James Maconochie art prints and posters

James Maconochie was born in London in 1965 and grew up in Bermuda. His first public exhibition was put on at Eton College with two fellow art students to represent the Art Department for a visit by HRH the Duke of Edinburgh in 1980. After leaving school he travelled to Australia and worked for various commercial galleries in Melbourne and Sydney, and was asked to exhibit paintings in both cities that were inspired by his visits to The Great Barrier Reef.

On returning to England six months later, he studied Renaissance and 20th Century Art in Oxford, where he wrote a thesis comparing the background land and seascape scenes of Old Master paintings with contemporary works. This was titled The Same Sky. In 1986, while based in London, he was awarded a grant by the London Arts Council and held his first one-man show at The Orangery, in Holland Park. This generated significant interest and the majority of the exhibited pieces were bought by a private collector in Geneva.

In the last ten years there have been numerous exhibitions in London and abroad, with work based mainly on his semi-abstract visions of Bermuda, the Caribbean, the West Indies and, closer to home, the Western Isles of Scotland. While he has maintained a loyalty to the colour blue, he claims that he has by no means reached the end of the infinite variations of its interpretations.

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.
