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

OR EVEN CHILDRENS' HOSPITALS! THIS WOULD BE QUITE AWESOME!

EVEN A BENDY GLIDER BUS!

 

WHOLESALE/BULK ORDERS

I have also been chufffed to be asked by retailers and shop owners if I can supply them with my work to sell in their gorgeous shops and galleries. 

 

If you are interested in adding some fresh, vibrant and unique gifts to your shop, OR if you would like to use my drawings for advertising/merchandising purposes, just drop me an email and we can get together over  a coffee! SEND EMAIL

 

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!
