Local artist teams up with iconic Yorkshire bakery

A Yorkshire artist who shot to fame earlier after her sketch of the Queen and Paddington Bear went viral, has put the final touches to a special collaboration with a Yorkshire bakery

Creating some extra special gifts in the run up to Christmas, Eleanor Tomlinson has created three bespoke illustrations for the Lottie Shaw’s, which celebrate some of life’s little moments including dog walking, gardening and cycling. Each illustration appears on a sleeve which wraps around a treat tin, as well as on a collectable print inside. 

The tins contain a selection of baked treats, including award-winning Yorkshire parkin biscuits, millionaire shortbread and flapjacks.

Eleanor said: “I started working on this project before Her Majesty sadly passed away, and I’m delighted to have finally put the finishing touches to this exciting collaboration. 

“Lottie Shaw’s and I both embrace our Yorkshire heritage and I’m so pleased that we’re working together and hope the range will be well received from people in Yorkshire and even further afield.” 

Founded in 1912 by Lottie’s Great Aunts in their village bakery, their recipes have been passed down through the generations and now create products based on those original recipes using the finest ingredients from local producers where possible.  

Founder Charlotte Shaw added: “This collaboration is a celebration of Yorkshire. It’s also a nod to those moments when you sit down with a cuppa and a special treat and we’re so happy that Eleanor is on board and sharing her amazing talents with our brand. We can’t wait to see where this collaboration might go next.”
