Head over to our new blog at Greetings from Robert Kelsey to read more about Roberts beautiful cards.
Come on, dive in !
I like the rich cooling blues in this card by artist Stuart Roy. It makes me think the weather is about to turn, but to what – any ideas ?
About the Artist
Stuart studied fine art whilst at university in Wales and exhibited his work across the country. He started to use photographs for the basis of his paintings and quickly became involved in photography on a professional level.
As well as selling fine art photography, he worked in the West Midlands as a freelance advertising photographer, taking product and PR shots for brochures and various publications.
When he settled in Norfolk the move re-ignited his interest in painting-the pace of life is so different it is not surprising that this is reflected in Stuart’s work.
Although big skies, wide sands and the unique lighting of the Norfolk coast may seem descriptive clichés at times, it is this and the very landscapes of the area that inspire Stuart in many of his paintings.
As an artist he is constantly developing his personal style and exploring new ways of creating work to capture the atmosphere and colour of a seascape.

Since I love walks though leafy lined streets – I wanted to share Autumn Leaf by Nicola Williams, but there are so many to choose from I decided to include a few more of her designs.
Autumn is my favourite season, I just love the colours in the trees, they change almost, on a daily basis. Nicola’s designs are so real you would think you could just reach out and touch them ! The detail is superb.
I enjoy Autumn, it brings with it a seasonal change in diet too. A need for a hearty, warm and delicious bowl of soup – perhaps for lunch or as a warmer after a leafy lined walk !
One of my hearty Autumn Soups is Sweet Potato and Chilli – tasty and comforting with a fiery kick.
- 2 tbsp Olive Oil
- 3 Cloves of Garlic – crushed
- 1 tsp Chilli Flakes or add to taste
- 1 tsp Ground Ginger
- Black Pepper to Taste
- 1 Large Sweet Potato – peeled and cubed
- 750 ml Chicken Stock
- 1 Tin Coconut Milk
- 1 tsp Coriander
- Put Olive Oil into a pan and warm, add the Garlic, Chilli, Ginger, Pepper and cubed Sweet Potato. Stir making sure all the Sweet Potato is covered with the spices.
- Add Chicken Stock and bring to boil, then simmer for 20 – 30 minutes or until Sweet Potato is tender.
- Remove pan from heat and allow to cool slightly, then blitz with a hand blender. Once smooth add coconut milk and return to a low heat to warm though – don’t boil.
- Serve immediately, garnish with coriander.
Serves 2 – 4
This goes great with warm crusty bread rolls too !
