Discovering the Muse Within – Quiet Liar T-shirts

Meeting the artisans at the Langley Artisan Christmas Fair on December 11 is part of the fun of shopping at a fair. You get special one on one attention as you carefully select your one-of-a-kind gifts for those special people in your life whether it be for your mom, wife, a hostess gift or a special teacher there is something for everyone on your list. Some of the artisans make jewellery, some create beautiful art from yarn that you can wear, some create exciting and unusual photograph cards or paint beautiful landscapes and others wonderful primitive art. The room will be bursting with creativity in many art forms and perhaps it will even waken the muse within you.

Today I am profiling the youngest of the artisans participating in the fair, Marena Skinner of Quiet Liar T-shirts. At 18 years she is already a creative artist and entrepreneur. She loves to draw and design –  looking for something to do during those long lazy days of summer  her and a friend came up with an idea to create a project of designing their own unique t-shirts. She created the design and then painted it onto the t-shirt. She was not aware at first that this was something that would turn into an actual business until she went back to school and friends were amazed at her design and after only one time wearing her t-shirt she received numerous requests to purchase an original shirt. That lead to many more totally original designs of her own which she hand painted onto the shirts. Marena says that some people call her designs weird and random, however you will never see the exact t-shirt on anyone else as all of her designs are one-of-a-kind. She loves to make shirts for people who like to be different and stand out. Most people get a print shop to screen print their shirts, Marena creates hers by hand-painting and silkscreen. What Marena loves most about her art is seeing the final product and having someone buying it cause the think they are unique.
Marena’s dream for the future and goal is to produce t-shirts and album art for bands. She is happy to do custom orders, just let her know what you want and she will create it!
Be sure to check out Quiet Liar T-shirts and meet this budding young artisan when you visit the Artisan Christmas Fair where you can get a creatively designed t-shirt for the teen in your life.
