SunArtStudioShop's Shop Announcement

"Play is the exaltation of the possible." ~ Martin Buber

Hello and welcome! And thank you for your interest. I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy creating it!

I enjoy working in a wide variety of media and currently my main focus has been creating jewelry redesigns (altered art). I greatly enjoy redesigning jewelry as finding just the right components to collage together into one-of-a-kind pieces is exciting! Another focus is embossed metal art (repujado). Working in 36 gauge metal sheets, I emboss my linear designs which I then embolden with blocks of bright enamel paint. I developed this bold style of embossed metal from the idea to keep the designs clear and colorful which results in a stained glass quality in its simplicity. My favorite motifs include the sun, sunflower, and heart. My other creative outlets include handcrafted metalwork jewelry, mosaics, painting, photography, and mixed media. I'm a regular participant of the First Saturday Arts Market, a monthly mini art festival in the Houston Heights! It makes me happy when my work brings happiness to others!

Thank you for visiting!
