Progression of the Path to Fresh East …

Watching a work in progress is quite amazing. Lee has the most infinite patience in his approach to his art and a painting can take many many hours as it slowly transforms from the mapped out sketch to the glorious detailed finished masterpiece. This is beautifully demonstrated with this set of four photos of his recently finished “Path to Fresh East” … what do you think?

If this inspires you and you adore Freshwater East don’t forget we are selling a limited edition of mounted prints 20″ x 16″ at £40. Just drop us a message We are happy to post out worldwide too as long as postage is covered!

Path to Fresh East…

It’s rare The Husband paints a landscape … but I sooooooooo wanted to have a canvas of our beautiful bay at Freshwater East. One day, as we were walking onto the beach, he took a quite stunning photo and happily decided to paint it. The finished piece is absolutely wondrous and huge … really huge. We needed a very large space to hang it on and some good friends of ours have just bought themselves a fabulous inn in nearby Lamphey. The place has so much character, with lovely bed rooms for overnight stays, an amazing chef (who I just know is going to cook up a storm) and a lovely spacious environment for customers to relax and enjoy. They were truly delighted to hang the breathtaking canvas above the period fireplace in their quirky bar area. We think it looks fabulous there and we would like to wish Anna, Greg, Victoria and Andy, as well as their chef Antoni, every success as they open the doors of The Dial Inn for the first time today. Good luck!

Oh and a limited number of mounted A3 size prints are available for £40 each ❤️

Bless this f€%#*$g lush house!

Been playing on my amazing embroidery machine and of course pretending to be one of the Bronte sisters, sitting by the open fire, patiently stitching my sampler (have imagination – run wild).

The result is this gorgeous grey fabric embroidery piece in a vintage wooden frame for that authentic look.

It is just £20 – can be picked up from the studio or we can send out to you if you add £3 postage and packing!

Oh and I can also make these to order with your own “sweet” wording ❤️

Bats about Halloween …

Are you batty about bats? This cool bat drawing came straight out of Freshwater East (not hell) and was just finished by Lee. As a special Halloween Treat we will sublimate this image onto a soft, white poly-cotton Tee for just £12.

Order before 31st October for this special price. Pick up from the studio or we can post it out to you for an additional £3.

Bats all folks!!!

Pointing the Finger …

I simply love how humour helps change perceptions in some life situations. Yesterday we had a fabulous customer at the studio who had a little accident with a carbide cutting blade and unfortunately lost the top of his finger.

A visit to Lee at the studio and the result is a quite wonderful work of art on the top of the remainder of his finger.

I think it’s a brilliantly smiley example of unique and wonderful tattoo art. Just love it!

A feather in my cap…

I blinkin’ love weddings I really do! I’m so happy to have found the perfect dress to wear to a wedding I’m going to this week and I am excited to wear it for the first time. However it’s the little finishing touches that I have such fun with and so I made this teeny little fascinator hair slide to exactly match my fabulous new (to me) true vintage dress. I think that the fascinator is a proper feather in my cap don’t you?

Proud to be Nice, Caring and Very Hyper …

Well I’ve been having a pretty fun time in The ThreadShed over the holidays with lots of lovely visitors getting all arty farty …

First up was the very lovely Emily who enjoyed designing a cute tee for her little sister…

And just as Emily was leaving this gorgeous pair of holiday-makers arrived. They were visiting the area with their mummy and daddy, who very gratefully snuck off for a scrummy lunch, at our fabulous village pub, the Freshwater Inn, whilst the children enjoyed being T-shirt designers …

Both sets of visitors wrote in my brand new “Leave Me a Beautiful Message” book! I must remember to ask all my customers to do this because, after all, life needs to be filled with beautiful messages don’t you think?
