About

Thank you so much for stopping by my store. I'm so excited to share my creations with you.

My shop here on Etsy was born out of my creative dream to share art with others. I spend a lot of my spare time creating various different forms of art, ranging from art quilting, cards,photography, collage items and bedding for my wonderful furry family.

I love to travel and see new places and cultures, experience new surroundings and take that experience with me to infuse it into things I create. I am inspired by so many of the colours, sounds and textures of the world I live in that it's only natural that this evenutally influences what I make.

I am not a professional artist, I simply love to create and have self taught myself many of my hobbies and techniques. I do have fond memories of growing up in a household of women…

I love to travel and see new places and cultures, experience new surroundings and take that experience with me to infuse it into things I create. I am inspired by so many of the colours, sounds and textures of the world I live in that it's only natural that this evenutally influences what I make.

I am not a professional artist, I simply love to create and have self taught myself many of my hobbies and techniques. I do have fond memories of growing up in a household of women who knew how to sew - and my mother and grandmother taught me from an early age how to use a needle and sewing machine. My creative mind was also fed from an early age by a love of reading and stories that saw me constantly imagining and making things. There is rarey a time, even now in my adult life...where I'm not 'thinking' about what to create next. I am constantly inspired by colour and pattern in my everyday life and have a love of fabric and textiles that goes back as far as i can remember.

I currently work as a registered nurse, but my deisgn background originated from my studies in landscape architecture where I was infused with a love of all things creative and how design in every form influences our lives.

I work from home in a tiny studio, closely monitored by my feline and guinea pig friends. They inspire me, relax me and encourage me (and I'm sure sometimes laugh at my madness) and so this is how Studio 4 Paws was born.

I focus on several areas of art, all quite different, and so I often spend my time alternating between various projects. I enjoy the process of creating becuase it gives me time to refocus my mind from the husstle and bussle of my busy world, to a quieter more centred existance - it allows me to find my true self and express it to the world. And that's why I'm here.

I have recently completed some commissioned art quilts, and I'm more than happy to hear from anyone who might want something special created just for them.
I hope you will enjoy looking at my creations and drop by again sometime soon.
