Etsy Shop Name

A bit about my product range
I’ve always loved to draw. What started off on paper has developed into anything that my coloured pencils will show up on – tree trunks, branches, decking and even furniture. I particularly love giving scrap wood a new purpose.

I started an Etsy shop because…
I have too many wooden creations and drawings and I need to get rid of them somehow!

I feel inspired by…
Nature, particularly animals. I work as an ecologist so I’m constantly astounded by the natural world. Badgers causing chaos with intricate tunnel networks under car parks, elusive snakes and the secret life of invertebrates in our rivers and streams makes me want to draw people’s attention to the wonders going on under our noses.

When I’m making, I like to listen to…
Folk music. I play in a folk band, so I like to keep inspired by listening to other folk artists. I also love watching dramas and comedies as I draw – Green Wing is my absolute fave!

My favourite product to make is…
I love doing painting commissions for people. It’s usually to capture a special moment, favourite animal or much loved pet which makes it all the more unique. Having someone else’s input brings new ideas into my work that I often adopt in later pieces.

My plans for the future are…
Keep on doing the same! And hopefully get a dog!
