Fine art giclee print of Longhorn cattle in Wanstead Park, East London.
Up to the 1990s it was not an unfamiliar sight to see cows grazing on the common land to the east of London and in the surrounding Epping Forest. They would often come into contact with humans when they strayed into the nearby suburbs. Here they would cause no end of consternation for homeowners and shopkeepers, frustration for motorists, wonderment and fun for children, and something to bark at for dogs.
Unfortunately, BSE brought local cattle grazing to an end in 1996.
In 2020 the City of London trialled an initiative to graze cattle in Wanstead Park. Principally to improve flora and fauna in some of the rougher grassland in the park (to reduce scrub), the cows also drew quite a crowd of onlookers young and old keen to see cattle grazing in a suburban park. They are kept in place using an electronic collar around their necks, linked to an 'invisible fencing system'. No wandering off into the traffic for these lovely ladies!

Lovely postcodes! Really reminds me of the home where I grew up and where my parents still live. Thank you x
Absolutely beautiful watercolour of my very special childhood home for my parents who have been there for nearly 30 years. I live 90 miles away, and with covid I wasn’t able to go and stay and take new photos of the house. Karen was extremely helpful in reflecting changes to the old photos I did have to reflect the house as it is now. Couldn’t have wished for anything better! Thank you so much, they’re going to love it!
I genuinely can’t thank Karen enough! Less than three weeks before my wedding, I came up with the idea of giving my husband-to-be a painting of where we lived while at university. Karen replied to my enquiry incredibly quickly and was able to take on the work despite the short time frame. She was so responsive to all my messages throughout the whole process and was very flexible in terms of the composition (for example, she also painted my fiancé and I walking through the garden). The painting arrived a week before the wedding and I could not have been happier with it. It’s so beautiful and the detail in the painting is amazing - my husband cried when he received it! Thank you so much Karen :)
This is so brilliant, celebrates how happy we felt when Park Lane Stables were saved. Thank you Karen for your beautiful print and the happiness and relief I feel when I look at it !! Chris, a Londoner now living in Yorkshire xxxx
