Let's get to know the Arternia artists!
Lisa Rae Hansen works out of the UK under the name @ibreaktoys. Lisa's work is clearly influenced by the pop culture of her youth and a great sense of humor. Lisa sculpts are masterfully done. She has the ability to elegantly reduce a form to its essential elements. Every detail of her sculpts seem carefully dialed in. Lisa's paint jobs are also amazing. Her paint is smooth as glass and the smallest details are spot on.
Our only concern about having Lisa's work in the show is that a fight might break out over who gets to buy her stuff:-). Go check her work and follow her - @ibreaktoys.

#marchmeetthemaker Day 7 "How it's made" I have a few different processes from sculpting, molding, casting, painting. Here's a wee snippet of sculpting progress from today. I'm making a mini version of one of my characters. I start with tinfoil squeezed into a basic shape, build over it in Sculpey, then build on top with a 2 part epoxy clay. Once it sets I carve back in to refine the forms. I spray grey primer to see imperfections and go back over sanding. I sculpt details in stages to keep control of the forms. #sculpting #artist#handmade#characterart#toyart#arttoys#ibreaktoys#lisaraehansen
#marchmeetthemaker Day 1, You.
This is me and my husband and our gorgeous girls. We live in Scotland. I am Scottish, he is Canadian, the girls are a bit of both. I trained in applied arts at Edinburgh College of Art. I like making characters. He makes Whisky. The girls make us happy. I think about making art all the time. He is my artistic sounding board. He is patient. I drink a lot of tea. I like toys #arttoyculture#artoys#ibreaktoys#lisaraehansen#scottishart
