Laurie Maitland art prints and posters

Born in Portsmouth, England in 1969, artist Laurie Maitland spent her childhood years in the stunning scenery of the Cotswolds before moving to London. With her specialism in set design during her English and Drama studies at Kingston University, Maitland then went on to pursue a career as a teacher.

However, Maitland never stopped painting, creating little gems of masterpieces in her spare time. In 1996, she had her first professional showcase at Bournemouth in an outdoor exhibition, which was remarkably successful. Laurie Maitland subsequently sold her work through various galleries within the UK and, gripped by an entrepreneurial spirit, started owning and running three art galleries, a furniture design company and a fine art publishing enterprise. Due to her successful art career, however, Maitland stopped teaching and sold off all her businesses to concentrate on her first love of painting.

Maitland's paintings are characterised by abstract blurry squares in smoky shades of maroon, yellow and grey, overlaid with graphic splattered lines or a translucent layer of floral motifs. The compositions bring to mind the work of Mark Rothko but with a feminine slant. Her love of nature and keen interest in interior design has a great influence on her work with some of her most famous pieces hinting at the colours of changing seasons.

Distributed worldwide, Maitland's paintings are highly sought-after. The talented artist currently resides in Devon where she continues to work on her art and design, whilst working on her first novel.

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.
