Jennifer Harmes art prints and posters

Jennifer Harmes was born and brought up in New Zealand as part of a very artistic family. Her mother spent much time during her childhood working as a commercial artist and illustrator, and Jennifer Harmes herself has been drawing ever since she could hold a pencil.

She completed two years of a BA in Art at college in the United States as the recipient of an Art Scholarship and a Foreign Student Scholarship. She then completed a certificate in graphic design in New Zealand and worked for a number of years as a graphic designer, specialising particularly as a stylist for magazines in New Zealand. She began painting as a full time career in 2000.

Jennifer Harmes cites as an inspiration the work of Georgia O'Keeffe, Andrew Wyeth and Wolf Kahn. She is particularly well known for her beautiful paintings of flower heads. Jennifer Harmes is always looking out for flowers that catch her eye and she regular visits gardens and buys cut flowers from florists. She then photographs the particular image that has inspired her and eventually picks out something from each image that she wishes to draw up as a painting. She prepares her canvases with up to six layers of primer, sanding each coat to achieve the kind of surface on which she likes to paint. Then she uses Alkyd oils with liquid in transparent layers of paint to achieve the vibrancy and depth of colour to her work.

She is hampered as an artist by the fairly strong feelings she has for all her flower paintings, which means that she finds it very hard to part with any of them! Peonies, however, are her favourite flower and she has kept Yellow Peony to hang permanently in her home.

More about framing

framing info

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.
