About

Escaping the classroom and doing what I love best, drawing, painting and printmaking.

Art has the ability to transport you into another frame of mind, and I am passionate about creating work that I enjoy making, leaving my mark for others to enjoy is very rewarding. I may not be selling my work for thousands of dollars, but knowing someone in Australia, Hong Kong, the USA etc has a piece of mine hanging in their home makes you want to pat yourself on the back! My unique hand drawn fingerprint guest books have been invited to attend hundreds of weddings which is quite a special feeling.

Everything I create is a labour of love, all hand made, often with hours of intense mark making involved, all completely unique and original. I am proud of my work and hope it will continue to travel the world into others homes. I am always willing to capture other people ideas and special customisations to make each piece truly special, whether it be a pet portrait or wedding tree.

I was one of those kids that "hung-out" in the art room, skipping french class or study time to sit on the art room floor out of sight of the teachers staffroom. After having 5 years of "playing with arty stuff" at university and qualifying as an Art teacher, I was employed by my high school art teacher!!!

I loved teaching art to high school teens both in the UK and Bermuda, the creativity, the aggro, the sarcasm, the relationship woes, the feuds, never a day the same, never a child the same. My classroom is my world, my domain, shut the door and let the magic begin. There is something about the art room, the smell, the mess, the freedom to move, to talk, to share visually that allows a different atmosphere, a different learning to occur.

I started my "year off" from the classroom in 2007 after a near death illness and decided to move back to Europe and spend some quality time with my family and baby boy in Spain……….I am still having my "year off" and being a practising artist.

    I've been a doodler all my life. I could always be found in the school art room. Going on to a BA Fine Art degree and then to train and become a secondary school Art teacher all seemed natural.

My name is Bianca and I am an artist/printmaker/teacher living in Spain.
A trained artist and art teacher, I am currently enjoying some time away from the classroom and school paperwork to take in the Spanish light and pace of life to be creative again.

I'm offering my original hand drawn fingerprint guest books, mono-prints, paintings and jewelry for sale. I love custom orders and work closely with anyone to create a piece of art that fulfils their ideas and wishes.

Just contact me to discuss any ideas.

Please note ** All CUSTOM order fingerprint guestbooks & paintings ordered currently take between 2-3 weeks to create plus shipping time.**

Thank you for looking,

Refunds and Exchanges
All my artwork is 100% handmade and all inks and paint handmixed, some subtle variations do occur within the print or painting. My photographs try to reflect the true nature of the piece and the colors I see, please remember your color monitor calibration may be different to mine, so slight color differences might occur.

I pack and ship as safely and carefully as I can. Larger art items will be sent in a poster tube due to their size or post office shipping requirements.

Returns will be accepted only on undamaged artwork that are unopened in their original clear plastic packaging. All pieces should be returned undamaged, and then refund will be forwarded.

Custom work will need to be proofed via email pic by customer before posting as returns are not accepted on non-damaged customized items.

Damaged goods will require photos of damage.

Shipping costs on returns are the responsibility of the buyer please ensure you have proof of postage in case of lost mail.

I will do my best to resolve any issues on a case by case basis.

I am human, I make all my work with my two bare hands, sometimes things don't always work out but I always hold my hands up if I make a mistake.
