Terms and Conditions

These terms and conditions are for the benefit of you as the commissioner and me as the Artist.  Please take some time to familiarise yourself with them.  I would be happy to field any questions you might have.

I reserve the right to amend these Terms and Conditions at any time without prior notice.

Art by Shaun and Shaunmaloney.com rely on your honesty and openness at all times. 

By commissioning and/or ordering or by attending a session with me, it is taken as proof that you have read, understood and agree with the Terms and Conditions detailed here.

Cancellation of commissioned work is permitted but in all cases, will forfeit the deposit and may incur further charges that cover materials already used. Cancellations can be made by telephone, email or text (not via Meta platforms or Twitter ).   

You agree to provide the artist with comprehensive details of what you want created. At least one consultation between you and the artist will be necessary and will iron out the finer details. Once agreement on composition is reached, there will be no opportunity for further changes. A non-refundable deposit is required in all cases.

You agree to update the artist with information on any changes to your agreement that might affect completion, delivery or otherwise.

As far as possible, all work will be completed on archival quality paper and fixed using a proprietary fixative.

For yours and my security, all payments should be made through electronic bank transfer, but cheque or cash is also accepted.  My transfer details will be sent to you once you have confirmed your commission.  I regret I am currently not able to accept payment by credit/debit card.  Invoices can be provided upon request.

Assisted payments are available on arrangement.  I take pride in not allowing financial hardship to restrict access to artistic culture. 

Training with me

The following terms and conditions apply to all training courses, art sessions and 1-2-1 meets.

Art by Shaun and shaunmaloney.com make the commitment that the price you have agreed is what you pay, there are never any hidden extras.


Payment must be received in full prior to attending any event run by me.

My events can be booked up 6 – 12 months in advance. For this reason I will strictly adhere to the Terms and Conditions and associated Cancellation Scale.

Any deposit paid is non-refundable and non-transferable. Should you fail to pay your full fee on the due date of the invoice or prior to commencement of the course you will lose your deposit and unfortunately, your place will be released to someone else.

I urge you to get in touch as soon as possible if, for any reason, you have to cancel an agreed booking. Cancellations must be notified to me in writing.  The Cancellation Scale set out below will apply :

Less than 4 calendar weeks 100%

Less than 3 calendar months 75%

More than 3 calendar months 50%

Quite often I am asked to run training events at shorter notice.  If this is the case, then the above Cancellation Scale will not apply and a flat rate of 50% of the cost of the full course price will be applicable should you cancel within 4 weeks from the start date.

Cancellation by me

Any cancellation of a programme, seminar or event by me with no rescheduled date(s) offered will result in a refund being made in full.

Any cancellations of a programme by me with rescheduled dates, you will be given the option to attend the new dates or receive a refund in full.
