About theinkybean

Sales 1,206
On Etsy since 2009

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.

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