The Launch

15th July 2018


Written by Lisa Harker

So welcome to Lisa Harker Quirky Art. Our Truro shop has now been open for business for 9 months and I can’t believe how fast the time has gone! 

After a bit of a ‘sprint’ to the launch on October 6th 2017 we’ve made it through Christmas and then the dreadful weather to blue skies and the wedding and tourist season.

I’ve met some wonderful customers who came in and shared their stories – particularly in relation to ‘Arfur’ our Christmas robin.

The wedding/anniversary/silver wedding/golden wedding heart gifts have also proved very popular and they’re ideally priced for the gift range at £15/20/25 depending on size. It seems that lots of you are delighted with them which brings no end of satisfaction.

We’ve commemorated each of the high days and holidays with a limited edition print:


Christmas of course had Arfur – who has his very own blog post…

Valentines Day introduced a loved-up Cornelius dragon

Cornelius the Dragon

Mother’s Day featured a pink and white daisy print

Wabbit made his dramatic entrance at Easter!


We also have coastal and flora themed presents for visitors to take home a little bit of Cornwall with them. 

Not forgetting of course the bespoke items of furniture which are also available to purchase.

The funny thing about inspiration is that you never know when it will strike – or what’s coming next. So as Summer moves ahead it will be interesting to see what happens… I have a new line in butterfly and flower paintings coming… Stay tuned for the next instalment…

I hope to see many of you in the shop, do come in and say “Hi”. Browsers very welcome!
