I am so excited to bring to you today the sweetest etsy shop, owned by the sweetest lady!
Let me introduce you…..
My name is Ruth-Mary Smith. I live in beautiful Sydney Australia and am the illustrator behind patchworkfamilyart on etsy. I use watercolours, ink and vintage material to create illustrations that celebrate families. Patchwork Family Art is the name I have chosen for my art biz because of the way my family has been formed. It’s a patchwork! I have 3 daughters my first through inter country adoption from Taiwan, natural born for my second daughter and then fostering which we hope to complete local adoption on, early next year for our third daughter!
I have long been interested in art and creating and have done a variety of different types however when I was first married I studied watercolour over a couple of years. With the passing of time, and the arrival of babies, it became harder to find time for my creative pursuits. Two years ago I decided the time had come to dive back in. I felt like a creative desert and was couldn’t wait to get back to it. It was watercolours calling me and I haven’t looked back!
I sell locally as well as a couple of online stores and have been asked to do custom work lately which I love and will be adding the option to my etsy store in the next couple of weeks.
Presently, from May 1st – May 20th I am running a 20 Artworks 20 Days release of my current artworks. I have focused mainly on the subject so dear to my heart- motherhood. I am really excited to offering this giveaway " My dream come true" one my favorites from my current range!
Here are a few of the beautiful pieces of art she has in her etsy shop.
Ruth-Mary is sweet enough to giveaway one of her precious prints and a set of 6 rosebud tags.
