SHIPPING AND CARING FOR YOUR PURCHASE.
All paintings are shipped unmounted and unframed unless otherwise stated. Note: I do not ship any painting under glass. Small paintings may be packaged flat between sturdy foam core. Depending on the size of the painting, smaller ones can be mounted at an extra cost. All other paintings will be shipped rolled in a tube.
When you receive them, gently remove from the tube and allow to unfurl naturally for 24 hours. After that, you can place a gentle weight on the paper to get perfectly flat again. It is important that watercolours are mounted using acid free mountboard and framed behind glass. Watercolour paintings should always be kept out of direct daylight to prevent fading over time, this will ensure your original artwork remains in perfect condition for many years. If you need any more help, please don't hesitate to contact me.
Actual colours vary depending on monitors they are viewed on. This is due to the fact that every computer monitor has a different capability to display colours and that everyone sees these colours differently. I spend a long time editing photos to show the products as true to colour as possible, but please understand the actual colour may vary slightly from your monitor. I cannot guarantee that the colour you see accurately portrays the true colour of the product.
I want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase. If for some reason you are not satisfied you can return the goods within 14 days of receipt. You can choose to have a refund, exchange or credit.
All products must be returned in new (undamaged) condition, in original shipping container and be returned with all accompanying certificates and paperwork you received with your order You must email me in advance of your return to receive authorisation.
Once you receive authorisation, the returned item must arrive back in my studio within the (14 days UK) (21 days for overseas) of authorisation. The cost of returning the item will be your responsibility, but I would be happy to deduct it from a further painting if required. When returning the item, you must ensure that it is not lost or damaged in transit by sending fully tracked and insured. Please note that it can take up to 7 days for the item to reach its destination, so make sure you allow enough time. If you would like to exchange your purchase, please contact me first.
