About the Creator & Artist behind Teacup Girl

I'm an acrylic artist, a mother to three, and an entrepreneur  - just to name a small part of what I do. How I ended up right where I am was a heck of a ride, but here's a little bit of my story.

I started dressing in vintage styles in 2010 after discovering the glamorous fashions of days long gone through vintage bloggers all over the globe.

Right from the start, I was drawn to vintage accessories, namely brooches as they were the easiest to wear. I loved collecting authentic antique and vintage brooches, of which I have ended up with more than a few.

I started dabbling in the world of contemporary brooches when I heard about an Australian accessory brand called Erstwilder in 2011. Their designs were cute and quirky, and they were right up my alley.

I bought a few pieces from Erstwilder, and other brooch designers here and there, but it wasn't until late 2016 when I joined a Facebook group for brooch collectors that brooches became more than just a casual hobby - they became a passion.

In that group I found my tribe, lovely people that shared the interest and understand the craziness of the tiny bits of plastic that we pin to our clothing. And I'd figured something else along the way - brooches aren't just a bit of plastic.

They are a wonderful blend of art and function - wearable collectibles that don't just sit in your home on a shelf. They show how you feel without words, a picture you don't wear on your sleeve, but above your heart. They are something that can spread smiles and bring joy, and I love that.

If any of my art from Teacup Girl can bring just one smile to a face, I am happy. That's why I do what I do, and why I love it!
