Yesterday I was cutting a new paper cut, Barn Owl. Here she is, spreading her wings. One of my favourite animals, I have several barn owl themed products in my shop, including notebooks and writing paper.

About

Forest and Fairytale inspired art and craft

I started my Etsy shop six years ago but have been making arts and crafts since I was very young. I have really enjoyed seeing my little shop change and grow and many happy customers along the way. Art and creating is my way of life, it is totally consuming, not always easy but wholly rewarding in the end. I work in many mediums, although recently paper cutting has won my heart in many ways. Creating magical moments that you can enjoy in the form of paper cut lighting, framed pieces of art or greetings cards feels wonderful to me.

I must confess that I am complete child at heart and I get very excited about new mediums. I am self-taught in some areas (painting, felting, carving, paper-cutting) and trained in others (ceramics, silversmithing) but my main purpose is to give the medium I am working with, my love and 100% focus. The end result of which are the products in my shop, made for you to look, touch, wear, cherish - or to give away as a lovingly handmade gift.

Whenever I get a return customer or a wonderful note from a happy person enjoying the results of my craft, my heart sings a little. Even though Etsy is an online shop, it is lovely to remember that there is a real person here making the product for you and that there is a real person there receiving it. In itself that is a lovely story, which makes my day worthwhile and more.
