Since exploring patchwork for many different home furnishings I have always had a bit of an obsession with squares, repeated lines and patterns, so when I found mosaics I was hooked!
My collection is made up of plaques, bowls, decorative baubles and house numbers using my own designs of birds, butterflies, fish and flowers. I am happy to make personalised commissions too.
I also love fabrics and make colourful flower brooches as well as sweet little birds to pin on your hat, coat or favourite clothes.
My "day job" is hand-stitching bespoke curtains and roman blinds and yet I'm still inspired to sew all evening too!
My other hobbies include being a background artist for TV, running, gardening and baking.
Hi I'm Kerry. I studied Art, Design and Graphic's at college and always thought graphic's was my future but it was not to be. Shortly after leaving college I discovered making and creating was my true passion. It began as a hobby as it does with many and then friends and family wanted to buy items, which led to parties, then where I am today and the creation of Kerry's Boutique!
As I'm dedicating more and more time to my creative endeavours, my designs are expanding and developing. I never make more than 5 of each item and where possible I will upcycle materials into my piece. Currently I'm concentrating my time on jewellery, cards and picture, and with all my pieces I try and incorporate a bold and/or colourful element.
As my pieces are always changing there's always something new to see on my Facebook and Etsy pages. I always welcome commission pieces; past commissions have included wedding jewellery, cards for special occasions and pictures on a larger scale! Pop along and say hi!
The majority of my designs are handmade from fabric, including house décor, toys, hanging mobiles and accessories. I like to experiment with current popular household items such as my twist on the fabric doorstop; in sumo form! Also due to feature in December is a most unexpected bunting design!
Every art piece is created with passion and good quality fabric and as it is all handmade, each item is unique!
Expect many a strange and wonderful item!
