I endeavour to make the wonder-full and to bring LOVE into the world through creative chaos and beautiful things.
Handmade Dorset is a small, independent business based in Dorset, England, UK. We specialise in kind and quirky recycled cards & prints - sharing creative love with the world.
I'm a trained artist exploring and experimenting with materials, colours, and ideas. Handmade Dorset is where my illustration comes alive, I'm able to play with words and spread a little kindness and love through words and drawings. This is my studio, full of chaos and wonderful things! I create work here for both my businesses 'Handmade Dorset' and 'Kuhla Shine Fine Artist'.
Here's a little more info about me:
*I live near the sea in the Dorset countryside with two cute (read naughty) rescue dogs, the love of my life and my all grown son - the last baby of four to leave home. *I have five adorable grand-children with number six due in Autumn. *Through the fabulous work of Marie Kondo I am no longer an incurable hoarder, I love to sing and work with light energies. *My studio is in the garden - I call it the Shable - it's half shed/half stable, made from reclaimed bits of both that my wife Tracey built. *I'm in my 50s, am autistic and can't stop playing. *My handmade business is over 30 years old, and I'm so thrilled that you enjoy my creations.
Thank you for visiting my about page and for supporting my teeny tiny independent business. I LOVE to connect with customers - even though my memory is terrible and I may not remember! -so please say hello on social media! Enjoy! Kuhla x
