Read new customer reviews

This whole art business thing is one of the biggest learning curves – every tiny step brings a new insight but what has struck a chord with me most of all is how customers like to engage with the artists they buy from. Investing in artwork is a more emotional purchase than say buying a new coat or a washing machine for example and it pretty much equates with the pleasure you get from booking a holiday. Almost.

Artwork lasts. It doesn’t break down, wear out and become unfashionable.

If you have been thinking about buying a print or an original to add to your collection you may be interested to read reviews from some of my recent customers.

I contacted a few customers who had bought paintings and prints over the previous three months and asked for some feedback. I told them that I wanted to post their responses semi anonymously and I was pleasantly reassured at the positivity and willingness of everyone I emailed.

The page is looking great – even if I do say so myself. I feel proud that customers value the care I put into ensuring great quality prints and finished originals. I use Royal Mail tracking so that I can see when the customer receives their print. It is more expensive but I think most people prefer to have the reassurance of tracked delivery. I loved all of the reviews but this one from Alex, a customer who lives in Bristol, just bowled me over.

“Having a painting of Mary’s on my wall at home brings me daily joy. Her work is stunning. I was lucky enough to be invited into her studio after contacting her to say how much I admired her work. It was such a pleasure to go and see where these beautiful paintings are created. A tremendously difficult decision choosing but I fell in love with The Madonna.

“Mary was also kind enough to let me pay for the painting in instalments which we agreed upfront with a contract. The communication was frequent and friendly and Mary even went out of her way to bring the painting to its new home. I will be forever grateful for giving me this opportunity, it helped me afford a piece of unique art that produces so much happiness and inspiration in our home. It is beautiful, thank you Mary.”

Online shop update

My online shop has been updated to make it easier for customers to buy. I have introduced links on the website from each print currently available in the on-line print shop so that each print can be viewed and then followed up with a simple click through to the shopping trolley in my Etsy shop.

New prints will be added shortly as the product range expands. I will also soon be adding cards and small originals to the range.

Have a look at the newly updated print shop here.

Customer feedback has been amazing and when I asked a few people if they would be happy to give reviews – everyone I asked came back with comments that have overwhelmed me with their positivity and evident happiness with the prints, originals and my delivery service. These reviews are now posted in the ‘What customers say’ section.

Here are a few snippets from the comment section:

‘Having a painting of Mary’s on my wall at home brings me daily joy. Her work is stunning.’ Alex – Bristol

It took less than 2 weeks from the time I paid for it until it arrived at my door. (Considering it came across the Atlantic, I think that’s exceptional!). Suzannah – Arkansas, USA.

I want people to be confident when they buy that I really do care about delivering quality reproductions and originals and ensure that work is posted securely and within time scales promised using tracked delivery.

Here is my latest print that will be added to the shop later today. ‘Love is in the air’. The original is currently gracing the window of Room 212 Gallery in my home town of Bristol but prints are available for £45.00 plus postage and packing.
