My store holds just a selection of the arts and crafts I love to produce. Every item is an original piece, and although similar paintings may be produced they will never be exactly the same.  Neither will my cards or pictures be printed or duplicated, each one is a small but original piece of art. My greetings cards are mainly watercolour and pen paintings, often with a whimsical feel. They are not intended to be an accurate representation of the animal or flower. The encaustic art is made by painting with melted wax on the base of an  iron as a replacement for paint and brush. These paintings are abstract and often contain surprise elements depending on which way round you hang them. There is rarely a definative top and bottom. I hope you enjoy browsing and buying my original artwork. I hope to include some craft supplies and kits later on.

Purple shell

An A5 encaustic art picture,which I think looks like beautiful seashells.

The painting is ready for framing with or without a mount.
Each painting is unique and cannot be duplicated , although similar designs can be produced.
The paintings are made by applying encaustic wax to the base of an encaustic iron, and then using the base, nose and sides if the iron to produce very unique works of art.

To protect your painting, it should be framed behind glass, or it can be sealed with a spray fixative, which then allows all the textures to be seen if framed without glass. Full instructions come with each painting.
I have been working with encaustic art for many years and love how every painting gives you a surprise,  and how different people see different things in them. There is no right way to hang them as some people see different images from different perspectives,so choose the one that appeals most to you. You can always turn it around every so often for a new perspective.

Paintings will be supplied in a cellophane wrapper and cardboard outer to prevent damage in transit.

I am an artist/craftsperson, who loves trying new things. I have been crafting since i was a young child, taught by my grandmother who loved creating with clothes pegs and lolly sticks and lots of cardboard rolls.

She would also cut me dress patterns from newspaper, both for my dolls and myself. She was an amazing seamstress and creator and I learnt a lot from her.

I also facilitate workshops on a whole range of crafts and art. I Iove papercrafts, particularly card making and scrapbooking, using a variety of methods, including stamping and die cutting as well as my watercolour and pen paintings.

I also love most needlecrafts and more unusual things like my encaustic art. I learnt many years ago but have only recently produced some items for sale. At the moment, they are quite small paintings, but I hoe to experiment with some larger ones soon.

I hope you enjoy choosing my original items. No two are ever the same.
