Lampshades

Over the last few years I have been decorating lampshades in a range of shapes, sizes and designs. This is something which is proving increasingly successful and which I love doing. I buy the plain lampshades mainly from a supplier in Dorset who does make shades of a very high quality. I then draw, ink or paint my own designs on these in lightfast colours. I also take commissions - for these I have a book of different designs, fabrics and lampshade styles e.g. empire, retro, coolie, fez etc. This way the customer can pick a design, colour, style and size of their choice..
