Hello and Welcome!
My name is Denise and I am the founder, manager, buyer, order picker, postie and customer service person and general dogsbody for I Love Mixed Media.!
I am so excited to here making my passion for colour and creativity into a business.
I had my first adventure with mixed media about 10 years ago, painting canvases with acrylic paints, adding dimension with glass beads, sands and metallics. I was lucky enough to gain a few commissions and sales from a few art events but it was always a part time hobby. As a single mum of three, I had to put the art on the back burner while life took over and I stuck with “proper paid work” although the love of craft didn’t disappear.
Not long after my 50th birthday my health took a down turn and has been on and off since. So I have decided life is too short to fill your day with things that don’t make you happy. The thing that makes me happy is creating and learning new techniques and sharing the joys of being creative.
I hope you will find some inspiration on my site and that you will find suppplies at a great price, whether it is the everyday basics that we all need, or exciting new products to spark your creativity.
I Love Mixed Media may be a one person business, but it is not a one person show – it’s a community made up of lots of customers who enjoy sharing their projects in our Facebook group and also a dedicated team producing samples and tutorials and helping with the workshops. You can find out more about this select team on the Meet The Team, and see some of their work in the Showcase.
