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 ❤️

Hunny Bunny …

What a brilliant day I had helping a holidaymaker find her sewing mojo. The lovely holidaymaker had done some basic sewing in the past but really wanted to get back to it. She booked in at The ThreadShed during a week stay nearby. I was very impressed as truly her sewing was sooooo damn neat and tidy. She picked bright and beautiful bunny fabric too and honestly when finished her skirt looked completely fabulous and fitted her beautifully.

I just love to see the finished items leave The ThreadShed and truly the half circle skirt was simply FAB-U-LOUS ❤️

I had such a good time I need to do more really soon … who would like to book in with me?

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!

Burn Baby Burn…

So… it’s my birthday today and I always get very excited for my birthday gift off The Husband. He is so blinkin’ creative and always surprises me with something extraordinary and very unique that he has made me.

This year was no exception as I received this beautiful present created with the pyrography iron that I bought him for his birthday.

This stunning guitar is going to look absolutely spectacular as an original piece of art hanging on my living room wall but do you know I may even learn to strum a few chords in honour of the fact that this is the first time ever EVER EVER that my portrait has been burnt into a guitar … now how cool is that? ❤️
