I create extremely well made stones of art, using washed Scottish stones and beach cobbles.
Fine detail Japanese graphic ink pens, or Indian ink are used for the illustrations and writing of words. finally they are sealed with a sheer varnish for durability and effect.
These pieces can be used as Paperweights, Special occasion Keepsakes, Sewing enthusiasts fabric weight or for interior decor/accessories.
they are a good quality piece of art, that are both intricate and fun yet organic in detail. One of the range display's fossil &ancient specimens, (most of these collections are a figment of my imagination mixed with Nature) e.g deep sea creatures, Anthropods & shell-like. there also are a illustrations of bugs, Mushroom and fungi, vehicles and graphic patterns as well as examples of Home. e.t.c.
I live in a characteristic little Scottish village of appx 700 people, which is surrounded by beautiful coastlines and beaches, forests and farmland, often visited by tourists.
There is a local castle situated walking distance from my home which is used as a wedding venue most weekends. and brings in both Scottish and international visitors to the locality.
My target audience would be the general cosmopolitan public. Seeking one off quirky pieces of art, that are skillfully made I offer to customise for special occasions such as Weddings, Christenings, New home, Thank you and Keepsakes.
Each piece is at a mid-premium price taking into account the quality of packaging, materials and time needed for each uniquely designed Stone Prices will range from £10 - £20:00 with an increase on customised items..
I envisage young women/middle-aged women as the predominant purchasers, but Artrox is geared to the discerning public in general.
I hope to distribute my craft through some local businesses i.e. Scottish gift shops/Restaurants, Farmshops/boutiques, quality craft fairs and online sites i.e. Folksy UK and Etsy.
