Who doesn't adore biscuits? A framed watercolour of a custard cream or Tunnocks Mallow seems to me to be the perfect 'happy' pick me up and gift idea. I think a whole row of these in your kitchen would look amazing.
There is another aspect of Kate's work which we love, and that is her paintings of buildings, these have a clever layered technique. With these works, she was invited to exhibit at Jelly Pebbles in Liskeard and the popularity of her building and harbour paintings has grown from there.
Kate says she has few vintage pieces at home. Her Dad is an antique bottle collector, so she has some vintage glass ware and also a lovely vintage soda syphon. Also a collection of vintage tins and packaging. She follows the yay retro! Facebook page, and says she is a massive fan of Fiona Gurney's mosaic pieces that we sell in the yay retro! online shop. She says they are "unique and beautifully made, I'd love one of those. Definitely one for my birthday list!"
As you can see, it really is worth taking a look at the KateCreate's Facebook page, Etsy Store and website to see the extent of her range - it's not just biscuits!)
