paintedforest's Shop Announcement

♥ closing for a while ♥

From Monday 27th June 2011 I'll be temporarily shutting Painted Forest to allow me to concentrate on other illustration work. I'm not exactly sure when, but I hope to reopen at some point in the future. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Handmade watercolour art, linocut prints and unique gifts inspired by old fashioned fairytales, vintage children's illustrations and places real and imaginary.

All prints are from original illustrations - some have been published in children's books and magazines, others are personal work.

If you purchase a giclee, your artwork will be winging its way to the print house, then onwards to you within 5-7 days of receiving payment (shipping will take slightly longer if you are outside the UK). All other prints are normally sent out within 2-3 working days of placing your order. If you need it superfast - let me know and I'll do my best!


♥ Gallery quality giclee prints from a specialist fine art print house (not home printed)
♥ William Turner, 310gsm paper - exceptional for watercolours and drawings
♥ Beautiful, natural white, textured surface, with 100% rag content
♥ With a mean pH value of 7, each print has excellent archival qualities

My giclee prints are printed to order only, signed and numbered (limited editions) or signed on the back (open editions) - turnaround normally between 5-7 days (within the UK), shipping will take slightly longer for international orders.

Limited edition means just that - once the print run # has been reached there will be no more, ever! Limited edition prints are only available as giclees.


Printed on Epson heavyweight 167gsm matte paper and signed on the back. These small hand-cut prints measure approx 8" x 12" (UK A4), with a white border for framing. All small prints are also available as open edition high quality giclee prints - just ask!


If you would like your print custom mounted, please add this as a separate item when you check out. Mounts are cut from ivory heavyweight professional mounting board.

Thanks so much for visiting my shop! Flat rate shipping no matter how many prints or originals you buy.
