About

2017

I am a furniture artist, I hand paint – upcycle – old or tired furniture to give it a new lease of life. Ayr Brushed has been trading for over 2 years now, however I’ve been painting since the 1980’s. It’s a passion, it’s very addictive and I love my work. I like to add a twist to a painted piece by using different fabrics, patterned paper or a hand painted scene, giving it warmth and character, or by trying out a new technique. I hope some of my projects will be inspirational.  

I also welcome commission orders, so if you have unused or unloved items requiring a unique new look, send me a message and I’ll see if I can help.

I’ve recently completed a 6-week Masterclass under the instruction of world renowned Jonathon Marc Mendes via the Painted Love Academy Tutorials and have learned some really great paint techniques including faux rust, marble & stone, faded grandeur, faux leather and a few more.
