A closer look at Sketch

The Sketch collection is a series of prints by the artist Betty Sims-Hilditch. Created in ink with a fluid style, each captures a different figure. The small ‘Seated’ pieces are drawn more simply than the others, with less movement than the ‘Dancer’ prints. Choose them for a classical look and a sense of tradition – something we’ve played up on with their bronze frames – that’s not in any way formal.

Meet the artist

Betty Sims-Hilditch is a London-based artist who creates line drawings and black-and-white photographs. She uses a mix of ink, charcoal, watercolour and pencil to give depth and character to her illustrations, while her landscape photographs are all about soulful use of light.

The frame and mount

Even though each print is actually only postcard size, we’ve given them more gravitas with wide, white mounts. It lets each picture ‘breath’, so even in a gallery wall they stand out. The bronze finish on the cedarwood frame (chosen for its light weight and fine grain) adds to the classical element, but its slim profile wouldn’t be out of place in a contemporary home either.

Where we see it

For an appropriately traditional look, arrange all four of the smaller Seated prints in a grid or in the alcoves on either side of a fireplace. You could also combine them with sculptural pieces like Endellion and Ashford that’ll continue the classical feel.

Just so you know

On the back of the frame is a wire for hanging (be sure to select the correct fixing for your wall), and we’ve included Velcro dots that you attach to the frame and the wall to help the print stay neatly straight.

There may be some variation in the colour of the mounts, so if you plan to buy a few from the same collection, we recommend buying all at the same time.

When it comes to smaller items, we don't hang around.
