We specialise in producing limited edition prints from original canvases painted by our artist,
Alan Rimell. The original paintings are in acryllic and range in size from 20cm x 20cm upto
1m x 1.2m. It can take anything from 2 weeks to 3 months to complete each painting.

guaranteed by us but also by the commercial print company on the certificate of authenticity.
The paper and processes we use are not available to the general public

obtained commercially in volume.

On the flip side Alan, our artist, graduated in '85 (when you had to be
