Personalisation

Make your treasured memories even more special by converting them into decoupage art! I will have an open discussion with you to see how best to convert a particular photo, picture or even a collage of it into an art piece. We can discuss what medium you would like to have it done on, any detailing that you would like done and any embellishments. Each piece is made with care and great attention to detail. Prices depend on the medium and time involved. Each piece is unique and takes about thirty days to complete depending on the weather. A typical work on slate measuring 30 cm by 12 cm (12 in. by 5 in.) starts at £240. All of them are signed, numbered and come with a certificate of authenticity.


Giving Back

I had my first display of my handmade goods at a Christmas craft fair organised by the NSPCC where we donated a portion of the revenue we received t o them. We seek to continue to do so and our chosen charity is Lord’s Taverners because they seek to improve the prospects of disabled children and young people coming from a deprived background through cricket. They work to improve their mental well being and help the children that they interact with to reach their highest potential. Their work is not limited to children in the U.K. but extends all over the world where they use cricket to not only promote the game but to bring communities together. They made a donation of 3,500 kg of cricket kit to Cricket Brasil and that story can be found here. They are a charity that makes a real difference at the grass roots level to people who need it the most and their work will be even more important because Covid19 has had a serious impact on those having problems with their mental health and children from impoverished backgrounds.

My husband and I believe that sport and cricket in particular has the power to unite people and break down all boundaries no matter whether the game is played on a cricket ground, indoors or on the table. We will be donating a part of our profits to Lord’s Taverners and will be giving a bigger portion for all personalized commissions that are cricket themed.

I am committed to support small businesses in the U.K. especially those that create handmade products. I use glass or ceramic pots to mix the glue that I use and any remaining paint is stored in plastic containers which is thoroughly cleaned and reused rather than having them disposed. Every life in this precious world we live in is important and each and everyone of us has to do whatever we can to preserve it.



Somerset vs. Essex

Somerset vs. Essex 26th September 2019

I made this piece for Annie Chave who is the editor of County Cricket Matters. It was a thrill and joy to work on this piece because of the range of colours involved and the potential to give the painting even more depth. It took a deeper meaning because of the work Annie is doing to promote County Cricket in England and Wales. This particular piece took a life of its own because it took on the ridges and shape of the slate. The grass and the sky needed a bit more colour to liven it up and we gave a nice shine to the piece that brightened the piece.

Testimonial: “I was absolutely delighted to recieve this wonderful work of art – it is in pride of place in my office. Highly recommend her work – it is stunning. This is decoupage on slate & I love it.
