Welcome to Artful Wanderlust! We are so glad you stopped by!
Let me introduce myself. I am Karen Sabrsula Long. I am a mixed-media artist that has been in the arts for over 20 years. I started out faux finishing everything from walls, ceilings, cabinets and furniture to now working with metal, stones, as well as many artistic mediums.
My husband, David, has decided to join me on this journey. He is enjoying playing with metal and is a huge help with some of the bigger projects we take on!
I came up with the name Artful Wanderlust while dreaming of being able to travel in our RV and make and sell art and jewelry. Little did we realized that after Harvey in 2017, that reality would be here faster than we had imagined.
In 2018, after just completing repairs on our home, we loaded up our RV and set off for the wild west of Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming. We both had seasonal work within the park. We look forward to returning for our second season in 2019.
We take pride in creating each piece of work by hand and knowing that our customers are getting an excellent quality piece of art.
I am continuously inspired by the colors, shapes and textures of the natural world surrounding me. I appreciate the beauty of the natural world and I observe artistic design in earth's natural resources. I love working with turquoise, jasper, copper and silver, focusing on natural hues and glowing earth tones. My color pallet often reflects natures own color schemes found in lakes, forests, sunsets, etc.
Thanks so much for visiting Artful Wanderlust and supporting hand crafted art!
