Hello Lovely You!
Here's a little about me
Hello and welcome to my website. I'm Debs, a full time artist working from my farm based studio located just a few miles from the picturesque village of Falkland in Fife.
I have always been creative and enjoy working with a wide range of art and creative mediums. The variety of mediums I work in reflect my creative nature.
My need to create shines from me. It makes me happy and I thrive with every piece created. Being self taught and my desire to span a variety of mediums means I don't feel I 'fit' within a specific art category, and so I prefer the term 'Creative Artist' It gives me the freedom to create unrestricted and I'm comfortable with that.
Over the years I have tried to work out what it is that defines me as me, but my mind works like a thousand boxes open all at once, I'm inquisitive, creative, resourceful, ultra organised yet, completely disorganised, happy go lucky just run with it, yet straight down the line aiming for perfection.
The During 2017 I have been working on producing unique ceramic items and a large part of my collections so far are ceramic jewellery based. 2018 is my arty year so look out for more homewares and art joining the collections.
Clay is such a therapeutic medium to work with, I love the transformation from a lump of cold wet clay to a piece of pretty jewellery or giftware The excitement and pride I feel each time I open my kiln has never left, it always feels like a little bit of magic has happened in there.
My inspirations come from the country side around me, I adore the calming, whimsical colours of wild flowers especially against the landscapes surrounding my studio, which is currently beautiful golden barley fields scattered with thistles and magical dandelions. These elements are intertwined in my design process and can been seen in a variety of designs. Wellbeing and mindfulness is particularly important to me and the surrounding peaceful landscape lends it's self well to this. The concept of wellbeing, self love and gratitude has been the focus of my new harmony range for 2018.
Walks with my dog in the near by Falkland Estate have influenced a range of jewellery in the Botanic, Lunar and Rustic Collections, with a selection of necklaces and giftware that is made using foliage collected from the beautiful woodland estate. Beautiful worn down buildings and weather beaten rocks have played inspiration to a more earthy and rustic feel too.
I hope you enjoy my ranges and collections as much as I have enjoyed making them.
