Art Gallery

Our walls are full of original artwork and photography by a selection of talented local artists. There’s a wide range of work, from portraits, landscapes, abstract, and lots of cute animal portraits. Each piece is for sale, so if one takes your fancy, you can take it home with you!

Scroll down to learn a bit about our artists and to see their work.



I’m Carolyn and I’m the artist behind arts@willow. I am based locally in Crosby, Merseyside and started my little business after retiring from a fulltime role as Head of HR for an international company – so quite a change for me.

My artwork is created with Alcohol Inks, using heat and cold air flow techniques. Alcohol Inks are spontaneous in nature which makes each piece unique and a one-of-a-kind art. I do not make prints of my work so therefore your artwork will be completely unique, making a superb gift for a loved one (or yourself!)

Photography is my release and the key for being able to get creative as well as exploring new parts of the UK, even if it means carrying some serious weight in the kit bag.

You will often find me waking up at 3am ready for a sunrise shoot, or staying up through the night to capture the stars in the summer months.

Helen S Photography

I love to explore places, ideas, food, books and experiences, which is why I travel as much as I can.

I’ve always taken photographs of all the places I’ve visited and the streets I’ve lived on and want to share them with people in the hopes that others will enjoy my view of the world.

Kirsten Davis

Kirsten Floral Artist

Hi, I’m Kirsten, a mocha-drinking barista with a passion for painting. When I’m not daydreaming in coffee shops, you’ll find me in a little, sometimes-tidy studio in Southport, painting and designing cute, feel-good products and gifts. My passion for owning a little shop stretches back to when I was 14. I’d joined a photography club and decided to sell some prints on Etsy.

As my love for art grew, I went to Lancaster University to study Fine Art. I was lucky
enough to find my own style through a lot of experimentation, and decided to start applying those ideas to products – a mixture of original artworks, and little homeware gifts, and accessories.

Lover of cats and cakes! Looking to spread happiness through portraits of your pets, and taking extra measure to highlight animals with various disabilities!

Phil Blease

Phil Blease

Phil has always had a passion for drawing ever since he could first hold a pencil!

In his work he hopes to achieve an element of realism but with a painterly quality, clearly defining calculated brushstrokes in the finished piece. Painting is his true passion and he couldn’t be happier to be doing it for a living.

“When you can make your passion your career, it will bring you endless amounts of joy and fulfilment.”

Robert Bradley Fine Art

Hello! I am a self-taught landscape painter from Manchester. I work mainly in acrylic and oil, capturing scenes from the natural world – open grasslands, rolling hills, proud trees and big skies, with the occasional still life thrown in.

My aim is to capture the beauty of nature on canvas and bring a little bit of the great outdoors inside.

Tokens of Love and Hope

Tokens of Love & Hope

My name is Lyndsey Hope, I have lived in the North West all my life and have always been drawn to the coast. I use sea glass, driftwood, pottery, pebbles and seashells, which have all been hand collected from the beautiful North West Coast of England.

I also upcycle items such as clothing, greeting cards, jewellery and other trinkets to compliment my art. I suppose I see myself as someone who’s helping turn man’s past mistakes into something positive. Each picture is made with a whole lot of love and passion … by little old me in Ainsdale UK.
