Hi, Welcome to Chickadee, Ink Creations.
Let me tell about how Chickadee got its name. My mother
lifted her first paintbrush when she was 80 years old, and created
beautiful paintings of birds. Her favourite was of chickadees, which won
first prize at a country fair. She painted for four short years then
passed away at the age of 86. In honour of her creative genius and
indominatible spirit, I have called my business Chickadee, Ink Creations.
Chickadee offers an opportunity to purchase unique hand-painted items for
those who love “few”-of-a-kind hand-painted creations. Although many items
will look alike, on close scrutiny you will find each one is different in
a unique aspect. Many are of a limited series in which a theme or idea is
explored. Look around and see what we have to offer.
All items are hand-painted with acrylics and finished with varnish, unless
otherwise noted. The surfaces may vary - usually wood, tin or ceramic. We
also work with a potter to create unique clay shapes, kiln-fired and
glazed on the inside and hand painted on the outside, then finished with
varnish. As each shape is individually created, you will find not all
items are exactly alike - each having its own variations.
We hope you enjoy looking at our gallery. If there is an item in the
gallery you are interested in, or have your own idea, please let us know
Drop us a line and share your ideas, interests, or just to say hello. Let
us know what you would like to see more of. Some of our most successful
endeavours come from the input of friends and family. We would love to
hear from you.
