Creepy and cute is what sets Artisans A Go Go apart from the pack. Read on to find out what inspires this artisan of head wear.
I love the subject matter you’ve chosen for your hair accessories. There is something great about a frilly hair clip juxtaposed with a skull. How did you get started with your business?
I have always been an artist. I am inspired by anything that has a form of beauty. An odd fusion from images of “The Golden Era” Jazz musicians such as Billie Holiday and a new found love for color through the late artist Frida Kahlo are what gave me inspiration to create my current pieces.
Day of the Dead skull hair clip fascinator Fascinators, mini top hats, etc… are a huge trend right now. How do you stay competitive with so many artisans out there?I dont really follow other artisans work to see what the competition is doing. I create what I like and what i am inspired by with the culture around me.
You live in Austin which is a very funky city by Texan standards. How does the city’s culture affect your work?
I love Austin, born and raised, I like to say I am an endangered species, which if you’ve ever lived in Austin, you would know what a big deal that is. Austin is very culturally diverse and accepting, art is everywhere here and local businesses a people embrace it.
