How long does it take from when I order ?

Each painting is hand done so please allow please allow 10-12 working days from receipt of payment.  However if you need the painting before this, please call and I will do my best to complete the painting by the date required.  If this is not possible, I can put a ‘Hickory Dickory Art’ card in the post to the recipient to let them know a special piece is being created for them and will be “winging” its way to them shortly !

How is it shipped ? What are the costs ?

I use DPD Couriers for all shipping as they are fast reliable, have an excellent tracking service,  and ensures a next day delivery service once shipped. 

There is a flat shipping charge of Euro 9 nationwide in Ireland for all orders
This is the total charge for up to 6 paintings regardless of size. (small/medium)

If you would like it to be sent directly to the end recipient, please indicate this on the order form.

I live close to you in Wicklow, can I pick it up from you directly to avoid the shipping costs ?

Yes you are welcome to pick it up directly from my studio  Just specify this when you are ordering the painting and I will email you when it is ready for collection. Please note payment will need to be received in full prior to commencement of painting.

Can I change the colours in a painting?

Yes absolutely, as each painting is done individually, you can make whatever colour changes you want. However you must specify this at the time of ordering. Simply give the Code number of the painting and advise the colour changes.

Can you do a painting using a different animal or character that has special meaning to the recipient?

Yes of course I can, please contact me to discuss any particular requests you may have.  Please note however, that there is work involved in developing and drawing out a new concept, so there may be a small additional charge to provide this.

What materials / medium is used to paint them 

Each piece is handpainted in acrylic, on 100% primed cotton canvass, stretched on a 1 ½ inch deep edged frame. Expertly finished with a painted white border giving it definition against any wall colour and with no staples along the side,  they are ready to hang on the wall.

What if the butterflies/dragonflies get damaged?

The butterflies dragonflies and ladybirds used are surprisingly robust,  They are both hot glued and wired on so they will not ‘fall off’. However the painting are meant as a purely as a visual stimuli for a childs wall and not a toy to be played with. However I fully appreciate that accidents  - especially where children are concerned - can happen, so in the event that a butterfly or a wing etc becomes damaged, please contact me and I will post out a replacement butterfly which you can then attach yourself.
