Hi everyone! I’m Lawrence Ross and I am Let’s Craft’s resident string artist. I run a small string art kit business called String of the Art, where I have sold thousands of string art kits all over the world.
Following law school graduation, my dyslexia got in the way of passing the Florida Bar Exam. After five attempts and fails, I knew this hurdle could not hinder my success. Through the adversity, my passion for the arts helped keep me going. It led me to closing the law books and bringing my dream of String of the Art to life! Now, several years later, I have taught thousands of new string artists all over the world how to master the craft through my kits.
String art has led me to wonderful opportunities. I created an exclusive string art kit for Starbucks, which is currently being sold in their three Starbuck Roastery Reserves. I am also a string artist for Primitive By Kathy (“PBK”). Many of my PBK designs have been sold in department stores like Nordstrom’s and Dillard’s. I have pieces hanging in hotels and I have won awards for my string art.
I’ve been creating art since I was a child. My work has ranged from children’s book illustration, cartooning, graphite photo-realism renderings, to a line of children’s clothing and accessories called “Sunshine Kids.” I work predominantly in the digital medium, creating pieces that incorporate a variety of elements such as airbrush, acrylic, ink, oil, etc. The digital images provide an opportunity for reprint on canvas or print in a variety of sizes – I love the flexibility of the medium. I also enjoy working with acrylic, vintage/salvage. Creating brings me great joy and peace. Connecting and sharing my work with others is incredibly fulfilling. My work has been featured in a variety of local publications such as So Scottsdale, Scottsdale Independent News, Art in Phoenix, The Jewish News and Jewish Life Magazine.
Hello everyone! My name is Jordan and I have been working with glass since graduating college. I am a lawyer by day and a glass artist by night. My love for stained glass mosaics started several years ago on a vacation. I walked into an art gallery and was blown away by a stained glass mosaic that was for sale. Unfortunately, I couldn't afford it, so I instead attempted to replicate it. As you might know, your first attempt is not always going to be your best. My version didn't look like the gallery piece, but I loved the crafting process and quickly became a glass hobbyist.
Working in law is very time consuming. One day, I would like to be able to sell my pieces and have more of an online presents to show off my work. However, for the past few years I have only had the time to make the mosaics for friends, family, and myself.
As you can see from my profile picture, some of my favorite mosaics to make are sports related. What fan wouldn't love an art piece with their favorite team's logo. I live in Pittsburgh, so naturally my favorite piece is the Steelers Stained Glass Mosaic.
Hi, I’m Rachel! I’m a new mom and loving every minute of it. I live in Florida with my family and two adorable cats. Before my daughter was born, I was trying to imagine what her room would look like. I spent many hours on Pinterest searching for inspiration.
Since I was a little girl, I have always liked butterflies and hearts. I knew I wanted that to be a theme for my little girl’s room. While searching Pinterest, I saw paper cut art. I was intrigued by how simple yet pretty it was. The paper appeared 3-D, it was colorful, and it was beautiful in a shadow box frame. This was my “lightbulb” moment! The next day I purchased the necessary crafting supplies to make this myself. After crafting the art, I hung a few in my daughter’s nursey and they looked incredible. Friends and family who saw my art asked me to make it for them. The art is so much fun to make, I can’t stop making them. Since they do take some time to make, I have turned this into a somewhat small hobby business.
My dream of decorating my daughter’s nursey has now turned into something that I could have never imagined. My goal is to turn this word of mouth small hobby business into something bigger. Stay tuned!
Hey crafters! My name is Mardi and I am Let's Craft's painted signs artist. I've been a crafter all my life, creating many different types of art. Starting when I was a child, any arts and crafts kit I got my hands on, I had to create. Over the years, I've worked on needlepoint, cross stitching, knitting, ceramic pottery, stained glass mosaics, beading, and painting. Working with all these different types of crafts has allowed me to be very creative. Painting is a newer craft hobby I discovered and I absolutely love it. My electronic cutting machine allows me to paint custom signs for my house and for my friends. The creativity and possibilities are endless. Read my blog posts on all the painted sign creations, here on Let's Craft.
