Chart Art

Quality nautical charts on canvas for home or business

About Us

Chart Art is the brilliant new concept of internationally known yachting photographer Rick Tomlinson and his wife Annika, the licensee, with the rights to reproduce derived nautical chart images on canvas. The Chart Art idea has evolved from the successful range of tableware featuring chart designs merging with Rick's fantastic photographs that are printed on to canvas.

Annika started Living by the Seaside in 2007, having obtained the license rights to reproduce UK Navigation Charts on to tableware, sourcing eco friendly manufacturers in Sweden and importing mugs, napkins and trays to the UK.

Rick and Annika live and work on the Isle of Wight, where the sea and coast is never far away it plays a big part in their lives – for relaxation, inspiration and work...

About your canvas:

Your Chart Art will be printed onto high quality 100% cotton canvas and stretched over the finest genuine artists stretcher bars complete with stretching wedges ready for you to hang.

The printing process uses technologically advanced 12 colour UV ink printed onto the finest 100% Cotton artists canvas, which is sourced from some of the biggest international art suppliers. Museum Quality Artists Stretcher Bars are made of the finest quality European kiln dried knotless pine, which has the advantage of being extremely hard wearing and not susceptible to warping that cheaper woods are prone to. Each bar features a rounded back edge which is designed to ensure that the canvas is always kept a full 1⁄2" (13mm) above the stretcher bar to ensure that there can be no ghost impressions on the canvas. These stretcher bars also incorporate 'wedges' which are placed in each corner and allow the canvas to be stretched extremely tightly over the frame. It also allows the canvas to be restretched over time, which can be of particular importance for the larger sizes we offer.

Hanging kits are supplied with all Chart Art canvas so putting them up on the wall is easy. The Canvas hanger incorporates a cut-out which allows the canvas to be hung on a standard two pin picture hook, which is also included. Using the included kit ensures that the canvas is “pulled" flush to the wall on a secure fixing.
