How and when should interested collectors contact you?
An email or message via instagram anytime. I will get back to you very promptly.
Do you accept commissioned projects?
What are your payment terms?
I accept payments via bank transfer or PayPal. For commissions, I invoice for 50% of the sale price and them I invoice for the balance and any postage fees once the work is complete and ready to ship.
Do you offer installment payment plans?
Yes, I'm open to chat about what works for the collector in terms of a prolonged payment.
What shipping options do you offer?
I ensure that collectors of my work get a good deal on shipping. I don't want shipping to be the difference between a collector purchasing a work and deciding not to. I use Pack and Send for medium to extra large National and International deliveries and NZ Post for smaller pieces and limited edition prints. I deliver for free in Christchurch and I allow collection from my studio on Lyttelton.
Do you sell to overseas collectors?
Absolutely, many of my collectors are not New Zealand based, I have a great shipping company so logistics are not a barrier.
Do you accept wholesale purchases from corporate art consultants, architects and interior designers?
I offer a 'designer rate' to art consultants, architects and interior designers. Im passionate about supporting fellow designers/creatives and Im keen to work with them on enhancing their projects. If the designer rate applies to you please email me for more detail.
In what galleries is your art currently available?
Please visit the happenings page on my website for past, current and future showing of my work.
Are you interested in being contacted by galleries or agents?
Im open to projects and show options in Europe, the UK and the USA.
Do you accept visitors at your studio?
Yes, by appointment I do. Please email me or message to arrange.
If you print limited editions of your originals, what is the size of the edition?
All limited edition archival pigment prints that I have done so far have been an edition of either 5 or 8. I like to keep the runs nice and small. I don't print a lot of my work but occasionally I feel one of my works will print fabulously so I cant resist. I work with Megan who is a fine art printing specialist to create limited edition fine art pigment prints. I then sign, name and number each print.
Does your work come with a certificate of authenticity?
My framed work come with a signed authenticity sticker on the back showing date, size, medium, edition and other relevant information. My unframed work has a sticker included for the collector to attach to the work once it has been framed.
Do you help customers with the selection of frames for your artwork?
I invite input from the collector when it comes to the framing of my work if they are seeking to be involved in this part of the process. Im also happy to take charge and frame the work with what I believe is the best option. I have a local framer, Malcolm here in Lyttelton and I have an Auckland based framer who I can highly recommend.
