My name is Shae Smart and from childhood, I’ve always had the need to create. I believe a single art piece has the ability to empower a personal transformation because art is the embodiment of life. It is my mission with Diamond Fire Arts to add a little more vibrancy, passion and sparkle to life with every brush stroke and pour. I use many different mediums, such as resin, acrylics, and inks. I incorporate natural elements like, semi-precious stones, crystals and metals to allow the observer to feel the energy of each individual piece. Mixing mediums brings the piece to life and gives it its own spirit.
The sparkle and spirit of life inspires me to create. The sound of the crashing ocean, the warmth of the sunlight on my face and the cool glow of moonlight inspires me to develop that same feeling into each of my pieces. Even on the darkest day, there is always a glimmer of hope that shines through.
“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” – Thomas Merton
