Hi I’m Fen and my life is about creations organically inspired by nature
Nature inspired making and creating has long been a passion of mine from childhood days collecting and pressing wild flowers to gathering vegetables from the garden to create a delicious evening meal. Collecting seeds to propagate and wild flowers to make boquets for my bedroom were part and parcel of many enjoyed childhood adventures through countryside and woodland walks. Carried through to adulthood my design style is organically inspired from nature where all the best ideas come from.
Writing became a by product of my close connection with nature and so was born my books “poems to pave your pathway” ,the children’s stories “no fear here” written to encourage children to embrace, rather than fear, the elements and “Fairyland” a magical trip to inspire thought exploration in young children
I love the great outdoors and it is where I feel mostly inspired. From tropical beaches to woodland walks, from mountain climbs to cliff top strolls I am always finding inspiration of sorts. I always carry a foraging bag and usually manage to fill it with anything from seashells to seaweed, stones, seedheads, feathers, flower petals, driftwood, wild flowers the list is endless. Each item is carefully crafted into useful and decorative items for the home and garden.
