Born in 1972, James Elliot was raised in Indiana. Elliot has always been fascinated with creating art; he began drawing and painting at the young age of four. Growing up, he developed an intense appreciation for architecture and found himself immersed in the shapes of the world around him. Simple sketches of houses and buildings would later evolve and take the form of sophisticated structures and cityscapes.
Elliot finds his inspiration in the purest form of everyday life. Based on a strong belief in the true amazement of his time in history, the artist makes a conscious effort to consider and realise its value every day. His studies of the Renaissance era also had a significant effect on the artistic drive and innovation that originally sparked his interest in painting. He especially appreciates the work of Caravaggio and the contemporary Clemente. He recognises the underlying passion of these artists first and then the beauty of the painting itself.
Stories of colour and shape consume Elliot´s canvases. Complex layers of texture and linework are cleverly laid into place and ultimately result in a masterfully minimal piece of artwork. Whether abstract or representational, James´s pieces are rich with depth and overflowing with intensity. The artist´s concentration and passion for painting are evident in each spontaneously inspired design. His work is on the edge of the art world with inventive looks that are right at home in the arenas of the most up to date fashions and contemporaneous settings.
James Elliot considers his own work to be subjective and expressive. He believes that each painting tells a story; each piece is an opportunity to relate to the viewer on a fundamentally human level. In fact, Elliot has aspirations of stepping into the realm of teaching for the purpose of helping others to achieve their goals and make the necessary connections to the artistic expressions of their own.

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.
