Story of Deer Spirit Studio: Art and Vintage

I started creating art as a child and have never stopped. My Grandmother and both her parents were artists so my creativity was always encouraged. In 2006 I started selling my artwork online (taking a break from Etsy for a number of years due to other commitments until recently).

Working in a variety of mediums and subjects has always been my style as it was for my Grandmother. My inspiration comes from everywhere and sometimes when least expected. Like waking up in the middle of the night with an idea! My artwork can range from dark and spooky to fun and whimsical.

Also I have a large collection of vintage items, most that have been passed down to me from my family (that artist Grandmother again). I was always taught to appreciate "old things" and developed a love for all things antique and vintage. I have come to realize I just have too much and decided to share with others who love "old things" by including them in my shop. I rather see them used and appreciated them sitting packed away in a box. On occasion I will breath new life into those vintage items that just seem to be unloved by upcycling into a new product that hopefully will be used and appreciated for more generations.

My shop name comes from a comment a friend made after listening to all my deer stories. We always have deer hanging around in our yard. They come right up to my back door and seem to listen to me when I talk to them. I looked outside one day and there sniffing around in the grass all in a group were my two dogs, my cat, and a deer! My friend said deer must be your spirit animal so my shop name was born.
