You may have seen my other post about the fabulous Britannia look, but I’m back with another! This time I’m focusing on a new artist to the site, Bridget Davies. Davies’ work is a very fashionable take on the Cool Britannia trend and not only will you want the prints when you see them, you’ll wish you could have some of the clothes she paints too!
She is a Sussex-based artist with a background in fashion and textiles. This passion really shines through in her work, and some of her figural pieces show her influence from fashion illustrations. Of her own work, Davies says:
Drawing, in my opinion, is one of the most important things one can do as it is this that will develop one’s personal style and it teaches close observation which will eventually make perspective, lines, plains, composition start to come naturally… I do use my imagination in my art, but I think drawing for life is a more emotional experience.
I’m very excited to see her work because it’s such a fresh take on all of the British-themed art I’ve seen lately (and I’ve seen a lot). Don’t be misled, though. Davies has a breadth of work outside of this theme and it’s all worthy of your attention (and adoration).

Gives the frame its character and provides the perfect setting for an artwork to be fully enjoyed.
Protects the artwork from dust and wilting so that it can be admired for many years.
Adds depth to an image and works with the moulding to enhance and protect the artwork.
Bonds to the artwork ensuring it is perfectly smooth and holds the whole frame together.
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.
