Fartsy Arts: My artwork explores vintage images, illustrations & photography in combination with strong design elements that are hand painted or laser cut, including retro shapes, words, or upcycled papers & patterns.
My main material is wood but I have been exploring incorporating acrylics for pops of color in some pieces. I work with a varied color palette that stems from a lot of mid century designs & my personal tastes.
To finish my work, I design custom frames to fit the piece or upcycle found frames. I use a laser cutter for the frames & the details that make each piece unique. It's important to me to find a way to use common technology in a new way in order to stand out.
My jewelry is made the same way. I use wood that is hand painted or colorful acrylic for pieces to compliment my artwork & style but add a little flair to those who wear it. Some are basic shapes that I love, like vintage glasses or cowboy boots, & others are mixed media pieces like my art.

'Fun' and 'natural' don't have to be mutually exclusive, and that is reflected in Aromaholic's diverse assortment of products. Wholesome ingredients like essential oils, cocoa butter, avocado oil, locally-sourced beeswax, and organic flavor oils go into each item to provide the finest in bodycare. Aromaholic lip balms are handmade from start to finish; everything is formulated, melted, flavored, poured, and labeled by me. We offer two different types of soap, depending on the variety: some are made using the cold-process method with oils and lye, and others with more delicate scents are produced using an organic soap base.
