We must spend apart,
You're still right here with me,
Because I keep you in my heart.
So picture me there beside you
Sitting by the twinkling tree,
And rest assured next Christmas
You'll truly be spending it with me.โ€

This is my publisher Scott from @originpublishingโ˜บ๏ธ We have worked together for 18 years now! โค๏ธ

He began reproducing my artworks after HRH Queen Elizabeth II selected 2 of my paintings displayed at Novotel for CHOGM for The Royal Art Collection.

Scott has revolutionised the print process and won many awards for being the best in his field. There are many processes involved to get to the stage photographed but this is my favourite -

I get to put a piece of myself onto every limited edition print by painting my signature in acrylic, hand signing & numbering and giving my blessing before they are sent off to their new homes.

Scott does do a wonderful job- so nice to see that that is one business that’s still going strong.

We had prints of an amazing original you did for us of our son. It's such high quality! Those paintings in this photo would make great Jigsaw puzzles!!

Happy birthday Amy! It was a pleasure to create this keepsake for you ๐Ÿ’“What an awesome gift idea!

Amy was blown away with this one, I was struggling for a gift idea (I like to be sneaky and innovative) but a quick chat with Donald James Waters OAM sorted that out instantly.

The amazing man created a canvas with Amy as the feature for her 40th birthday celebrations. Then all our beautiful friends personalised it with messages and love.

I am so happy that Don created this for us, but no where near as happy as Amy is right now.

Thank you to all our wonderful friends who came and celebrated with us last night you made the day amazing and we couldnโ€™t be happier to have spent our day with such an amazing bunch of friends we love each and everyone of you thank you for everything you do to make all of our days happy.๏ฟผ
