I live in Northolt, England and have been making bespoke cards, using designs painted on acetate, since 2005.
I particularly enjoy Celtic designs as they are quite challenging. As painting on acetate involves glass paints – painting glass seemed the next logical step. A lot of the glassware comes from Charity Shops or charity stalls at fairs, which is a nice way of recycling the items.
To make the roundels or sun catchers, I lead the glass blanks and solder where necessary then outline and paint the designs. Using glass as a medium has led to making jewellery with glass beads and cabochons…..the variety of items increases…and then there is the decoupage...
Most of my designs have been inspired by Celtic Art notably The Book Of Kells and tattoo art; inspiration has also come from fantasy films such as the Lord of The Rings. Although recently popular cartoon characters and favourite bands have made an appearance!
Each item is hand painted or crafted so is unique. All items can be personalised and made to order. Do have a browse and I hope that you find something you love.
