Cambridge Boathouses

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 […]

New items added to my gift range

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 […]

Christmas cards 2020

Three new winter greetings cards this year. And one of those is a turkey – pretty appropriate for the year we’ve had!

Gift sets!

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

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, […]

New cards despite it all!

SO excited to get a delivery of new cards this week! Lots of lovely new designs for sending greetings to friends and family at this surreal time. We’ve had some cards through the door, and gifts left on the doorstop in the last weeks, and it really lifts your mood. I do hope this habit […]

New gifts coming soon!

I’m currently checking proofs and looking at samples for a new range of gifts for this summer. There will be new tea towels, coasters, tote bags, and some entirely new products too! Watch this space… UPDATE: Due to the current situation, production of this new merchandise is temporarily on hold. Coming as soon as possible! […]

My new studio

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

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 […]
