One of my passions and beliefs is to enrich children through literature and to get the young ones reading more with the aid of my artwork and inspiring them to use their imaginations.
I had the absolute pleasure of painting a mural for the Astley Book Farm during the summer of 2019. Vivienne, the Owner, approached me during one of my many visits about an idea she had to create a feature to encourage children to visit the Children’s Hayloft, which is full of inspiring, fun and nostalgic (for me anyway) goodies.
As a long term customer to the Astley Book Farm I was very happy to create a mural up the stairs. Where is the children’s section? Why it is at the top of the Beanstalk. As the Largest 2nd Hand Bookshop in the Midlands, this hidden treasure has the most amazing selection of books for young and old. As an avid reader I love every visit. Each nook and cranny via the winding corridors you find information, thrills and fantasy. Not to mention the armchairs dotted around to sit and peruse your potential purchases (try to say that quickly!). What do you do after finding all your books – get a cup of coffee and something to nibble on from the superb cafe. What more could you want in life?
My designs are available on premium quality clothing via my Spreadshirt shop. I use Spreadshirt as a platform as it is a POD (Print On Demand) site, which allows my customers to have access to a large range of products which I couldn’t possibly supply myself. After months of researching I found this shop to be one of the best. The premium range also ensures that the print quality is better which gives me peace of mind that my designs will be as vivid and eye-catching as intended.
I love to make any project very personal to my clients, especially when it is created as a family heirloom which will be with them for years to come.
