Tessa - the tortoise has been inspired by my holidays to Spain to visit my grandparents where they are in abundance. when staying at their farm house we had an amazing idea to paint small patches with nail varnish on the shell to identify them. A tortoise injured in a forest fire got a prosthetic 3D-printed shell. A Brazilian artist hand-painted the shell. (Ours where not this creative). 


Size: 7 x 5"

Material: Watercolour, Acrylic paper 230gm2, ink, mica powder


This Print has firstly been lovingly hand painted by myself with watercolour and ink and then printed at my local print shop in Devon using a high quality ink jet printer. This print has then been hand painted with mica powder after print to ensure the best quality and a little extra sparkle.


All of my paintings are inspired by the world around me, living on a coastal farm in Devon allows me to gain inspiration from both coast and countryside and this is what gives me my unique style.


All prints are printed by my local print shop, mounted onto a card frame and then individually hand signed and packaged by myself.


*All packaging is reused to reduce the amount of waste so there is no plastic cello bag instead each print is wrapped in brown paper.
