Fine Art Prints By John Gittins

In the early 1980's I worked in various part time jobs trying to establish myself as a professional Artist. I exhibited and sold work in the UK and in the Netherlands. One of my oil paintings was purchased by the University of Sheffield for their collection. Over thirty years later I discovered it had been included in the Public Catalogue Foundation's database of artworks owned by public institutions throughout the UK.

Seeing my painting again gave me the idea to make my folio of work available for sale in the form of a series of limited edition prints. The J G Miniatures online shop, where I sell my miniature sculptures, will provide the shop-window for the prints as well. The works are landscapes and although not directly related to the world of the Toy Soldier Collector, it was my love of landscape that have inspired many of the models I have produced over the years.

Sold unframed, each work is limited to a print run of 500 and are individually signed and numbered by me. They are produced as Giclee prints on premium acid free papers using the highest quality non fading inks. I hope my customers appreciate my two-dimensional work as much as they have my three-dimensional work over the years.

Why Landscapes?

I love the natural environment and particularly the landscape of Britain. It has always been the landscape that has captured my imagination. Escaping the City and walking in Nature, I become grounded - the feel of the wind, the smell of the peat and heather, but most of all the sound of the silence and that particular "sense of place" one gets when contemplating the history and the marks of man upon the land. I always return spiritually refreshed, rejuvenated and inspired.
