Announcement    ❤ "Where the spirit does not work with the hand there is no art".❤
Leonardo da Vinci

I create every piece by hand in my home studio in Melbourne, Australia.
I love dreaming up new designs all the time.

Please do not hesitate to message me if you have any questions.
I also love receiving pictures and feedback of the clay creations that have been purchased from me. It brings me a lot of joy to see where they are going to live.

I am also focusing on reducing unnecessary packaging materials while still maintaining what is necessary to protect the product.
A huge package for a small product is a waste all around. I believe in friendly packaging using newspapers and shredded papers.
Shipping cost in Australia is expensive and I prefer to keep the package as simple as possible to save you on the shipping.

❤Wishing you peace and health!❤

♥ Handmade Lovelies created with lots of Love ♥

"Where the spirit does not work with the hand there is no art".
Leonardo da Vinci

I grew up in Amsterdam, Holland and we always have been taught to create things at home.
I have always been creative and started making things seriously when I was 9 years old.
I am a self taught person. I do not have a set way of creating.
It often begins with looking what's around me, flicking through old children books, fashion magazines or my inspiration board that I have in my small studio.
Sometimes an idea will come out of this.
Apart from creating clay figures I also enjoy abstract painting with acrylics and water colour.
My inspiration is Matisse and Van Gogh.
I love to work with different kind of mediums such as clay, gemstones, fabric and paints.
I have taken a break of my popular fabric sculptures and picked up my sculpting with natural clay, playing with paints and gemstones.
I have always believed to evolve and try new things all the time.
My work has been featured in a number of books, magazines and blogs around the world.
I am very grateful to find Etsy in 2006, it has given me a lot of exposure and being chosen as a Featured Seller on Etsy in 2010 has given me all the confidence creating new things and test out my new creations.

Big Thank You to Etsy and customers who enjoy and buy my work as much as I do creating them every day with Lots Of Love.
