These are products handmade by a local New Mexico Artist that has used recycled materials to create her products. They are original one of a kind pieces.
These upcycled Vintage Metal Paintings are created by Karen Hackett Mogen of khmogen design and are made from vintage found metal pieces that she uses as her canvases to paint her acrylic paintings. She is a professional juried artist here in New Mexico known for her watercolor paintings for many years. She started painting on vintage metal and tin pieces two years ago and loves the combination of the patina of the vintage combined with her painting. These pieces can be hung inside or outdoors.
All original paintings by local New Mexico artist Karen Hackett Mogen. Karen paints on vintage metal pieces that have been found and uses them as her canvas. " I find the patinas and character of old pieces add to my work and need to be viewed rather than thrown out or stored where they can not be appreciated." All pieces are hand painted using high quality acrylic paint and varnished with at least two coats of high quality UV protected acrylic varnish. They are durable and can be hung outdoors but like most art pieces not in direct sunlight.
