About

♥ Handmade Means Love, Passion + Creativity // Perfect Imperfections + Variations ♥

As a grandmother to 4 precious little ones, my creative focus is primarily 3D paper art for the home as well as ENCAUSTIC original small paintings, all individually HANDMADE by ME.

From the moment I placed my hot iron with melted wax on paper, I was captivated by its rich texture + luminosity! To be fully appreciated, these paintings need to be seen, touched and handled so you can appreciate and FEEL their texture.

Sometimes recycling used [sometimes vintage] books from thrift stores + other times using acid free card stock, I create 3D paper art featuring my signature butterflies, along with other shapes.

Some of the custom [bespoke] styles close to my heart are the various memorial 3D butterfly pieces, created to help parents have a tangible remembrance of babies that died too soon ~ a tragic experience that my husband and I went through many years ago ~ and these memorial keepsake, personalized creations have become cherished by many.

I always welcome CUSTOM ORDERS for paper creations ~ a number of my most popular creations grew out of the special requests of some of my customers!

I carry a election of made-to-order art boards, tote bags, cushion covers, acrylic art blocks, chiffon scarves + carry-all pouches, all made by my production partners using images of my encaustic art.

I am so very fortunate to be able to do what I love, each and every day, and the very best experience of all since opening my shop in 2009, has been meeting so many wonderful people from all over the world!

+++ With every order, I include a little something extra as a way of showing my appreciation + saying THANK YOU to each fabulous customer +++

Everything is designed, created + made with love in Nova Scotia, Canada

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I love custom orders!! -- MANY 3D Paper Creations [but NOT all] can be personalized depending on the space available + the length of the NAME and/or DATE you want.

I do NOT do *large batches* of handmade CARDS because of the recurring painful tendonitis in my right arm.
