- Countryside Winter Walks in the UK, and Their Artistic Influence
We are blessed in the UK, with millions of acres of glorious countryside in which to admire the flora and fauna, and enjoy a seasonal stroll.

The treatment of the animal kingdom has long been raised through the arts.

Whether it's on campus, in dorms, or in the home, a space to be able to concentrate, work and be creative is essential...Something that can make an instant difference to a space is the application of colour – from the hue of the walls, the furniture and soft accessories, to the artwork on the walls – it can all have an effect on mood and productivity.
