Introducing Deb Riddell of Paxton Valley Folk Art

Meet my friend and team mate Deb Riddell from the Primitive and Folk Artist Group.
I think you will agree her creations are Fabulous!
1.  How did you come up with your business name?
I got my business name from the beautiful valley that we live in, here in British Columbia, Canada.
2.  How long have you been in business?
I 've been crafting for about 20 years but decided to become an 'on-line' presence as Paxton Valley Folk Art about 2 1/2 years ago.
3.  Who or what inspires you?
I am inspired by the colours, textures and beauty of the natural world.
4.  What is your creative style, primitive, country, folk art?
My style is currently primitive and folk art but I love learning new techniques and styles so who knows where I will end up next!
5.  What medium do you use in creating, clay, fabric, altered art, wood etc.?
I work with fabric, paint, wood, found objects, stamps, paper and anything else that strikes my fancy.
I create hand crafted folk art from my own designs and from the designs of other talented artisans. I also create my own original e-patterns and occasionally have a found vintage treasure or two to share at my Etsy shop or on my selling blog. I am also just starting to get into wholesaling my items, so if you are a shop owner looking for wholesale prices, please contact me!
