Carolynís Hand painted Designs was born in Sedgefield, a little seaside town in the Western Cape where she found a special peace and tranquility and was also delighted to discover it to be well known for arts and crafts.
Carolyn fell in love with Sedgefield and her passion for art blossomed in this environment as did her dream to one day paint. She decided that if she could paint and then paint on fabric, she would be able to create beautiful, but useful items which could be enjoyed in and around the home. So, Carolyn decided to make her dream a reality by attending art classes and researching how to set up her own business. After two years, she was ready to begin and looked for a location which had the foot traffic she needed to sell her beautiful wares and this meant launching an Arts & Crafts market in Sedgefield which ran in conjunction with the Wild Oats Food Market held on a Saturday morning. So, Scarab Market was launched with local artists exhibiting and selling their art.
Carolyn's passion lies in vibrant indigenous fauna and floral and these beautiful hand painted pieces, Carolyn will tell you take several hours to complete as they involve a great deal of layering to bring the piece to life. Carolyn will also tell you that she gains a great deal of pleasure from taking a clients vision and turning it into a beautiful reality.
In 2008 Carolyn moved back to KwaZulu-Natal and with her studio at her home in Hilton, she has focused on local shows such as: The Hilton Arts Festival, The Garden Show, The Royal Show, Wartburg Christmas Market and Just Boutique Open Days. She is very excited to launch her website and would love to take commissions and orders from folk all over South Africa and abroad. She also loves to share her talents and has been sponsored by The Department of Art and Culture to do workshops and her workshops are also featured on Just Boutique see http://www.justboutique.net.
