E. Marie Qantaqua's Profile

About

So who is E. Marie Qantaqua???

My store: GypsyWolf ArtEscapes. I named it so for personal reasons that I hope you see in my art...as it inspires me everyday. I may be disabled (Severe Crohn's Disease), but I work on ways that I can still bring my art to others. There is pride lost when one becomes disabled...and pride gained in still working to rising above it.

I am Roma. Gypsy. Of this I am PROUD. My husband, a Native American, gave me the family name Qantaqua, which means wolf. A family name that began with him...and which he has now given to his daughter and myself. I'm proud to call myself a Qantaqua. Art...yes! Naturally! Escapes. The escape I feel each time I create. The escape someone feels when they experience the artwork of another. Escape into my heritages...both of them. The one that I was given by life and the one that was given through love…

The escape someone feels when they experience the artwork of another. Escape into my heritages...both of them. The one that I was given by life and the one that was given through love. I try to infuse this free and gypsy spirit into each item I create.

I enjoy ACEOs/ATC art, vodka, weapons, tattoos, music, kicking Crohn's Disease's ass, crocheting, mixed media art canvas work, trains (or train tracks), piercings, wolves, funky socks, gypsy/boho-esque, YARN, postcards, wrist and arm cuffs, burnt grilled cheese, horribly sarcastic humor, photography, the NYC subway, hopeful street art, converse, road trips, and anything to do with pin-up art... as well as being a Mom and a wife.

My art reflects the many sides of myself...and although a professional photographer, I branch into and enjoy MANY mediums. I love the collaborative nature of some of my stuff along with my husband. It may be eclectic. It may be varied. But it is inspired and fun! If my shop intrigues you, come back often...my many mediums will be making appearances soon...as I slowly work on and add more and more items...

ENJOY my foray into the world of Etsy...and glimpses into my mind, soul, and spirit via my artwork...
