Mary Anita's Profile

About

An 80s child who loves people, live music, books, irony, and learning about God.
In addition, I love to eat, learn new things, climb trees and rocks, and take risks--adventures.

Concerning art, I believed for most of my life that art could only be a hobby and not a life pursuit for me. For this reason, my involvement with a vibrant community of artists all through undergraduate and graduate school had only been indirect--I would rejoice in their work, but my only contribution to art was my vintage and, sometimes, quirky wardrobe. However, In December of 2013, I responded to a tugging in my heart, having watching the film, "Saving Mr. Banks," to develop the artistic gifts God placed inside of me. It redirected my thinking to believe in the critical importance of finding meaning and purpose in His gifting instead of what society says about, "starving artists"…

I've come to believe that one should pursue the areas of life that one is gifted in, to find joy and meaning there, and to leave daily sustenance in God's very capable hands. "Consider the lilies of the field..."

I have always had an eye for vintage and the eclectic and an aptitude for interior design. So in 2014, I began to paint furniture to complement my ability to find unique, vintage selections.

Although in 2009 I intended my shop, Artifakt, to reflect only jewelry and wooden jewelry boxes, I will now incorporate furniture and accessories.

My prayer for you is that you might be inspired by my story and my work. Enjoy the current furniture selections as well as my most recent accessories. Stay tuned for more!

Blessings,

Mary Anita Kumar
