Gift sets!

Posted on Posted in blog, news

Thanks to a suggestion by my brilliant friend Hannah, I have launched a collection of gift sets of  different item combinations I sell based on my paintings. Some are based on a particular favourite painting, and some are on a them, like ‘a Cambridge Christmas’. The idea is that you can either buy a little set for […]

Covid 19 update

Posted on Posted in news, news-homepage

Just a quick post to let you know that during this time, I am still working – painting both for commissions and non-commissioned work. I’m also sending out online orders of prints, coasters and cards. If you’d like to purchase items from me, but prefer to collect from me in CB1 rather than pay for postage, […]

1970 wedding

Posted on Posted in commission

This was to be a gift to the happy couple from their sons to celebrate an important anniversary. I wanted to make more of the setting, but we were unsure of the church – there were a few options. So, with the help of my clients’ carefully subtle questioning of their parents, and my internet […]

Love cargo

Posted on Posted in commission

Here, I was asked to create a portrait of a family’s bicycles, along the line of my Love bikes painting. The centrepiece was to be the family’s much loved cargo bike, complete with comfort blankets. “I wanted to once again thank you for the lovely painting. My children, husband and I really love it and […]

Lola

Posted on Posted in commission

A few years ago, I painted Elisa and Antonio’s lovely dog Barney. This time they came to me with the sad news that their beloved cat Lola had passed away, and they wanted me to capture her beauty in a painting. Elisa gave me photos of Lola, and a photo of her favourite window ledge […]

My new studio

Posted on Posted in news, news-homepage

This is the lovely studio that we’ve created over the last year. All my favourite art, and space for my supplies. I’ve been yearning for so long to have a wet and dry table so that I can always have my painting out! Of course, there’s a fluffy day bed for Lumi. Can you tell […]

Cambridge Alumni

Posted on Posted in commission, news, news-homepage

I was asked to create the image for this year’s seasonal greeting to all University of Cambridge alumni. It was another heart-in-mouth white ink and a toothbrush snow moment once the painting was finished. I enjoyed thinking, whilst I was painting it, of famous alumni that would receive this in their inboxes, including my illustration […]
