RJ Art, Crafts & Upcycled Furniture

A website to link the Customers to the Artists

Welcome to RJArts.

Hi there! Thank you for visiting my website.

I am an artist based in Preston, Lancashire. I love painting birds and wildlife but will give pretty mucha naything a go! I specialise in Pet Portraits and upcycled furniture. My furniture is somewhat different to the usual 'shabby chic' styles you often find online. I add an original painting to each of my pieces meaning each item is entirely unique and original.

Whilst wanting to promote my own art work I thought it would be a great idea to generate a directory of artists, making my website an interesting site to view beautiful arts and crafts whilst also offering a platform for linking buyers to the artist themselves. So for as little as £10.00 per month, an artist or 'maker' can have a page on the website, adding their own links and also accessing marketing on the RJArts social media pages.

Take a look around and view some of the lovely items we have to show you and maybe you'll see something unique that takes your fancy!


Pet Portraits are my most popular commissioned work, however I'm willing to give anything a go! If you have an idea, I'll try and make it into a reality, from monsters to human portraits, to landscapes.

Sizes vary from A5 to A1 and commissions can be provided with or without frames and mounts.

Please contact for more details.




Even though I did art GCSE and A Level many moons ago, I'd still class myself as self taught. I rarely picked up a brush for 25 years and have found my style by trial and error. Therefore, I decide to run Art Workshops for Beginners and the Artistically Challenged! I'll give you tips on how I do things and try and help you build your confidence in painting and drawing. It should be fun and you shouldn't care about making a mess. Each project is a lesson.

No rules. Just 'trying stuff out'.

Please contact for more details.




If you want something entirely unique for your wedding day, why not commission a painting and generate your invites and wedding stationary from it? With a background in Graphic & Web Design, I can create your own personal painting, then create invites,

seating arrangements and even a bespoke website should this be something you'd like to utilise. If you'd like to give your family or close friends a memorable gift from the day, prints of your original can be arranged.

Please contact for more details.
