Art That Moves
Christine Pensa’s shop on Etsy has a cohesive clean and crisp look to it. Stark white contrasts with bold black, her printed lines defined by sureness and strength. Her work with children shines through along with her passion for the feminine mystique. Many of her products are functional, transforming the utilitarian jobs of a kitchen towel or a bread bag into an act of beauty. Others are whimsical, like her movable paper dolls:
Christine came to her art after a successful career working in Canadian politics. An art course opened her world in new ways where she was able to explore and express spirituality, a sense of humor, and joy through her designs. Her by-line is “OM for your home”, conjuring images of peace and stability. Art That Moves, her business name, could mean many things: the jointed paper dolls, for example, or the home textiles that move from one place to another: to the table, from a couch to a chair, from a basket to a peg… A hand carrying, placing, wiping, using… moving that object around. But, my thinking is that Christine would like her work to move YOU in some way: to bring you peace, joy, serenity…
Christine joined TAFA in March of 2013 and has been a joy! She is upbeat, fun and helpful. You will do well by connecting with her, too! Visit Christine and Art That Moves on her TAFA profile where you will find her links on the web and more about her:
