Deirdre fell in love with the whole idea of altered art after seeing some domino jewelry online. She started making her own altered art dominos, and eventually became obsessed with artist trading cards, inchies, altered art, and altered art jewelry. Deirdre says, “I always hope to keep challenging myself and learning as I go”.
Peace has been doodling, glueing, stitching and crafting as long as she can remember. She is self-taught in whichever art seems interesting at the moment, and inspired by an insatiable desire to make something from whatever is available. Peace is proof that creativity can spring out of anyone with ideas and motivation, even with little or no formal schooling or background. She proudly proclaims, “If I can, anybody can!”
