Love Hug by Doug Hyde

From cyclists to sun worshippers, beaches to board games, Doug’s engaging style is at once innocent, whimsical, happy and optimistic.

Working from his rural home in the Cotswolds, Doug creates work that transcends boundaries of age, gender and culture.

Since winning the Fine Art Trade Guild’s Artist of the Year award in 2004 Doug has been featured on national and international television, including BBC news, Channel 4 and local TV and radio.

Doug is also passionate about the charitable causes he supports.

He has partnered with the NSPCC, Children in Need, Look Good…Feel Better, a charity that helps female cancer patients to combat side-effects of their illness, and Families in Need, which helps place children in family homes throughout the West Country.
