Di’s Place (Sold)

photo of picture of Di's place

Delivered today. This lovely cottage is in Norfolk, UK. The picture was drawn with traditional dip pens and acrylic in on 220gsm drawing cartridge.

I was pleased and proud to receive this commission, as the owner of the house is the person who inspired me to ‘take matters further’ and turn my quirky houses in to rubber stamps for paper crafters and card makers.

The stamps are manufactured and marketed by Chocolate Baroque in England.

Cotswold Stone

This quaint cottage caught my eye with its lovely stone porch and decorative facia boards. It is built with warm, honey coloured Cotswold stone.

No 24 (Sold)

The client commissioned this piece for a close friend’s birthday. The house is a modern build and, although attractive and in a quiet and pleasant area, is of a modern style. Both the client and the recipient are pleased with my quirky rendition.

Love shack

This cute little holiday cottage became a ‘love shack’. I don’t think the local Romeo made it to the balcony, though.

Warsash clock tower

IMG_0807

This clock tower in Warsash, Hampshire, UK, was build around 1900 as a water tower supplying the local estate. It fell into disrepair and in 1938 restoration work was started. It is now a private residence. The clock originally chimed with the nautical ‘eight bells’, due to Warsash’s association with shipping and the sea.

This is not my usual whimsical, cartoony style, as the building is already quirky enough, without my assistance.

Old school

IMG_0793

This is certainly ‘old school’, and probably in the most idyllic location. It Hyde School in the New Forest, Hampshire, UK, near Fordingbridge and is surrounded by the heathland typical of the area. It was established in 1885, and its new intake will be 10 pupils.
