About

A few words about the artist

From a very young age, I have engaged with art in some way. My parents were both involved in the world of commercial art and graphic design, and they encouraged me in my early artistic efforts.

In my house growing up, there was never a shortage of books and magazines about artists, and I was lucky to have access to a great variety of professional pens, pencils, paper, and paints. My mother also made sure that I was a regular visitor to the many splendid museums that could be found in the city.

Being surrounded by so much art, it was no surprise when I became an artist myself. I create artwork under the name Durlzy, which has been my nickname since 1993.

There's no set media that I work with, really - I love them all. I experiment daily with different materials and techniques. I'm a great fan of anything handmade, but I'm also skilled in the use of vector drawing programs, and Photoshop. I view the computer as just another tool in my arsenal. I will often use it to enhance a piece that started life as a hand drawn, painted or printed image.

I work alone. Everything here in my Etsy shop is handmade. Whether it's a print, a t-shirt, a painting or a fridge magnet - everything you see is designed and made by me. I create it all, from concept, to finished piece. That in itself adds value to anything you choose to purchase from me here. My goal is to give people the world over a chance to own a piece of original art, something affordable and unique that will also bring a smile to their face. I hope my work brings a smile to your face!
