About
The gallery is now open. Thuline is a professional artist specialising in animal portraits, mainly farm animals and pet portrait commissions. In her studio-gallery she sells originals, prints and gifts with her animals on (cushions, aprons, coasters….). She runs small workshops, up to 6 people. These can be for individuals, families, businesses, friends... On location, she can work with bigger groups. These can be organised on very short notice. Or you can come and watch her paint. Thuline does demonstrations too. Thuline also exhibits originals and limited edition prints all over the UK and Ireland. There is a permanent showcase of her work in the Jumbleroom, Grasmere. “I observe animals, their shapes, gestures and mannerisms and in developing my ideas, I take them quite often out of their context. I like using bold colours.” Thuline takes online orders too.

    Windermeres best art workshop
    We were very lucky to have a workshop, painting highland cows with the lovely Thuline. As a total novice, I was encouraged and well guided. The children (6 & 10) were dealt with care and patience and positively supported throughout. We have already booked our second session! Thank you Thuline!
    Thanks for this review. You guys did great and we're lovely to teach

    Excellent studio, well worth a visit
    Visited this great gallery 10/8/23, Thuline and her husband were so welcoming I booked a workshop with her for 12/8/23. Thuline was so easy to talk to and helped me produce a painting I would never have attempted on my own. Definitely recommend a visit and a workshop. There’s a great selection of products in the shop so everyone could take a treat away according to range of budgets.
    Thank you. You were a pleasure to teach and came out with a lovely piece

    Wonderful cows!
    As well as amazing artwork - we particularly adore Thuline's cows - the service I received after ordering a painting online was first class. Not only was the Gallery incredibly helpful, but my painting arrived, as promised the following day. For anyone visiting the Lakes I would definitely recommend a visit to the Gallery to see Thuline's beautiful paintings or for those not so fortunate, Google her artwork online.

    An enjoyable and relaxing day.
    What a wonderful way to spend the day in the Lake District. Having limited artistic experience I was apprehensive, however I am over the moon with the canvas painting I produced under the talented and relaxed guidance of Tuline. It was what I imagined painting should be…..a labour of love but also a great way to relax and be creative. Located centrally in Windermere the studio is at the back of the shop displaying lots of Tuline’s wonderful paintings. We went as a group of four and this was perfect with our own pictures but you can also choose from many that are on offer. Really enjoyed the day and was very well looked after. The shop/studio had many visitors even for a cold February Sunday so she is definitely doing something right Thank you for an amazing day… comments from others in the group. “A fun and artistic day” “A great day spent where I get like a real artist”

Walking through Windermere I actually crossed the road to look at the gallery as the highland cow paintings in the window caught my eye. On entering the gallery there was so much to choose from. Thuline was so helpful and a pleasure to chat to. I ended up buying two canvasses and Thuline signed them for me putting the name and the year on the back. Such a lovely touch! If you’re in the area please go visit.

We had a great afternoon of painting cows with Thuline and listening to music. Thanks for your art tutorial! Five stars!

Sung to the tune of Jolene - by Dolly Parton (or if you prefer, by the White Stripes)

[Verse 1]
Thuline, Thuline, Thuline, Thuline,
I'm begging of you, please don't take my cow.
Thuline, Thuline, Thuline, Thuline,
Please don't paint her just because you know how.

[Chorus]
Your art is stunning, it's clear to see,
But my cow is special, she means so much to me.
So Thuline, Thuline, Thuline, Thuline,
I'm pleading with you, don't paint her, let her be.

[Verse 2]
You could paint the mountains, the lakes, the trees,
But my cow's beauty is all I need to see.
Thuline, Thuline, Thuline, Thuline,
Please don't take her away from me.

[Chorus]
Your art is stunning, it's clear to see,
But my cow is special, she means so much to me.
So Thuline, Thuline, Thuline, Thuline,
I'm pleading with you, don't paint her, let her be.

[Bridge]
I know you have a gift, a talent so rare,
But my cow's the one thing that I hold dear.
So Thuline, Thuline, Thuline, Thuline,
Please don't paint her, I'm begging you my dear.

[Chorus]
Your art is stunning, it's clear to see,
But my cow is special, she means so much to me.
So Thuline, Thuline, Thuline, Thuline,
I'm pleading with you, don't paint her, let her be.

[Outro]
Thuline, Thuline, Thuline, Thuline,
Thank you for understanding me.
I'll find another subject for you to paint,
Just not my cow, can't you see?

We visited the studio on a trip to the Lakes District and was blown away by the beautiful art represented in prints, cushions, mugs and a huge variety of items. Gorgeous one off pieces and the hospitality of the lovely shop owner who showed us her current work was overwhelming. If we were staying longer we would have absolutely booked in an art class with her. Truly gifted artist with absolutely beautiful pieces that we will definitely purchase more of to adorn our home.

I am so pleased we visited the studio! The quality of the pieces Thuline sells are just fantastic. The perspectives of her work are just wonderful and give the subjects (mainly animals and cows) such a fun perspective.

We both bought some items as we loved her work.
She and her partner were so welcoming and also mentioned that they do workshops which is really good to hear. From large originals to coasters for cups and mugs, there is so much variety.

Well worth a visit when you are in the Windermere area. I can't wait to go back again!

This is an update of my earlier review, which I've left in its entirety below. Having done an 'animal' workshop (see below), and having loved it, I decided to do an online (due to Covid) day with Thuline doing a landscape course. Apart from the usual Zoom glitches, it was fantastic. I'm really pleased with the result so far and had a great day. Thuline has even given me some advice as to how to make it even better - I'm just having a breather before I start!

I commissioned some art for my mum’s 60th birthday - 3 paintings of my parents’ beloved cats. My mum was familiar with Thuline’s work and we’d seen her on Home Is Where the Art Is, to my mum’s delight! Thuline was very quick to respond to emails and helpful with working out a composition. The paintings are absolutely beautiful and my mum was thrilled and moved to tears. Thuline captured the cats’ personalities perfectly and my whole family love the paintings!

We took part in one of Thuline’s art workshops. Wow what an experience! I have not picked up a paint brush since school (and that was a long time ago!!).

We chose our pictures, a horse and a highland cow. We were taught really well and had to draw our outline first and then start painting.

The whole experience was fun and full of laughter and stories and fabulous music by Dave (Thuline’s husband). To finish off the day, we were taken to a fabulous pub for a drink. What more could you ask for. Don’t hesitate or think twice ... book a course. You will not be disappointed and you will have a picture ready to hang on the wall! X
