Marketplace Seller Profile | ArtGallery.co.uk
Based in Ilchester, Somerset UK, I’ve had a passion for Photography since my school days back in the 60’s. Of course the advent of digital, has allowed photographers like myself to be ever more creative with their work. My inspiration comes from an inner desire to capture the colour and beauty of a specific scene which if missed at that time, could be gone forever. The UK is a truly beautiful place to live and I feel privileged to be able to express this in my artwork. It is an absolute pleasure to be able to make my artwork available for all to enjoy. MY ARTWORK My artwork is a photograph that has been digitally modified by adding oil painting style brushstrokes. This process enhances the original photographic image, by adding texture and greater colour variations. Although a completely new and unique form of artwork is created, the content and composition of the original photograph remains ‘exactly the same’. This is an aspect of my work I feel very strongly about as if you start changing the content of the original photograph (the reason why you took the photo in the first place), that ‘magic of the moment’, could well be lost. ART PRODUCTION PROCESS My Art is applied to canvas using archive grade pigment inks and specialist matt varnish. I find canvas (aside from being extremely tough) provides the best format for producing rich vibrant colours, texture and depth. The specialist inks and varnish, also deliver excellent light fastness and the all-important resistance to UV light. Typically, my artwork can be expected to remain fade free and keep it’s ‘as new look’ for generations. The stretched canvas artwork is inserted into a traditional wooden picture frame. This option provides the best of both in that you have the beauty and longevity of art on canvas, inserted into a traditional style picture frame. The actual size of the artwork is 24” x 16” (60.96mm x 40.64mm). The outer frame will increase the artwork size slightly, so please bear this in mind when measuring your space. All artwork is delivered to your door ‘ready to hang’. Alternative frame options are available at no extra cost (this includes Gallery Wrapped). I can also offer this artwork unframed. Unframed artwork is sent in roll form, which allows the customer to frame it themselves. All Artwork is Limited Edition and will either be from a Limited Edition of 15, or a Limited Edition of just 3. This Limited Edition number is guaranteed by the Artist and confirmed in a signed and numbered Certificate of Authenticity. All orders are personally checked by myself before dispatch so they arrive on time and in perfect condition. All Artwork comes with a Care Sheet outlining best care tips.
I am so confident with the quality of my Artwork; I offer a no quibble 28 day money back guarantee. I do hope you like my Artwork but if you are in two minds about a purchase, please feel free to contact me and I will be more than happy to answer all your questions.
