Unique Steampunk~ Dieselpunk~ Cottage Chic Designs
'Live Steamy' is my Steampunk design brand. I focus primarily on making casual Steampunk/Dieselpunk that can be worn just about anywhere! I make nearly everything out of junk I either have in my art room, collect from various places, buy at the thrift store or find on the ground. I do costume Steampunk as well and other odds and ends.
I found Steampunk a few years ago when I lived in Denver and I was mostly attracted by the use of so many different metals being mixed into one piece. Beyond that I loved the idea of taking old junk and turning it into fashion art. As I learned more about this subculture I just kept falling more and more in love! Clocks and gears and rust and nuts, corsets and bustles and goggles. It was a new world opening up before me and I couldn't wait but to dive right in.
At first I was only making stuff for myself. Just tinkering around really and letting my ideas flow. But when I met Travis, my now husband, he loved my work. He went on and on about design and balance and the uniqueness of my work. Travis gave me the confidence I needed to get out into the world and start selling my work. It is truly amazing to make something you love so much and realize that other people love it too! I could never ask for more than for even just one other person to see my work and truly fall in love with it. I don't paint or draw the type of things that make people have true emotional reactions over. I'll never write a symphony that makes people cry they are so touched. But if I can make just one piece that someone in the world can wear and feel amazing in than I will feel like I have reached a creative greatness in my own right. My art touches me, excites me, fills me up. All I can wish is to share that with others. :)
