This is a custom piece I had done for my mom. It is stunning! I love the mix of her drawing and the quilled paper. Mary had great communication in order to get this picture just right. I don't know how to post a final picture to my review. I love the colors and her attention to detail. I'm looking forward to giving it as a Christmas gift.

About

I'VE ALWAYS LOVED TO DRAW, AND I ALSO HAVE A FASCINATION WITH PAPER ART...

One day, I decided to have a go at putting the two together. I searched the internet for some ideas and that's how I stumbled upon 'Quilling'. I couldn't believe what I was seeing was actually made from strips of paper - flowers, jewellery, figurines, even lampstands - and how intricate and detailed they were. I needed something that I could add to my pencil drawings to make them that little bit different and quilling was just what I was looking for. After looking into this artform further, I was lucky enough to find a brilliant quilling tutor who just happened to live locally, and from then on I've been hooked.

(Quilling is a form of paper filigree which involves the use of paper strips which are rolled, shaped and pinched, then glued together to create decorative designs. The paper can be manipulated to create shapes which make up designs to decorate pictures, greeting cards and boxes and to make quilled jewellery.)

I also like to use other types of paper art in my work where quilling would not have the same effect, and they also mix together well to get the result I'm looking for.

On the drawing side of things, I love to draw anything relating to children, animals and all things old-fashioned (or should I say 'vintage'). Old fashioned toys, fashion, even the way they drew hairstyles years ago - I love all those things and try to reflect that in most of my work.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalised orders

You can choose the colours of the quilled paper and other handmade details on most (or where it is added) of my pictures. As it would be a custom order, it would take me approximately 4-5 days to get your picture ready for posting, then the appropriate postage times for where you are. (Please refer to Shipping Policies). Please contact me with your requirements. You can choose any colour combination, or we can discuss what colours would suit best. Feel free to contact me for any additional requirements ie: personalisation, names, dates etc.
