West Fife businesswoman encourages mums to get creative

1A west Fife glass-painter is encouraging other mothers to follow their creative instincts and even take the plunge in setting up their own businesses.

Jacquelyne Davidson, mother to six-year-old Christopher-Luke, launched hand-painted glassware business Jac By Design in November 2012, after twelve years of glass-painting as a hobby.

In addition to selling her glassware online and at the Kilns gift shop in Limekilns, Potter About in Burntisland and Piggy Bank Gifts in Leslie, she hopes to be an inspiration to the other creative mums she meets when customers book her for glass-painting parties.

Jacquelyne said: “I’ve met some very talented mums when giving glass-painting demonstrations and when instructing customers in painting their own glassware. They ask lots of questions about painting and are so enthusiastic about creating their own designs.

“I would love to see more people become involved in painting glassware or in pursuing whatever creative art they have a passion and talent for. If they are really keen and are thinking about ways to return to work while avoiding some of the headaches of childcare, I would even encourage them to think about starting up their own home business.

“If they don’t try, they will never know whether they could have made a success out of the hobby they love.”

Dunfermline MSP Bill Walker, who recently met Jacquelyne to learn about her business, said: “Jacquelyne is really keen to make a success of Jac By Design. She’s clearly very talented and has great business instincts.

“I think what she’s doing is an excellent way to earn money out of being creative, and I wish her every success with her glass-painting business.”
