AFFORDABLE ART - WHY BUY A FINE ART PRINT?
Many of the original paintings I make are large scale and can take several months to complete. These are showcase pieces that are made for exhibition or for bespoke commissions, but I am also passionate about making my Art accessible to those who do not have the space or budget for an original piece. It was after my Solo show at The Fullerton Hotel in Singapore that I had so many requests to make my large paintings available as prints that I decided to launch them!
WHY BUY A FINE ART PRINT
Choosing to make my prints only of the highest quality is important to me, not only do I use the highest quality German Hahnemuhle cotton paper which is 310 gsm but I have a master printer who makes sure that the Giclee print's colours are matched to the painting and the colours are as intense and bright as they are on the canvas.
WHAT IS A GICLEE PRINT?
A Giclee Print (pronounced Gee'clay) comes from the french word gicleur that means 'nozzle' and the verb gicler means to spray or to squirt (wikipeida), and it has come to reference the pigments style printing giving the same tone and hues of the original painting. You can see from my photography that I take great care in ensuring that the painting and the print are as near an exact match as possible. A Giclee Printer uses special inks that do not fade with age or time in the sunlight.
WHY ARE CLARE HAXBY LIMITED EDITION PRINTS SO SPECIAL?

A few weeks have passed but just wanted to say thank you for the fabulous print of Raffles Hotel. My husband loved it and it has now taken pride of place in our living room. Guests have also commented on the picture, and especially love the colours and attention to detail.
