We hope you will find this a shop with a difference. A shop where you know exactly where your purchase has come from, as well as who designed and made it. A shop that's about people, not production lines - where every beautiful piece has been lovingly designed and created from a person whose story you understand.

An original, hand painted, wooden heart. This heart series was inspired by Lynsay's love of florals. Lynsay thought the perfect way to capture this, would be to paint them within a heart… so the series bloomed!

Painted with abstracted flowers inspired by my floral paintings, this heart is bursting with vibrant, colourful blooms that would brighten any day. It is painted with acrylic and sealed with varnish to protect it. The reverse of the heart is hand painted in a complimenting striped design and signed, it comes ready to hang with a navy satin ribbon.

This piece is sent packaged with a white back board in a clear protective sealed bag and comes beautifully gift wrapped. It will be posted in a hard-backed envelope.

Please Note: Colour varies from screen to screen and devices. Colours are captured as accurately as possible.

Dimensions: Size 15cm x 15cm (Medium)
