A top quality, rolled canvas print – perfect for stretching or framing yourself. All prints have been specially designed to fit standard size wooden stretcher bars. We allow for full gallery wrap on 38mm stretcher bars: the image continues around the sides for a seamless look, rather than being mirrored which is the usual practice. You can frame it behind glass in a standard size frame or have it professionally stretched onto wooden stretcher bars to create a ready-to-hang canvas. Or, if you fancy a bit of DIY, you can stretch your own! Here’s a link to frame suppliers in the UK and US: canvasandstretcherbars.co.uk

From a mixed-media painting created on a vintage postcard. The handwritten side of the postcard forms the base for my artwork, which is variously hand drawn, collaged, transfer printed and painted with acrylic and inks before being thoroughly sealed with protective clear medium. Glimpses of the original text remain readable – other parts are obscured to make way for the painting. Some cards even have clearly visible postmarks and date stamps.

Alexandros in Crete combines one of my sketchbook drawings of a boat called Alexandros with a vintage postcard of Crete.
