Bella Green is an artist who works in oils

Bella Green Art

Lockerbie

phone: 01576 204646

I enjoy creating playful compositions from everyday observation of objects and places. Table top vistas, memories of places and people, they all flow into my mind as I paint. Vessels, jugs and pots of flowers, windows and views from inside to outside are favourite and recurrent themes.

Bird forms, for me a symbol of the creative spirit, also inhabit my imagination and my work. Strong design and expressive colour, simplification and decorative reorganisation of the facts are all used to explore these subjects. Through my paintings I hope to share with you what I see and also how my imagination is sparked by my observations.

By Dee McLean, Hampstead Heath in summer

Dee McLean Art

London NW5

Dee is an artist inspired by nature, be it her local Hampstead Heath, Louisiana or Canada - the latter two are important to her because she lived in the former and her daughter now lives in the latter.  Dee has a background in medical drawings but in recent years has returned to painting the natural world using watercolours predominantly. She captures the detail of vegetation while her paintings transmit the relaxed nonchalence of the natural world.  Dee is very committed to communicating how climate change is affecting the planet and her art depicts a changing world. You can buy giclee prints of Dee's original works, or commission a painting.

Edward Bulmer Natural Paints

Edward Bulmer Natural Paint

Court Of Noke, Pembridge, Herefordshire, HR6 9HW

phone: 01544 388535

Eco-friendly paints are paints that don't off-gas and don't contain plastic. Edward Bulmer Natural Paint offers an extensive palette of wonderful colours and a paint that is plastic free and breathable. The paint is microporous which means it lets walls and woodwork breathe naturally. It does not form a plastic film which traps in moisture and mould. Owners of heritage and listed buildings understand the importance of breathable paints on old substrates but this is just as important for modern buildings. The matt chalky finish of our natural paints has both exceptional depth and a subtle response to light, which synthetic paints can't mimic. Colours are formulated by Edward Bulmer and the paint is manufactured in the EU.

Lindleywood handmade bird boxes are novel and fun

Lindleywood

Helen & Simon Lindley, 17 Pastures Road, Barrowby, Grantham, Lincolnshire, NG32 1AZ

phone: 01476 560707
At Lindleywood we design and hand-make original, fun wooden bird boxes and other products for home and garden. We also use only British suppliers; so we buy our sustainable European redwood pine from a local wood-merchant and use hardwearing non-toxic wood paints from an independent UK manufacturer.
 
Our products are often in the national media, such as on ITV's Love Your Garden and The Alan Titchmarsh Show. They make ideal gifts for all occasions where you want to give something that's well-made and unique.
