What you will receive
Framed Original Painting
If you buy an original painting you will receive a unique, one-off, piece of art. I use the highest quality acid-free materials and the painting is professionally framed behind glass and using hand-finished black stained oak. I use white double mounts.
If you would like a different frame, just get in touch.
All originals are signed and come with a certificate of authenticity.
Limited Edition Prints
Limited edition prints are copies of an original painting. Mine are made by specialist companies using giclee on museum quality materials and meeting The Fine Art Trade Guild standards. They are available in three formats:
a framed limited edition paper print, which is framed in hand-stained black oak, like the original
an unframed limited edition paper print, which is loose and delivered in a postal tube so that you can get it framed locally
a limited edition canvas print , which is mounted on stretchers and ready to hang on your wall. The printing down the sides of the canvas is a mirror of the main image i.e. the whole painting is included on the front and no part is "lost"
All my limited editions are signed and come with a certificate of authenticity. Handwritten in the margin is the title, edition number and date.
What does 'Limited Edition' mean?
When producing prints from an original painting an artist can either make them 'open edition' (meaning they can produce as many prints as they like) or 'limited edition' (meaning they specify the maximum number that they will ever make). I limit all my editions to 50, meaning that no more than 50 will ever be made. This means that limited edition prints are more 'exclusive' than open editions
