Brenda Barratt

I work from my studio in Buxted, East Sussex and the seeds of my love of painting were sown in my childhood. I come from an artistic family and learnt at my father’s eccentric knee.

House Portraits – a truly unique gift

The saying goes that an Englishman’s home is his castle.  I think we are a nation of home builders and gardeners.  We love visiting the National Trust homes and gardens and take inspiration from the plethora of glossy magazines.

There is nothing better than having a memento of your treasured home and garden in watercolour.  Or to gift this as a present to a loved one.  I can take prints from the original in order to give all the siblings a copy too – then everyone is happy. A montage of your lives together can be built showing all the homes you have lived in!

Why not give the bride and groom a picture of the church where they were married?  Another lovely gift idea.

This painting is the latest in my London landmarks series. Read what the PMs father, Stanley Johnson, had to say about it.

House Portraits, School & College Prints

I started my career by painting house portraits, which I still undertake on request. You need not worry about the garden. I can paint it precisely how you would like it. Summer can be Winter and Spring can be Autumn.

I also produce limited edition school and college prints. My portfolio includes dozens of schools throughout England.

Architecture and Landscape Paintings

I specialise in architectural subjects and also enjoy painting gardens and landscapes.

Maybe the church where you were married or had your baby christened? Your wedding reception venue? Perhaps you’d like a painting of your childhood home?

If you are a keen golfer, I can paint the 18th hole and clubhouse as a gift.

Covid 19 notice: During the current restrictions, I can still fulfill orders and have them sent out by courier.  Payment can be made on line by 3 different methods in the online shop. I hope you are all well during this difficult time. Thanks, Brenda.
