Affordable Art. Framed Art. Art Prints.

Monday, February 19th, 2018

Ever wished you could buy that original piece of art but it was just too expensive and out of reach?  I know I have.

Have you ever considered prints of your favourite originals?

Especially now, most of us are adjusting to life on tighter budgets. Even if you can’t afford an original piece of art, purchasing prints can be more affordable and if the original artwork is sold, there may be prints available. It not only brings art into your home but, it also supports the artist community too.Clear


ClearI have recently been setting up my online print shop, where you can now purchase prints of my original artworks.

Please see my Gallery page or, click the headings below. There you can browse my selection of framed prints, canvas prints, art prints, acrylic block prints and metal prints.


The source, for all my art prints, are created in my studio by hand, in (Australia) using my original artworks and photographs. Hand drawing, painting, photography and making collage, is all part of the creative process. Then, the prints are ethically produced by my digital printing partners in Melbourne, Australia, USA and London,England. My prints come in many sizes and prices, to suit your budget. All prints are created from the best, fine artist grade, papers, canvas and materials. Each print is clear and vibrant using specialists inks that will last. Your purchase is wrapped carefully then, packaged in sturdy custom- made boxes, so they make it safely to your door. Please see … Worldwide Delivery  plus 100% Returns and Exchanges

I am still in the process of creating my online print shop and will gradually add more prints over time. Enjoy your browse!

Handmade Books. Recycling.

Jenny Davis_ Handmade Book

I love to recycle packaging, junk mail and advertising materials into books


Jenny Davis_ Handmade Book

I like the freedom of designing my books as I make them, discovering ideas along the the way

Its amazing how much packaging can be saved over time





For this book I used cereal packaging with a peephole and pasta boxes with acetate windows for the interior pages




and sealed the pages with white Gesso




only on one side because I liked the dark look of the cardboard ( later I painted them with Parisian essence to age )




On the cover I used double sided tape to stick down the tabs




to make it more sturdy




The little window will have something inside




Taking a load of baguette bags I bought back from France




I scrunched them up into balls and wrinkled them




opened them up and stuck them to the cover packaging with pva glue




This gave the cover an oldish feel with a lovely rough texture.French text shows through the window

I covered the inside with some French text from a 1900’s magazine, stamping and my hand drawn doodle drawings.

I didn’t like the brightness of the gessoed pages so aged them with washes of Parisian essence






When dry I cut off some of side flaps from the inside pages saving them for tags and pockets later




I didn’t have an awl to make the holes for binding the book, instead I used a hammer and nail. It worked fine




I punched 3 rows of holes weaving in and out with cotton mop thread




leaving a tail inside I then plaited the threads and added a piece cardboard for a bead thing




The extra holes seen were a mistake and can be covered up with more baguette paper and glue later

Side flaps on some of the pages hold piles of water colour papers for collage and drawing




They are tied with cotton mop thread




The loose water colour papers are white and hand dyed with Parisian essence




See through windows add more interest

Pockets and string hold found papers and tags. The book is still not finished and I will probably add more tags and pockets

Toggles were sewn on the front with a string to close


Jenny Davis_ Handmade Book

This book has a Japanese feel to it and measures 24 x19cm. 5 pockets hold 40 pieces of water colour paper with another 12 pages. Some have windows.

I try to keep on top of my collecting by making something with the packaging every few weeks.

What do you make from your junk?

Textural Surface Paintings. Barcelona Spain.

Monday, October 29th, 2012

Textural Surface Paintings I did in Spain.
In 2005 I was artist in residence at the Can Serrat International Art Center in Barcelona, Spain. During this time I completed several series of works; which developed as a result of solitary expeditions into the surrounding areas.
















Textural oil paintings on linen, linked to ancient Catalan architecture.

















My little paintings are rubbings from actual surfaces around the Barcelona, Spain.















Ancient markings weathered , subtle & chalky















I added colour to my work with pure powder pigments and oils, hand mixed in my studio.

“Silent Momento – Paris Venice & Spain”

Thursday, March 8th, 2012

A new series of paintings from the studio…

“Silent Momento – Paris Venice & Spain”  Links to found surfaces from the streets of Paris, Venice and Spain. Weathered, worn surfaces, old peeling papers with glimpses of the past, slashed with scrapings of whitewash.

Passages in time, forgotten marks and scribble usually left, unseen & silent.

All paintings in this series and my other work are available at my  Outlook8studio Etsy Store
