Take advantage of our special of FREE SHIPPING worldwide for the holidays on Dan Garrick's prints, all based on his originals.

As technology continues to surge forward as the leading medium for communication in the world, one form of human expression cannot be captured in a web browser or emailed between friends.

Painting is the form of expression that still holds true to its fundamental core – it’s reason for existence and it’s secure place in the human experience. Handwork, size, texture and color cannot be replicated as pixels.

I create artwork that captures the attention of the human eye and holds a viewers’ attention with weaving patterns, repetition and line variation that play with perception. Rich line-work and tight paint-strokes achieved through additive and subtractive painting styles weave around the planes of my paintings. I add four-point perspective to capture your eye and control your eye’s movement to a point of light or the point where subject matter, hidden at first to the eye, enters into the viewers’ conscience. My goal is not to over paint, but rather to give your eye much needed rest from the strain of looking at a computer screen or television for long periods of time.

Learn about new micro macrame patterns!

Hi all,

Everytime when I surf the web, I try to find new inspirations or ideas that will iluminate my creativity to design a new OOAK piece of micro-macrame jewelry. I usually think about cultures or nature as part of my inspiration.

The first thing I tried to identify when I started a couple of years ago was how to make a specific pattern for one piece of micro-macrame necklace or bracelet.  Now that I have more experience, and I am committed to help others to learn this beautiful art as part of creativity and relaxation.

I would like to share with you this awesome website that will help begginers or advance artisans...

I hope this site will be helpful for you!

I will be glad to see your comments, ideas, and links that others could find helpful.

Macrame. A New Spin on a Retro Style

That's right....macramé is back! It not just for your grandma’s plant holder or on an old hippie belt anymore, it has become an art used to display high quality semi-precious stones in unique ways. Cabochons, or shaped stones without holes, are often used as the centerpiece of these unique pieces of jewelry. Whether you believe in the healing properties of stones or just like the look/feel of them... macramé jewelry is an innovative new style for all ages.

After the stones are carefully chosen, artisans wrap them with intricate knots around the circumference of the stone. The beauty of macramé is that the stones stay in place without any glue or wire. Cords range anywhere from hemp, cotton, to my favorite; waxed polyester. Linhasita waxed polyester cord gives a clean look to any jewelry, while providing a durable, non-fraying, water-proof piece of jewelry that will last for years to come. 

After the stones are wrapped, the possibilities are endless. Knots come in several forms and shapes. However, the larks head, basic square knot, and half hitch knot are the most common. Varying these knots, along with using different colors, sizes, and numbers, helps to create these elaborate patterns.
Artisan created macramé jewelry has become extremely popular in South America and Europe. It is slowly making its way here to the United States by way of tribal, gypsy, and boho-chic enthusiasts. Jewelry can range anywhere from a simple knotted bracelet to an elaborate spider necklace. The possibilities are endless! The one true element that reigns true to all one-of-a-kind macramé jewelry is that each piece tells a story about their creators and owners. You are literally wearing art around your neck, wrist, or in your ears.
