works of art

All artworks are signed by the artist and where appropriate, numbered according to the edition size.

Archival pigment prints are printed on demand on the paper stated beside the image.  The paper and ink used is of archival quality and accredited by the Fine Arts Guild. In ‘normal conditions’ these can last up to 200 years. Lead times for pigment prints are around 5-10 working days.

Please note that there may be a slight variation between the colours of the artwork as viewed on the website and the actual printed colours.  This is because computer screens vary and colour levels may differ from the actual artwork. We do our best to display images of a true match to the original artwork.

All prints are sold unframed and are of a delicate nature.  To preserve your print, please avoid excessive handling, particularly the printed area and ensure that your print is framed under glass as soon as possible by a reputable framer. 

If your print has been rolled for shipping, carefully unfurl it and place face down on a clean surface for a few hours before framing to allow it to flatten itself.  Do not attempt to roll it the other way as this can cause creases.

Once framed, avoid hanging the artwork where it will receive prolonged exposure to direct sunlight, damp conditions or direct heat.

TEXTILES

Our cushions are made to order by hand in our Brighton studio so there may be a fractional variation in size.

We carry limited amounts of stock and cushions visible on the website are offered subject to availability at the time of ordering. Should an item be out of stock there may be short delays in delivery and we will notify you immediately. Lead times for cushions can be 2-3 weeks according to the quantities ordered.

Every care has been taken to ensure that descriptions, measurements, colours and prices are correct. Please note that there may be some variation in the colour of goods shown on the website due to the limitations of photographic and web processes and we cannot be held responsible for any variations in colour that may arise caused by your browser or computer software. If you are aiming to colour match and you would like a fabric sample then please contact us with your request.

We reserve the right to amend prices in the event of a change in our direct material costs.

Please get in touch if you would like to make a bespoke or multiple item purchase as these will be treated as a custom order.
