Divertimenti, the specialist cookshop in London’s Brompton Road, has been spreading festive cheer with its commissioned artwork by one of its customers, Royal Academy trained Anna-Louise Felstead.
Besides hanging in the store’s window, and being sent to customers, the card (and its creation in a time lapse video) is featured on Divertimenti’s website.
On receiving her ‘first Christmas card’ from Divertimenti, tv celebrity Ulrika Jonsson took to social media to share it. This was subsequently re-posted by artist Anna-Louise, whose response was re-posted by Ulrika. “We’ve had lots of nice comments about Anna-Louise’s beautiful painting,” comments Divertimenti’s owner, Ben Phillips.
