I was asked to paint a personalised version of my popular What’s on painting for a Cambridge couple, and to make it a Christmas scene. So I collected lots of information about what they were into, and included as much as I could on the posters. The bikes were theirs. I wanted to change the scene, whilst keeping the bikes and railings theme, so I chose one of my favourite Cambridge places – All Saints Garden. I created the snow with white ink and a toothbrush – always scary to spatter over a finished painting!
“Naomi is a very talented artist who created a completely personalised and unique piece of art, as a present for a family member. It was one of those gifts that was very hard to give away! The attention to detail was brilliant and often exceeded expectation. Her work is a credit to the beauty of Cambridge and the added charm is translated in her creations. I would have a house full of her paintings if I could.” Robert Gros, Cambridge
