Commissioning a work is considered to be a legally binding contract between yourself and the artist. You agree to pay for the artist’s labour and recieve the product of said labour. Hilary reserves the right to decline commissions for any reason (including none).
If you commission a painting, but change your mind before any work is started, your deposit will be returned in full.
A completed commission will be photographed and said photographs sent to you for approval. Should you accept, you have 28 days to pay for the commission in full, unless agreed beforehand with the artist. Paintings that are not paid for within this time will, as property of the artist, go on sale to the general public in order to recoup the value of the artist’s labour. Any deposit given for work is not refundable once work has begun.
If photography performed by the artist is involved in the production of a commission, it is included in the commission’s price. If the commission is then not paid for within 28 days, as above, you are liable for a charge of £100 for this service.
Commissions can be collected in person, or posted to you by agreement, once payment is recieved.
Customer’s details are never disclosed to any third party, and the artist guarantees your contact information will only be used persuant to the commission.
