About Me

As you might be able to guess from the title my name is Violett (yes 2ts at the end and it's not a typo) and I love Dragons and purple. I guess I'm a bit of a geek as I love anything Sci-Fi or Fantasy.


I've been writing poetry since I was in primary school, one of the first books I owned (and still have a copy of) is 'The Puffin Book of Magic Verse', where I was introduced to Tennyson, Charles Causley and celtic poems of unknown origin such as The song of Amerigan. William Blake is however my favourite poet and a major influence on my style. I have had a poem published in an anthology and also have won poetry competitions in the past.


Recently I have had some poetry published in The Wolfian E Mag and also have started to write some political articles too.


I have always appreciated art though until I discovered Encaustic art never though of myself as an artist. I have found that through this medium I can create the types of images that I enjoy.


I paint them and write poetry mostly for my own pleasure and enjoyment, however others who have seen my work have suggested that I sell it so here I am. I have an Etsy shop where my original artwork can be purchased or via T Shirt Studio where some of the images are available on mugs, coasters, clocks etc.


I am also a very much amateur photographer although some come out quite nicely. These too may be available on a product via the TShirtStudio.


My love of Dragons has also had me delving into the world of Polymer Clay, still at the practicing stage but have created a couple of Dragons and Dragon Eyes. When I have sorted the techniques and am happy with the quality they will be available for sale via the Etsy shop, complete with an adoption certificate and introductory letter.

Encaustic Art

I appreciate art of all sorts, especially fantasy, surrealist and abstract. Since discovering encaustic art about 10 years ago I am happy to be able to produce my own. Many have been given to friends as cards or gifts although they have suggested selling them - so here I am
