Lucy Love­heart

Win a unique art prize from this amaz­ing artist!

EDP Norfolk - - Inside -

THIS MONTH one lucky win­ner will re­ceive a cus­tomised paint­ing by lo­cal artist Lucy Love­heart.

Fa­mous for her fairy­tale style, Lucy’s dream-like paint­ings of palaces and gar­dens have won her pres­ti­gious com­mis­sions for iconic hotspots such as Kew Gar­dens, Blen­heim Palace and Chatsworth House. She has also worked with a num­ber of char­i­ties at home and abroad, in­clud­ing Amnesty In­ter­na­tional, EACH, The Ham­let and the Fairy­land Trust.

Now Lucy’s En­chanted Gar­den series, in­spired by her love of her beau­ti­ful Nor­folk gar­den, have fea­tured in a range for Marks and Spencer. Her whim­si­cal il­lus­tra­tions have ap­peared on can­dles, bath and shower treats, wash-bags and tins, and her or­chard, herb gar­dens and flow­ers have also in­spired a new range of fra­grances. For Christmas, her il­lus­tra­tions have even more sparkle, and the prod­ucts have been infused with the fes­tive scents of or­ange, clove and car­damom.

Hav­ing stud­ied at both Nor­wich Univer­sity of the Arts and Royal Col­lege of Art, Lucy re­turned to Nor­folk. She and her hus­band have worked hard to cre­ate an ar­bo­real gar­den, and she hon­ours it in her paint­ings. With shim­mer­ing trees, jewel-like flow­ers and wide skies which are sprin­kled with del­i­cate stars, she cel­e­brates the peace­ful na­ture of a county which is also teem­ing with life. At the heart of the series is an imag­i­nary house in­spired by the houses and halls at Blick­ling, Hey­don and Wolter­ton, which are se­cretly nes­tled within the county’s wide land­scape.

The En­chanted Gar­den series is the ba­sis of this month’s prize, which will see orig­i­nal work recre­ated and cus­tomised by Lucy to in­clude five per­son­alised icons of the win­ner’s choos­ing. Whether this is Lucy’s take on your fam­ily mem­bers, pets or a par­tic­u­lar build­ing or land­scape, this is a prize with the per­sonal touch and where real life meets fairy­tale.

The art it­self will be heart-shaped and will be sup­plied un­framed. It will be win­dow-mounted and will mea­sure 58 x 58 cm.Š
