Descriptions of artworks are as accurate as possible and are given in good faith. However, due to the nature of some of the pieces, measurements are given as close approximations (+/-5mm).

Unless stated otherwise, all artworks are intended to be installed unframed and will be provided as such. Where applicable, a method of hanging/installation will be provided.

Unless stated otherwise, all artworks are one-off original pieces.

In the event that an artwork is damaged/faulty/incorrect upon arrival at your specified delivery address, please notify me by email within 14 days of receipt of your order and include:

  • details of the problem
  • if possible, a digital photograph of the problem as this will help assess the best course of action
  • your order number/reference

I will then contact you to discuss an appropriate solution to the problem.

As most of the artworks are one-off originals, direct exchanges/replacements will not be possible.

You will have several options offered to you, such as:

  • provide a refund, to include any delivery charges you paid when you placed your order 
  • in the case of an incorrect item, replace with the correct item if it is still available
  • replace with an alternative item of the same value

Please refer to returns/cancellation/refunds.



9. refunds

Refunds will be processed from the date I have received and inspected the returned artwork, and will be made within 14 days of that date. 

If all conditions have been met (see returns and cancellations), the refund for the total cost of the order will be issued. However, you will be responsible for the costs of returning the item to me.

  • The law enables the Artist to deduct an amount from your refund if you have diminished the value of the Artwork by handling it beyond what is necessary to establish its nature, characteristics and function – i.e. “unreasonable use”.

All refunds are made using the same payment method that you used to pay for the order. Please bear in mind that some payment methods mean that a refund may take up to 7 days to reach your account.
