About


paintdesignstyle

Paint is the mark on paper, canvas, fabric, wood and ceramics. Design is the idea, the repeated pattern, the thought process behind the painting. Style is the end product, the interior elements that make up loving your home.

    "My painting and design work often has a floral starting point and always an added element of inventiveness and pattern."

About us
Paintdesignstyle is a collaboration of Fine Artists creating and making for the home. Our products range from fine art through to colourful ceramics, textiles, painted furniture and selected vintage pieces. To us every surface is a canvas albeit clay, paper, fabric or wood. Whether using paint, under glaze stains, stencils and collage each project is carefully considered. Furniture is selected to re-invent and adapt for modern living, using the character and history to inspire the transformation. In addition to our own studio work, we have many years experience styling interiors and welcome commissions at all levels. If you need help with one room or your entire house we can guide you through the process.
