Artists Inspiration:

I have been a mad collector of vintage goods in many mediums for the last 20 years. Iíve since amassed quite the collection of wallpaper, old prints, books, lamps of all types and vintage architectural pieces which I transform into lamps and shades. I stumbled into making lampshades, my Shandellís specialty, 15 years ago. At that time I had an antique and decorative-arts store that focused on vintage textiles, and I found myself on a constant search for decent lampshades to go with my fabulous vintage lighting finds. A lampshade-crafting customer, Liz Courtney, convinced me to try my own creative luck. She sold me her barn full of supplies and took off for her Caribbean winter home. My earliest lampshades, made from collaged vintage wallpapers, were featured in Country Home and Victoria. My collection of vintage lighting had grown through the years. I make my own lamps out of antique and unusual findings, even bits of nature. Pairing my lamps with a wonderful shade is like putting icing on a cakeóthe best part. My styles and vary often: hand painted paper from local artists, hand made paper from all over the world, bits of nature, the list is long.
