Shed Art starts with a problem; you have spent weeks or months building your shed, it is something useful, possibly quite beautiful and then when your shed is completed it just sits there at the bottom of the garden - abandoned!!
Shed Art allows you to have an artist sympathetically illustrate your completed shed bringing out its essential character and then allows you to bring it into your house, so that you and your family can appreciate what you have achieved over the last months. If you want you can also make the Shed Art into notelets, a coffee mug, a T-shirt the list is endless....
Photographs of a shed can work really well but given the size of the project they can get lost in the surroundings. Have you ever heard of Artists Licence - well it isn't something that you buy at the post office. It is the artist's prerogative to adjust and bring out the nature and character of what they are painting. Shed Art can help your family understand and appreciate just what you have been working on for the last few weeks/months.

After I had a chat with Eddie the other day he created this image of an ageing Cumbrian sheep shed. I like it I hope that you do too!
Eddie is accustomed to working from photographs and client instructions to achieve outstanding results.
