Buying Paintings

If you wish to buy one of my paintings I only offer two options

  • Paypal
  • Cash

I only use PayPal as an online method of payment because it is the safest way, that way you are in total control of payments and I only need a name, address and email address from you, which incidentally I will never share with anyone. This follows the 1998 UK Data Protection Act, the Law in the United Kingdom that controls how businesses stores your personal information.

Unfortunately the Cash option is only available if you are able to collect from Cornwall!
