“Everything stops for tea” is a painting of teacups and teapots.
“Everything stops for tea” is a painting of some classic, vintage crockery – cups and saucers, and teapots – that many Britons will recognise. It’s the recognition of these crockery designs, and the and memories that they evoke, that is the true intention behind this painting. It’s actually not a painting about vintage china at all – it’s about nostalgia. Seeing something familiar from our past can be a portal into the comfort and security we felt at the time. And if you had a happy childhood, as I was lucky enough to have, that makes the memories sweet. So actually the painting is about love, support of family, friends and community, and memories of happy times. Perhaps your Granny had one of the tea sets I’ve illustrated?
In an ever-changing and unpredictable world, something as simple like a cup of tea from a familiar cup can be an anchor and a comfort. And in my world, tea makes everything better.
Perhaps you will recognise – or even use – some of the vintage china I have illustrated?
