Hello, I'm Katherine Preece. Owner and creator of Green Door Designs. I have loved being creative since I was a child and particularly enjoy the beauty within nature. My background is within fashion and quite by chance fell back in love with creating artwork through the recent periods of lockdown. Having created many pieces for family and friends during this time, with very complimentary feedback, I have decided to take the plunge and offer my creations to a wider audience.
So why Green Door Designs? The image of a green door is very significant to me. I was married to my husband under the famous green door at River Cottage and a green door was the first thing I painted when I reignited my artistic passion and this very image is featured as my company logo.
Sustainability is also very important to me so the majority of materials I work on have had a former life. Whether it's an old clay roofing tile, recycled Welsh slate or an old watering can. I love the fact that I can reuse and even repurpose materials which could quite easily be thrown away or be sent to landfill. Most of my work can be hung indoors or outdoors due to them being weatherproof. Why should artwork be confined to the indoors when they can be used to beautify your outdoor space too?
I work from my home studio in Gloucestershire and whilst I have some items for sale on this website, my biggest love is working with a client to create the perfect piece as every piece is original and bespoke.. So please have a look at my Gallery for ideas of my creations and contact me for a free consultation.
