We are continuing to ship to the EU
Following Brexit, the rules around VAT and import duty on EU shipments changed and are unfortunately extremely complex. If shopping from the EU you can select your country and will see prices in EUR exclusive of TAX or duties. EU customers are now responsible for any VAT or import duty payable on any delivery from us. These charges are out of our hands and if applied to your order will be payable to customs in the destination country. We will provide full commercial invoices and are unable to label your parcel as a gift.
Many of our gift items, homeware, jewellery and wall art (including mini and standard prints) will take 1-3 working days to make and dispatch. Delivery is usually next day following dispatch.
XL and XL Giclee prints may take 7-10 working days for dispatch.
Please allow around 4 weeks for canvas shipping.
Small items such as cards and notepads will be posted using Royal Mail First Class post.
Everything else will be sent using a tracked and insured shipping service.
Proof of postage and delivery is always obtained.
Yes, we ship all over the world! VAT is calculated based on your shipping location. If you are within the UK the prices on the website will be displayed inclusive of VAT @20%. If you are shipping outside the UK (including to the EU after Jan 1st 2021) you will not be charged VAT so you will see a reduced price. Any import duty or customs fees are the buyers responsibility. We have tried to estimate prices for most countries but if shipping to your location ends up being significantly different to the price we charged you, we reserve the right to cancel your order or request you pay extra for shipping.
In the unlikely event that your item arrives damaged or faulty please get in touch and the situation will be resolved quickly. Damaged items will be replaced or refunded. You will be provided with a pre-paid returns shipping label for your item.
In accordance with distance selling regulations, items (except earrings, for hygiene reasons) can be returned for any other reason within 14 days of delivery and a complete refund (excluding shipping), will be given.
Please return items along with a returns form or your order number to:

All our products are designed and printed in the UK, most of them at our workshop in Scotland.
Cath creates and designs at her studio on the Isle of Skye and also has a workshop in Grangemouth in central Scotland. All our ceramic gift products, including tiles, mugs and coasters, all our wood block art and all our jewellery are printed and finished by a small team at Cath’s workshop. We produce most of our own giclee prints too, and either frame them ourselves or send them to our framers in Edinburgh. The rest of our products, e.g. cards, notepads and table mats are produced in the UK as locally as possible.
Buying a gift card is simple, just choose the value of the card and then we will email your e-card to you. You can then print it out or forward to the recipient. Gift cards are valid for 1 year.
A Giclee is a print produced using a fine art digital high resolution printing process which uses pigment (rather than dye) based inks and extremely high quality archival / museum grade paper to achieve prints of superior detail, light fastness and stability. We do most of our own Giclee printing to ensure our prints are of the highest quality. We only print on archival quality, cotton rag, fine art paper. When combined with our 12 colour pigment ink printing system, we can achieve perfect colour reproduction and produce beautiful prints that will look as good as new for 80+ years.
Digital collage can mean any form of collage assembled or created using a computer. My process starts off on location where I take digital photographs of the landscape. Back in the studio I use a computer to blend the landscape photography with sections of additional photographs to add texture, colour and depth. Examples of these “textures” are shown below. They can be photographs of painting or mixed media or photographs and scans of surfaces such as rocks, peeling paint, scratched metal, rust, fabric, old paper….all sorts of unusual things. Each finished piece might have between 10 and 20 layers of collage in addition to the original landscape photograph.
The process used to combine the collage elements is digital so no physical originals exist.
Mini and Standard sized prints are available to buy ready framed here on the website. Frams can be seen below. Larger pritns are usually shipped rolled in poster tubes for you to take to your local framer.
Our XL and XXL Giclee prints and canvases are all signed, titled and numbered Limited Editions. Smaller Giclee prints are signed and titled open editions. Edition size may vary for specific images but is always 250 or less. Please ask if you require more info.
We try to be as accurate as we can with our product images but please be aware that colours will vary slightly depending on your monitor and browser settings.
