Updates

Added some new Christmas gift tags to my store today. These are handmade to order and feature 6 of my festive tuxedo cat paintings. Discounts available when you buy 2 or more packs! relaxed
My OOAK handpainted wooden keyrings now come with handmade packaging, which I've also designed, making them perfect for giving as gifts.
I have a few new ACEO art cards in store! This dumbo rat wearing a bearskin hat is one of them. I have a bit of an obsession with animals wearing these hats at the moment so there may be a few more in the works. grinning

About

ACEO, Small format art, and OOAK hand painted gifts for animal & nature lovers!

I love small things! It's probably because I don't have a lot of space in which to put pretty things. I think I have just enough to swing that 'hypothetical' cat!

I know I'm not the only one with a love of 'pretty things' who also has limited space, so everything I create is small for that very purpose. To enable space-limited lovers of art & other pretty things to be able to display & enjoy the thing the love.

A lot of my artwork is very small. Everything I create rarely exceeds 12 inches on the longest side and I love creating ACEO sized illustrations and artwork most of all. These little paintings measure just 2.5 x 3.5 inches. As well as my paintings I also like creating OOAK (one of a kind) hand painted keyrings, magnets, and other unique gifts.

My inspiration is derived from my love of animals and nature. A whole array of furry & feathered friends tend to creep their way in to my creations and my main muse are cats.

I have a distinctive whimsical style of illustration which lends itself well to my paintings, especially my cats, but I also have other less well known styles which fans of my work may not know of or even realise is me.

I am a trained natural history illustrator and my early work followed this more 'true to nature' style. I still paint and produce artwork & illustrations in this style on occasions. I also like to produce vector & digitally painted illustrations & designs. These tend to be inspired by my love of kawaii and animals of course!

Frequently asked questions

Care instructions

Handmade Keyrings & Magnets -
Although protected with a tough varnish, please take care not to get these items wet. A light sprinkle should be fine but a swim in a puddle or trip to the u-bend may not.

Original Artwork -
Do not get wet. Paper doesn't like this very much. When framing please use a mount where possible so that the artwork doesn't touch the glass.

Custom and personalised orders

I am available for custom artwork requests. If it is to be for a gift please place an order at least 3-4 weeks before hand. I'm a busy little bee so I cannot guarantee a quick turnaround.

My most popular size for custom illustration is 5 x 5 inches (total paper size 6 x 6 inches.) This size costs £25 with free shipping in the UK. Shipping varies for international buyers.

Sizing details

I specialize in small format art so everything I create is less than 14 inches on the longest size. I do however prefer to paint a lot smaller than that and most of my work is either ACEO (Art Card Editions & Originals) or around 6 inches square.

Some of my more common artwork sizes:

2.5 x 3.5 inches (ACEO)
5 x 5 inches (total paper size 6 x 6 inches)
6 x 4 inches (total paper size 7 x 5 inches)
7 x 5 inches (total paper size 8 x 6 inches)

Gift wrapping and packaging

GIFT WRAPPING
I do not offer gift wrapping at this time. Sorry folks!

PACKAGING
I strongly believe in recycling and where possible I try to use either packaging made from recycled materials OR I reuse packaging from parcels that I've received and other types of cardboard. This means you may receive your artwork sandwiched between a crisp box, but we don't care about that. We care about the pretty things inside the crisp box!

International Shipping

I do offer international shipping on most items. Royal Mail Standard International Shipping is used on all items with a value less than £20. Royal Mail International Tracked & Signed is used for items with a value over £20.

MULTIPLE PURCHASES
In most instances, the Shipping Costs calculated at checkout will be correct. However, if you purchase a lot of small value items and/or non-bulky items* the Shipping Costs may not reflect the actual value. In these circumstances it is recommended to choose the Shipping Upgrade option if the value of your cart is over £20

*Additional ACEO purchases are free. If you purchase 5 ACEO at £10. Your cart total will be £50 but shipping will only reflect Standard Shipping (up to £20)
