I’ve just had a big delivery of tea towels, and as lots of people on Instagram and Twitter have been asking to have a closer look at the different designs, I’ve spent the afternoon photographing my stock. I took them to my dad’s potting shed, firstly harvesting sun flowers and dahlias from the flower patch which has provided so much inspiration for the paintings, and then arranging them inside the shed. Hopefully this post will clarify exactly what I have in stock and how you can order it.
First of all, the new tea towel design, the A-Z of Flowers. Like all my tea towels, this is printed on natural (not white) thick organic cotton, with a hanging loop at the back. The tea towels are printed and made near Manchester. Each one costs £12, plus £3 postage to the UK (I do ship to Europe, the US and Canada, but postage to these destinations costs between £5-£7, depending on where you are). Postage stays the same however many you order. I take Paypal, cheque or direct transfer. Just email me on firstname.lastname@example.org to place an order.
I have two more tea towel designs. The Cutting Garden and The Allotment, which are shown next….
I started painting these designs during lockdown, as a stress-reliever during challenging times. I Tweeted them and got an amazing response. I use Japanese watercolours to get intense shades and tones. I find colour uplifting and I spend my working life writing about plants and gardens, so it all just came together.
I have also had four limited edition prints made of my paintings. They are A3, and are printed on thick, textured watercolour paper. There are four designs: edible flowers, coastal plants, allotment and cutting garden.
The other two designs are the same as the tea towels. The prints cost £22 each with £5 p&p.
I do also sell some original paintings, and these are £45 (unframed). My latest one is a chart of heritage apples, which I painted after visiting our local Apple Day last weekend. (Update: the apple chart is now sold, but I do take commissions for these).
So that’s the line up of prints, tea towels and paintings. I hope you like them. Please ask any questions – via email at email@example.com or you can find me on Instagram and Twitter, where I’ll reply promptly to DMs.
