Chart Art

Quality nautical charts on canvas for home or business

About Us

Chart Art is the brilliant concept of internationally known yachting photographer Rick Tomlinson and his wife Annika, the licensee, with the rights to reproduce derived nautical chart images on high quality canvas or paper. 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 in Hamble, where the sea and coast is never far away, it plays a big part in their lives for relaxation, inspiration and work...

ChartArt is a product of Living by the Seaside and is produced under license granted by the UK Hydrographic Office at the Admiralty.

About your canvas:

Your Chart Art will be printed onto high quality 50% linen + 50% cotton canvas and stretched over the finest genuine wooden artists stretcher bars complete with stretching wedges ready for you to hang when it arrives at your address.

The printing process uses technologically advanced 12 colour UV ink printed onto the finest 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 12" (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. The larger sizes have cross bars for more support. Each Chart Art canvas print, or paper print, is made individually to order by hand. The canvas print is wrapped in lots of bubble wrap and placed in a sturdy box for shipping. We export to Europe and the World.
