Missy Guisto

 Artwork - Paintings - Steampunk - Jewelry - Original Design Dolls and More

Missy Guisto is a mixed media artist, an assemblage artist, as well as a traditional artist.  Her creative inspiration comes from a force far greater than her own.  Her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother were always sewing, crafting (a broad term) or junk collecting.  Education comes though as many different means as there are artists.  She has attended many workshops along with formal training to explore many techniques and styles.

She has a growing interest in using a Wabi-Sabi philosophy when creating art from found and discarded objects and from nature.  Wabi-Sabi is flea markets, aged wood, ricepaper.  It celebrates cracks and crevices and all the other marks that time, weather and living leaves behind.  Through Wabi-Sabi, we learn to embrace liver spots, rust, and frayed edges, and the march of time they represent. This runs through all of her work.

She has always enjoyed sewing and quilting.  She loves antique quilts, fabrics and buttons. They are used extensively in her unique designer dolls.
