"The possibilities are endless and I have developed various classes that will ignite an unbridled enthusiasm for this medium in card makers, scrapbook enthusiasts and dabblers in mixed media."
I am Elitia Hart, a South African born metal crafter now living in Calgary, Canada. Having worked with and explored a variety of artistic materials and techniques I found my true medium of expression when introduced to metal sheet embossing in 1999. I create one-of-a-kind metal embossed art pieces including custom made pewter mirror frames, boxes, journals etc…frankly, I stick metal on pretty much anything that stands still long enough. For the past 18 years I have enjoyed sharing my knowledge and technique through teaching introductory and advanced metal art classes at my home studio in Calgary, Canada, in retail stores, and for social groups in Canada, US, Mexico and France. My philosophy on metal art mark making is that “more is more and less is a bore” and “if it makes a mark, it is a tool”. This craft offers endless possibilities and I am constantly evolving by developing new classes that will ignite an unbridled enthusiasm for this medium in card makers, scrapbook enthusiasts and dabblers in mixed media.
