Electrify your home with these gorgeous wallpapers from Abigail Edwards. We love their hand-drawn feel as if a very talented friend has come over to create a bespoke wall treatment just for you.
If a whole wall of storm clouds is a little gloomy for you, why not frame part of a panel for an instant piece of art?
We absolutely adore H. Craig Hanna’s portraits that capture the very soul of his subjects. He has a distinctive style of layering his paintings using painted perspex to give depth and space for light and shadow to cast over his artworks.
