house of chintz

I stumbled across 'Houose of Chintz' yesterday when looking around etsy....they are just stunning pieces.
below is a quick bio on the designer

House of Chintz is the design label of me Kate Boyce. I was born in Staffordshire and now live and work in Hebden Bridge West Yorkshire. I studied Surface Pattern at Staffordshire University then spent several years designing fabric and giftware for industry.
Then came a change - I moved to the country, got married and had two lovely daughters. I could never give up working but wanted to move away from stringent briefs and ‘chintzy’ floral designs and so motivated by my surroundings I began instead creating and selling mixed-media paintings on canvas. This venture thankfully proved successful for me and I was able to work at home whist bringing up my daughters.
