I am a California mixed media artist and used to have a shop where I sold beads and world textiles. I sell both my work on Etsy along with textiles, jewelry and beads from around the world. This is an example of what I have had in the past. Click on the Visit My Shop button to see what is available now.
Interesting soapstone rock, felted and wrapped and decorated with copper wire. Measures 5″ x 4″ x 3″ and weighs approximately 14.5 oz. Suitable for a décor item, paperweight etc. Soapstone is said to emit a calming energy, stimulating one to release old routines for new loving environments (from http://www.ravencrystals.com/crystals.html). Not a toy for children. From Barbetta Lockart Contemporary Art.
I have been involved with the arts for many years, starting as a jewelry maker back in the early 70s, adding painting, drawing, and mixed media assemblage in the 80s and 90s. I have continued to challenge and entertain myself with the addition of textiles/fiber to my materials repertoire (creating art felt, silk art yardage, handmade wall pieces, runway/costume pieces, etc.) beginning in the 90s, and carrying through to the present fiber of some sort is often included in my contemporary work. I find fiber and fibrous materials of all sorts to be extremely versatile, and often include it in paintings, sculptures and assemblage work. It is so basic; I find working with it very satisfying.
As a contemporary artist, I hope to create work that is interesting, evocative, communicative, and often, unexpected. I find that I am impacted by world events, politics, the human condition, travel/world cultures, friends, music, nature, foolishness, and personal experiences and interests: all eventually find their way into my art. My work is simply the result of a very busy and curious mind that seldom seems to take a day off.
