My studio is a large room out the back of the Janet Bell Home shop. I spend a lot of time here at the computer out the front too. Such hardship!
I love being surrounded with such beautiful things and helping to style them. I only ever choose things for the shop that I love and would have in my own home too. How could you possibly, genuinely sell something to someone that you don't love? The thing I can't live without is plants.
I have to admit I am terrible at looking after them, always under watering or overwatering so I have to admit to being a huge fan of the wonderful Air plants we sell, just a slight mist 1-2 times a week is my kind of care.
We also sell succulents and fabulous faux flowers with hundreds of different vessels to put them in.
Here's a small selection and an easy way to display them.
We also sell a huge selection of books relating to plants, botanic style and gardening. Have a look at the website to browse our selection.
It's about seven years since I last wrote a blog post. I started my old blog 15 years ago and was fully immersed in the blogging world as I found it a brilliant way to connect with other creative people while painting from my studio, which could sometimes be quite lonely.
