Toile Cire'e recreated 14th Century French Floor Coverings

All Art By Antosa ©
Hi!


As an Art Historian (MA from Aberdeen University) I not only love creating Art but also researching into ancient methods artists etc and finding out the Whys? Who's? & What's? .

My facination with14th Century French Floor Coverings 'Toile Cire'e' came after a special trip to Paris in 2010 with my  Sister Mare-ona. I simply adored the trip which was the first 4 days of Springtime and we had a super artisticly relaxing, fun time & we both simply fell in love with and were inspired by Paris.

After the trip I decided to do a 360degree turn around and I changed my apartment into French shabby chic-ish? the end result are some of the floor coverings seen here

And so my new passion & research into 14th Century French Floor Coverings began!

But I, being poor, have only my dreams;

I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

1899 W B Yeats

I will over time share with you a little of the history of the 'Toile Cire'e which I hope will facinate you as much as it does me. And as my Creative business grows I look forward to creating these magical carpets for you to enjoy too!

Have a good day :) x

When you love something so dear to your  heart as I do my Art it is a pleasure to nurture develop evolve & grow the art creations & projects day by day.

Antosa On the Wings of a Butterfly!:) for love is like a Butterfly!

Taking to flight is not the easiest thing to do for a fledgling  like me,  but when one considers that there is a butterfly the 'Monarch Butterfly' that migrate and fly as far as 3,000 miles to reach their winter home! the saying 'on the wings of a butterfly' takes on a whole new meaning!
have a super day:)

New Creations

New Creations, New DreamsNew Beginings & New Tomorrows!

Hello!
I am just so delighted to welcome you to Jambo Creations Ltd. As an artist I cannot express in full just how much I love no adore art. As a romantic poet and artist I wrote the following which described how much art means to me.

' I cannot give up my Dreams
just as I cannot give up the air I breathe
lest I die
Springtime is here and the heart is
filled with sunny rays 
& New Begginings'Antosa2000

I put so much heart and soul into my work that my spirit becomes intertwined into my work so much so at times it is a wrench to part with my art works. In fact on one occasion I was discussing with my sister who is a very accomplished  artist in her own right how difficult it was to part with one particular art work and I explained to her that I was going to make a certificate for the buyer. My sister looked at me smilingly and said' Antosa your art is not a living pedigree puppy dog! No darling sister but to me it was like giving away a baby! Such is life!:)

I shall be updating this blog with news so please keep posted and I look forward to hearing from you too!:)
