Get to know besidethesea.art
I love to try different crafts, but it was during the 1st Lockdown of 2020 whilst doing garden repairs that I discovered String Art. I started using the offcuts of decking as my base with embroidery thread and panel pins to create some lovely pictures. I have several versions of Hearts & Flowers available, in addition to Boats, Anchors & Beach Huts, with new pictures being added regularly. Each picture is unique, both from the wood grain & colour, to the string pattern & pins used. They can be free standing, or hung & make great gifts to brighten any home.
Exploring the art of paint pouring has been a new passion of mine. I have a range of products available on my site from Clocks & Vases, to Canvas pictures & Xmas trees. Fluid Art creates such unique exciting designs, with each paint pour creating entirely different results from the last. I can send photos of available pieces through if asked as my range of products is constantly changing and expanding.
If there’s a specific product you can’t find, don’t hesitate to get in touch. I am always happy to consider custom orders for valued clients.
