There’s currently 20% of everything in my store. Sale runs until 18th February.
As you know all my items are handmade to order which means that I’ll be closing the books for Christmas orders in a day or so so order now to avoid disappointment. grinning

Traditional methods, modern aesthetic

I use the traditional methods and materials of sign painting and gilding to produce a range of unique and visually powerful images. Ranging from beautiful individual letters to a series of pictorial images all are fully customisable to suit your tastes and can be produced in colours and sizes to suit your own decor.

Each piece is produced in the same way. Firstly I paint with enamel paint directly onto the rear of the glass. Next real copper leaf, not foil or any synthetic alternative is applied using a traditional oil gilding technique. This gives a stunning finish as nothing has the texture and glow of real copper leaf.

I can also use this process to create something unique for you so if you have an exciting project in mind please don't hesitate to get in touch and owe can discuss your ideas.

Frequently asked questions
Gift wrapping and packaging

I will pack your painting with great care using quality shipping packing materials designed for art safe delivery. I am very aware that glass is a fragile material and so need very careful packaging. I have therefore gone to great lengths to source very robust boxes to ensure the safe delivery of paintings.

Is all your art hand painted?

Yes it is! Each and everyone is custom made and painted with great care to the highest standard. Of course with each one being hand painted they are not 'perfect' and minor variations will occur.

Do you use real copper and gold leaf?

I certainly do. Only real gold leaf gives the luxurious and beautiful finish that my pieces require so there's no fake or imitation gold and I certainly don't use foil. Most pieces are made using 23ct gold leaf but other slight variations, such as red gold, are available to. The same applies to the copper leaf and variegated zinc leaf used in some of my pieces.

Can you make anything else?

Again the answer is yes. I can literally make any letter, word, number or combination that you can imagine and if you have a letter from you particularly like I use that too. If you have something in mind please get in touch and we can discuss your requirements.

How long does it take to make each piece?

There are up to 8 or 9 individual processes involved in making each piece so it usually takes a minimum of 4 or 5 days.
