I’m Dara Cheek, Hieropice’s principal designer/artist. I’ve been an artist for more years than I care to disclose, and always been obsessed with flora and fauna, hence, they serve as the primary inspiration for my work. I graduated from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston/Tufts University with a degree in Fine Arts (small metals/glass concentration). After that, I’ve been traveling and working, creating new pieces as I get inspired, as with my trip to Tanzania in Fall, 2010 that resulted in our Maasai Beaded line.
I primarily sell my work through my Etsy site (www.etsy.com/shop/hieropice) and at Art/Craft shows in New England. I post about Hieropice’s new items, moments of inspiration, weird junk I find as I wander the world, etc. here on WordPress, and you can also find us on Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, and Myspace. Drop me a line if you have any inquiries, and enjoy the site! Bonjour! Bienvenue! Aloha, and all that!
