What are limited edition giclée prints?

22/04/2020

Giclée (from the french ‘gicler’: to squirt) is the process of making fine art prints from a digital source using large format ink-jet printing presses. These high-quality prints are created with fade-resistant pigment-based inks and printed onto 200gsm matt art paper. Each design is printed in a limited quantity and signed and numbered by the artist. As the prints are created digitally we are able to offer most designs in a choice of sizes, however, each print will still be uniquely numbered.

Where else can I purchase Retroprints?

22/04/2020

If you prefer not to purchase online, fear not, a large selection of prints are also available to buy from Galleries in Chichester and Southsea.
In Chichester you can visit The Oxmarket Gallery (off East Street) where you'll find a large selection of my designs in the Print Room. Art For All in Eastgate Square and The Novium Museum in Tower Street also stock many designs.
My designs of Portsmouth and the Solent can be purchased from White Dog Gallery in Southsea and Lee-on-the-Solent.

About the designer

22/04/2020

I originally studied art at Worthing Art College and typography at Brighton University and have worked as a graphic designer in publishing for the past 25 years.
I've had a long-standing fascination for vintage travel posters, and I embarked on my first series of Retroprints in summer 2010 for an exhibition at the Oxmarket Gallery in Chichester called 'South of the Downs', which featured a few views of Chichester and Portsmouth. Over the past 10 years the range has expanded to cover local subjects in West Sussex and Hampshire, but I've also created views of Newcastle, Bath and London, and have also ventured as far afield as Germany, the US and Spain. The White Horse in West Pallant, Chichester (illustrated left) was my first print of Chichester.
