As well as being a beautiful boutique of loveliness, Posy is a unique gallery space showcasing the work of selected UK artists as well as the paintings of owner Lienne Birch.
Lienne has always had a creative mind and is very much a visual person. After graduating in 2000 with a BA (Hons) in textiles & fashion Lienne continued to paint and create, selling her work through other galleries. She also set up a wedding stationery business combining her design talents and beautiful handwriting and thoroughly enjoyed the process of capturing a bride & grooms ideas & wishes and creating something unique for them. Lienne is often approached for invitations, chalk board writing, place setting cards and seating plans.
Opening Posy has fulfilled Lienne’s lifelong dream to own her own gallery-styled shop filled with beautiful objects, and other talented makers’ work, and to give her a space to create and show her own paintings.
Lienne’s work as an artist is quite varied, she likes to paint wildlife concentrating on strong colour palettes & whimsical twists, working in acrylic paint. She has had many dog commissions, painting beloved pets in a bold and wholesome way, or even to fit in with a clients chosen interior colour scheme.
Watercolour and ink is another medium that Lienne likes to work in and has created many business logos and artwork for various clients. You can see her beautiful work on Lavenham’s very own village map in this style.
Lienne has recently painted a portrait and thoroughly enjoyed the process so is hoping to do more. Lienne’s work is constantly evolving is she is excited to see where it goes.
Examples of her work are in the gallery section of her website and on her Instagram feed.
All commissions are very welcome.
