Alex Cassels art prints and posters

First signs of an artistic calling appeared during family holidays on the North Norfolk coast in the 1970’s. This took off photographically after a summer holiday to the Costa Brava when I sold my first picture of the little fishing port of Port de la Selva to Catalan Villas.

In the mid 1980’s I went on to study Photography, Film & Television at Plymouth College of Art and Design which introduced me to the wonderful world of animation. This new direction had initially been inspired through work experience at the Walt Disney Studios in Sydney while on a round the world trip. The next 10 to 15 years were spent in various animation studios in Cardiff, Manchester and London working largely on children’s TV productions and half hour specials.

To help complement my animation work between productions, I was able to continue my photography work thanks to commissions for travel brochures & hotels in Turkey & Northern Cyprus. This led to image sales to Noble Caledonia and brochure commissions with Anatolian Sky Holidays.

My love for the natural world and wild places has led me to visit stunning and dramatic scenery in Australia, the United States, Canada and particularly New Zealand. These travels have fuelled my passion for landscape photography. The work of Ansel Adams and his beautiful black & white images of the American West and more recently Frans Lanting’s wildlife images have also been a great inspiration to me.

More about framing

In the Design Studio

We partner with the world's top museums and galleries to bring you exclusive prints of the highest quality. Our teams of designers ensure the colours are accurate, papers are well suited and the best frames are suggested.

Colour Perfecting in the Print Room

In the printing room, artworks are printed on state-of-the-art machines with a team of technicians checking colour and quality every step of the way.

Measuring Up

After being cut down to size, our team carefully finish any stray edges, check measurements and prepare the prints for mounting and framing.

Assembling Frames in the Framing Workshop

We have a team of master framers who work with high-quality, responsibly-sourced wood to create our vast range of framing combinations - each frame is bespoke and made to order for every print.

Hand-finishing in the Framing Workshop

Our selection of hand-finished frames are painted or stained by hand in a variety of colours, and finished with a layer of wax - the end result is a uniquely crafted, beautiful frame that is made to last.

The Last Stop

In this workshop everything comes together - the print, the frame and the glass - in a seamless and stream-lined process.

Mounting the Prints

The artwork is carefully mounted in preparation for framing.

Laying the Glass

Once mounted, the print is ready to be covered by glass or perspex - a delicate procedure but expertly done with not a fingerprint in sight.

The Final Product

After a final, thorough check, the framed print is ready to be carefully packaged up and shipped to the customer.

Transferring to Canvas

For those who order their art as canvas prints, the same amount of attention and care goes into the process. Here, the print is being transferred to a wooden frame.

Finishing the Canvas Edging

As with the framed prints, our canvases are all hand-finished in the workshop - a labour of love from start to finish.
