Please welcome @craftsbycarrot to the Florida CraftArt community!

Veronica De La Fuente is a Venezuelan born artist living in Miami, Fla. she has always loved arts and crafts, and during the pandemic she decided to do something to make people feel happy during such difficult times. She founded Crafts by Carrot, a name inspired in her red locks, and created a collection of decorative wall hanging hearts made of clay and acrylics.

Each piece is made to convey a message of love and serve as a reminder to keep dreaming and hoping for the best. Spirituality plays a big part in the crafting of these hearts; some have religious symbols, while others include nature’s elements as a secret source of inspiration. Veronica’s art combines some of the most vibrant aspects of her native country and the city she lives in now: lively colors, organic shapes, and a rich repertoire of textures and details. Her motivation is to bring joy through art and color.

We are so excited to share Veronica’s story and art here in St. Pete, and we hope you can see her work in person soon!

Every exhibit we host comes with programming designed to elevate themes within fine craft art and educate the public. For our current exhibit, Art of the Garden, we partnered with the Ikebana St. Petersburg Chapter 65 to reveal tips and tricks on the art of Ikebana flower arranging, a Japanese craft. Here are some shots of the finished flower arrangements and the lovely Ikebana members who created them. Thank you so much for your collaboration!

We will be sharing the full program on our Youtube in the near future.

Check this out, it's Volunteer Appreciation Month! We truly celebrate our volunteers year 'round, and throughout the month of April we are going to present the many ways volunteers help make Florida CraftArt the magical creative community that so many visitors from around the world experience and return to year after year.

We appreciate and thank our Board of Directors who are all volunteers, gallery and festival volunteers, and all the volunteers in between that provide helping hands in ways that are vital to our operation.

Pictured here are volunteers Becky, Jane, and Priscilla, and Julia and Hilary - who are now staff but came to us originally as volunteers - during the 24th Annual CraftArt Festival.

We encourage you to get out an volunteer! Even volunteer with us!
