Love this


A one of a kind piece of Folk Art, in naive, vintage style
based on the novel Moby Dick as well as antique Americana Folk paintings.

I made this piece in a vintage cutlery box, it is a lovely purple exterior,
worn scuffed and with age, with the original rusty fabric on one side,

I hand stitched on a hand stamped quote panel reading,

'It is not down on any map true places never are'

and added a heart charm I rusted myself.

The sea panel is blue velvet trimmed in blue glitter,
with little button bubbles edged in gold glitter
The sea is vintage blanket edging, I hand stitched on top of with gold thread

The boat is vintage quilting,
I hand drew and stitched the whale using an old vintage blanket, with stitching, an old pearly button eye and tiny fax pearl teeth,

The piece is free standing at right angles open or you can lean against a wall, book shelf etc..... open

It measures aprox
13 inches high
and 10 inches wide


As with all my work I love using vintage materials, mixed media, ephemera, found pieces.....
Pieces will have scuffs, marks, worn edges, rusting.....if materials look too neat I rust them myself, or cut and re-sew fabrics
My style is inspired by Folk Art, Americana, Primitives and by the materials I find,

If you would like any details on a piece or a custom order just message me

None of my Art pieces are suitable for children x
