LYNNE's PINS

I began painting designs on small circles of wood just on a whim for one of my Illustration Fairs. They really sold well  and I have been commissioned to create individual designs as presents. I really enjoy the process of painting, quickly directly onto the wood and creating immediate, unique characters.

SEASIDE DOLLS

One of my passions is puppet making and I also adore vintage seaside photos with people kitted out in old fashioned knitted swimsuits, which my great aunts told me would sag dreadfully once wet.  These seaside dolls were a prototype and ended up being part of an seaside memory box for an exhibition.

BIRDS

For my wedding I made 80 ceramic birds as place holders with my guests name & their choice of meal attached by a tag, They were a real hit with my guests, many who reused them as Christmas decorations. I made same more birds for a Christmas illustration fair and was asked to make them for other friends weddings.
