About Tom Johnstone, Artist.
Tom Johnstone was born in Greenock and still lives in the Inverclyde town. Tom’s knowledge of local history has inspired his work over the years.
His eye for the area's vernacular architectural detail and its scenic beauty makes his work much sought after by residents, expatriates and visitors.
Tom also draws a weekly cartoon strip for the Greenock Telegraph newspaper.
Over the years he has been recording the demise of local industry, the old tenemented streets, public houses, picture houses and the once numerous dance halls, all of which have now disappeared, also those local worthies and characters who once enlivened our streets.
Tom's paintings are to be found in public and private collections at home and abroad.

I TRY TO PLEASE THE CUSTOMERS AND I HAVE FREQUENTLY REFUNDED THE COST OF POST IF IT IS LESS THAN AN ESTIMATE.
IF YOU WISH FOR A NON-SIGNED FOR SERVICE, AS THIS SERVICE DOES NOT MEET WITH MY CONFIDENCE, BUT TO PLEASE YOU, I CAN AGREE TO SEND WITHOUT THE "SIGNED FOR" BIT, SAVING ABOUT £5, ON THE CONDITION THAT IF IT IS LOST IN THE POST THEN I WILL NOT OFFER A REFUND.

I accept : PAYPAL - the preferred payment method, but FOR UK BUYERS ONLY I will accept Cheques, and Postal Orders or NO CASH TO BE SENT AS I HAVE READ THIS IS AGAINST EBAY RULES.
I am willing to post worldwide and send different products - mainly prints, of different weights and sizes all over the world so I cannot normally quote postage costs in advance, as each item differs and I need to pack it and take to the Post Office first, to obtain the correct price and as some may or may not be sent with the glass as per the buyers request I cannot often pack prior to the completion of the sale.
Refunds may be given if the item is not described accurately, and will be made ASAP after the item has been returned, although your postage and packing costs for the return of the item will not be refunded.
