Hi, my name is Evelyne "Evi" Frick and I am the owner of Evi's Lil' Shop. I am also a participating artist at the Laguna Beach Sawdust Art Festival since 2005 and a member of the Laguna Craft Guild.

Hello my friends,

This year's Sawdust Winter Fantasy in Laguna Beach.is already in full swing! Our festival grounds have been transformed into a splendid winter wonderland where many artists are producing, showing and selling unique creations. This is happening over the course of five weekends, 10 am - 6 pm, starting Nov 22nd 2014. Friday after Thanksgiving is open, too, and the last day is Dec 21th. You can get more information directly at www.sawdustartfestival.org

My booth number is still #215, should be easy to find since it is the same as during the summer. Look for the black kitty looking down from my roof. I am exited to see you again and to exhibit my new winter items.

There is something for everyone, one of a kind knitted or crocheted scarves/hats, one of a kind Beanies for him or her with cool Laguna Beach labels. Stocking stuffer like cuddly fleece/ Fashion fur scarves. And for the cat lovers there are plenty of originals, or giclee reporoductions and everyday cards. Lots of Tote-bags for "California go green" with cat, dog, horse and many other designs.

Dress warm and come on down to Laguna Beach. Looking forward to seeing you and have a joyous  Holiday Season!

Evi's Lil' Shop offers a wide variety of uniquely hand-made products (designed and made by Evelyne) which comprises artwork and wearable art items:
   -  unique purses, shawls, scarves, hats: sewn, crocheted or knitted
painted totes, T-shirts and hats with cat-theme, flower-themed or abstract
ceramics: unique cat sculptures, bowls, spoon rest and other accessories
   -  original artwork, cat-themed and some landscape. oil, watercolor, ink
   -  limited reproductions of original artwork. Greeting cards with cat themes.

You guessed it, my work is naturally influenced by my love for animals, cats in particular. My cats, Manchita Baby, Neo, Klees-Graus (aka Muesli) and late Knusch-Knusch, Bijou and Shiny are subjects in many of my paintings, as well as cats of friends and the cat rescue...

Please also visit the Forever Home Cat Rescue where I am a volunteer, we always have cats to adopt or foster and you can also volunteer. Click here for our facebook page.

Besides the creative aspects, the quality of my work is something I take great pride in. Experience with all kind of sewing techniques since my childhood years gave me the necessary confidence to constantly explore new techniques and refine old ones.
To name a few: sewing, macramé, weaving, silk painting, canvas painting, crocheting, embroidery, knitting and beading, Fimo sculpting, drawing & painting.

My extensive know-how is underscored by
-- Two degrees in Home Economics and Arts & Crafts (Teachers College in Switzerland)
-- Arts & Crafts and Home Ec teacher at a High School in Liechtenstein for seven years
-- Full teaching credential from the Board of Education in Liechtenstein.
-- 1991 to 1993:Certificate in Fashion Merchandising from San Diego Mesa College
-- 1991: First prize California Community College Fashion Symposium (Fashion Prediction)
-- Jo-Ann’s Fabrics & Crafts store 1999-2012 one day/week as a merchandising
   fabric specialist.
-- Saddleback College: watercolor classes to rekindle my passion for watercolor
   painting again and to learn additional techniques.
-- Bardot Collection Boutique Laguna Beach 2001-2006. At first production manager,
   later more and more role of an artist, painting.
-- Summer & Winter Sawdust Art Festival in Laguna Beach since 2005.
-- Laguna Craft Guild’s cobblestone markets on Main Beach in Laguna Beach since 2006.

In brief, I have been committed to quality work and an outstanding variety of hand-made wearable art products and multi-media artwork, mostly with cat themes. My business is located in beautiful Laguna Beach, California, USA.
