Public Terms of business

  • Payment to be made in three stages - at the acceptance of the commission - at the middle stage when painting has reached a certain development - final payment on acceptance of the painting as agreed with or without a frame.

  • Additional cost of frames  can be quoted for depending on size of work.

  • The painting remains the property of the artist until final payment has been made. I regret that stage fees cannot be returned.

  • Should for whatever reason a commission be cancelled by the client between stage two and stage three then payment in full is required.

  • Should the commission be broken by the artist a full refund with be provided and all work will remain the property of the artist.
