Tony George

Recently I visited Tony George (my brother) who lives in Norfolk. He is a maker/designer, but that title really doesn’t do him justice. He has made interesting sculptures which he has all over his house, -a house which he designed and built almost single handed. He has a natural sense of design and can apply himself to any task. He is currently refurbishing two properties in Norwich with the intention of opening a gallery and a shop.  


Elizabeth Merriman

I started collecting the work of Elizabeth Merriman a number of years ago. I’m really pleased with my most recent acquisition, a painting in oil ‘two pears and crocus’.

Elizabeth Merriman completed her BA (Hons) in Fine Art at Canterbury College of Art and followed this with a post-graduate higher diploma at the Slade School of Fine Art where her work was shortlisted for the Barclays Young Painter award.
Her work has featured in several London galleries with work now in a number of private and corporate collections including Unilever.
Now living and working in East Anglia, Elizabeth’s work has also been shown at galleries in Norfolk, Suffolk and Yorkshire.
Here are a few other examples of her work, which include pastels, oil and pencil drawings.



Alice Pattullo

An artist who we spotted in Ulverston last November seems to be attracting a lot of attention recently. We fell in love with the distinctive style of Alice Pattullo who’s screen prints in beautiful vintage colours are to be seen all over just now. Take a look at her work at: http://www.alicepattullo.com and see for yourself. The shop was the very lovely The Shop Floor Project. She had done some exclusive screenprint editions on unusual country pursuits;

We bought a print of a seabird in a hat from her Superstitions portfolio;

Mark Hearld exhibition.

We were invited to the opening of Mark Hearld‘s exhibition at The Yorkshire Sculpture Park last week and squeezed ourselves around a very crowded gallery. We went again today so that we could get a proper look. We took our thirteen year old daughter Lily, who is really interested in all types of art. The light there was beautiful today and it would have been nice to have had the time to walk around the lovely grounds.
