ETSY LOVE: The Talented Shelley Kommers

Thursday, August 28, 2008

By Shelley Kommers of Oiseaux Noir

Bookplates available at Oiseaux

Shelley Kommers, describes herself as "an artist-illustrator-designer-painter-gardener."

I think I will just call her talented.

Shelley has two quaint shops on Etsy: Oiseaux and Oiseaux Noir. For all of you non-Francophones, a "oiseaux" is a bird. This talented member of the Etsy community is a bird lover as well.

I first came across Oiseaux when I was doing some window shopping for potential gifts for Nick's upcoming birthday. Yes, Nick will be 5 one week from today! Bookplates are a wonderful gift idea, especially for children who love to read. Oiseaux offers several vintage designs from which to choose. All are of lovely pictures adapted from vintage children's stories.


You will also find a couple of other personalized gifts with a vintage flair for children at Oiseaux.


Shelley is also a talented artist. Her original artwork is offered at her other Etsy shop called Oiseaux Noir. She has several truly unique and beautiful mixed media collage pieces available. I really like the one I pictured above entitled "Maggie."

I believe we'll be seeing alot more of Shelley's work in the future! Check out her great Etsy shops today. Shelley is also a fellow blogger! Click the link to view her blog.
