Hello, I am Caitlin Shiner, the creator of Leaf & Lace; I chose the name to reflect my love of nature and vintage design. I am a self-taught artist and printmaker; I mainly create linocut and collagraph prints and a mixture of watercolour, oil and acrylic paintings. All my work is inspired by nature, from the plants and animals in the countryside and coastline around where I live in North Devon; to my large garden which is always full of birds and sometimes even my two beautiful whippets named Mini and Luna.
I have a deep love and appreciation for 20th century design with a particular affinity for the Art Nouveau, Art Deco movements and Bloomsbury artists; which have a subliminal influence on my work, characterised by a feminine fluid style botanical subjects and a subtle but rich colour palette.
You will mostly find my prints and paintings on here, however I also enjoy creating hand printed textile items such as luxury silk scarves, upcycled, hand printed vintage table linens and fabrics which are made up by my daughter Araminta Pain into a unique headbands. These can be found on my Etsy shop: www.leafandlacedesign.etsy.com.
I regularly exhibit at craft markets in the North Devon area, follow my Instagram page (@leaf_and_lace) for the latest news and sign up to my mailing list for exclusive offers.
