PurpleGurl8's Shop Announcement

I'm a native San Antonio folk artist who works primarily with recycled items. With a flair for turning trash into treasure, I incorporate rescued junkyard glass, used paper products and scrap materials into my pieces to create something interesting and unique. While working on my creations, I don't worry over flaws and imperfections, but rather embrace them as part of the overall charm, character... and uniqueness of each piece.

I love whimsical eye candy and my inspirations have been Jeannie’s bottle, kalideoscopes, stained glass art, my beautiful childhood marbles, my dad's artwork, crystal trinkets, things that glow, deep saturated colors, glittery, sparkly things, and all things Wonka.

I feel that creating this type of artwork is what I was meant to do, and I am delighted to have various opportunities to serve my soul cake to the public.

I would like to thank my mother for her endless love and support, my father for the inherited ability and love of finding free treasures ~ and God for giving me eyes to see.
