DeidreDreams' Profile

About

Hi, my name is Deidre and I welcome you to my little dream world!
I am a polymer clay and fiber artist, and my original work comes both in the form of clay paintings and wearable art jewelry and accessories.
With the help of photography I also offer depictions of my original art as illustrations in other forms such as fine art prints, greeting cards, tote bags, throw pillowcases and mugs.
I make all kinds of fiber art, jewelry and accessories: needle felted pictures, crocheted chokers, cuffs, art yarn necklaces, headdresses, and whatever else strikes my fancy. I combine most of it with my polymer clay jewels.

* Next to that, I also have a Fiber Art shop here on Etsy, which can be found here: www.etsy.com/shop/DeidreDreamsFiber
and a hand painted patina jewelry shop: www.etsy.com/shop/PatinaRainbow…

My work is based on the little stories in my head and are illustrations as such. They are magical, fairy tale, fantasy and pagan inspired.
I love nothing more than people connecting to the stories, characters and atmospheres in my work.

I have quite a colourful personality myself, which I pass on to my work and my characters.
Colour is what I love most in and about life. I am fascinated by how different colours can tell a character's story and give creatively different energies in pieces.
And, when it comes to my clay work, I live for the details and the texture that can be given to sculpted work, how layers can give depth and make pieces a lively painting.

Check back regularly for new art!

Making art with polymer clay and fiber allows me to express the whole range of my tastes and my personality, from the romantic and dreamy to the weird and quirky. From the bright cheery colorful fairy side to the darker gothic side.
I love all kinds of fairy tales and fantastic stories, myths and legends and I tend to get lost in them. I love everything from the Disney Classics, Fern Gully, and the Flower Fairies from Cicely Mary Barker to Nightmare Before Christmas, The Corpse Bride and The Crow.
They are all dream worlds to me, they are all part of the fairy tale world in my head.
I love sculpting scenes that would usually be told in drawings or paintings. That's what my art is to me: Illustrations of a story.

Things that inspire me are traveling, books, movies, legends, myths, the circus, walking along the beach or in the woods, and many more things.
I love traveling! Especially to countries such as Ireland, Scotland and Norway with such rich, mystical history, you can just feel it in the air.
My whole life I've only ever been able to get lost in books and movies and dream about how the stories would go on.
Creating my art is the only thing I've ever discovered that gives me that same feeling.

I live in a tiny, small town in the South of the Netherlands in between rolling hills and meadows, where the wind always blows in new energy. I live there together with my wonderful, supportive and creative dude, and our two very cuddly cats who rule the house (except for my workspace) and only allow us to live with them because we feed them and cuddle them whenever they want to be cuddled (which is pretty much all the time).

I hope you see something you like in my little shop. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask me. If you'd like to request a custom item, please do, I love a challenge! Please feel free to check out my sold items, too. I'll never make the exact same object twice (then you know what you have, is always unique), but I can definitely make something similar to what you've seen.

And, if you want, come have a chat with me on Facebook!
