Oberonswood's Profile

About

Does anyone read this bit?
Okay, for those who may have fallen down a rabbit hole and ended up in Oberon's Wood, then I suppose that I should take the time to bore you all with my story...it shouldn't take that long...
It was a dark and stormy night...;o)

I am an artist, sculptor, creator, sad poet and wanderer through the woods. (Oh that sounds SO pretentious doesn't it?)
I'm also a hopeless romantic and love musty old books and ephemera (which is taking over my home).
I am also a vintage fabric and lace hoarder (I take after my Nan so I blame her :o) ) my excuse is that I quilt...if you quilt you will understand about the fabric...

I prefer to live a life imbued with magic and what could be more magical than shrinking the 'big' world down to a doll or faerie size?…

As a child I dreamed that I would be able to shrink small enough to fit inside my Grandmother's dollshouse so that I could live in it...of course I don't know how long I would have lasted without any real food but you don't think about those things when you are very young and daydreaming.
I still play with that awkward, clunky old house and daydream...

I collect and make small scale miniatures and larger Art Dolls...mostly of a fantasy theme...these are all one-of-a-kind as I don't like to make "mass-produced" things.
I also like to make pretty miniature accessories for dolls and faeries, just because I might one day need them myself, should I shrink small enough ;o)

I paint in many mediums and styles but my favourite images are my Faeries, as they make me happy just to look at them. :o)
Because I am also a painter, I do not spend all of my time devoted to playing with dolly things...I swap from sculpting, to painting, to dolls throughout the year, and so do not make lots of any one type of thing.

When I work I am surrounded by magic and I like to pass this on into the thing that I am creating...I hope that you can feel the magic within you :o)

Oberon's Wood is an actual real place which we have created here in the mountains of Snowdonia in North Wales, it may not be big but it is certainly magical, sometimes it feels like you are stepping into another world...especially if you are a daydreamer :o)

I offer a lay-away plan for any item over £75.00, so if you see something in my store which speaks to you then it can be put aside for you, please see my policies page for more information :o)

Thank you for visiting Oberon's Wood, I look forward to seeing you again when you pass this way...or fall down a rabbit hole...I'm always available for a spot of tea! ;o)
