    Affordable post-impressionist acrylic paintings on cardboard

    I'm primarily an acrylic painter, and I love painting on reclaimed materials such as cardboard boxes. It's more environmentally friendly than paper and canvasses, and means I can easily cut paintings to size, and even into unusual shapes.

    Painting on cardboard has been done by many famous artists - Picasso, Miro, Vuillard, Toulouse-Lautrec, Munch, Degas, and many French Impressionists. Properly cared for (framed behind glass or acrylic is best), paintings on cardboard can last for decades or even centuries!

    I'm heavily influenced by Post-impressionism and the Scottish Colourists. I like bold outlines, bright colours, and to have fun with what I'm painting.

    My subjects include portraits, nudes, animals, landscapes and still life.

      I love to create things; I find endless satisfaction in turning a bunch of materials into something tangible and (hopefully) interesting!

    Frequently asked questions
    Do you take commissions?

    Very rarely. I make much better work when I paint something that has inspired me or caught my eye. However if you love my style but really want something specific, contact me and we'll see if we can work something out.

    My painting never arrived, or arrived damaged. What do I do?

    Unfortunately, due to coronavirus, all postage is much slower.

    If an item hasn't "moved" in the tracking for a week or more, I'll check with Australia Post. Items usually cannot be declared lost until there has been no tracking history for at least a month.

    For damaged paintings, please send me a photograph and description of the damage. If your postie has crushed, creased or torn it trying to force it into your mailbox, I can't take any responsibility for that.

    Care instructions

    Ideally, you should frame your painting as soon as possible. In the meantime, leave it in the plastic it was shipped in to protect it from dust and moisture.

    Any enclosed frame will work. It does not matter if the front is glass or acrylic. Sealing the back of the frame with tape to prevent dust and moisture entering is strongly recommended.

    The paint I use is artist-quality meaning that under normal conditions it should not fade. However, it's possible that exposed areas of cardboard will, so hanging the painting in an area that receives little or no direct sunlight would be advisable.
