Since publishing Iris’s story we have been sending her prints to new homes all over the world. We are very lucky to have such a dedicated and talented team working with us on this project to deliver the highest quality of Giclee prints to Iris’s customers. They are produced at On The Edge Framing & Art only one mile down the road from where they were painted.
Using extremely ‘high end’ scan-back camera technology and daylight balanced lighting, we are able to create an incredibly accurate and detailed digital image from Iris’s Original Paintings. Our colour management ensures consistency and guarantees the highest standards and quality of image.
‘we love our prints! amazing quality and I can’t wait for them to come back from the framers, they will be calming for our daughter to look at every day.’ ~ Buyer from Portugal
‘Here in Malaysia at the Sunway Medical Centre Iris’s prints inspire and soothe our patients.’
The word Giclée (“g-clay”), is derived from the French verb gicler meaning “to squirt or spray”, Giclée, is used to describe a fine art digital printing process combining pigment based inks with high quality archival quality paper (Hahnemühle German Etching, 310 gsm) to achieve Giclée prints of superior archival quality, light fastness and stability.
‘I have struggled with great loss in my life, I have found Iris’s Paintings to be calming and enlightening giving me peace as I look into the images that she has created.’ ~ Buyer from South America
‘There is a sense of harmony, joy and my spirits lifted as I look at her paintings, thankyou for this special gift. x’ ~ Buyer from the U.S
As you can see everyone has their own ideas, colour schemes and designs of how they would like their Iris Grace print to be framed. We go for a white mount and white wooden frame like the ones pictured below but I have been inspired by how her buyers have been choosing to frame theirs.

The story begins with a Peacock from London called Pepe, he needed a home and we jumped at the chance to help him. I adored the idea of the colourful displays that would entice any child to explore. The magic fairy tale bird that would inspire us all came unexpectedly with a friend called Colin. Colin is a small but mighty rooster and he was along for the ride too. We settled them into the barn with Murph and Smurf our Pigmy goats, Blue, Casper and Jack, the ponies, then at last after the long journey we went to bed. At dawn, all was quiet as I approached the barn. It was oddly silent, no calls for food. Each animal was still, looking sadly down at the ground where Pepe’s body lay cold. Colin looked at me, I felt his loss and we decided to bring him inside as he clearly needed comfort. I am unsure how animals feel death, they certainly show almost human emotions but at the very least giving him comfort would help us along through the sadness of that morning. We do not know why Pepe died, maybe it was the move, shock, we were uncertain of his age but what we do know is he had a very good friend who I would like to get to know better.
Colin settled in the house making us laugh at how confident he is. He enjoys sitting on laps, gentle strokes and settling up high on mantle pieces observing his new household. Thula and Colin have an understanding after one quick flurry and a peck. To those who are new to a house rooster, here are some vital pieces of knowledge from me to you – blackout blinds! brilliant blackout blinds will fool your rooster into having a lie in. They also like to sleep high so maybe clear the mantle pieces and a book shelf just in case. Finally a fire and a warm atmosphere will soothe your rooster in the evening.
So with a journey that began with a Peacock has turned into an unexpected and at times hilarious adventure with a Rooster.
To our delight Colin proved himself to be incredible with Iris and other children so he is now part of our therapy sessions at The Little Explorers Activity Club
