She Turns Furniture Into Art

Lauretta Lowell, Assemblage Artist

My home is full of my wall art and sculptures and I was running out of room. So I decided to start turning my functional furniture into art too.  When people see my Frida Kahlo Chair they are blown away!  Everyone needs furniture, so why not buy furniture that’s art?  It nurtures our soul to have it in our homes.

After surviving two strokes and a brain tumor in 2001, I was forced give up my corporate marketing work and change priorities.  In 2003, I moved to Palm Desert, CA and set up a small art studio in my garage to help  with my recovery.  My art is now my passion, and my business is called Whimsical Curiosities.  I mix antique and vintage findings, producing assemblage sculptures, shrines, wall art, jewelry, mosaics and now furniture with the intention to capture your curiosity, make you smile and feel you are experiencing something you have never seen before.  My creations are considered Eco Friendly Art, made with recycled items.

In the past seven years, I’ve curated art exhibits, managed galleries, and contributed my whimsical, thought provoking assemblage art to many Southern California venues including Fine Art Festivals in Santa Barbara, Brentwood, Calabasas, Malibu and Hermosa Beach where she has won several awards.
