Ellen Hudson was born in 1962 and brought up in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland with a large family of five other brothers and sisters, with all of whom she remains very close.
All six of the Hudson children were sent away to boarding school, which is where Ellen Hudson in particular acquired her first love of art. Inspired by a new and youthful art teacher, she learned originally to analyse and follow contemporary trends and fashions through reading style magazines, visiting shops and boutiques and travelling extensively as a teenager around Europe.
Ellen Hudson completed a degree in History of Art at a Scottish university and worked for a time in one of Edinburgh's most prestigious galleries. However, she soon learnt that she preferred to create her own art rather than to sell other peoples and has now carved out a highly successful career as a painter and designer of fabrics, textiles and two-dimensional artwork.
Ellen Hudson still lives in Scotland, where she divides her time between her own family's farmhouse and the galleries and designers for whom she still undertakes freelance fashion work.
Gives the frame its character and provides the perfect setting for an artwork to be fully enjoyed.
Protects the artwork from dust and wilting so that it can be admired for many years.
Adds depth to an image and works with the moulding to enhance and protect the artwork.
Bonds to the artwork ensuring it is perfectly smooth and holds the whole frame together.
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.
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.
After being cut down to size, our team carefully finish any stray edges, check measurements and prepare the prints for mounting and framing.
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.
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.
In this workshop everything comes together - the print, the frame and the glass - in a seamless and stream-lined process.
The artwork is carefully mounted in preparation for framing.
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.
After a final, thorough check, the framed print is ready to be carefully packaged up and shipped to the customer.
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.
As with the framed prints, our canvases are all hand-finished in the workshop - a labour of love from start to finish.
