Chiara is my long-suffering teena… erm, apprentice, long used to her mother running
off to the craft store, for One More Thing. Eventually, she became curious about
what the heck I was doing with all of those feathers and sequins.
As she grew older and found her own joy in art, she started drawing and crafting
her own work to use as gifts and commissions. Eventually, she started wanting to
help me with my work.
Chiara is working on finding her own style of artwork and mask making. She’s learning
how to build masks so they are both light and strong and so the wearer isn’t confronted
with the evidence of how the piece is made. She’s well used to hearing, “Nope, look,
if you do it like this…” and soon I won’t have a darned thing to teach her. Chiara
is, in fact, teaching me a lot of new techniques made possible in the last few years,
such as 3D printing and laser cutting!
Scroll through Chiara’s designs. Feel free to contact us to commission her for work
on anything you see.
