Purchasing the Art

Purchase and Postage

  • This site lists recent works and gives you the option either of making an enquiry, or purchasing via Paypal, or both. For smaller works, the cost of postage is included in the price, and they may be purchased here directly using Paypal. For larger works, the option is to enquire first, to discuss postage or delivery, before the final cost is established.
  • If you are interested in commissioning a work, just email me at stella.clarke@outlook.com.
  • Payment may also be made by direct bank transfer, so please ask if this is your preference.
  • If you live locally to Ballarat, pick up or delivery from the studio is available.
  • If your chosen artwork is to be sent by post once payment has gone through, the painting will be delivered to you well-packaged, tracked and fully insured.
  • If you live further away, interstate or overseas, shipping will need to be factored in to the final cost so please enquire/contact the artist before purchase.

Viewing in Person before Buying

Outside of a pandemic situation, my works may be viewed either at the studio gallery, or at other galleries that carry consignments of my work.  Appointments can normally be made to visit the studio at Blue Stone Cottage in Haddon by calling or texting me on 0475521501, by emailing stella.clarke@outlook.com or by using the contact form on this site.

Pricing

As regards both the pricing and quality of artworks, we aim for consistency (regarding studio or other gallery stock).  Pricing is dependent primarily upon the size of a painting. By way of example, the range of pricing is between $490.00 for a 30 x 30cm painting, up to around $8000 for a work approaching 2m in width. Framed works require higher pricing. Prices increase slightly over time, to accommodate rising costs amongst other factors. Multiple purchases, or buyers who collect the artist's work can achieve favourable terms upon enquiry.

The Presentation of Paintings from the Studio

All paintings are created in oils or acrylics on high quality canvas and stretchers.  They are signed on the front and on the back.  They are ready to hang.  Some may also be expertly framed, and that information will be available with the image.

When purchased via this website, buyers will be presented with a Certificate of Authenticity, along with records of the transaction which will establish their painting's provenance.

Returns

Every endeavour is made to provide images and details about artworks that are fully representative. Buyers may rely upon the fact that the artist's work is of a consistent quality. We hope that buyers are very happy with the work they have chosen when it arrives. 

We would advise that before taking the option to purchase, you have a look at our 'Top Tips' page.

Returns and refunds may be possible, and your reason should be discussed immediately upon receipt, by contacting the artist.
