made in britain
A watercolour illustrated wildlife art print of the different types of whales found in British waters. Who knew there were so many!
This Whales of Britain print is the first in her British Wildlife range. These prints are born from Alexia’s love for our beautiful nature in the UK and her passion for conservation. You can have a beautiful piece of art for your wall at the same time as learning more about the wildlife around you that you may have not already known. Perfect for all ages and for inquisitive children too.
Painted in her countryside studio looking out over the National Forest, Alexia takes inspiration from her surroundings as well as a wealth of nature books collected throughout her life (she’s a bit addicted to these!). Along with her studio buddy, Benjamin bunny, it can take up to a few weeks to produce one of these wildlife prints.
These paintings truly are a labour of love. With a design background in textile design, Alexia composes each of these prints (for hours, until she’s 100% happy!) so that each element fits together as a pattern within a print. They are then painstakingly painted using watercolours, inks and pencils.
Available in two different sizes.
There are currently twelve different wildlife prints available from Alexia Claire.
This design is also available in Alexia’s shop as:
- a greetings card
- wrapping paper
- mini card kit
- also features in her 2020 British Wildlife wall calendar.
Professionally printed onto thick luxury card (350gsm), with a matte finish. This luxury printed print represents her original watercolour’s vibrancy and texture perfectly.
Your print will arrive flat (not rolled) to avoid creasing to the luxury matte finish. Along with a thick greyboard to keep it flat.
