Hello and welcome to this edition of Cheri’s Pickin’s where I, your wonderful host, introduce you to some fabulous sellers and their wonderful goodies! There are so many fabulous sellers on etsy and all over the web and I am going to help you find some of them. I have asked each seller to give me a little info on themselves and their shop and at the end you will find out how you can win a free item! So, without further delay…. here is this weeks pickin’!
(If you are a seller on or off etsy please let me know if you would like to be featured in my blog!)
Hi people, my name is Helen Wheeler-Shaw, a New Zealander now living in the good ol’ US. After recently ‘discovering’ etsy, I have had a lot of fun getting my shop together called ‘The Willows Nest’. I am one of those crazy creative types who finds it ‘ hard to breathe’, if I haven’t been ‘throwing some paint around’ for a while!
I have been ‘arty’ all my life, am always’ into’ something new but always return to painting, my true love. I am delighted to have many paintings in private collections in Australia, America, New Zealand , Saudi Arabia and South Africa.
I create in my lovely studio looking out at the wildlife in the hill country of Texas, very inspiring! I live there with my husband ( from South Africa,) our son Luke (born in Saudi Arabia) and Zackary ( our very own little American) We are like a mini United nations! lol!
So even with the constant battle of keeping the 18 month old toddler from ‘loving’ all my animal paintings, I have managed to start filling up my little shop, here are a couple of examples! ‘Saffron’ and ‘Sunset’, painted in watercolors and Indian Ink
and ‘Fuchsia and Friend’, also watercolor and Indian Ink.
Currently I am all inspired by the old Botanical prints, so popular in Victorian Times, these current works reflect this.
I have included a give away for your draw, it is a set of 6 yummy textured notecards with matching envelopes entitled ‘Nesting.’ There are 2 cards of each image – Prints of my original work ‘Falling Feather’ , ‘Little Blue’ and ‘Spring Nest.’ All 3 works were completed in charcoal, pastel and Indian Ink. Enjoy, congrats to the winner!
Lovely to pop in and say Hi’ to you all, come and say hi to me if you have time at:
Cheers , Helen
