Hi, my name is Evelyne "Evi" Frick and I am the owner of Evi's Lil' Shop, where all the arts & crafts items are hand-made by myself. I am also a participating artist at the Laguna Beach Sawdust Art Festival since 2005 and a member of the Laguna Craft Guild.

You guessed it, my work is naturally influenced by my love for animals, cats in particular. My own cats 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.
