Elspeth Slayter Recevik's Profile
Elspeth Slayter Recevik is an Associate Professor of Social Work teaching courses on statistics, research methods and policy analysis - but at night she transforms into a passionate crafter!
An avid valentine-maker since childhood, she opened Valentique (valentine + antique) in response to the lack of non-red, non-pink and non-lacey valentines on the market. Providing non-traditional and quirky up-cycled valentines, Valentique draws inspiration from castaway and/or unexpected objects to create unusual valentine object d'art with good design.
After meeting her husband, Murat Recevik, a painter, printer and assemblage artist (as well as Valentique consultant), she became fascinated by the possibilities of re-purposing vintage and forgotten items into unique, 3D, up-cycled valentine assemblage shadow boxes…
