Love Art Designs have been created by my husband Ashley and I (Celia ), who both share the same passion towards various forms of handcrafted pieces of work.
Over the years we have acquired many skills through our works and passions, which have led us to the opportunity to start Love Art Designs.
At Love Art Designs we use our skills to create unique props and games, as well as bespoke creations to complement your needs of exclusive designs and originality.
We are driven with passion to create and we are both very meticulous and thorough. We can therefore achieve any piece required, to purchase or hire, so do not hesitate to talk to us and share your aspirations, we will put our skills together and work alongside you to create it.
Who we are and what we do
Before moving to England from Cannes in France, I worked as a decorative artist, specializing in Venetian polished plasters and specialist decorative paint effects for walls and furniture.
Many years ago I also qualified as a dressmaker while studying in Marseille.
I have always used art in many forms, for my work and as a pass time. It is an essential part of my everyday life.
At Love Art Designs I am using my artistic skills to design and paint the props. My training in dressmaking has proved itself invaluable in the making of costumes for our photoshoot, as well as the fabrication of covers for some of our props. Lately, I have also had to put my computer skills to the test in the building of this website...
Ashley is a highly trained engineer. He has worked for many years in the trade and he is able to fix and create just about anything which requires mechanical or electronic skills.
He also has the aptitude to work with metals which has brought him to design and create stands for our photo boards.
In his spare time he is passionate for woodworking and anything which involves manual skills.
He is very meticulous and his attention to detail drives him to always achieve an impeccable finish in his creations.
His passions and knowledge has led him to create some wonderful pieces of furniture for our home as well as taking on all the wood work at Love Art Designs.
In 2013 my husband and I combined our creative skills, transforming Alverdiscott Village hall into our own personal space for our wedding reception. Personalised props which included a wishing well for wedding cards, a horseshoe archway and bespoke tableware were handcrafted with a personal touch for each of the guests. When one of the wedding party guests asked if they could hire our props for a special anniversary party, the idea for Love Art Designs started to germinate.
Fate intervened shortly after we started working on our latest creation, "Wonder Croquet", a chance meeting with the RHS Gardens Rosemoor's events co-ordinator
led to a commission for a Mad Hatter's Tea Party Peep-Hole Board, to form part of the Garden's Alice in Wonderland exhibition. Visitors to the garden during August 2015 had the opportunity to play croquet with our unique set and pose for family photos behind the Mad Hatter's tea party board.
We have continued to work closely with RHS Garden Rosemoor in the making of another photo board for the 2016 summer exhibition "Rocket Science", contributing to extend children's knowledge of growing plants in space.
Love Art Designs is continuing to grow from strength to strength, with our creative flair and passion for craftsmanship, including designing, painting, woodworking, welding and electronics.
currently working on some very exciting projects which will be available to you for hire very soon.
