Embroidering profanities …

My mother never ever swore … her idea of swearing was a very wonderful “Hells Bells!” She was a true lady through and through, and raised her three daughters to be the same!

Therefore, I feel I really must disassociate myself from the special Tshirt my husband commissioned me to make for him this afternoon, and if my beautiful mother is looking down on me then I have just one thing to say … “Mammy he MADE me do it!”

More Coffee Dregs Art …

I love my cafetière of fresh coffee each morning. I try to have just one cup each day and drink water or peppermint tea the rest of the day, but oh do I love that fresh morning coffee. When I get home from work Lee is usually in the kitchen and has tidied up from my morning smoothie, coffee, breakfast chaos. However, he is often tempted by my coffee dregs and yesterday I got home to find this handsome fella smiling up at me! Once a creative always a creative huh?

Marvellous Rotten …

We just sold another print on our little ‘Trashcan Emporium Handmade at Amazon’ shop. This time it was this awesome print from an original acrylic on

canvas of John Lyndon aka Johnny Rotten.

I am always in complete awe of how talented Lee is but truly this one is just stunning! What do you reckon?

Coffee Dregs Art…

When you are married to an artist I guess you shouldn’t really be surprised to find the dregs from the cafetière in the sink looking like this huh?

Love Always …

Special days are hard when you are newly bereaved. My birthday this week was so tough. How can you have a birthday without thinking of your mother? I did find some level of peace and tranquility walking the beautiful island of Skomer, but it was still a sad and emotional day. However, a ray of love eventually shone through with this beautiful birthday gift from Lee. Stunningly beautiful. His art captures moments I need to remember and help me to accept that life goes on and love goes on … always. ❤️

Hearty praise for punky art …

Lee is an old punk and his Brummy punk roots have been the source of inspiration for his art for many years.  We sell prints of his work through the studio and our social media sites, but also have a shop on 'Handmade at Amazon' which helps us reach people who have not yet connected with us.  We have recently sold  a print of his amazing John Lydon acrylic on canvas and received a lovely email message from the bloke who purchased saying "I just want to say thanks for a very speedy delivery and that I am well chuffed with the print.  It's an excellent painting of Mr Rotten".  He went on to ask whether Lee had created any other punk art and this reminded me to update our shop with some more of Lee's great punk pencil drawings. We just love a bit of feedback so sincere thanks to Andy  who took the time to message us and of course we would love to hear what you all think too ?

Inky shoes …

So Lee came home from the studio with some tattoo ink accidentally dropped on his white plimsolls. He had only had them a short while and I commented on how he was always splashing ink on his clothes. The next day Lee sent me a photo of the same shoes … not with just a couple of splashes of ink on them but lots and lots and lots! 

Certainly different … what do you think?
