About

How it all started...

I was working as a waitress and doing some painting on the side after years of curiosity in the arts. I was always a creative child, with drawing and doodling, but it wasn't until I was out of school that I decided to try my hand at oil painting. From the first time I picked up the brush, I was hooked! Living in a small town, the opportunity to take art courses or classes was not really an option, and learning from reading books about somebody else's techniques was not my thing. So I taught myself, through trial and error, finding out what worked ..and what didn't... improving my skills along the way. After painting for 10 years, I was also interested in the art of stained glass, a half hour crash course,with the introduction of how to make a suncatcher and away I went, again through practice , I honed my skills. I use my artistic background to make many of my own designs, and together, it works! I do dabble a bit with fibre arts and love mohair teddies, when time allows, I like to work in this medium as well. Variety is the spice of life I say and this is my approach on crafting as well.

    I enjoy what I do and hope it shows in my work! I recently closed my gift shop in favour of selling exclusively online. My former gift shop is presently being converted to a beautiful creative space which I look forward to using in the spring of 2018

DAMAGED GOODS
I pack my items carefully to avoid breakage, but I have no control over how parcels are handled by the postal system, therefore damage can occur, but is extremely rare. In the unlikely event of damage during shipping, please let me know WITHIN 2 DAYS of recieving your parcel. I would ask you to send me pictures of the packaging and piece and details on what is damaged if possible. I will replace your damaged item free of charge,however I do require the damaged piece to be returned if the piece can be repaired or salvaged. New shipping fees on the return from my part will not apply.
I will also offset your return shipping fees .Upgrading the shipping to include insurance and tracking WILL NOT insure an item against damage or breakage.Insurance unfortunately only covers loss of a parcel.Again completely out of my control.

In 14 years , I have never lost a parcel , and I have shipped several hundreds from my brick and mortar shop in Cape Breton ,Nova Scotia ,Canada. However, the buyer assumes the responsibility in the event that a parcel is temporarily lost if he/she did not indicate that he/she preferred trackable shipping on the parcel.

I will do my best to accomodate, but have no control over the package after it leaves my studio.

CUSTOM ORDERS
Custom orders are my specialty! I am always open to hearing your ideas on projects and/or different color options.
WHOLESALE
If you have a storefront and would be interested in carrying my products, please message me :0)
CARE AND INSTALLATION OF YOUR SUNCATCHERS
Please assure that you check your suction cups frequently, if they become discolored and yellow over time, replace with another quality suction cup ( not the horrible dollar store ones) I recommend replacing once a year.Make sure that you add a little water to the inside of the cup before adhering to the window, this results in a more secure suction.Avoid placing suncatchers on windows that are open and shut frequently, the vibrations could send your piece crashing to the floor.Hanging on doors or patio doors not recommended.
DO NOT USE Windex or any ammonia based window cleaner to clean your stained glass piece, the ammonia will have a negative reaction with the solder(corrosion) and it will ruin the look of the seams. Use a dry cloth for regular dusting, and polishing can be done with a high quality car wax and soft cloths. Apply wax , let dry to a haze and buff to a shine.
