Welcome to Twisted Hippie Studios A Little Hippie with a Twist
For well over 20 years I have loved old furniture, well made and well loved yesteryear items. Finding these treasures inspires me and bringing them back to life is so rewarding. I see value in each piece I purchase and restore. Each piece adds character to our homes and brings a warmth that “box” store furniture can’t. I often wonder what stories these pieces would tell. I have painted walls to look like a Tuscan Villa and floors to look like marble all with a simple can of paint. It is one of the most rewarding activities I do. When you create a handcrafted piece or restore a piece and add it to your surroundings, your house has now become a home filled with the love put into every piece with a new story to tell.
I have enjoyed creating from faux Tuscan walls to faux marble floors, painting my own paintings for my walls, weaving wall hangings to working on macrame. Creating a Home that is unique filled with handcrafted items, second hand repurposed and restored finds.
Everyone if given the chance has a creative side, we simply need to release the fear and dive in. You never know the beautiful things you can create for your own home unless you try. I use A Makers’ Studio products because they are green and non toxic, all are water based. I don’t have to worry about toxic fumes around myself or my pets.
I love paint, chalk paint, ink, acrylics and pretty much anything that has to do with artistic designs, decorating or redecorating. I enjoy the simple art of handcrafting, whether it is furniture, walls, floors or jewelry it is a relaxing and rewarding process.
Create with passion, expressive inspiration and most of all create what you love. Trust the process. I am doing what I love and Loving what I do.
