Win a unique art prize from this amazing artist!
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.
