Art & Handcrafted Keepsakes…
Coming from a creative family I spent my early years watching everyone around me integrating their creativity into their everyday lives. I've been drawing since I could hold a pencil and have always loved experimenting with art. As an adult I began to experiment with painting on salvaged wood and when I had my first son I decided to try my hand at selling my work and Jetta's Nest was born (named after my much loved pet rat, Jetta and her repurposed nest who was my companion many years ago).
I am very lucky to live on a beautiful property with my husband, 3 children, 18 chickens and 2 dogs. We are close to the beach and close to the bush so enjoy the best of both worlds.
I put so much of myself into each of my pieces and my hope is that they are treasured as keepsakes and passed down through families to be treasured once again by a new generation.
Each bespoke piece is carefully created by me using salvaged and repurposed timbers and finished with individually illustrated and painted details making each item one of a kind. By giving new life to discarded timber pieces I create a way of celebrating the life of the trees that surround us and provide us with so much.
My illustrations and artworks come from my heart and are inspired by glimpses of beauty in my everyday life.
By making things, I share a little something of myself with those who wear, use and enjoy my work, pieces to treasure and to remind us of the little things that are so sweet.
