About

A bit about me...

Howzit ...My name is Mary-Anne. I'm a Scouse-African Artist.
I was born in the late 1960s in Cape Town, South Africa, the youngest of 3 Children. I ran around bare foot and fancy free with a great appreciation of our wonderful South African Wild life, Fauna and Flora, loved Hiking ,catching tadpoles wave skiing and generally having fun outdoors.

I've loved to draw from an early age, I took art in high school and went in to study Graphic Design and Advertising in College. From there I worked for a couple of years in Retail and corporate Advertising. I met and married my husband Ashley in August 1992 and moved to Liverpool my Art Career was put on hold.

Although over the years I entered a couple of Art competitions along the way and received a Highly Commended Award for wildlife piece, in the year 2000 by Wildlife Artist Roy Chaffin.

In 2001 after watching a demonstration using glass paints ,did i start painting my own designs with glass paints on acetate and sold some cards that I had made at a local school fair. I then went on to have my sons in 2002 and 2004, my art was put on hold again.

At Christmas 2004 I had my first fair where I successfully sold my glass painted greeting cards, Butterfly and Angel magnet.

I was hooked, I started drawing and painting again in my spare time for family and friends. In 2011 I started teaching and demonstrating art in my children's primary school on a voluntary basis as well as running an art club for children, which I found very rewarding.

I opened my Etsy shop in late 2013 as hobby, as it seemed like a progression from craft fairs and a little bit more manageable with 3 children. I came up with the name for my shop, as I love to create beautiful art but I also like to design with findings, beads and acetate.

After doing a couple of bigger art fairs and talking with other creatives. I realized that I should branch out into making cards and prints from my artwork thus giving a more affordable option. I manage to keep my printing costs low by printing myself with High quality paper and Inks.

I am always happy to take custom orders. Please feel free to converse me, I would Love To Here From You
Thanks For visiting my Shop, Mary-Anne x
