Bring the Outside In With Canvas Prints of Local Original Artwork 


When Ross and I first opened our Cullercoats gallery in 2019, we came with over ten years’ of experience in self-publishing art and greetings cards of my paintings and mixed media artwork. During that time, I didn’t just develop my skills as an artist, but also my knowledge of printing and production.

For me, being a professional artist isn’t just about selling the final original piece, it’s also something I want to make accessible to people. That’s why, over the last few years, I have spent time exploring different ways of printing my artwork so it can be available for a wide range of budgets and tastes.

One medium I have yet to explore (until now!) is canvas prints. This gives you the look of an original painting, but closer to the price of a print. You can now choose any of my limited edition prints as a canvas print. Plus, a hand-picked selection of images are available as open-edition canvas prints at an even more affordable price.

Each canvas print is signed and numbered and comes with a certificate of authenticity. They are crafted on premium canvas with lightfast digital inks and safeguarded with UV varnish, ensuring the design stays bright and crisp for years to come. 

The canvas prints are made to order, taking around 2-3 weeks from order to production and quality control. We will contact you when your print is ready for you to collect in person from our art gallery in Cullercoats. So, if you are looking for an extra special gift for a loved one this Christmas, then now is the perfect time to get your order in.

Trying to decide between a canvas print and a limited edition print? Or want to learn more about framing these new pieces? Keep reading and all of your questions will be answered.

What’s the difference between a normal print and a canvas print?

Printing a piece of original artwork like mine isn’t the same as a photograph, or even another style of painting. Whether you invest in a canvas print, a limited edition print, or simply purchase a greetings card, I always want to make sure nothing is lost from the original piece.

The difference between a standard print and a canvas print is in the material it’s printed on. A canvas is printed on Innova Exhibition Matte Poly Cotton Canvas 360gsm, and then stretched around a mounted wooden frame, whereas my existing collection of limited edition prints are printed on high-quality Giclee 230gsm paper, and typically posted or collected in a rolled tube to protect the piece.

My canvas prints are archival and protected with two coats of Giclee varnish. The canvas stretcher bars are made from EU-sourced pine, which is FSC-certified and kiln-dried with less than 8% moisture content.

They are printed using Epson K3 Ultrachrome HD Pigment Inks, ensuring they always retain the intensity and detail of the original piece. 

In terms of cost, my limited edition paper prints start from £130 and the canvas prints start from £200 unframed and £280 framed.

To frame or not to frame?

The nature of a canvas art print means you don't necessarily need a frame to mount it on the wall.

It’s totally up to you if you want to frame a canvas print or not, but if you do want to opt for the frame, then I recommend including that in your order. Our team will produce a white box frame to perfectly fit your piece.

Where to put a canvas print


Canvas prints are very versatile. The 3D nature of the wraparound print means that a canvas print can work in many different places in your home or office. A canvas print will, of course, look great above a mantelpiece or a headboard as the focal point of the room, but it’ll also work on a staircase wall or in an entranceway.

When you choose the print, consider the colours in your space. By their very nature, my prints are bright and colourful, with a lot of texture and motion, so these pieces work really well against plain walls - light or dark! Got a print in mind or want advice for what works best in your space? Pop by the Cullercoats gallery on St George’s Road, we’re here Wed - Sun, 10 am to 5 pm.

How to clean a canvas print

You can clean your canvas print by dusting it regularly with a soft brush, like a makeup brush. For deeper cleaning, please consult a professional. 

How to hang a canvas print

All of our canvas prints come with a picture hanging cord on the back, ready for you to hang in your home interior.

Can I print my own canvas?

Attention to detail is key for canvas prints, as you often see images skewed or distorted on the canvas when they are printed without the right materials or expertise. 

Many printers offer canvas prints, but often the quality of ink isn’t quite up to the original artwork. This is because printing on canvas takes special high quality materials to produce. For those reasons, I don’t distribute digital versions of my artwork for printing at home. 

Browse our impressive selection of canvas art prints and order in person directly from the gallery. Currently, we are not taking orders on the website, so please give us a call on 0191 252 2686 to place your order and arrange collection from our art gallery in Cullercoats!
