About Us

CREATOR OF WILDFEATHER ARTSY, ME, MARY RUSH

I am an artist and author who has a passion for color, painting, hiking, and the natural world around us. I'm on a mission to catalyze people to express their unique creativity and style. 

 

 

HOW WILDFEATHER ARTSY CAME TO BE

I Awoke to a Dream

In November 2018, I awoke one morning remembering a dream about designing clothing. I missed designing clothing and making all the patterns. I had to start again. In this shop, though, I don't make the patterns. I let a manufacturer do that. I design according to the clothing they offer. I work with manufacturers whose values align with my own.

WHY I CREATED WILDFEATHER ARTSY

I founded Wildfeather Artsy to have a fun place to offer my artsy wearables and home decor, separate from my fine art website. I’m on a mission to support others’ unique styles of expression through the way they dress and style their home.

Color! We must return to color. Why must beige, gray, black, and other neutral colors be the mainstay of our lives and touted as good taste? Meanwhile, using color is snubbed and jeered as poor taste?

Consider nature in the Spring and Summer, the time of growth and blooming. IT is ALL about COLOR! Bust out, my friend! Break free from the mundane! Color. Character. Flaunt your flair in your wardrobe, how you carry yourself, and design your living space.

 

MY BACKGROUND

Creativity Catalyst

My background is all about being a catalyst to help others in their creative journey. I developed and led various painting workshops revolving around self-discovery and the creative process since 1992, when I discovered my creative side.

I wrote a book called INTENTivity, designed to help people in their self-discovery path through life using intention and creativity. Find the ebook on Amazon.

 

Creativity to the Rescue!

I believe we can avert problems in our personal lives and the collective if we allow our creative side to have space. The expression has to come out in some form. The healthiest form of expression is seated in the heart and what it wants to express. Our culture praises math and science over the arts. The arts make each of us unique. I hope to provide the space for the unique expression of your character at Wildfeather Artsy.

 

Clothing Design

Since allowing my creative side to express itself, it has come out in many forms. Clothing design is one of them. I began making patterns and sewing silk cocktail dresses and casual-dressy wear after attending a couple of classes at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. Flat Patternmaking enthused my muse.

 

Corporate Job

I worked a full-time corporate job while doing all of this. As I continued to delve into my creativity, my purchasing assistant position flourished from the ideas generated on how to make my job run smoother. I soon began teaching my fellow employees how to be more creative, too. Then, the Global 2000 company created a position just for me - Creativity Consultant. In that appointment, I taught employees from New York City to Hartford to Hollywood how to be more creative to produce bottom-line results.

 

Living My Best Artsy Life!

I live a full-on creative lifestyle. I paint, hike, read, write, design artsy clothing and home decor, and discover more about myself every day. And I love it! I want you to live a wonderful, colorful, and creative life, my friend.
