Welcome to the ArtsFindlay website.

Feast your eyes on amazing original artwork made from textiles. Kate has been creating fabric paintings since 2014 using applique methods and mixing in many other print and paint techniques too.

You will find original art for your home here, as well as landscape and wildlife prints. In the shop, browse products for the home including cushions, mugs and tea towels, as well as an extensive collection of greetings cards.
