Here’s some great information from the Danforth East Arts Fair organizers:
Stella Vincenza Racca, 13, will be displaying her work September 13-14 in East Lynn Park as part of the Youth Booth.
“My work is up-cycling objects that would usually just get thrown out, like old bottle caps, the cuttings from printing paper to make my cards, and old nail polishes,“ says Stella.
“I’m often inspired by paper stores because I love the patterns and textures, though I can never afford them! I also get ideas from vintage jewelry so I try my best to incorporate a bit of that into my work — I like to think the bottle caps are sort of like antique picture frames.“
When she gets older, Stella would like to pursue filmmaking. But she isn’t opposed to being in front of the camera — acting is also a possible career path.
She adds: “I’d like to continue making and selling my work, so (the Danforth East Arts Fair) is a great opportunity to get started!“
Visit Stella and dozens of other exhibitors at East Lynn Park on Sept. 13-14 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
