Painted art stones & Tea light holders

We are now selling art work, painted stones, tea light holders and cat portraits hand painted by myself. My art incorporates many of my own interests such as the flora and fauna around our boat on the Thames.

I am particularly partial to the dark and bright colours of Eastern European folk art such as Russian lacquer work and the crewel work seen on Indian clothing and paper mâché items. This inspires the colour choices and patterns that I use in my dot artwork and painted boxes**. Prices for our painted art stones and tea light holders are from £20. You can see some examples of my work in our art gallery here.

Pet portraits

Combining my love of cats and art, I offer pet portraits of cats using acrylic on art stones from a photo provided by you. The stones are 11cm in diameter, and are a lovely alternative to wall art if you are looking for something smaller as a gift or keepsake. Prices start at £85
