About Us

Gauche Alchemy is for those that create outside of the box, those that create inside of the box and those that tear the box a new one…

Gauche Alchemy, the brain child and passion of co-owners Amy Wing and Heather Pearson, specializes in kits filled to the brim with fabulous finds and artistic goodness. If your addiction is vintage ephemera, found objects, beautiful fabric, trendy paper or unique embellishments, we’re here to enable you – oh yeah! Our kits are designed to make you laugh, question social convention and remind us of our past (the good, the bad, the whimsical – even the downright kitschy).

The Girls Behind the Gauche:

Heather Pearson

Born in San Francisco, Heather Pearson is a painted mama to a precocious grade-schooler and harbors a deep love for fashion, bright colors, mid-century design and kitsch, polka dots, art deco and really good espresso.

Amy Wing

Amy Wing is a wife and mom to a lively kindergartner and a middle-schooler. She practices medicine as a physician assistant but would not be complete without a creative outlet. She is typically freshly washed and comfortable, but she is happy to sparkle it up from time to time.

More About Gauche Alchemy:

Discover the secret that every great altered artist, scrapbooker, cardmaker, memory-keeper and mixed media artist knows. Whether you are new to the process or have already discovered the joy and flexibility inherent in a varied stash of inspiring supplies, Gauche Alchemy is here to feed your art and soul – a friendly push from your personal muse!

Each kit is designed to jostle your creativity with unique tidbits, coordinated colors and delicious textures. If you are unaccustomed to working with our unique offerings, GOOD! Our goal is to encourage different ways of thinking about the art that is all around us. We are big fans of “upcycling” and hope to encourage others to join us on our path to “recycle, reuse, repurpose!”

If you’d like to request a particular theme, let us know! We’ll do what we can to accommodate you.
