About

Welcome to Beauty Watcher!
Home of Star Ornament muses, small round creatures and soon little charms.
Even as a child I made stuff, could not help myself. In my genetic code, I think. My lamps and furniture are all painted and even my clothes! Yikes. See what I mean? Even did my washer and dryer once.
I graduated from College with a Bachelors in Applied Art. That means that the art has to be useful, like a pretty teapot. I paint and decorate. I also had a degree in Interior Design and taught at a community college.

►WHAT IS MY MAIN INSPIRATION?
I adore stories and myths, and collect them as a hobby. It was natural they would work their way into my art.

►WHERE AM I FROM?
OK, I live in Florida but was born in Iowa and have lived in Oregon, Texas, California and Ohio. I live not far from…

►WHERE AM I FROM?
OK, I live in Florida but was born in Iowa and have lived in Oregon, Texas, California and Ohio. I live not far from Ringling's Museum and house. The circus atmosphere definitely influences me to add more and more details to my art. My Dad was Irish and my Mom from Peru—need I say more?

►WHAT DO I MAKE?
I have star ornaments, pendants, charms and small figurines

►WHY BEAUTY WATCHER?
This is a name that was gifted to me during a ceremony. I thought it might add a bit of sublime magic to my shop.

►WHAT IS YOUR PROCESS FOR MAKING ART?
I use the Shamanic journeying process to give me direction on new projects. I have been initiated as a Shamanic Healing Practitioner and use those tools and the advise of my allies to guide me.

►WHAT MAKES MY STUFF UNIQUE?
Each piece is a work of art that I have created, sometimes on a bigger painting and then reduced to fit the small scale of stars and balls.

►WHAT OTHER PROJECTS HAVE YOU DONE?
I have painted designs on drums, illustrated a few books, did several hundred acrylic paintings of Gods and Goddesses and designed the interior for a small temple. Google: mairyann Wrentmore and you will see shows that I have been in and some awards.

►DO YOU GIFT WRAP? SPECIAL ORDERS?
Each item comes wrapped in paper. I try to add something extra it may be a little button, or magnet—a tiny surprise. **Shipping is FAST, in two weekdays from receiving payment. Just contact me through ETSY or beautywatcher [!at] live.comfor special orders.
