Artist Spotlight: Harriet Hoult

Harriet Hoult has become a regular visitor to the Fine Art Solutions studios over the last couple of years. An abstract artist, based in London, the style of her work is fascinating to see and work with.

The thick paint marks, string and other coarse fabrics create an incredibly tactile result. When balanced with her use of bold colours, Harriet manages to...

Digital Restoration

One of the most regular things we deal with at Fine Art Solutions is people bringing us photographs of family and loved ones. These are quite often from before the age of digital photography and social media. This gives these photographs huge significance and immeasurable emotional value as there are no readily available backups or replacements. Given how old some of these can be and the variety of conditions in which they have been kept, many may have deteriorated, faded or been damaged. While many people do come to us with undamaged...

Reproduction of Heirloom Artworks

Recently at Fine Art Solutions, we have seen a number of clients come to us with artworks and documents that have been passed down from generation to generation and hold huge sentimental value for the entire family that they belong to. Because of this, more than one family member may wish to own the heirloom in question or it may be that the heirloom is too precious and fragile to be kept on display where it could be accidentally damaged. We are able to help by creating reproductions to such a precision that they are almost indistinguishable...
