Announcement   Here, and only here, on Etsy, will you find my newest original works most of which will be reproduced as giclee paper prints and canvas giclees in any size. Take your pick. If you don't see the size of your choice just email me and I will be glad to include it.
Listed on the side of the "home page" will be originals, limited edition prints and canvas giclees. Last, but not least, there are 38 greeting cards to choose from, all frameable since they are printed on 100lb archival paper.

You may wonder why my focus is on children, family and at times, pets. I have always been fascinated with form, particularly with anatomy of toddlers tottering around of those wobbly unsure legs and their sweet interaction with other little ones in their own world. Love and sensibility is what I wish to transmit through my paintings. So sit down with a nice cuppa and a biscuit, or, if it's in the evening, have a glass of guinness with me, browse and fill your basket to your heart's content.
It is my hope that everyone who happens to this site (with or without a full basket) will have a wide smile before leaving. I smile daily!

Lucelle

P.S. Don’t forget to check out my new autobiography, “Accidental Artist: Memoirs of a Flawed & Ignorant Traveller,” published by Escarpment Press. It’s avaiable here on my site by clicking on my smiling visage (above and to the left), which will take you to the book.

About

The Accidental Painter

I won't bore you with details of growing up in London nor my reasons for coming to this wonderful country but from a young age I had always wanted to paint, constantly sketching whatever was in front of me. But it was the figure that interested me most. It was only after I came to the States with two kids tucked under my arms that I was able to realise a dream that seemed impossible. I would visit the local art league where I was encouraged (rather nagged) by various artists to take painting seriously. Thanks to their help I developed an intuitive style that was neither abstract nor too detailed and found a very satisfying 30 year (so far) career which included signing with various publishers who, in turn, distributed my work to galleries and cruise ships around the world, thereby solidifying a reputation I hardly expected to achieve. Now, I cannot imagine a day without the comfort of my easel.

I am now my own distributor, and loving it, thanks to Fine Art America, Etsy and my own website, www.thewonderofchildren.com

    For many years I worked for publishers who distributed my images to galleries and cruise ships world-wide for which I am very grateful. Now, thanks to the internet, I am now able to offer my old and new images directly to the public

Shipping to BRAZIL, CHILE, GERMANY and SOUTH AFRICA has proven to be especially difficult.
