Help me Create Art

First of all, Thank you!

Thank you for all the support you’ve given me so far. Whether it’s a like , share or follow or you’ve commissioned a painting, or anything in between, Thank you! It means so much more than I can say with mere words. Without people like you, I wouldn’t be able to create the art I do. I promise to endeavor to live up to the trust you’ve placed in me.

Would you like to help me create art?

Like all artists, I rely on my audience, customers or fans to further the work. Supporting artists to create art is the only way an artist grows. Recently it’s been harder to reach that audience as exhibitions have all been cancelled. If you really love paintings like Harlequin Gherkin here and would like me to create more new ones, please consider helping me to get the word out there.

Spreading the Word.

Word of mouth is the easiest and best way for people to find out about what we do. Tell your friends about my art, show them examples like postcards, webpages or social media posts. Invite friends and family to exhibitions, bring a group with you. New people are always welcome and we love to meet your friends. Whilst not possible in the current climate, please consider it once lockdown is over and it’s time to visit those exhibitions.

Patronage

Financial Support can be as little as the price of a coffee. There are a number of ways from buying a card or book to paintings and commission.

Patronage schemes are a way to support creation of wonderful art and some allow you to spread the cost of paintings you want to buy. These vary from the price of a coffee on Ko-fi to monthly plans with benefits like regular mailed postcards or prints to VIP treatment at events.

Artist Support Pledge

Artist try and support one another, which is where the Artist Support Pledge comes in, help one and help others indirectly. All paintings are under £200 and when an artist has sold a £1000 worth of paintings they have committed to buy a painting from another artist.

Artist Support Pledge

As I said earlier, I will keep trying to live up to the trust you’ve placed in me and thank you for making it to the end of this page.

With love from the studio,
