Kate Dengra's Profile

About

I simply love all things to do with the sea, sand, sun and Flamenco!

I left Scarborough, N Yorks, UK and moved to Spain in 2004 and bought a cave! I spent 9 lovely years in the cave....running it as a B&B with my Mum and making/selling crafts. I met a local Spanish man and we married in 2007 and had a little boy in 2009. At the beginning of 2014 we decided to leave cave life and move to the coast for more opportunities for us as a family (beach! craft markets! work etc!!)

In 2012 I began to paint hand fans and later that year they received the best international promotion when Christina Aguilera used a few of my designs on The Voice. Then weeks later Emilia Clarke was seen using one on the red carpet Broadway. My fans have been seen in various famous places including New York fashion week. I have worked with event planners in Lake Como…

Then weeks later Emilia Clarke was seen using one on the red carpet Broadway. My fans have been seen in various famous places including New York fashion week. I have worked with event planners in Lake Como for grand weddings and in Monaco for spectacular events. Every week I have a new challenge of some sort whether it be a custom bridal fan for a tropical wedding or a bulk order for a corporate event. I love it! I love anything that gives me a challenge.

I supply various shops around the world with my hand fans and I spend most of my days painting them and coming up with new designs

Since I live on the coast I have also started to become more creative using resources I find on the beaches and started a new line of beachfind art. My popular barefoot sandals also compliment this new line. I feel very blessed to be in such a lovely part of Spain and can sit in the sun and be creative and take part in the local art markets.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my shop on Etsy. If there is anything specific you are looking for then convo me and I will see if I can help you.
