3. Product information
I will try to keep any information provided in product descriptions up to date but cannot be held responsible for any changes made by suppliers that I am not made aware of which unfortunately tends to happen more than you will ever know in this industry.
If you have received any art materials that are not what you are expecting for whatever reason you are free to return them within 14 days of receipt for a full refund. Please ensure however that you contact me first to arrange this as some items may need to be returned to different addresses.
4. Right to cancel
Hopefully you won’t want to but if you do you have the right to cancel the purchase of a good without having to give a reason at any time within the “cooling off period” of fourteen working days, beginning on the day after you receive the goods.
If you are in possession of the goods you are under the duty to retain them and take reasonable care of them. You must send the goods back to me to the address provided at your own cost (unless I sent the item/s to you in error or the item/s is/are damaged or defective) as soon as possible once you have contacted me to inform me of your intent to return.
I reserve the right to make a charge not exceeding any direct costs of recovering the goods if you do not return the goods or return them at my expense.
Any amounts taken for returned goods will be refunded to you as soon as I am in receipt. Although I process refunds immediately sometimes there can be a short delay with the payment service providers getting the money back to you so please allow up to 14 working days for any refund to show up in your bank account before shouting. I’m an artist and very sensitive so I don’t like people shouting at me.
You will unfortunately not have any right to cancel a purchase for the supply of any of the following goods:
- Commissioned or personalised Artwork
- Audio or Video Downloads
- Desktop/Screen Savers

(Notice will be deemed received and properly served 24 hours after an email is sent or three days after the date of posting of any letter.) In providing the service of any notice, it will be sufficient to prove, in the case of a letter, that the letter was properly addressed, stamped and placed in the post and, in the case of an email that the email was sent to the specified email address of the addressees.
