Texas-based mixed media artist Maricela Sanchez uses her creativity and craftsmanship to break down barriers between art and daily life. To Maricela Sanchez, art is multi-faceted and all-encompassing.
Maricela has built her professional art career over the past 35 years. She works as a fine artist and a design artist but doesn’t limit her creativity to just one area. She explores all artistic avenues, experimenting with a variety of materials to fully express her creativity while embracing the process.
Her paintings, prints, installations, sculptures, and mixed media pieces often take organic forms, intuitively striking a balance of nostalgia and anticipation, sophistication and sass, ambiguity and clarity. Maricela’s deep passion and innovative spirit are reflected in her work. Her art is owned by the public, private, and museum collections.
In addition to her fine art and design career, Maricela is an innovator and entrepreneur. In 2012, Maricela pioneered the path of intricate cutout pattern luxury dog crates by seamlessly merging the aesthetic and practical into her Bespoke Crates and Gates product line. Here she combined her love of art and her love of animals. Working closely alongside craftsmen, she developed fully-functional, art-infused pet products that enhance the homes and lifestyles of clients around the United States.
With the growth of her fur family, she needed a design solution to contain her four-legged friends. There were no options available on the market at that time, therefore Maricela did what she does best: innovate. She created her first art-inspired pet crate and a dog gate. Soon clients commissioned her for other items, which helped Maricela expand her line with more design options for dog steps, dog playpens, window panels, decorative panels, and outdoor games.
Although other companies have since followed in this trailblazer’s footsteps, Maricela is still leading the way in creating beautiful, quality products that enhance your home and lifestyle.
