Here I’ll try and answer a few of the questions I get asked regularly. If you have any other questions, please comment below, and i’ll add them with the answer.

Q. Can I use the brush sets for my school or college project/yearbook?

A. Yes, no problem. That’s not classed as commercial use. Although if you leave college and your portfolio contains the brush designs you might want to think about letting prospective employers know that you’ve used design resources and that its not your own work.


Q. How do I get a license to use the free brushes for my business?

A. Just email me, and let me know which set you want to license, give me your full name, and the address you use for paypal. I’ll send you your license and an invoice for payment.


Q. How much are your brush sets in US dollars?

A. Currently £5 (Pounds Sterling) is $10, but check the exchange rate at xe.com


Q. Can i pay in dollars/euros/yen etc?

A. Sorry, I accept only Pounds Sterling. BUT, when you pay with paypal, it does the conversion for you automatically at no extra charge.


Q. Can I use your brushes in digital scrapbooking kits to re-sell?

A. Yes, if you buy a commercial license.


Q. How much does it cost to get licenses for all your brush sets?

A. The cost is currently £50 (excludes the Illustrator sets).


Q. Can I use the brushes for print?

A. Only the premium brush sets are really big enough to use for printing. You may find the regular sets are too small – they’re best used online.


Q. Can you design me a personalised custom set of brushes for my business?

A. No problem, this is one of my most popular requests. Just drop me an email and we can chat about what you need and the cost (which may be a lot less than you’d think). I can also do clip art, textures or logos.


Q. What does commercial use mean?

A. Please read my Terms of Use page


Q. What are your business hours for answering emails/sending licenses?

A. I work Monday to Friday 9am – 3pm GMT. Very sorry, but any emails i receive after 3pm or at the weekend have to wait until the next day or Monday. (my son gets lonely if mum is on the computer the whole time!)


Q. Where’s the download page for the premium sets?

A. After you’ve been through the paypal checkout, you’ll be redirected to the download page (the continue button) . If you missed this step somehow, don’t panic, just email me and i’ll send you the file manually once i’ve received notification of your payment.


  1. If I purchase a Premium Brush set, do I need to purchase an additional commercial license, or do these come with one. When I looked at some of the premium brush sets they said they were for commercial use. Just wanted find out if this was extra, or included in the price.


  2. Yes, they come with one. Your paypal reciept acts as your proof of purchase and your right to commercial use.

  3. Hi I’d like to purchase a commercial license for swirls and seeds, if you could send me your contact information or email me back with how to do so it’d be greatly appreciated.

  4. are they compatible with cs3, just tried one of them as a test and it said it isnt compatible with cs3??????

  5. They should be compatible with CS3 as they are all made in PS7. Others have said they work fine, so I’m sorry not sure what to suggest, except to use ABRviewer to extract the images in the set as PNGs, which you you could then convert into brushes yourself

  6. hello, I am a small portrait studio in MO, USA. I would like to use the Japanese flowers brush set for a design in a client’s holiday card proofs. Is this available for license?

  7. Hi,
    I will possibly be using a pattern of yours for my dissertation, which I see is ok, but my dissertation is a website for a real client, so what should I do?
