The Blue Eye of the Tiger …

Sorting through my photos today to try and release some additional storage space I came across this absolutely awesome Tiger from last year.   Lee created this piece on my daughter Poppy’s thigh and I think it is an absolute showstopper! 

Lee had the idea of adding to this thigh piece with a range of beautiful animals all in similar triangular shapes to create a leg sleeve.  Whilst I do think this would be a spectacular leg piece Poppy has decided to go for something a bit more floral when she adds some surround to the work.

Them boots were made for painting … 

So…we have a little shop on Amazon (Handmade at Amazon section – which sadly doesn’t allow us to sell our quirky clothes and Tshirts yet) where we showcase some of our arty farty stuff. In the shop are some of our hand-painted and hand-appliquéd handbags and briefcases, and we also sell prints of Lee’s awesome artwork. Every print is strictly limited edition and with Elvis, Bowie and other icons we have lots on offer. However our top selling item in our shop is this awesome Doc Marten’s print which has been in high demand. Just recently one was bought as a wedding present for a couple of old skinheads. What an awesome wedding present huh? 

I love that Lee’s artwork is displayed in homes all around the country.  Lee thonks that like all good artists his art will probably be worth more when he is dead … I much prefer the thought of people enjoying his art whilst he is definitely alive and kicking (in his Doc Martens of course). 

Oh and if you would like to order amy of Lee’s prints just drop us a message direct … it will save Amazon robbing us of 25% 😄

Fine art … 

Lee recently completed this wonderful tattoo inspired by  piece of art by Alberto Giacometti, a Swiss born painter and sculptor who died back in 1966. 

Our customer’s son was undertaking  an art project and the striking image dropped out of his art folder and dropped to the floor. It was found by his fascinated father who immediately thought it would make a pretty great tattoo. Of course, with Lee as your tattoo artist,  it makes an absolutely spectacular tattoo! 

Dying Romantic …

Lee recently completed this amazing tattoo on one of our regular customers.  The customer is also an artist currently creating some wonderful pottery work, and Lee always enjoys their  arty farty chats whilst he works. The customer drew up this beautiful design himself and Lee brought it to life on the skin.

Snow White with love ❤️ 

Lee and I had our very first wedding anniversary at the weekend (also his 51st birthday of course) and to celebrate we booked a cute little circus wagon in North Amsterdam which we found on Air BnB. 

I awoke in the wagon in the big cosy bed, with the birds singing and the sun shining, and my romantic husband presented me with a red heart shaped box. I was so thrilled when I opened it to find this beautiful Snow White brooch that Lee had hand crafted in Das clay with a scalpel, and hand painted in acrylics  especially for me. 

Snow White is so very special to me as my angel Abigail adored Snow White and we played “Some day my prince will come” at her funeral. 

I waited a very long time for my prince but he was definitely worth that wait …  ❤️🌈⭐️🌹💜

Fresh designs at The Freshwater Inn

So this weekend I have been mostly making polo shirts which were commissioned by The Freshwater Inn. 

We are so lucky to have this  warm and welcoming village pub as our local. The pub is situated in Freshwater East village just above the  beach and has beautiful sea views from the garden and conservatory.  The pub has just had a super duper make-over and the owners wanted some smart  new polo shirts for their staff team. 

Lee drew the original design for them (it’s absolutely  not just an off the shelf font folks)  and I got busy with the vinyl and cutting. 

We just took all the polo shirts up to pub and had a super scrummy Sunday lunch too! Absolute result! 

What do you think? (Dexter stuck his nose in the photo …good job it’s a dog friendly pub!) 

Tiger for the son … 

Lee’s son is away studying something nerdy at Uni and came home for Xmas. Despite being almost 21 and the son of a talented tattoo artist he has never before wanted a tattoo. Lee was delighted to receive a request for a leg-sleeve and enjoyed a couple of father/son tattoo sessions over the Xmas holidays. This fabulous tiger is just the start of a magnificent leg piece in progress …
