Crafty Boaters

Hello, and welcome to my shop. 

I paint hand-cast art stones, natural rocks, tea light holders, and wooden boxes using vibrant acrylic paints. I use interestingly shaped or rocks with natural patterns and cast my own stones and tea light holders. I love vibrant colours, particularly against dark backgrounds, and I am inspired by Russian lacquer boxes, European folk art, and Northern Indian textiles. Many of these shapes and colours come through in my own artwork. All of this is completed on our lovely Dutch barge Skûtsje, The first Dutch barge on the River Thames at Lechlade-on-Thames.

I am also particularly fond of painting portraits of cats on hand-cast stones, some of which are also for sale in the shop. I can take on commissions for cat stone portraits, which make lovely personalised gifts of artwork. 

I hope you enjoy looking around the shop and that you are inspired by what you see. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you would like more information.
