“Something caught my eye…”

Poppies on the Beach – Kate Heiss

Glynnis Bainbridge, one of Courtyard’s stewards, shares a personal favourite available to buy in the Courtyard Shop…

Poppies on the Beach – original framed linocut by Kate Heiss. Framed, £60.

“I love the simplicity of the print and the delightful colour combination”, says Glynnis. We agree, Kate is a real talent and definitely one to watch – some of her work is now published by the fine art card publisher, Art Angels.
