Commission yourselfie a ‘Shelfie’

SHELFIES – the new selfies!


‘Slow Books’ rsw oil on canvas 2014 10″x20″

Above is the ‘Shelfie’ I painted for authors Carl Honore and Miranda France. These are the books that are special in their lives together.

Both the painting and the idea of a ‘Shelfie’ have been so popular that I thought it was time to market the idea more widely!!

Prices start from £195 for a standard 10″x12″ (about 8-10 books), £295 for 10″x20″, £325 for 12″x24″ (about 18-20 books) with a range in between!
