Orders can still be placed during this period but will only be despatched on 05/09/2022. We expect a great deal of disruption to deliveries over the next few weeks because of the Bank Holiday, Postal strikes and the backlog that these will create. In a bid to avoid customer goods sitting in depots, we have opted to not despatch orders over the week encompassing the Bank Holiday Monday and the strikes on 26th and 31st August. Thank you.

About Us

Cut Loose Art are Peter Taylor Ward and Kim Curtis.

We started our market stall selling our paintings, drawings and hand-painted furniture in 1996. Then, in 2008, we had the brainwave of using our experience to start selling art materials to other creatives. The business grew and grew and slowly there was no time for painting and drawing and all the things that we loved.

This just wouldn’t do! So, we’re kicking off our Sunday shoes, pulling up from our knees and we’re getting ready to cut loose. We’re going back to what we know and do best!

Between us, we cover numerous styles and genres and paint on everything from paper to wardrobes. Ok – everything that is derived from a tree!

We hope you enjoy browsing our work and following our blog as we let our creativity run wild!


Like a lot of people, we feel there are way too many good pieces of furniture being binned. And why are they being binned? Simply that they look a bit tired, scuffed or dated. But just a bit of TLC would give them a new lease of life.  So, we take old, soon-to-be-trashed furniture and make them desirable again. Now, as much as I would like to say this is done from a purely eco-friendly stand point, the truth is we simply like the process of transforming a thing into something that we feel is better! We like beautiful things and making things beautiful.

Original Paintings & Drawings

We both studied Illustration. Peter majored in Technical and Architectural Drawing whilst I concentrated on character-based book and media stuff. On Cut Loose Art, you will still see much of this in our work. But you will also find landscapes, figurative work, botanical illustration and still lifes. You will find works in oil, pen, watercolour, charcoal, acrylic, gouache, inks and pencil and even the occasional collage or 3-dimensional piece. We’re nothing if not diverse!

Printed Items

Our printed items include wall plaques, large printed canvases, ornaments & soft furnishings. All of these feature reproductions of our original artwork or original drawings that have been digitally coloured or had type added.
