    Meet the artist

    Justine Pateman

    I have sketched, drawn and painted things for as long as i can remember. Its been the one continuous life long hobby for me…..and now its my day job.
    Growing up on the outskirts of London i was lucky that i could jump on a train and get into the centre to visit all of the galleries and museums quite frequently. I spent many afternoons sketching sculptures and famous works of art.
    Formal Art study ended for me after A levels (6th form) i didn’t feel engaged for some reason. I had won the school art competition and i guess i must have felt like i had reached my zenith ! Other things then filled my life but i always loved everything that is art.
    I love many different genres of music, literature, films, nature and of course Art in all of its forms. What i most admire is how much effort all of the people involved have expended trying to create something different. Some have given their whole lives at great personal expense in the pursuit for something new.

    Custom & personalised orders

    I am currently taking commissions but please bear in mind that if you request an item such as a print featuring a new design that it is the artwork you are paying for – please don’t expect to pay the same price as a standard item. Designs can take several weeks of hard work to create and I charge accordingly. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss possibilities.

    Gift notes & packaging

    I can also include gift notes free of charge, and send orders directly to your recipient.

    Please ensure that you include your message in a note with your order, and set your delivery address to your recipient’s address.

    I have been working hard to reduce my packaging and be as green as possible. I have removed bubble wrap and other plastics where possible (any bubble wrap I do use has been re-used from parcels I have received), using bio-degradable and recyclable alternatives such as tissue paper.
