Frequently Asked Questions

What type of materials do you use and how do you finish your paintings?
Most of my work is created using acrylic or watercolour paint. I sometimes use pastels, glass paint, and other mixed media as a part of my process. Canvas originals are varnished (a liquid sealant) to protect your painting from oils and dust. For artwork on paper I again seal the surface of the painting with a light spray varnish and recommend mounting behind glass in a frame to protect the painting from damage, see my Caring for Your Artwork guide for more information.

Do you do commissions?
Yes, I do, For commission information visit the Commissions page.

Is there a way I can preview what a painting would look like in my house?
Yes, if you email me at:, sending a picture of the wall you want to hang the painting on. I will use your photo and add the painting onto your wall digitally and send it back for you to view.

What type of prints do you offer?
I offer prints on 260gm Luster Professional Photographic Paper which has a smooth texture and slight sheen, 170gm Matt Professional Photographic Paper which has a smooth texture and matt finish and Hahnemühle natural white, 100% cotton rag 350gm fine art paper with a similar texture to the original canvas painting.
I always include a white border for easy framing.  Details are shown on each individual product page.
