Terms and Conditions 


Please use a low wattage bulb with all lampshades. 

I require a 50% deposit before I start painting. The design will vary as all lampshades are hand painted and therefore there may be imperfections! The lampshades are not lined so as to give more light and this means that brushmarks will be visible when the lamp is lit.  Please avoid any contact with moisture. Delivery for lampshades is £40 within the UK - they have to be very carefully packed. However please note that I cannot take responsibility for damage in transit and if the lampshades arrive in less than perfect condition I cannot replace them free of charge - another payment will have to be taken. I package them up extremely carefully so this is unlikely to happen, however courier companies will not insure lampshades made of card. Thank you for your understanding.


Portraits are drawn in either graphite pencil or red conte crayon on 50cm x 60cm acid-free white 320gm paper. The portrait will usually be approximately 17cm from top of head to tip of chin but this will vary according to the photograph. Delivery is £15 per portrait for Special Delivery postage and packing with in the UK.  A 50% deposit is required before I begin. I do not charge VAT.

Depending on the distance from my home in South Oxfordshire I will charge an extra mileage fee to photograph the subject(s). I will take several photos and we will choose one to work from. The digital photos are included in the price. However, it is of course possible for you to provide your own photos if they are suitable.

I will email the final drawing to you and any minor adjustments can then be made if necessary. 

For all commissions: 

A 50% deposit is required before I start the commission and full payment is required within 15 days please.  Postage is charged at £15 for Royal Mail Special Delivery, postage and packaging, except for lampshades which will vary according to size.  Once the work has been approved by email and then sent to the client any subsequent adjustments will incur extra postage costs.
