Artwork to Love ... would you have anything else? I hope those who see and purchase my art get as much pleasure from the pieces as I have gained from creating them. The paintings are all original pieces – not reproductions on canvas or prints – only the 'real McCoy'. If you are looking for something unique, which you won't see anywhere else, or on anyone else's wall, then you are at the right place.
Additionally, if you have a colour theme or subject, or size you are seeking which is within the style of what I do, then I'd be happy to talk to you about a commissioned piece, created especially for you.
Please pop across to Art for Sale which is a gallery of my pieces to check out what is available in paintings and merchandise. Yes, you can even get art on mugs and bookmarks. Some artwork is framed, others are not. If you have a query about any piece, please drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
