THE CORNISH GNOME
cheeky cornish gifts, art and gnomish things
"What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?"
My name is Natasha Laidlaw, I grew up in Newquay, Cornwall and moved away for some years for study and work but have been back now since 2003.
My background is primary school teaching but creativity has never been far away from me.
I finally decided to begin learning to paint more professionally in my 40's and the result is H'Art and Design!
My first year of selling professionally led me to paint a range of landscapes, seascapes and underwater scenes in an abstract expressive and fun style.
To Digital Art
More recently I have developed my work in the digital art world which gives me more versatility and a wider range of products to offer you!
I have created 'The Cornish Gnome' which combines my drawings of cute little gnomes in Cornish tartan with the endearing Cornish slang expressions.
So far there is Proper Job, Dreckly, 'Ansum and Dearovim. I hope you like them and they bring a smile....this is my primary aim in designing them....a bit of fun and joy!
