2021 Artist Marketplace Spotlight
I am a local artist who has taken a life-long hobby - drawing and painting - and started creating furniture and home decor items that I have refinished and hand-painted with designs ranging from fairy tales to nature. I find suitable pieces at thrift stores, sand them down, and consider each piece before I decide what it will become. A lot of inspiration comes from books and nature. I would describe my style as leaning towards art nouveau/art deco and the whimsical. Many pieces depict elements from nature, stories such as Alice in Wonderland, Japanese art, and geometry. I use acrylic paints, and finish items with polycrylic for durability. Each piece is unique and functional art: Yes, it can be used!
