Animal Art Christmas Ornaments and Magnets

 Animal Art Christmas Tree Ornaments are popular items year round.  I cut them from Nova Scotia pine and hand paint each one with acrylic paint.  All animals are available, cows, horses, dogs, cats, sheep, goats, donkeys, local wildlife and one of my favourite animals, the giraffe.  They are about 4" high.  They can easily be converted to magnets.

Animal Art Switch Plates

 Animal Art Switch Plates are hand painted shapes cut from pine.  The pine comes from my Dad's woodlot which I have inherited.  I paint the switch plates in many breeds and types of horses, dogs, cats, cows, sheep,goats and sometimes Nova Scotia wildlife.  They are designed for single switches and come with required screws.  they are approximately 4" wide and 8" high.

 These Landscape paintings are usually between 3" by 3" and 8" by 8".  Many of the images depict Nova Scotia landscapes along the Cobequid Bay and Annapolis Valley.  Occasionally I paint the drama of the Atlantic coast line.

Zipper Pulls

 Zipper pulls. 

Zipper pulls
 Zipper Pulls
The Animal Art Zipper Pulls are hand painted on birch plywood.  I cut each animal out one at a time and I specialize in various breeds of dogs, cats, horses, cattle, sheep and other domestic animals.  The Zipper pulls have a lanyard hook that attaches to back packs, purses, jackets, key chains and pretty much anything you can think of!  They are painted in acrylic with a clear protective varnish to protect from the elements.
A fun item popular with young and old!
