_Music Inspired Art_
Jill Chromik on Mar 21, 2016
Not what I expected, but I am not completely unhappy, my Mom will like it.
A love for music inspires my Art
A life long love and appreciation of good music inspires the work that I make.
I work from my home studio in the small town of Manningtree in North Essex where I grew up.
Music has always been an important influence in my life, from the music that I play to that which I've listen to, so when it comes to my Art, I couldn't think of a more suitable subject matter. I feel you do a better job if you're actually interested in the subject matter of the art you're producing.
While painting a particular artist or band I often listen to their music while painting the portrait. I feel somehow that this helps to capture their likeness.
My work takes on several different forms, primarily painted portraits but also small freehand sketches and limited edition lino & mono prints.
Alot of my works are also framed by hand. I don't always sell works framed as often people like to choose frames themselves - but I will happily make a custom frame to fit a particular image.
Thanks for taking the time to look at my Etsy shop.
Every piece of work I sell here is unique and original, signed and dated by myself, and unless otherwise stated in the listing no prints will have been made of the piece.
Each piece is completed using quality materials (Windsor & Newton Acrylics and varnished to protect it and also to bring out the colour and detail in the work).
If the painting is on hard board, the board is firstly treated with strong sealing varnish beforehand.
All works are unframed and I always insure the edges of the works are neatly finished so that they can remain unframed when hung on the wall, but this is a personal choice and works can be framed if you wish.
I also add fixings on the back so the work is ready to be hung as soon as you receive it.
If you require more photo's of the work then please contact me either here or by email - jg.fineartist [!at] live.com and I will happily send you some.
Accepted payment methods
Payment must ideally be made within 7 days (unless you contact me to explain otherwise). If no payment is received within this time and with no communication I will have to cancel the order.

Accepted payment method UK:
UK - (if you don't have a Paypal account and would like to purchase a work, contact me as I will except cheques but this is a much slower payment process).
Please allow up to 7 days for payment to clear (where required - cheques).
I will send items via courier with tracking available and will let you know as soon as the item is on its way to you and what the estimated time of delivery is.
I will attempt to send out items to you as soon as I can after cleared payment, obviously this is dependant on how soon the courier can pick up the item.
If you require the item sooner then please let me know and I can arrange priority post, but this may cost a little more.
Items are automatically insured by the courier up to £50, but over this price the shipping cost is a little more due to added insurance, especially outside the EU.
Refunds and Exchanges
Also the painting must be returned in the condition it was sent in, I will not refund the cost until the painting has been returned and I have inspected the condition.
Refunds will be made by the same method the item was purchased. e.g. Paypal.
