This page shows the range of canal art work I produce. Some of my work, for instance cabin door panels, milk churns and Buckby cans, is largely by commission and I am always happy to work with clients to develop their project ideas. In addition I am often approached by people who have an item of their own which they want decorated - churns, boxes, flat irons, even spinning wheels and old enamel potties! They all look good with a canal art makeover.

As a general rule enamelware, galvanised ware and timber items paint-up well so do contact me if you want to discuss any ideas. In addition I produce a range of “stock items”, including some giftware, and you can see my current stock by clicking the “For Sale” button.

Cabin Doors and door panels (top right) - Traditional roses and castles panels painted on interior and exterior doors and hatchways. Also retro-fit panels for interior door restorations.

Planters/Seed Trays (below) - Planters and herb trays (or seed trays) are always popular on narrowboats and in the home. I produce both wooden and galvanised planters. The wooden planters and herb trays all have waterproof interior linings.

Jugs (left) - Always popular on the boat, in the home and as gifts. They come in a myriad of styles and sizes.

 

 

 

The Boatman’s Cabin Stool (below) - was an essential piece of equipment for the old boatmen. Small and compact but ideal to sit on when doing odd jobs and repairs. My cabin stools come in three sizes and a range of colours and patterns.

Kitchenalia (below) - For people who like canal art or want a little bit of industrial heritage in their own homes I find that items of kitchenalia are popular. I find some of these items myself when rummaging in antique shops and people often bring me their own for a make-over.

Cans (left and right) - Decorated watering cans often appear on narrow boats but I am also often asked to paint up “Dad’s old galvanised can” making it a pleasure to use once again.

Churns (left) - From full size milk churns personalised with your boat name or house number to small indoor churns ideal for dried flowers, kitchen utensils or paint brushes.

One Offs (below and right) - I am always amazed at the variety of things which can lend themselves to canal art and people’s imagination which brings me these interesting items to transform - everything from wheel barrows to spinning wheels, step ladders to potties - I’ll have a go at any of them!
