Fort Lauderdale, Florida
I started crafting as a young child in school. However, I discovered stained glass mosaics in my early 20's which lead me to string art. I began crafting string art projects in my mid 20's.
I focus on string art. But I also work with stained glass mosaics, punch needle, beading bracelets, and painting.
When shopping for craft supplies in person I enjoy getting going to Michael's and Joann's. Hobby Lobby has a great selection of stained glass for my mosaic projects. DMC Embroidery Floss is the thread that is used for my string art kits and creations. For beading supplies I shop online at Beadaholic.com and Caravanbeads.com.
My favorite string art piece is the Eagle that placed second place in an Americana Art Competition! It took me 7 days to make, from prepping the wood to hammering in the nails, and stringing it all up. My favorite mosaic is the American Map piece. The glass was randomly broken up inside a plastic bag forming all different types of shapes. I placed all those shapes together like a puzzle, making sure each fit perfecting with the surrounding pieces. The mosaic came out looking amazing!
String of the Art has been featured in Country Living Magazine, BuzzFeed, Etsy's Editorial List, and I was a featured artist with DMC Embroidery Floss.
