Hi there, and welcome to my online studio shop where you'll find wall art and homeware for home and office - all based on my original photography and designs.
I still have my web design, marketing and comms business as part of my "toolbox" but in Lockdown times I pursued my hobby of photography and got ridiculously carried away combining it with my love of graphic design and art. I think I had something of a "50s" midlife crisis and realised that this is what I LOVE doing. So here we are! I hope you'll enjoy following my work as it develops, and if you have any questions please just give me a shout!
These are the tools of my trade! I love to take photographs and I then have the best time creating photographic art to sell or for bespoke commissions. My faithful camera and laptop are my besties!
Every piece of art I create takes many hours of design after planning and taking photos. It's a joy to develop every project.
I guess the other tool is my imagination - combining my love of photography with that and a wide range of (mainly self-taught) creative techniques results in the work you see here - some slightly more sensible than others.....
I stock a range of items for my market stalls and shows in West Cumbria, and order in other items which are "made to order". By partnering with great UK suppliers turnaround times are good and production quality is constantly checked.
I create bespoke commissions for homes and offices, and feel so lucky that my creations are finding their way on to happy clients' walls, desks, sofas and more (did you know I create my work onto cushions, handbags and various other surfaces?) If you would like to know more about any of them or you can't find what you are looking for just drop me a line via the contact page.
When not working on editing images and managing the business, I spend time in my outside office. This is the beautiful stretch of beach in St Bees where I walk with our bionic Springer Harris (he now has metal elbows!). Please come and say hi if you are down there and see this slightly dotty lady accompanied by camera and dog.
Whether you like something in the store, you would like a pet portrait or commission creating, get in touch for a chat.
Cheers, Kate x
