A Little About Me
Ever since I can remember, I have always loved creating. Even at a young age, I started showing everyone interested in or wanting to learn how to make art. I will always treasure the smiles I got when family and friends opened their gifts or greeting cards I made.
My Journey from Potter to Metal Embossing Artist
Life took me on a journey from South Africa, where I was teaching pottery at a local college, to Canada, where I could not pursue my love for pottery. Fortunately, I was introduced to pewter art or metal embossing and, more recently, to Paverpol and was hooked. I am a certified metal embossing instructor (MercArt) and a certified Paverpol instructor (Paverpol Canada).
Another journey brought me to this point where I can now pursue my passion for creating and teaching full-time.
The Story Behind the Name
Esmeric is a combination of my name, Esme, and my husband’s name Eric. Playing around with various combinations of our names, Esmeric Art came out tops.
A Little About Us
Married with three daughters and four grandkids and hoping for a couple more, we’ve always been a close-knit family. We love traveling and spending time together.
Eric brings my visions to life with his woodworking. It is not always smooth sailing, as he listens and reads my sketches from an engineer’s point of view, and I design and sketch from an artist’s point of view. Usually, after negotiation, we agree, and the prototype goes into production. Always willing to drill holes, quickly saw something at number 99 or the last minute; Eric’s “behind the scene” work plays a big part in Esmeric Art.
Teaching Metal Embossing, Paverpol, and Mixed Media Workshops
