This Privacy Policy describes how personal information is collected, used, and shared when you visit or make a purchase from me via, social media, my studio, or venues where I hold workshops, demonstrations or exhibitions, both in the UK and overseas.


When you make a purchase from me, book a place on a workshop or book me to teach or demonstrate, I may collect certain information from you, including your name, billing address, shipping address, payment information (including PayPal, bank transfer and credit card numbers), email address, and phone number. If you complete a subscribe form either via my website, email, or a paper version, I will keep your information but will also ask you to confirm by email (Double Opt-In) and you can unsubscribe at anytime.


I use the information that I collect generally to fulfil any orders, processing your payment information, arranging for shipping, sending pre-workshop information, and providing you with invoices and/or order confirmations. Additionally, I use this information, when in line with the preferences you have shared with me, to provide you with information or advertising relating to my products or services.


I only share your Personal Information with third parties to help me use your Personal Information, as described above. For example I may use Royal Mail or Parcel Force to post out artwork. Additionally, please note that your information may be transferred outside of Europe, including to the United States. For example, the mailing system I use is Mailchimp which is based in the U.S. and therefore your contact details are held in their system.

Finally, I may also share your Personal Information to comply with applicable laws and regulations, to respond to a subpoena, search warrant or other lawful request for information we receive, or to otherwise protect our rights.

As described above, I may use your Personal Information to provide you with targeted information or marketing communications I believe may be of interest to you. For more information about how targeted advertising works, you can visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s (“NAI”) educational page at

Please note that we do not alter our Site’s data collection and use practices when we see a Do Not Track signal from your browser.

If you are a European resident, under GDPR Legislation you have the right to access personal information I hold about you and to ask that your personal information be corrected, updated, or deleted. If you would like to exercise this right, please contact me through the contact information below.

Additionally, if you are a European resident please note that we are processing your information in order to fulfil contracts I might have with you (for example if you buy artwork or book me to teach), or otherwise to pursue my legitimate business interests listed above.

When you buy a piece of art or book me to teach a workshop I will maintain your email and contact details for my records unless and until you ask me to delete this information.

I may update this privacy policy from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to my practices or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons.

For more information about my privacy practices, if you have questions, or if you would like to make a complaint, please contact me by e-mail at [email protected]
