Mini Prints of Iconic Northumberland


My Northumberland Landscape Mini Print Collection is inspired by Hadrian’s Wall, the untamed Northumberland coastline and the great castles that sit on the Whin Sill – the great geological feature that stretches across the North of England and out to the Farne Islands.

The Romans used this geological feature as a natural barrier on which to build Hadrian’s Wall to mark the furthest reach of the Roman Empire. In subsequent centuries, rulers of Northumbria and later of England, built their castles along the Whin Sill to protect them from invaders.

Mini Prints are the ideal, easy-to-post gift for the small house or flat. The high quality, giclee reproduction of my most popular prints are float-mounted by hand for maximum impact. Mini prints can be wall-mounted or used to decorate a shelf or other surface. The high quality, white acrylic box frame includes a foldable standing arm. Image size: 7cm x 7cm; frame size: 12cm x 12cm x 2cm | Price: £21 (including P&P)


My new floral mini print collection is inspired by  the flowers in the landscape, summer hay meadows and gardens of Northumberland.  The gardens that inspire me range from the formal and walled gardens at National Trust Wallington Hall and Cragside, English Heritage Belsay Hall but also the county’s less well known gardens such Herterton House Garden (my favourite garden) and the more modest gardens of my neighbours and my own Northumberland home.
