New range of products based on a work-of-art by UK artist, Lucy Loveheart just released!
Excitement is filling the Hall here at Ragdale, as a new work-of-art by internationally renowned artist, Lucy Loveheart has just been unveiled!
We commissioned the Norfolk-based painter to paint a picture of Ragdale Hall which captured the magic and beauty of our stunning English country house, the spa’s standout features and guest experience. Not only that, we now have a fabulous new range of gifts based on the work-of-art available on our online shop and in our Gift Shop, giving you the perfect opportunity to take a little piece of Ragdale Hall home with you on your next visit.
By playing around with perspective, Lucy was able to bring the Ragdale Hall spa experience we all know and love so well, to life. Not only does the painting capture the Hall’s beautiful countryside setting, but also some of your favourite features, such the Rooftop Infinity Pool and Candle Pool, and guests enjoying pampering treatments, sumptuous food and relaxing in robes.
Ragdale Hall Head Buyer, Debbie Lindfield, said: “For our loyal Ragdale fans, and those new to ‘our family’, we wanted to commission a painting that truly captured the essence of Ragdale Hall and give our guests an opportunity to take a memento of their stay home with them.
“When we saw Lucy’s work, we knew instantly that a collaboration would be the perfect fit. Ragdale Hall Spa is an experience, and Lucy has captured this wonderfully. Every time you look at the painting, you discover something new – you truly get a sense of the magic of Ragdale Hall, and all there is to see and do when staying with us.”
The watercolour and collage one-of-a-kind original painting uses a mixture of glitters, gold relief and mixed media on handmade Indian ‘Khadi’ paper.
Lucy Loveheart said: “I was truly honoured to be invited to create a painting capturing the magic of Ragdale Hall Spa. From the moment I entered the spa I was completely blown away by the setting, the facilities and the friendliness of the staff. Every aspect of the spa is enchanting and a delight to experience.
“In my painting I have tried to show the elements that make the spa so unique and special from the Candle Pool to the wondrous Rooftop Infinity Pool with its amazing views of the gardens and surrounding countryside. To me Ragdale is a little slice of heaven on earth”.
Lucy trained for six years, first at Ipswich and Norwich Schools of Art and then at the Royal College of Art in London. She draws inspiration from childhood memories, the world of make believe, magic, daydreams and her love of nature. Her other collaborations include Chatsworth House, Blenheim Palace, Kew Gardens, the RHS and Chelsea Flower Show.
