After leaving my full time job and home in Hertfordshire and moving to Hythe in Kent I have found the time to pursue my hobby of painting and drawing. I am now starting to build my hobby into a business inspired by our coastal surroundings and our beautiful retired greyhounds George Grey and Diamond.
I have a Facebook Page that I keep updated with all my new designs ...
I now have ALL my designs on Redbubble.com so that I can leave them to do the manufacturing and selling while I can get on with the designing!! If you copy and paste this link this will take you to my portfolio - any problems let me know and I will help you to find me!! Anything I paint or design goes straight onto the redbubble site and you can buy it!!
I am starting to upload my designs onto another selling platform called Society6 It's not as well known as Redbubble but it does some great items that Redbubble don't sell like beach towels, coffee tables and even deck chairs!!
I am currently setting up an Etsy shop - all my designs will eventually be available as digital files for you to buy and use for your own personal use and also for your own financial gain.
If you would like to chat with me to discuss anything please fill in the contact form or ring me on 07856703495 Have a look through my gallery. I still have some originals that I haven't sold and most of the other paintings and designs are available as prints.
I design material to make dog collars, mainly sighthounds. These are all handmade using top quality attachments. My dogs wear them and I wouldn't trust anything but the best on my two!
'Little Pink Dog' use my material designs for their collars and have also put some of the designs onto a bright grosgrain ribbon available in 25mm, 40mm or 50mm.
Their new facebook page is and
they now have an online shop https://littlepinkdogcollars.ecwid.com/
I also sell material designs on Spoonflower. They have a great range of materials and their colours are nice and crisp. https://www.spoonflower.com/profiles/janewrenart
They not only sell materials they also have a separate shop that sells wrapping paper, tea towels, place mats and more. If there is a design you want that isn't yet on there then just let me know. If you need the image a certain size to make for example, a lampshade, I can change the sizes or even background colour to match your decor.
MEDAL DISPLAYS AND COMMEMORATIVE COASTERS & MUGS
My other pastime is running and I tried to find innovative ways to display our 'special' medals instead of just keeping them in a box or on a medal hanger where nobody gets to see them. I have even displayed our dogs first canicross medal for him as he is very proud of it! This has also led me to making commemorative mugs, coasters and prints for any events including the very popular Parkrun.
Some of my customers ask me to make a personalised image and then I upload it for them on to Redbubble where they can buy it on cards, t-shirts, bags etc. You only have to ask and I can do it!!
I find there aren't enough hours in the day for all the ideas I have in my head!!
