Welcome to the online home of Roses & Castles.

"Roses and Castles" is the name commonly given to the traditional folk art painting of canal boats.  This site showcases some of the traditional and modern paintings of Lisa Marie Trump, who combines the traditional painting styles of Roses & Castles with modern touches to create something original and bespoke.  Lisa paints traditional canalware such as Buckby cans, cratch boards and door panels as well as painting murals and decorative pieces directly onto boats.  Additionally Lisa paints watercolour canal scenes and can paint a picture of your boat in your favourite stretch of the inland waterways.

Much of her work can be carried out from her home studio aboard her own narrowboat, or she can travel to most areas of the UK to paint murals and motifs onto your boat.

Please contact Lisa at RosesCastles@hotmail.co.uk if you would like to discuss commissioning her to paint for you.
