How our paintings are produced:
All our reproductions are hand-painted by one of our skilled artists, all of who are very knowledgeable about the paints, techniques and brushstrokes of the original artist. We use only the highest quality linen canvas and Winsor and Newton Oil Paints. We DO NOT use any mechanical processes and your painting WILL NOT be undertaken by multiple artists in a production line process as is the case with many cheaper Chinese studios. We have 17 full time artists all specializing in a separate artist and genre.
Most of our paintings are supplied unframed:
This is for several reasons. Firstly, the majority of our clients wish to select a frame which will suit the decor of their home. Secondly, the mailing and insurance costs of delivering a framed painting is very high and even with careful packaging it is our experience that frame edges can be damaged in transit. We will consider framing and stretching requests on a case by case basis.
How and when your painting will be delivered:
Your painting will be delivered by air courier, usually FEDEX. The canvas will be packaged in a secure and rigid postal box to ensure its safe delivery to your door. International shipping is FREE. Most standard paintings featured are shipped within 14-21 days of receipt of order. Some paintings may take a little longer due to drying times. Whatever the situation with your painting, we will advise you accordingly and you can enquire as to its progress at any time, as well as track it on your personal tracking profile.
What about local taxes:
Local Taxes and customs duties are the responsibility of the purchaser when applied. We ship paintings to over 22 countries each year and as a general rule items that are " hand painted reproductions" do not attract local taxes, however if you are uncertain as to the policies of the customs office of your country we suggest that you contact them prior to placing your order.

Is my credit card safe?
Absolutely, in fact, according to the FTC, it's actually safer to use your credit card over a secure server on the Internet than to use it in a restaurant or department store.
