    Guest Designer: Julie Zarate

    Filed under Art Projects, Guest Designers

    juliezarate.jpgThe amazing and inspiring Julie Zarate is the October Guest Designer for Alpha Stamps. Julie took matchbox blanks and created stunning shrines out of them and we are very excited to share her creations with you!

    “The art that I create is an amalgam of influences from Michaelangelo to Yepes, covering an array of genres and styles, ultimately fusing them to create something contemporary and iconic, yet timeless and infinitely familiar.

    dsc_5669_close200.jpgMy early years were shaped by popular culture and the empowerment of women, thus most of my works reflect this. However, I am more interested in the journey and new discoveries of creating a new piece of work than I am with the finished product. This is usually how I discover something new, either in the execution or the medium. As my work continues to evolve, the strong undercurrent of taking risks, confidence and the sheer desire to create is ever present.”

    You can see other shrines that Julie created, as well as what items she used in her artwork, here.
