Christmas Opening - The Suffolk Punch Trust
The Suffolk Punch Trust, near Woodbridge in Suffolk is opening its Gift Shop for last minute Christmas shopping on Mondays and Thursdays this month - 3rd, 7th, 17th and 21st December. If you would prefer to visit at a weekend please phone them on 01394 411327. They stock a good selection of my cards and prints as well as many other tempting gifts. They also have lovely branded goods which range from clothing to biscuits.
Click and Collect
If you live near to Thetford and would prefer to collect your items rather than have them posted you may, until Christmas, "Click and Collect" by selecting the "Cash on Collection" method of payment. When collecting your items you may either pay with cash or by card. Please contact me to arrange a collection time and day. Collections are by prior arrangement ONLY. This saves time and postage.
New Style Cards
I have teamed up with card printers "Love from the Artist" to transform my cards for me. They have done a wonderful job and some are just beginning to filter through in my card packs. Love from the Artist sell my cards directly and also offer wholesale purchases directly from their website.
Focus on Suffolks during September - UPDATE
From my one sale made during September I donated £1.50 to the Suffolk Horse Society, this I personally made up to £10.
A Celebration of Suffolk Horses during September 2020 - 10% Donation to SHS
Normally in September there is a mass gathering and showcase of the Suffolk Punch at their annual breed show, the Suffolk Horse Spectacular. I love to support the Suffolk Horse Society by attending this event with my trade stand over many years. Sadly this event is not happening this year so in order to continue my support I will donate 10% of my online sales (ex p&p) to the Society to enable them to continue their valuable work in promoting and securing the future of the breed which is classified by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust as Critically Endangered, possibly rarer than the Panda.
Sheep Art - August 2020
An opportunity to focus on my sheep paintings. I do love to paint them with the challenge of contrasting textures, of their fleece and horns. I shall be adding more paintings during the month including a stunning Jacob ram, nearing completion. We are so lucky to have such a diverse range of breeds in the UK.
Norfolk Day 27th July 2020
Let's celebrate the historic and beautiful County of Norfolk where I am based. This event started in 2018 with many events to celebrate not just the history and beauty but also its many businesses that help sustain the County. It will be especially important to promote the smaller ones who have really struggled this past few months. Many of my animals may been seen in Norfolk even though, for some, it may not be their natural home. To encourage support for this business I am offering 10% off spends of £20 and over for the Norfolk Day weekend 25th to 27th July 2020 using the code NORFOLK20. Most artists will have been confined to their studio for the past few months and although we can paint we have very little outlet for our work. Our wonderful County and country shows have all been postponed until next year as have most Exhibitions. This mainly leaves selling online - please use the code to support this Norfolk Artist. Thank you.

May 2020 Donation to the Suffolk Punch Trust
To help the Suffolk Punch Trust with the upkeep of their animals at this difficult time I decided to donate 20% of my online sales (excluding p&p) during April. This raised £2.87 which I personally made up to £10 and donated to them on 1st April 2020.
