Our canvases are made bespoke in the UK, they are hand made using the highest quality materials - wood from sustainable sources plus Italian or French Linen canvas. The subject / scene will fill the whole of the canvas.
Our pencil portraits are also bespoke and are drawn to fit the size of paper you have ordered. Head studies will have approximately a 2 inch space between the image and the edge of the paper. Portraits with backgrounds will be drawn with approximately 1 inch space around the edge of the paper. This will allow the framer to attach a mount / matt to the portrait and you will have gained the largest possible sized drawing on the size you have ordered.

Framing is optional, however we can highly recommend our wonderful framer Jane who frames our portraits for us - Framing Section. Jane's framing workshop is in our next village so its very handy for us to pop and see her at any time. She has an excellent range of mouldings and will always try to meet our clients requests. Pencil portraits are framed for UK customers only as we prefer not to send glass overseas.
Due to the high value of our portraits, we choose to send them with the best possible service, so that we know we can reply on them 100% to delivery our paintings safely, securely and in good time. We use Parcel Force for the majority of our deliveries using the 24 hour tracked service, or for overseas deliveries we use their tracked delivery with their estimated arrival date service.
For smaller portraits and many pencil portraits for overseas delivery we use Airsure or International signed for. For more information and to view how and what goes into the packing of our portraits, please view a number of portraits being packed in our Facebook packing album >>
