Now that Alex's artwork features on so many different products, from Notebooks to Bookmarks to Oven Gloves and plenty of things in between, it's easy to forget that she started out selling her first designs of Greetings Cards and Art Prints at craft fairs. Alex's business has grown a lot since the early days but some things never change, and one of those is the inimitable character and warmth she puts into her artwork. That's what makes us want to bring Alex's paintings into our homes.
Alex's watercolour paintings begin with some inspiration; it might be an animal she's seen while out and about, a photograph, or as you know, a familiar friend like Elsie or Betty. She starts with a vague outline and builds up the detail bit by bit - the colours and textures, the mischievous looks on the animals' faces and last but not least, those rosy cheeks we all know and love.
So that's why this month we've chosen Alex's Watercolour Art Prints to take the limelight on our website. With so many people moving home, celebrating anniversaries and special events over the Summer, we think now is the time to treat yourself, or someone special, to a lovely new piece of artwork to hang up in their home. I love this Caravanners print,it reminds me of Summer holidays, when we were young and 6 whole weeks off school was just too good to be true. I just wish we had the weather to match!
