Hazel Soan art prints and posters

Hazel Soan was born in England in 1954 and trained at the Camberwell School of Art and at Leicester College of Art, graduating in 1976. Since that time she has built up for herself an awe-inspiring list of one-man and mixed shows from London to Birmingham, Surrey to Nottingham, Venezuela to Zimbabwe and Tokyo. Hazel Soan enjoys the freedom that her painting gives her. Having learnt to fly a single-engine aircraft, she is able to visit many countries around the world sketching avidly as she goes. She also learnt to sail and bought a half share in a yacht as well as a share in a Landrover in which she can set off on safari to explore the desert coasts of Africa.


Her work is a mixture of the exotic and the ordinary. Elephants at a waterhole or the Landrover in the Okavango swamps hang alongside water-colours of the remnants of tea, or coffee, or a croissant. Her work has a vibrancy which relies on a sparklingly clean use of water-colour and a flawless technique. Sue Reynold of the Observer has said of her: "For me the essential Hazel Soan is her talent, like the miller's daughter turning flax into gold, for making the apparently simple into the truly special." Hazel says: "If I could wish for anything from and for my paintings, it is that the pleasure and excitement I receive from seeing my subjects would be similarly experienced by those who later view my paintings."


Her work is held in private and public collections in England, Australia, the USA, Venezuela, Africa, Japan, France and Spain. She has also received national media coverage on many television shows and has presented her own series of programmes on the way in which to paint in water-colour for Anglia TV, which was shown across the UK’s ITV network.

More about framing

Exploded-product

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.
