PURCHASING & SHIPPING
I want you to be happy with your new art. If you have any questions please contact me in advance at firstname.lastname@example.org
Every care has been taken to show the artwork as accurately as possible with regard to size and colour. The image you see online may show a difference due to slight variation between browsers, devices and screen settings. Any variation between the image represented and the actual artwork is not deemed a fault and slight inconsistencies will not be a valid reason for return.
How is my payment handled?
Payments are taken through PayPal, Wix payments and Apple pay in British Pounds Sterling. You do not need to have a PayPal account to purchase; you can use the PayPal service to pay with your regular debit or credit card. We do not store any of your debit/credit card details.
Please pay immediately as the artwork is marked as sold immediately and unavailable to others.
I have placed my order, how soon will I receive my painting?
Original paintings will be packed and shipped within 7 working days. Within the UK pieces are sent by Royal Mail, Parcel Force or courier depending on size and weight. Most UK deliveries arrive within 3 days from the time of shipping. Please allow 14 working days in total. If you need delivery by a specific date, please contact me first to make sure it can reach you in time. There may be an extra charge for rush deliveries according to your requirements.

Can I collect my artwork from your studio?
Yes, if you live in the Chippenham area you are more than welcome to collect from the studio Your order confirmation provides details for you to arrange this.
Is Shipping included at checkout?
Postage and packaging is included within mainland UK unless stated otherwise. Some higher value or larger artworks will have an additional shipping cost but this will be clearly stated at checkout.
What about large or high value artworks?
I appreciate this is a high value purchase – and a piece of work I have have spent much time on! It’s important for both of us to make sure it is transported safely.
Some couriers have limits on dimensions or what they will carry so certain pieces have individual requirements. This will be noted in the shipping details within each product listing. Shipping costs for large artworks need to be quoted individually – please contact me before purchasing. I will then contact you via email to discuss specialist shipping options before the artwork is dispatched. If you buy online first in order to secure the painting the shipping cost will be billed separately after agreement.
Can you ship internationally?
Yes, I can ship to most countries, although it will take longer to arrive depending on your location.
Please contact me so I can let you know how much the shipping costs will be. Overseas shipments (outside the UK) may be subject to import duties and taxes according to the laws of the destination country. Any additional charges are at the customer’s expense. We have no control over these charges and accept no responsibility for additional charges. Shipping costs contribute towards packing supplies, labour and transit.
What if my painting arrives and I don’t like it?
I want you to be fully happy with your new artwork so I offer a Buy-Back agreement.
If an original painting is not as you expect, you have 14 days to contact me by email and request a refund. Once a return has been agreed, you are responsible for packing and arranging return delivery using the same service it was sent to you. Once the piece has been safely returned I will refund your payment within 14 days.
What if my painting arrives damaged?
All work is carefully packed and wrapped. If you receive a work that has been damaged in transit, please contact me within 7 days with a photograph.
What about Overseas Returns?
At this time I am unable to offer a refund or return on any product(s) sent outside of the UK mainland.
I think that covers it all – if you have any further questions please send me an email before placing your order.
