I'D LOVE TO GET MY WORK INTO HOSPITALS AND LINE THEIR CORRIDORS WITH FUN DRAWINGS!

Bendy needs to spread the bend across this globe!
To date I supply shops and galleries in Holywood, Belfast, Bushmills and Coleraine. I would love to expand further and bring Bendy to Dublin, Cork and London someday! Just contact me for wholesale prices and let's see if we can bring on the bend! :)
I have had the awesome privilege of drawing and painting churches, homes, views and favourite buildings in my various styles.
Some buildings should not bent and some should!!
The most popular type of commission allows the client to pick and choose their favourite buildings and landmarks and then Bendy uses her creativity to compose a Skyline/Panorama which incorporates all these elements into a beautifully, unique and eye catching piece of artwork.
Some commissions are bendy, some are wonky and quirky and some are straight.....
Here's a slideshow of a small sample of some of my commissions!
WATCH SLIDESHOW BELOW!!
The final price is calculated:
1. The cost of time (£20 per hour)
2. Cost of the canvas type and materials
3. Postage and packaging
4. Any travel expenses
