So … this is what happens when you pop off to the shops and leave your artist husband alone with the key to your Thread Shed …

Lucky Peacock, Lucky Me

I love peacocks and for a while has been pondering on having a peacock tattoo. Of course the moment I mention it to The Husband he has designs on my body (quite literally). This stunning bird was the result of a few sittings at the studio and I truly love it. The peacock is a symbol of luck, patience and kindness and fits so well with me right now. I feel so lucky to have a husband that adores me and has the amazing talent to create beautiful art that I will wear for the rest of my life ❤️

Puppy Love …

Lee recently completed this stunning pencil drawing of the gorgeous Oscar. The drawing was commissioned as a very special birthday present for Oscar’s lucky lady owner by her wise husband. She absolutely loves the drawing and he has banked a years worth of ‘brownie points’ for the thoughtful gift. He sent Lee a selection of photos and if you look carefully and zoom in on Oscar’s left eye you will see the outline of the photographer reflected there and reproduced in fine detail by Lee and his clever pencil.

If you are thinking of a pencil drawing commission for someone special this Xmas then get in touch but do remember that Lee will need plenty of notice as these are many hours of patient work!

Arty farty chocoholic …

So… Lee and I cwtched up in the warm last night to watch a great movie “Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool” – a heartwarming and tear jerking biopic of 1950’s film star Gloria Grahame. I was sipping on a cocktail of whisky, honey and lemon (damn Sister jetting off to the sun and leaving her germs behind) and Lee was munching on Terry’s Chocolate Orange. There was all this rustling of the foil paper and at the end of the movie this is what I found …

Barber John’s Trim …

Some friends of Lee’s, Jo and Kev, have opened a super new barber shop in Johnston, near Haverfordwest, with some parking around the back of the shop. This pair have impeccable taste and the barber shop is very retro and mighty cool. Of course they needed some wonderful artwork for the shop too and we were really happy to provide a range of Lee’s amazing art for the walls. Every limited edition canvas print on display is also for sale (£40 large canvas and £30 small canvas) so you can shop and get trim at the same time.

Jo has years of experience in creating fabulous hair and beards for her customers and Lee has years of experience in creating fabulous art… so it really is a match made in heaven. While Lee was there Jo trimmed the old punk into something into a lot less hairy and a lot more groomed – perfectly perfect!

We definitely highly recommend a visit to Barber John’s for a great haircut and great art!

Birthday Arty …

As you know The Husband loves to gift me his unique and wonderful arty creations for our special days. For my most recent birthday present he created this beautiful colourful art. It was inspired by a selfie I took of us on our wedding anniversary where Lee is catching the Rhossili sunset in a glass of Prosecco. I simply love the boldness of the colours and also that our beautiful anniversary moment is captured in Lee’s very own unique way. Honestly you can stuff the birthday party … I am utterly happy with my birthday arty!
