Illustrated Prints, Created from Original Paintings and Lettering
All of my Illustrated prints are created from original paintings - whether that's gouache florals, hand lettered quotes and typography, or glittering gold foiling, every single print starts life as a scribble in a sketchbook. I started creating prints from my paintings whilst I was still in university, and it was the sale of some of my very first British Bee Prints which gave me the confidence to continue creating designs and selling them in my shop.
Art Prints - Made in the UK
Discover my selection of beautiful, Illustrated art prints, created from my original artwork. Every print is designed be me, and the printing is sourced right here in the UK, absolutely wherever possible. It's taken many years to hone the production of my prints, and I have experimented with many suppliers to find the perfect balance of brilliance, texture, resilience and cost to create prints that reflect the original artwork, will stand the test of time, and come at a reasonable cost to you!
Over the years, I've found it's important for every print to be printed with thick, sturdy cardstock, to prevent any wrinkling in the frame, and to give it some resistance to creasing and bending when it comes time to switch around frames or artwork. That's why I always choose to use 300gsm or above cardstocks (which are a similar thickness to greetings cards) when I source my prints.
Eco Responsible Prints
I also try to use suppliers that work with Sustainably sourced papers wherever possible, to ensure that all paper products - no matter how long their lifespan - are responsibly sourced. To keep prints safe, dry and clean whilst on the shelves and on their way to you, they are packed in a cellophane bag made from biodegradable cellophane. Whilst recycling these is still not a perfect system - they will break down in industrial composting or inceration settings, which I believe is preferable to plastic for the time being.
