Canterbury Cathedral 
Cows and Cathedrals  
Just a stones throw away from the impressive Canterbury Cathedral sits a gallery full of unique artwork from top British creatives. And now, some Cows!  
The Lauren's Cows herd have taken up residence in Stark Gallery in the beautiful city of Canterbury.  
You can't compare an image on a computer screen to an actual painting in the flesh which is why we are so excited to be the featured artist at Stark Gallery this Summer. Read more about the exhibition here... 
 
The Cows of The Castle 
We all know that the queen loves her Corgis and is a very fond of horses, but did you know she also loves her Cows? That's right! Although we are used to seeing our monarch in her finery, opening hospitals, hosting foreign ambassadors and waving from her Bently State Limousin, Queen Elizabeth likes nothing more than wandering her 50,000-acre estate in the Scottish Highlands, watching an episode of Countryfile and of course, tending to her cows.

'When life seems one too many for you, Go and look at a cow...' 
 
This poem was sent to me by a follower on the Lauren's Cows Facebook page (if you're not following yet then you must!) and it may be my favourite poem ever. It was published in The Old Farmer's Almanac back in 1936 and is simply wonderful! I urge you to spare a minute to read it because will brighten your day! 
'Found You!' Cow Painting by Lauren Terry

Ode to A Cow 

Let's paint the day Purple! 
It's the 26th March which means the international day for epilepsy also known as Purple Day. On this day we all come together to raise awareness of this condition and help make a difference to the lives of people affected by epilepsy. People such as myself. 
That's right I have epilepsy. It's not something I usually talk about as I think there's quite alot of fear around the word 'epilepsy'. It can feel as if people are watching you out of the corner of their eye just waiting for you to fall over! However the only way to help people understand the condition is for epileptics to tell their stories and help remove some of those stigmas associated with the condition. So as it's Purple Day, I am opening up to you all! Here is my story... 
Jersey Cow Painting by Lauren Terry
 
Melody's Story 
 
In September I had the pleasure of visiting a local Jersey Farm in York and spending an afternoon with a lovely herd of milking Jerseys. Since my trip one of Greyleys Jersey Cows has made it into the Lauren's Cows herd, with many more to join in due course. 
As you know, I love to know all about the cows I paint and who knows them better than the people who take care of the cattle every day. So without further ado, here is Melody's Story!

WHO RUNS THE WORLD? GIRLS!! 
 
It's international women's day and to celebrate what is probably the most important event in our calendar, I wanted to share with you the women that inspire me most. There are so many women who have inspired me and shaped the woman that I am today. However there is one lady in particular that I look to in times of uncertainty. So this blog is dedicated to my ultimate female icon. She's a bad ass like no other, a lady of the night, a dead shot with an arrow, an actual Goddess, She's my idol...

"If everyone who'd complimented our beautiful gallery had bought just a card we'd still be open" 
 
This week is no ordinary week! It's Indie Week and that means it's time for 'Just A Card'. 
 
Just a Card campaign is very close to my heart. The whole idea is to encourage people to buy from Designer/Makers and Independent Galleries and Shops rather than heading straight to the big high street names. 
I've been joining in with the Indie Week 'Just a Card' challenges! So let's spread the word that all purchases, even just a card, are vital to the survival of our streets small businesses.
