A Limited Edition Print is a reproduction of an original piece of artwork. Every limited edition print that we offer is produced to a strictly fixed number which protects its authenticity and increases it’s value and collectability. All Limited Edition prints are numbered in sequence, and hand signed by the artist.
A Hand-Embellished print is usually an open edition print that the artist has re worked. After producing the prints the artist will re-visit the print to work further on the picture adding extra details with a chosen medium often Acrylic, Oil’s or Pastels. No two Hand-Embellished prints look the same the artist will always add slight variations to the image adding individuality and value.
A Lithograph print is produced by scanning the original painting on to limestone with a wax based printing ink before printing onto paper. This is a traditional method invented in 1796 that has been adapted to modern printing machinery.
A Giclee print is produced by scanning the original painting and printing through the use of a very high resolution Inkjet Printer. The name originally came from the use of Iris printers in the 1980’s but has stuck with the technique as it has developed with modern day technology.
An original piece of art is a piece that has been created by the hand of the artist. Original art can produced through a wide variety of media’s including Oil’s, Acrylic’s, Stone and Glass. We offer a wide range of original art work and where possible we ensure that all of our available work is available online.
All of our original pieces of art come with both a bespoke certificate that is signed by the artist and ourselves as well as a VAT receipt.
