I am Debbie, the left-handed artist behind daart, creator of etched metal art that blends old with new, Retro with a touch of Modern. Metal with it's reflective properties, adds a textural richness which changes with the light throughout the day. Metal adds a collected, timeless look to your decorating which is interesting and engaging.
The art I create for daart starts with my original designs which I permanently etch into metal sheet using techniques from the old days of plate printing dating back to 1513. Acid was used then and is still being used today but I prefer the safer process of metal salts paired with a power supply. The metal salt bath can be used over and over therefore making the process much more eco-friendly.
Etched metal is enduring, bringing beauty to walls with lasting quality that can be enjoyed through the years. I create all of the items in my shop from start to finish, attending to every detail. I am passionate about quality and ensure that your art is finished and ready to hang in your home as soon as you receive it.
I am currently working on traditional frames which will be added shortly. Please check back as I will be creating in my country studio (yes, country in New Jersey, just ask the cows across the street)!
Generally any etched piece can be paired with any frame style. If you do not see a combination you are interested in please don't hesitate to contact me!
