In late 2013, I returned home from St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands. I had just spent the last six months pursuing a dream and now it was time for something completely different. So, in early 2014, I took the leap and decided to pursue a career as a full time artist. This is when Nova Luxe Studios was born.
It was when I was a child that my grandmother taught me how to wire wrap jewelry and ornaments and such. And, over the years, I had put this to use at a variety of small flea markets and crafts shows. However, upon my return from the USVI, I discovered that I needed a few new display racks, and it seemed natural they be shaped like trees… and this is where the trees began to take root.
Since then, I have all but abandoned the jewelry side of things, instead moving more and more into the world of wire sculpture. I love finding old objects to stick trees to – frames, mirrors, rocks, even roofing shingles! You just never know what I might find.
Each tree is it’s own random creation and is completely different from any other I have ever made. I never know quite where each creation will take me at the start. I just start and let the wire choose.
