Pomegranate Peaches is a pseudonym for me otherwise known as Lottie. I am an Artist who creates vibrant illustrations in my English Cottage in the Heart of England. I like to collect Pottery, eat Doughnuts and Swim Wild.
Going back to my roots, I recently launched my Acrylic on Canvas range as a permanent fixture within my business. Being a Cold Water & Wild Swimmer I see the Ocean from a different perspective. Whether it be 5°c or 21°c, I embrace whichever the weather, whatever the time of year & whatever the water current is. This swimming, this wild or cold-water swimming is my cure, my safe place, my healing moment & my escape from the daily troubles that arise due to being a cancer patient as well as someone who can be super anxious.
My Acrylic paintings are hand painted on white cotton canvas & come in various sizes. What you won’t find here is prints of my canvasses. Every single piece is unique & a one of a kind piece. The colour scheme I use throughout is shades of dreamy blues, pinks, lilacs, peaches, whites & oranges. I turn what everyone else sees into my perspective, my interpretation of stormy seas, calm seas, big waves, dark skies, blue skies & so on, I turn this into a dream like piece. In hope to relax the recipient, to calm you, to take you away & for you to see the world in a different light. All my Acrylic pieces are taken from memory of a swim or an ocean view…from Chapel Porth Beach in Cornwall to the blue skies of Lake Pontchartrain Louisiana.
My Original Watercolours are created using mainly Bespoke . Sometimes I use Fine Art Watercolour Inks or Metallic Watercolours. The inks are very pigmented and allow me to paint in a very free-spirited manner. The Metallics add that special and unique flare to my paintings. The Bespoke Handmade Watercolours come from a one-man-band of a business. He sources Gemstones, 24k Gold, Sterling Silver, Natural Earth Dye’s & Plant Based Colours to pigment his paints and he creates each pan of paint by hand, himself. These particular paints are extremely precious, rare and unique. The latter paints are my favourite and achieve a piece with depth, texture, a slight natural shimmer & the colours are all bespoke.
My Artwork has been described as "Beatrix Potter-esque" by a local newspaper. Others describe my designs as Ethereal and Whimsical. Using a mix of some very special watercolour paints makes my pieces stand out from the crowd. Inks particularly are unpredictable, they are not uniform, and they bleed. The combination of these factors mixed with my free-spirited flare, achieves delightful designs that suit any home.
My Prints are printed on the finest Aquarelle Cotton Rag, using a highly sought-after printing technology and an array of printing inks.
My ethics are believing that pieces of art and gifts should not be defined by monetary value. Instead, they should be defined by sentiment, memories and love. You as the recipient or even if this is for a gift, have something to treasure forever without having to pay a fortune for a piece of artwork. I don’t believe in “settling” either, so I do not and will not use high street paints. I truly believe you can see the difference in the colour, texture and flow of my paintings due to the paints I use.
