter for sporadic updates about recent paintings, exhibitions and a few surprises in between! Also, keep an eye on my instagram as I’m most active there and do live studio updates every Wednesday at 6pm UK time.

I’ve never bought a painting before, where do I start?

I get asked this a lot and my advice is to always buy what you like & really enjoy looking at. Recently, I had a chat with a buyer of my work about just this. You can find some advice here and please get in touch if you would like to know anything else.

I want to buy one of your paintings, what should I do?

Please send me an email telling me which painting you are interested in and I’ll be in touch ASAP.

Can I visit your studio to see your paintings in person?

Yes, I love studio visits! I’m at studio 32 in Delta House studios Earlsfield, London, UK. Please drop me an email so I can book you in. I can also offer a video tour if you are unable to visit. Cass Art very kindly invited me to do a virtual studio tour with them during lockdown- this will give you a really good look at my studio and how I use it.

What paint materials do you use?

I use oil paint, oil bar, oil pastel and charcoal.

What paint surfaces do you paint on?

Currently, I paint on panel boards because it suits the type of painting I’m making right now. I also paint on canvas and fabriano- what is fabriano I hear you say?! Find out here

I make fine art prints. Each is a signed, dated and numbered limited edition print made with pigment ink on edition etching paper (310g) with a 5cm border.

No, just a couple from each series. If there is one painting you would prefer a print of, please get in touch and I’ll see what I can do.

Where do you sign your prints?

Each print is signed on the front with the title and year it was created.

Is a print the same as an original painting?

No, a print is a reproduction of an original painting. It has a flat finish with no added texture.
