Bring a timeless elegance to your home with Biddy Picard's artwork. Born in 1922 in Derbyshire, she attended Chesterfield School of Art, followed by the acclaimed Slade. Having taught art in Bristol and Wales, she finally settled in Cornwall in 1974 and became a long term member of the Newlyn Society of Artists. her paintings and ceramics evoke a natural beauty, with a refined and sophisticated feel.

Biddy and Bill Picard's unparalleled craftsmanship is reflected in this unique range of pieces, each hand-crafted in the picturesque Lamorna Valley. With a style that has been showcased in galleries across Cornwall, the Midlands and beyond, Biddy Picard's wooden creations exude sophistication and timeless elegance

Biddy's paintings are widely collected and included in many private collections in both the United Kingdom and Europe. “I try in my painting to convey some of the particular magic of West Penwith; the feeling of remoteness, the intensity of light and the rapid changes of mood. Thrusting into a restless sea, it is an “end place” where little harbours cling to the stern granite rocks, for me a special land unlike any other”. Due to failing eyesight Biddy unfortunately no longer paints but remains as vivacious as she ever was.

Bring a touch of the Cornish seascape into your home with this beautiful 125mm square greeting card. A charming white cat languishes on a windowsill, delicately crafted with an eye for detail and the intensity of light that characterizes her work. Printed onto a luxuriously thick 250gsm matt white board, this greeting card is the perfect way to add a splash of culture to any room.
