The Heart Maine features string in a bright red in the shape of a heart with a piece of leather branded with MAINE.
Nail Art is designed and produced by long time Maine resident, graduate of the Maine College of Art, Heather. Using “up cycled” and repurposed wood as a canvas for art, she gets to do what she loves, spread joy and help the environment all at once. Heather creates images with nails and string. The rustic quality of old wood, contrasted by the fine white and colorful string makes for a striking result. The reflection of light off the stainless steel nails adds an extra shimmer and element of beauty to each piece. Heather enjoys the process of creating of her work. Gathering materials to make each piece takes her into nature; a beloved destination. Adventures to the dump to rescue wood from a non repurposed future, fulfills her scavenger creative soul, and help the environment on a local level.
Her artwork includes the ever popular “Maine Love”, and geometrical designs from interact to simplistic. The common thread of connection is reflected in her work both literally and figuratively.
She hopes you find calm, joy, and a clear environmental conscious from her work.
