Beastie Assemblage

Linda Lovatt grew up on a smallholding in Shropshire, surrounded by fields full of wild flowers and quizzical animals, which she loved to paint and sketch. She went on to train as an illustrator and designer at Shrewsbury School of Art and then Glyndwr University, then worked freelance for the next 20 years for various gift companies and museums.

Linda lives at an old watermill near the Jed river, with a large and unruly garden. While digging her garden, she kept finding beautiful pieces of pottery, old keys and bottles hidden in the soil like pieces of treasure. This inspired her to create her Beastie Assemblage range, drawing on her love of folk art and French automata.
