This piece has been born out of my love of flowers and poppies in particular. They hold great meaning for my husband and many others living in the area, where there are so many people with military connections.

I hope the sentiment touches you in the way it touches me and so many!

After 30 years of teaching in London primary schools, I was medically retired and finally had time to do the things I had always wanted to. I moved to Shrivenham when my husband got a job here and joined the Shrivenham Art Society. It was a bit daunting at first, as I hadn’t done any art since my school days, but 3 years on I am now running the art society.

If you would like to see more of my work, please look at my Facebook page. Art by Kate Mortiboy. You will find a link there to my page on ‘Love from The Artist’s Webpage, where you will find cards of my original artwork.

I also do the Faringdon Country Market a couple of times a month, where I sell cards and prints of my artwork as well as originals. Please pop by and say hello!
