About

Nature Inspired Art, Ornaments and Jewelry

Inspired by Nature, the Seasons, my garden, flora, fauna, medieval art and iconography, illuminated manuscripts, antique botanicals, folklore and myth. I love to draw, paint and sculpt in miniature...

I've studied Fine Art and Illustration and then worked as a graphic designer while painting in my spare time. I opened my shop as a way to focus and fuel my creativity.

With my nature inspired jewelry I like to think that each little vignette that I carve and sculpt from clay is pulled from the illuminated margins of old manuscripts. Little gold embellished "jewels" to wear and tell a story like an illustrated detail from a book. Every little pictorial sculpture is basically a scene that I've witnessed in my own garden.

Woodland Botanical Icon paintings and jewelry ~ Painting on Capiz Shell ~
With my latest work, the iridescent, sometimes translucent, sometimes reflective effect of the capiz shell 'canvas' is truly one-of-a-kind. Creating small works of art with the mixed media of clay, paint and shell provides the kind of tactility and unique end result that compels me to make more and more. The small paintings in particular, combine my love of art and home decoration with that of seasonal holidays and celebration which is endlessly inspirational. I wish to create many pieces that I hope will serve as keepsakes for years to come.

Having lived and worked for most of my life in the North Eastern United States, I moved to Norfolk, England a few years ago and settled into a 400-year-old-cottage in the English countryside. Subsequently, I've been finding inspiration from Nature and Seasons on either side of the Atlantic.

    My name is Margaret and Gwydion's Garden is my one person shop. I'm responsible for everything from concept to creation, packaging it all up prettily and mailing it out. When not in the studio, I love to be out in nature with my dogs.
