Hi, I’m Linda Stiles Smith, the creative force behind Naturescapes Studio.
We Figured We Could Make It Ourselves...
Let’s be honest. I’ve tried a lot of crafts in my life and trained in fine art. Like you, I really like to make things. Also, probably like you, My creative path hasn’t always been straight. Deciding what to do wasn’t the issue. Making a creative life more effortless was.
So out of necessity, my line of tools was born. Metal clay, polymer clay, ceramic clay, mixed media had a hole in their tool line up that I thought I could fill, because well, I wanted to make a really small hole and couldn’t find the right tool to do it. Since we, my husband and I, are major DIYers we figured we could make it ourselves. Did others want it? YES!
It's Been A Journey, But We Enjoy It!
Today, I have developed a line of tools for creative people who want quality tools for a wide range of clay and craft work.
After 20 years, we still make them in our studio and supply several companies in the USA. Our love for creativity has been shared thru classes and publications. It’s been a journey, but we enjoy it!
