Hello! I'm Jaine and I live with Simon in a small market
town called Whaley Bridge on the edge of the
Peak District in England.
I've been drawing and making things since I was
little and family & friends love receiving a present
or card from me as they are always handmade!
In 1986 I made some peeps out of polymer clay
for chums when I was leaving work for pastures
new - a mermaid for Sarah who swam with me
every lunchtime, and George & his dragon for
Sophie (who was married to George) - from that
moment on I was hooked.
A few years passed and I was chatting with friends who were getting married. As it was the second (and final) time for both of them, they decided they didn't want any presents but we wanted to give them something special so I asked if I could ‘sculpt them’. After a few whispered questions to Jill about her dress & flowers, and a quick sketch of Colin in his hat, I spent several evenings giggling as I transformed some clay into the happy couple. On the big day, my peeps had pride of place on top of their cake - this was the beginning of sculpting the awesome!
Now my unique style of sculptures & cards have gone to happy homes all over the world and I am proud to be able to play a small part in so many people’s celebrations.
