Hello, I am Amanda Reynolds, an artist based on the edge of the vibrant city of Leeds in the rolling hills of Yorkshire and team leader at Craft Ark Club, an Arts & Crafts Workshop for children. I have set up this small independent art business, for my growing customer base.

I love to create new art all of the time, and I do this for customers who want a commission. They want something new, original and really special. Usually for children’s birthdays or Christenings. The paintings don’t end up in the bottom of the toy box because I create them solely for that one customer. It’s lovely to be a part of that thoughtful process. I love drawings animals and really enjoy creating Pet Portraits too. My favourite thing is seeing all the funny photos and hearing the stories of what your pets get up to. Recently I have helped to set up Craft Ark Club so I can teach children to find the joy and creative release at our workshops. Making things is something I believe creative folk need in their lives. It’s food for the soul and by running the workshops and children’s birthday parties I hope to inspire future artists, designers and creative and encourage children to have the confidence in themselves to go for it.

I also create the art for all of my mugs, coasters, personalised prints and other bits and bobs that all go into the shop.

If you like to think of yourself as a kind and thoughtful soul, looking for ‘Something a little bit different’, you’ve seen thousands of plastic, crappy images and your swiping finger has frozen into a claw shape; Then  STOP RIGHT THERE….This is a tacky free site.

Personally I love gorgeous gifts and products which are solid and well made, so I will only create a quality piece of art , new product or piece for the homeware selection in the shop, when it is 100% beautiful and functional.

Because I am an independent small business, my items are not rushed off a production line in China faster than the speed of light and I am proud of this fact.

My studio is where all the artwork is produced, printed and framed. All of your goods purchased are posted straight out of the studio, based in Allerton Bywater, Castleford, Yorkshire.

ACRDesign always aims to support local businesses by using product printers and suppliers based within Yorkshire where possible.
