How to go about buying directly from an Artist……

When you buy directly from an artist you are not paying a middle man! This makes most artists very happy as galleries can take up to 50% commission! Yup – staggering isn’t it!

So if you are looking for art and are reading this page you are making an artist very happy!

One of the big benefits of buying directly is you have a one-to-one relationship with the artist, who will tell you about the art, the inspiration, the techniques etc.

I have discovered over the years that I seem to have a connections with the people who love and buy my art and have made some great friends.

So do say hello! Here is my email

Telephone 07711 903537

Even after all these years I still find it a wonderful honour when someone hangs my artwork on their walls!

It doesn’t matter if it is a cartoon for £50 or less or a big oil painting for £5000 the feeling of joy is the same!


Thank you to everyone who has ever bought a painting from me.

As an artist I prefer to sell directly as I get to meet the person who loves my work! That is SO important to me. As I mentioned before there is a connection. Going through a gallery that connection is lost. I do value galleries but I value the experience of meeting buyers more. I like seeing my paintings through your eyes. I learn that way.


Do you have any other questions about owning an original art work? I am happy to answer your questions if I can …


So how do you go about buying? 

Phone, email or adding to cart will reserve your painting. 

Do then make contact with me as soon as possible, so we can check that we both have the same painting in mind and you can ask any questions. Also to make arrangements about postage, delivery or pick up.

Postage and Packaging may be an additional cost but postage and packaging will be charged at cost, so no hidden horrors!

Please allow me time to wrap and send your work, but I will communicate with you when it is sent and when you should expect it to arrive. I endeavour to be prompt!

You are welcome to visit my studio to collect or view your art work.

If you are not happy with your painting after purchase I am happy to refund on the return of the artwork in good condition.  Please let me  know within a week of receiving if you wish to return.

Refunds will be given if full (less postage and packaging costs).

I am happy to report that I have never had a painting returned but it is good to have peace of mind that the option is there!

I love visitors so email me if you would like to visit my studio near Lanark, South Lanarkshire, Scotland

A warm welcome and cup of coffee will be waiting …
