February Artist Spotlight: Verónica Vivanco

Verónica Vivanco

How did you start doing art?

When I was a child, I learned to crochet and tatting, and at 12 years old I was taught how to sew at school.

What is your preferred medium?
Fabrics and threads.

What drives your creative spirit these days?
The movies, music, other artists, and my daughters. I like that my daughters see me creating things, they learn and have a good example from me.

How does reuse play a part in your art?
For me it is very fun to make my designs with unusual materials, I like to experiment on different materials and create new things.

What compels you to donate to ACR?
ACR is one of my favorite stores, I always find something that I like.

Do you have a favorite ACR find? What did you do with it?
I have, several: a papel picado samples album: (I used it to make the base of the dress, inspired by the movie Coco), paintings, paper mache skulls, Coca Cola bottle tops, and light cables. I found some coffee bean bags and removed the threads, painted them, and knit a dress inspired by Spiderman.
