Beach walks have turned into my art business, how lucky am I, more importantly how lucky is my dog!?

While walking along the local beach when I was living in the State of Qatar in 2008, my husband Steve and I found one very poorly, abandoned dog. We rescued her, took her home, nursed her back to heath and called her Fannie. On many visits back to that same beach to walk Fannie I started to collect some of the exotic shells washed up on the Arabian Gulf.
Our holidays to beautiful places such as, Thailand, Vietnam, Oman and the Maldives saw my collection grow and grow.

We are now living back in the South West of the UK and now my shell collection is too, I have set about painting the lot one by one!!

Since we live on the UK coastline I am lucky to still be able to continue collecting local shells and equally interesting floatsam & jetsam that washes up on the shoreline. Fannie is pretty happy too :o)
