{Handmade Designer-Makers} The beautiful art of Geninne Zlatkis | By Yaansoon

Geninne Zaltkis is my number one artist in the world. A resident of the colonial city of Queretaro in Mexico, Geninne is probably the most inspiring artist I have come across so far; her work simply makes me happy, and I am always so amazed by her quality of work.

Geninne’s Art Blog is where  you will find all the amazing things she makes. She seems to have started off by creating illustrations, but in recent years she’s been branching out into other mediums.

Leather jewelry that bear her signature birds come readily to mind (like the brooch below).

In this bracelet (below) Geninne burns leather and applies paint to a piece of leather to create a beautiful and unique cuff bracelet. Her attention to detail, the way she creates her feathered “characters” is so unique and beautiful.

Genine's artIt doesn’t stop at that! Geninne also manages to turn her winged creatures into stamps. She is actually an expert on stamp-carving and has a lovely book titled, “Making an Impression,” a smart title for what I am sure an essential book for all crafters.

Look at this bird, the majestic lines, the detail, the vibe it sends out… not just a shape on a rubber stamp!

GenineThe way Geninne “interprets” Mexico is also so very special and unique, you can see some motifs and shapes, like this cactus stamp (below), but you don’t feel it’s a generic shape, it is a piece of Mexico loved and brought to us by Geninne’s artistic talent.
