"Would Jubilee've It - Seventy Years!" is a special painting created to mark the Queen's Platinium Jubilee and will be for sale via Smart Interiors of Stockton Heath in Warrington, Cheshire, and will feature as part of their commemorative window display.
The painting is 12" x 16" on box canvas andher iconic image is painted in silver (can't get platinum paint, so silver was the next best thing) on a black background. Her tiara, earrings and necklace all sparkle for England - just like the real jewels do.

Raising Funds For The Ukrainian Refugees - Please Help
PEACEFUL SUNFLOWERS 20” x 30” (textured acrylic on board with integrated frame)
It’s not often I do a fundraiser as I know how tight money is, however; this one is a bit different... imagine having to leave your house today with just a rucksack and the clothes on your back, leaving the normality of life behind (your job, your mates, school, your Saturday morning football, the pub - all of it) and leg it to the nearest border to safety because your very large neighbouring country decided to invade, dropping bombs in it’s wake. Imagine not knowing if your house has been flattened or not, wondering if you can ever return home, their future uncertain.
Money may be tight at the minute but we aren’t doing too bad in comparison to the Ukrainian refugees who currently have nothing.
So, knowing that the national flower of Ukraine is the sunflower, and I often paint them, it seemed the obvious thing to do to raise much needed funds for them. So I have painted this especially to aution off.
Please, please buy a ticket or strip (whatever you can afford) - even if sunflowers aren’t your thing; should you win (Sod and his Laws are good at that kind of thing) then you could donate it to the local hospital to brighten up a ward, or a hospice - whatever you choose or gift it to someone who loves sunflowers. It’s all for a good cause. Tickets are £2.50 each or £10 for strip of five.
Please help and donate - you can either go to the pinned post at the top of my Facebook page (if you are on social media) and follow the instructions OR click the link to pay https://paypal.com/pools/c/117910338478171720 then drop me a quick message via here or Messenger, email (whichever is convenient) when you’ve paid via the paypal link and I will give you your numbers.
Winner will be drawn on Sunday, 20th March 2022.
From one human to another - let’s help all we can.
Thank you and best of luck.
I am beyond excited to announce a new collaboration with Smart Interiors of Stockton Heath in Cheshire whose main designer and owner, Pamela Shakeshaft, is the 7th generation of her family to be involved with interior design, so it's safe to say it's in her blood and she definitely knows her onions (well, wall covering and fabrics!).
Smart Interiors is situated within the Smart Furnishings 'family' on Chapel Lane in Stockton Heath (WA4 6LL) where you can buy your own three piece suites and feature wallpapers, to marble kitchen worktops and luxury bath tubs thus furnishing your home in a matter of weeks all from under the same roof.
I will be collaborating with Pamela in creating my bespoke home accessories to match their future luxury interior design projects plus my own creations will be on display there, too. If you are in the Cheshire area, don't hesitate to go in and say hi (click for directions), it's a real hidden gem and you won't be disappointed - plus you get to see my popular home accessories 'in the flesh' as it were as photographs don't always do them justice. There is a reason why my repeat customers return more than once. So go and check it out for yourself.
