About AnimalGlassDesigns

Sales 118
On Etsy since 2012

Since childhood I've loved all crafts, painting animals is down to my cats!

Annabel is a British artist, based in Devon in the UK.

'With a love of wildlife and wanting to create something functional as a keepsake of my two cats, my idea for animals on glass was born.' Her artwork is often described as beautiful and she has a moorland collection in Widecombe in the Moor National Trust gallery in Devon and glass paintings all over the world thanks to the internet!

Annabel also creates digital designs from her original paintings. These have proved popular and due to thumb arthritis she is increasing the range of printed products, see website for info.
All hand painted items are original works of art, so no two will be identical. They are painted using non toxic glass paint and glassware can be washed.

    Fellow Etys seller Janners Mugs heat presses my designs onto wood coasters for me. I got to know Janners via the Etsy Devon Team and as I felt it was important to have any printed products locally made, he was the ideal partner.
