Claire is a self-taught artist working from her studio in Stratford-upon-Avon, where she produces quirky colourful acrylic paintings of houses, animals and people.
She also creates 3D works of art using reclaimed objects. Old wooden trays and cigar boxes become frames for rows of painted driftwood houses, with nails for chimneys and needle felted trees.
Here’s just a few examples of the fabulous work created by the very talented Lucy Cooke.
Lucy is able to design and produce bespoke mosaic work just for you, so if you like the “Funky bird” in yellow but would prefer a blue bird or if you would like your house number in a different shape, size or colour to the example shown below – please do let us know. The cost of similar commissions will be very near to the prices as shown, or we can work to your budget - however the artwork will be tailored to your design.
Lucy studied Illustration and Animation at Manchester Metropolitan University, followed by an Illustration Master’s Degree at Brighton University. Lucy has worked as a graphic, product & textile designer, however in between juggling 3 young children, now paints full time from her studio in Cheshire. Lucy’s passion is creating fun, quirky pieces of artwork, that each tell their own story.
An Artist will paint an original painting, then run a few Artist's Proofs to see what they look like in print. Lucy runs 5 Artist's Proofs of each painting. From there, some (not all) go to Limited Edition Print, however there will only ever be a maximum of 75 prints of each piece of Lucy's work.
Ros studied at the University of Wolverhampton, finishing with a First Class Degree in Three Dimensional Design (Ceramics). Ros now combines teaching workshops with making ceramics, and she shows extensively worldwide.
Ros will upcylce a wide range of materials into her eclectic birds & fish. Using different methods to product the ceramic element, the animals will often be fused with vintage items - think an old tap, teacup, Coke bottle, beer keg - you name it - anything works!
Tilly's Cottages are made by Louise Whiteley, who runs 3 Blue Stars, and they are gorgeous little seaside cottages and beach huts, made from driftwood or old wood. You'll often find the owners washing drying on the line, little shell sail boats bobbing in the sea, or pesky seagulls sitting on top of the cottage roofs...
