About

I am a self taught artist and have been into many forms of art since childhood. I have always had the ability to draw animals and birds. Although only recently discovering the joy of sculpting in porcelain clay, as a child I sculptured birds and animals from air dry clay, for many years my artistic abilities were put on 'the back burner' while I raised a family and worked full time, only discovering I still had my sculpting talent after buying a block of porcelain clay in 2005 'just for something to do'.

About

I am a self taught artist and have been into many forms of art since childhood. I have always had the ability to draw animals and birds. Although only recently discovering the joy of sculpting in porcelain clay, as a child I sculptured birds and animals from air dry clay, for many years my artistic abilities were put on 'the back burner' while I raised a family and worked full time, only discovering I still had my sculpting talent after buying a block of porcelain clay in 2005 'just for something to do'.

After creating a menagerie of birds and animals including owls, kookaburras, dogs and ponies my family convinced me to buy a kiln, which I did and consider it the best purchase I ever made, and after discovering my art was appealing to others I began sculpting full time.

The nature of my work lies with the whimsical and the figurative. I only create original sculptures so that each collector has the only 'one of its kind'. My sculptures may follow a theme but no two are ever identical.
Nothing pleases me more than when I see someone look at my work and smile.

NB: People often ask how to pronounce my surname, it's pronounced Ray (the e is silent)
I have two other Etsy shops, you can find adult colouring pages at: www.etsy.com/shop/artwethereyet and downloadable prints of my drawings and paintings at: www.etsy.com/shop/anitareayprints :)
