A Little About Esme

Ever since I can remember, I have always loved creating. Even at a young age, I started showing everyone interested in looking and learning how to make art. Something I will treasure forever is 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, a perfect fit for my mixed media art. I have studied with two of the best instructors to become a certified Pewter/Metal Embossing instructor.
About two years ago, I was introduced to Paverpol, a textile hardener used primarily for sculpting and was hooked. Realizing this is something I would like to know more about and wanted to teach the medium, I took the certification course to become a certified Paverpol instructor. As with mixed media, Paverpol is another perfect fit for metal embossing.
Another journey brought me to this point where I can now pursue my passion for creating and teaching full time.

Teaching Metal Embossing and Paverpol Workshops

As much as I love creating, I realized teaching makes me happy.
I love sharing my knowledge through teaching in my studio and other venues throughout Canada, Team Building Workshops and Social and Corporate Events. Workshops are in pewter/metal embossing and various other mediums, with Paverpol as the latest edition.
Experiencing that moment when someone realizes I can do this is paramount. Many ESMERIC ART workshop participants have become pewter and metal embossing artists in their own right. So many come into the studio, saying they will never get it right, then leaving at the end of a workshop with WOW, I did it. 

Metal Embossing Tools, Supplies and Online Store

With metal embossing supplies not readily available, it opened the door to supply metal embossing tools, pewter sheets and other miscellaneous items needed for the art. Having the supplies readily available helps to offer a wider variety of pewter art and metal embossing workshops, complemented by various other mediums like Paverpol.
