General FAQ below, please read the store Terms and Conditions here before purchasing.
I paint with watercolour, gouache and ink. I prefer Dr PH Martins Hydrus watercolours for their intense hues, lightfastness and dropper system which is great for reproducing the same shade time and again. I also like Turner Acryl-Gouache and Golden Liquid Acrylics.What paper do you use?
I use Fabriano Artistico HP for watercolour painting. It is a Hot Press paper which means it’s smoother than Cold Press – it also means it’s less resistant to lots of water and layers – but is great for lining with pen or ink on a brush.What pens do you use?
Sakura Micron pens are my favourite for lining. Zig Memory are also good and a little more economical.Do you do commissions?
Unfortunately, I can't take on commissions at this time.
Probably, but please drop me a quick email to ask. By its very nature artwork is copyrighted to the artist the moment it is produced. It is illegal to reproduce my work in any form, printed or tattooed without prior written consent. That might sound heavy but it's true.
Generally I am of course very honoured if someone wants to get a piece tattooed but sometimes the piece has already been done and so would not be unique, or for personal reasons I may not want a certain item reproduced. Please respect that and just ask first. It's polite and I will be really grateful for it.Will you design me a tattoo?
I get asked this a lot and seriously I'd love to but I have to decline and here's why; tattooers are artists, it's their craft. A tattooer knows the intricacies of what translates well into a tattoo-able design.
Research artists, go to someone who has a portfolio full of pieces you totally adore and travel far to them if you have to, not someone down the street because they are cheap and easy to get to. Never choose an artist based on price. Email them with a short message about your general idea, placement and size, then take it from there and give them some creative freedom, this will help get you the best tattoo possible.
