Showing up and Making it Stick!
That's what I do in my light-filled studio at the Tip Top Media and Arts Building in White River Junction VT. Whether it's painting on magnetic surfaces that become movable art that you interact with, or creating delightful colors and textures for you to create collage without glue, I paint so that you can play!
Fraglets® Art is an art form of magnetic assemblages, placed and layered on surfaces that will hold the painted magnetic shapes in place. The art form was designed by a Vermont artist during her five- residency as a therapeutic artist at a major medical center. At the bedside, she was challenged as to how to inspire creativity, reduce stress, create beauty, and make it fun and accessible to people of all abilities. The result was magnetized shapes, hand painted and cut into organic shapes that can be arranged, layered, and rearranged to your heart’s content.
Metal surfaces hold them in place. With Fraglets Art, you needn’t know what you are going to do before you start, because you can experiment, undo, and not worry about making a mistake. Make your art permanent by photographing or framing it, or keep it flexible by letting the pieces reflect your changing moods and style.
Like any creative process, you can easily get into THE ZONE, learn to go with the flow, and see where it takes you. Work with what you’ve got and piece it together as the spirit moves you.
Each piece is hand-painted in the artist’s studio in Vermont.
Because everything you work with is unique, what you create is even more so. Just like you. Find your mettle!
