Our Dream Doer this Friday is Tejae Floyde…artist
Tejae is living her dream and I salute her today! She was a guest on FAMM Live radio yesterday. It was a magical interview with inspiring words of encouragement for budding artists. “Be yourself. Be proud of your art. Don’t imitate. Don’t be a second rate someone else. Be a first rate you!”
I love her encased hearts the best…encased hearts are artistically handcrafted by Tejae. Great care is taken to provide a cherished keepsake and memorable work of art including your special message. Capture special moments with a gift from the heart. celebrate an event, an anniversary, an upcoming wedding or graduation, a birthday, the arrival of a baby, hearts are a precious way to remember a passing of a loved one. Tejae also designs a variety of single hearts, hinged hearts and memorial hearts. Buy one for someone special in her shop.
Tejae grew up surrounded by artists; “My parents painted, sculpted, and hand crafted jewelry. I’m mostly self-taught, though they were all a huge influence. I’ve been an artist my entire life.”
My art is infused with the soulful connections I have to the past. The subtle patterns, layered colors and romantic vintage feel is no accident. Most of my keepsakes are sculpted from polymer clay. They are embellished with a variety of small handtools, or stamps, gently aged with paint, and cured in my trusty toaster oven. Other times I create digital art to be transferred onto wood or polymer pieces. My charms and metal pieces are created in polymer clay or jewelers wax, then molded and made into art pieces using the lost wax process. Charms are cast in .925 sterling silver. Other pieces are cast in bronze or brass. –from Tejae’s bio
