WHAT IS ARTGLASS?Standard picture framing glass is called float glass. This glass is used by the majority of picture framers and is perfectly acceptable for use when framing most limited edition prints but it does cause reflection and impurities in the glass cause the framed image to appear duller than intended.
To overcome these compromises we offer all our limited editions with the option of been fitted with a speciality glass called ARTglass designed to reduce reflection and improve clarity.
Unlike 'non-reflective' glass which is etched to reduce reflection but has a cloudy appearance as a result, ARTglass is coated with a high-tech film, reducing reflection whilst adding clarity.
The example shown here is an actual scan of a print framed with ARTglass in the left half of the frame and standard glass in the right half. This image has not been altered or enhanced in any way and clearly shows how ARTglass improves the clarity and vibrancy of the print. From certain viewing angles it appears that the glass is invisible.

As a child Nicky spent her weekends and summers at her grandparents farm, and it was there that her love of animals began. Now, Nicky paints from her studio in the picturesque village of Hurst Green in the Ribble Valley, and can often be found out and about sketching with her companion, Max the dog, by her side.
Traditional subject matter such as hares, foxes and livestock are at the heart of her paintings, which she creates mainly in pastel. With a playful use of line and colour she produces delightful, contemporary artworks full of character and charm.
