Cambridge Boathouses

Posted on Posted in news, news-homepage, Uncategorised

I’ve long admired the Cambridge photography of Sara Rawlinson. You may have seen her work on the Cambridge libraries, or her photographs of King’s College chapel. I like her attention to detail and her framing. It turned out she feels very similarly about my work. Rather than just having a mutual love in, we decided […]

Some of you may have seen my short videos on social media introducing my new range of gifts. (I’m @naomidaviesart on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook) I was encouraged to add different items to my collection by the King’s College Visitor Centre, as they are now stocking lots of my homewares. It was good to have this nudge, and I’ve […]

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 […]
