Magnets and Small Items

When I spend time in the garden, my fascination is with the little things around me. The tiniest blooms and the smallest of insects never fail to attract my eye. In my studio, I am equally interested in smaller-scale canvases for my art. There’s something intimate about a diminutive drawing or photograph hanging on a wall. It invites you to step closer to get a better look. When deciding which pretty useful things to offer in my shop, I couldn’t overlook the smaller objects in our everyday lives that add a bit of beauty while performing a necessary function.

Magnets are a perfect way to bring everyday art and nature into your home or work space! I currently have four types of magnetic art available:

And whether you’re at home or away, why not always have a little piece of art and nature with you! I’m working on several small, shiny aluminum products to add to the shop. Here are a few available now:
