Hi, my name is Deidre and I welcome you to my little dream world!
I am a not-so-traditional artist with lots of stories in my head that I turn into illustrations with polymer clay and needle felting. My stories are inhabited by all sorts of magical creatures! Witches, mermaids, fairies, angels, goddesses, unicorns, magical peacocks and so much more.
I am so happy to share my story worlds with you all and hope there will be a character or story that speaks to you!
I am a polymer clay and needle felt artist, and my original work comes in the form of clay paintings (shadow boxes), needle felted pictures and wearable art jewelry.
With the help of photography I offer depictions of my original works as illustrations in other forms such as fine art prints, greeting cards, tote bags, throw pillowcases and mugs.
My work is based on the little stories in my head and are illustrations as such. They are magical, fairy tale, fantasy and pagan inspired.
I love nothing more than people connecting to the stories, characters and atmospheres in my work.
I have quite a colourful personality myself, which I pass on to my work and my characters. Colour is what I love most in and about life. I am fascinated by how different colours can tell a character's story and give creatively different energies in pieces.
And, when it comes to my clay work, I live for the details and the texture that can be given to sculpted work, how layers can give depth and make pieces a lively painting.
Deidre Dreams is based in the South of The Netherlands.
