I'm so happy with my pyrography portrait of the tree. I am beyond impressed with the artistic talent, and I'm proud to give the newlyweds a custom, personalized gift. Shipping was fast, too. Would definitely buy again, and recommend to a friend.
In this shop you will find personalized items that could be used for any event at any point of your life. Handmade by Shirley Hooper.
Shirley Hooper is a pyrographer and mixed media artist. She is originally from Bogota, Colombia, born into a family of artists, including dancers, musicians, painters and crafters. Her artistic process began as a child while living in Miami, Florida. She was exposed to the various forms of art after enrolling in art classes with famous local and international artists. After several years of study, she began exhibiting her work in Miami's famous Coral Gables Art Tour.
In addition to art school, she also attended Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Arts program where she studied and became a chef de cuisine. Her career in culinary took her from fine dining restaurant 1500 Degrees in Miami from 2008 to the Arterra fine dining in the Del Mar Marriott in 2011. During that time she met her husband and was blessed with two children, a girl and a boy.
At present, her primary source of inspiration for her richly diverse media is her family and nature. While visiting family in Julian a little over a year ago, she immediately became enchanted by the unique small town feeling and the love of art she found in this town. She felt Julian was the right place to enrich and evolve her talent and passion for pyrography. Immediately after moving to Julian, she began working on some pieces in pyrography. Although connecting with pyrography only a couple of years ago, it has become her primary source of art. However, she still creates pieces in acrylics and watercolors as well as crafts such as crochet and jewelry-making.
