DriftwoodSails is all about handcrafted coastal cottages, seaside & harbour scenes, beach huts, wooden lighthouses, driftwood sailboats, poetry art cottages, handpainted beach pebbles & shells. These artworks are created using salvaged wood, naturally weathered driftwood, chalk paint & other beach finds such as frosted sea glass, tumbled sea slate, smooth pebbles, sand & shells. I also use pressed & dried flowers and leaves from the garden, and wildflowers from the coastline.

Samphire Glass

A glass artist forever learning and experimenting. I love making pendants, earrings, bowls and other items using fused glass. I love the vast array of colour’s, effects and depth that glass can produce. Jewellery is such a personal item and no piece that I produce will ever be the same. I also make small decorative home décor pieces and bowls; fusing glass and images into the glass using high temperature decals. they can used to make coasters, hanging glass images and pictures fused and mounted in frames.
