An artist has painted two Suffolk landscapes on pre-decimal coins, as part of her latest collection to celebrate the beauty of miniature.

Yvonne Jack, who works from her home in Essex, recreated John Constable’s Flatford Mill (1816-17) and the Hay Wain (1821).

The artist has completed more than 50 paintings on coins, some of which have been showcased at the Bankside Gallery in London, and each takes a few hours to complete.

Flatford Mill, now managed by the National Trust, is set within the Dedham Vale countryside.

Ms Jack said: “It’s a very enjoyable process, the discipline of painting that small.”

“When I was a child, my mum had this painting of Flatford Mill on our lounge wall and when I look at it, it just takes you back there.”

The hamlet of Flatford was also the location of John Constable’s painting the Hay Wain depicting the River Stour.

Other highlights from Ms Jack’s project include the Houses of Parliament, which was exhibited at the Royal Miniature Society Annual Exhibition last year.

The artist, who lives in Thundersley, is currently planning her entry for this year’s exhibition.

She said: “I’m going to enter the Mona Lisa, Joseph Mallord William Turner’s The Fighting Temeraire, Tate St Ives and a pocket-size The Great Wave Off Kanagawa.

“For the fifth one, I’m not sure what I’m going to do yet but I’m thinking possibly a portrait of someone.”
