About

Hello, I'm Jules and I would like to welcome you to my SmiffyStyle Shop and Art Gallery.

Having enjoyed a passion for art and design since childhood, I now
live and work as a professional freelance artist and designer in the
beautiful county of Cornwall.

I draw inspiration from many sources, particularly nature in all its glory
and I love to explore the colours, textures and mood of the changing
seasons and incorporate these into my paintings and illustrations.

My interests are not confined to the visual arts but encompass dance,
theatre, music, fashion and the exciting world of cinema all of which
have an influence on my work.

I work mainly in watercolour as I find the translucency of the medium
allows me to express the delicate fragility and movement in my flower
paintings and designs.
To begin the creative process, I like to make pencil and colour wash
sketches or take photographs of my chosen subjects and then produce
the finished painting in my studio.

I gained a wealth of invaluable experience in my early career as a
Greeting Card Illustrator and Art Director before becoming a freelance
artist and I have been fortunate to see my paintings, illustrations and
textile designs published worldwide.

As well as enabling me to reach a wider audience for my original paintings
with an on line gallery space, setting up SmiffyStyle in 2010
gave me the exciting opportunity to create my own unique range
of Handmade Greeting Cards and Limited Edition Fine Art Prints.
My recent move into a purpose built, spacious light studio with
scanners and printers close to my drawing board, enables me to
control the printing process. Paying close attention to colour detail,
I can consistently achieve the highest quality print reproduction.

It is my life long ambition to keep the art of hand painted illustration
alive and nothing makes me happier than creating beautiful art.
So, if you would like me to create something exclusive and special just
for you, please leave me a message in my 'Request a Custom Order' box
- I would love to hear from you.

Thank you for visiting my SmiffyStyle Shop and Art Gallery, where
a very high level of personal service is extremely important.
I do hope you have enjoyed the experience and look forward to
welcoming you back again soon.

The item must be returned in its original condition, unopened and in its original packaging.
The customer is responsible for the return shipping cost and any loss or damage in return transit.

I am afraid I cannot accept returns of Custom or Personalized Orders or Bespoke Commissions.

All my Watercolour Art Prints and Flower Art Greeting Cards are packaged in a clear protective sleeve.
Your order will be dispatched in a padded Mail-Lite Envelope with stiffener or a flat PIP box with waterproof outer for safety in transit.

I also offer a Personalized Gift Wrapping service for a small additional charge of £3.00.
This includes a paper wrapping with complimentary ribbon or raffia.
For orders marked as a 'Gift' I can include a Personalized Gift Tag for the occasion of your choice e.g. Birthday, Mother's Day, Wedding Congratulations, Christmas etc.

If you would like me to send your order directly to the recipient, I can include a personal message of your choice. No more than 50 characters please, due to limited space.

I endeavor to process all orders within 1 - 2 working days.
However, if an unexpected delay arises I will notify you immediately.

For Personalized orders, as a guide, please allow 2 - 4 working days to complete and dispatch your order.
This will allow time for me to prepare a layout and for you to confirm your details are correct by email. When I receive your confirmation I will process your order.
