Broke in pieces upon taking out of package


Christie responded on Jun 1, 2018

I am sorry to hear that your feeder was broken! I always offer free replacement of defective products. I have sent out a new feeder top upon reading this. You should be receiving it this weekend.

I'm excited to have a fine art prints available for my newest pointillism painting Octopuzzled. Available in 8x8" or 13x13" prints. Each one is so detailed you can see the texture of the canvas and paint! Each print is signed and numbered.
Feeling so inspired lately I've been making a new illustration almost every few days! There are more prints to be added to my shop so keep an eye out. I love suggestions too, so feel free to message me with an idea!
I was so inspired by all the art at a recent show that I started this octopus sketch there. It easily became one of my favorite pointallism pieces ever.
See how it turned out - this Pacific Octopus is up now in my etsy shop! Comments encouraged!

Illustrations, photographs & handmade wonders to inspire and enjoy.

I have always been in love with fantasy, animals, nature and especially the sea. I spent much of my time exploring the woods and creeks around my house, catching and studying anything I could. Naturally, my art reflects those inspirations.
A great deal of my ideas come from having a specific need and not being able to find exactly what I was looking for. I once bought a hummingbird feeder for my patio only to come home to find nectar all over the place. Inspired to create a solution, I designed a feeder to stake into my plants.
Creating new things has always been a passion. Reusing anything in a new way gives it a second life and prevents one more thing from ending up in a landfill.
As for my art, it is simply a way of appreciating this amazing planet we live on and the diverse creatures living with us. I hope it inspires people to get out there and experience it.
