The creator is Jocelyn Friis and she hales from Auckland, New Zealand...so far away but close to us via the wonderful computer waves and ETSY.
Her shop has been open since 2009 and she creates a wide variety of art from paintings, fabric art, cards, bookmarks, photography, family trees, ACEO's, Digital Stationery, manets, photo jewelry, Christmas and Valentines, stationery, tags, banners and boxes. Phew, now that's some talent.
"Sea shore acrylic mixed media paintings with real New Zealand Paua shell
Texture and sea shore colours abound in this set of three acrylic paintings on canvas board. Real New Zealand Paua shell gives the finishing touch to these beachy abstracts. Inspired by photos I took on my local beach early one morning. (You can see them here http://www.flickr.com/photos/jocelynfriisart ) Made with artist quality acrylic paints, paste, glass beads and sealer. Size each 5" x 7""
Here are her words about these lovely photo tags......
"Five beach theme gift tags, using photographs taken by me, printed professionally on photographic paper and adhered by hand in a 3D fashion onto white card. These tags would be lovely attached to a gift or, for sellers, included with your Etsy sale. Or how about wrapping them up and giving as a unique gift to someone who "has it all". I am able to do custom tags with your shop name or other wording on too."
She sure lives in a beautiful place!
I certainly do appreciate an artist who is multi-talented and gives her buyers a taste of each of her gifts. The personal attention that an ETSY seller gives is way beyond the normal buying experience.
