Just some common questions I get asked...
Are commissions a little more expensive than usual?
Yes they are, but for a good reason. You are getting a custom, one of a kind artwork. No-one else will have it. It isn't going to be turned into a print and I will never copy it for someone else.
How do I inquire about a commission? What is the etiquette?
Go to the 'commissions' tab in the menu. Let me know what you're after (size, colours, orientation, what you like and don't like, time frame and budget). I'll get back to you from there. Things to consider are the size of the painting you want and and time-frame.
The best type of client for a commission is someone who has an idea of what they want but likes my work but will let me get on with it. They also understand that I have other work to do and are understanding of time frames.
You sell the same paintings across a few different platform's and I've noticed a price difference, why?
Commission. When I sell a painting/ print through a different platform or gallery I have to give a percentage to them. The price you see isn't what the artist gets. Galleries (online or not) are businesses and have costs to cover, which is cool, but if you buy from my own website you are supporting a small business and I am able to keep the profit. This allows me to keep painting!
My canvas prints through Left Bank are the highest quality available - you will be unable to tell they are a print. They are all framed and come in various options which is why there is a price difference compared to the ones on paper.
Originals are expensive! Do you have a payment plan option?
I have Afterpay! Paypal also offers a similar pay in 4 system. I'm also open to negotiating lay-buys, so just contact me about that.
Are they all framed?
Usually, yep. An oak option is default, but you can contact me if you want to discuss different options. IT WILL CLEARLY STATE IF ITS NOT FRAMED. Prints through Left Bank have a few different options, but some will just be rolled up. Check the listing before you purchase.
Do you have a newsletter?
Nope. Listen, I'm busy and you're busy. I don't wanna write one and you don't wanna read one. If you want to keep up to date with what I'm doing follow me on Instagram.Later on I may set one up. If I do, it will only be to give those people who've signed up discounts on my work or early bird access.
