Luke Martineau Designs

This range of designs is based on painting studies of my own children. It started as a series of alphabetical paintings inspired by the woodcuts of William Nicholson. In the pictures, I want to explore and celebrate enduring aspects of childhood- the simple pleasures of the great outdoors, role play and imagination.

You can order prints of individual letters or of the whole boy’s or girl’s alphabet- see my prints page for details.

card-printThe alphabetical studies initially took shape as a book, Every Girl’s Alphabet, a collaboration with poet and scriptwriter Kate Bingham.

Every Girl’s Alphabet was published as a limited edition in both hard and paperback but I have no copies left of either run. You can still find the odd copy of the softback if you are interested- when I last checked, www.woodbinebooks.co.uk  had some availability.

My designs can now be found on mugs and greetings cards. I have worked with Fenella Smith to evolve a range of tableware.  These items are the perfect birthday, Mother’s Day or thankyou present.

Please contact Fenella Smith direct to check whether she still has availability.
