When Stephanie is creating pieces for Untamed Arte, her goal is to make something special and different. Each one-of-a-kind piece is just that – unique and eye-catching. Untamed Arte is all about trying new things and thinking outside the box.
You’re going to want to explore all the pieces in the Untamed Arte booth at the Etsy Dallas Jingle Bash on November 10 at Fashion Industry Gallery in Dallas. We caught up with Stephanie recently for an interview.
Is your shop offering anything new, special or different at the 2018 Jingle Bash?
We are trying out new designs of our resin work. We are also offering 15 percent off.
What is your favorite part of prepping for an upcoming show?
Gathering materials to make new inventory is the best feeling. Completing orders gives me such an adrenaline rush.
What makes the Bash special for you?
Meeting our sales goal is always a great feeling but what matters is the feedback that we get. We want to feel like we’re creating a product that people enjoy and want to take home.
Is there a story behind your shop’s name?
Untamed Arte came about from not knowing what to name the business. There isn’t one type medium or main style that we do. We really enjoy experimenting and pushing the limits.
What is a typical day of work like for you?
A typical day consists of filling orders. Reviewing my planner. For every task I check off, I add 10 more. I do a lot of research on how I can improve my craft and what new materials I can use.
How would you describe your shop?
I would describe it as fun and colorful. And a place where you just want to hang out for a while and really look at all the texture and pigments used in each piece.
Art has always been a passion for Stephanie. She knew it was what made her happy and that’s what pushed her to finally take it from a hobby to a business. She works with her family on Untamed Arte and she said she is excited about the atmosphere at the Jingle Bash. We are too!
