Lucy♥Loves Monty’s debut appearance! September 2012

I am pleased to announce the first painting including Monty and Matilda my two beloved dogs!  Matilda of course has starred in many paintings, but Monty our puppy is now going to be added in selected paintings too and this is the first!  See if you can spot him!  The title of this little original canvas is “Are we there yet?”

Lucy♥Loves Our new addition July/August 2012

Welcome Monty our tiny Miniature Jack the latest addition to our little family. Matilda will still star in every painting but watch out for Monty in some of them too… Like all of our little family Monty has discovered the joys of beach life already.

Lucy♥Loves Vintage style June 2012


I have had so much fun this month adding a bit of shabby chic vintage style to my art studio. I have been heading off to the local Bridport Antiques market on a Saturday and picking up all sorts of hidden gems. Vintage jars for my paint brushes, antique fishing crates for my paints. I have also found a fabulous painted wooden cabinet to display all my favourite inspiring treasures like pebbles I have found on the beach, shells from New Zealand and local ammonites from local fossiler and friend Burnie. I find my studio even more inspiring now, a hive of creativity in this inspiring space. I feel very lucky.


Lucy♥Loves Lyme Regis May 2012

Every now and again I fall even deeper in love with Lyme Regis.  I feel I know it so well but now and again I see it with fresh eyes and fall in love all over again.  This month after climbing Cobb Hill as I have done time and time again I turned around at the top and my breath was taken away not by the steep hill but by the beauty of Lyme.  Back to the studio I have been busy sketching to make my next painting of this stunning view.  How lucky am I to live in such a stunning part of the world…

Lucy♥Loves April 2012

This month I have discovered a great little app called instagram.  By taking a little snap shot from my phone of my daily life I can use instagram to convert my photos into professional looking arty shots.  It’s great fun and strangely addictive.   It is great for capturing a little insight into my creative process.  Every time I add an Instagram I will post it on my Lucy♥Loves page so feel free to have a look when ever you fancy, or simply join in the fun and try it yourself…

Lucy♥Loves March 2012

During the month of January after visiting Salcombe we had an afternoon in Dartmouth, Devon.  One of my favourite coastal towns and one I have been planning on painting for some time.  Back in my studio I have been enjoying transforming my inspiration into a Dartmouth painting, enjoying capturing the colourful waterfront houses and the hustle and bustle of boats.  I have just finished the painting entitled Anchor’s Ahoy!  Feel free to look at my photo of Dartmouth then followed by the completed painting.  Matilda is a little harder to spot on this so I have added a close up for you to see her…  I hope you enjoy spotting her…
