FRAMING AND CONSERVATION ISSUES
Due to the expense and difficulty of insuring glazed work all pieces on this site are sold unframed. Some smaller pieces and prints may come mounted, please see individual listings for exact details. I am happy to arrange framing for anyone who is able to collect from my studio in Suffolk. Please enquire via the Contact Me page if you are interested in this service.
Fading and conservation
Each piece of artwork is sent out with a sheet of helpful information and tips. Only stable pigments and high quality materials are used to produce artwork. Nevertheless artworks on paper are fragile. It is vital that the work is properly framed and correctly hung. Absolutely no claims or responsibility will be entertained for degradation of work that has been improperly framed or hung in an unsuitable environment. Fading can also be minimized and usually avoided by careful hanging Please note that by their very nature collaged pieces are more liable to fading. This should be considered as an intrinsic part of the artwork, and the artist is not responsible for this.
