Maya was nice enough to tell us a little bit about herself and her work:
I have been doing creative things my whole life. It is part of who I am. I have experimented and tried many different types of media but pyrography is what I am most interested in. I was introduced to pyrography about 10 years ago but just opened my Etsy shop a year ago. Pyrography is the art of decorating wood or other materials with burn marks. It is also known as pokerwork or wood burning. Pyrography means "writing with fire", from the Greek "pur" (fire) and "graphos" (writing).
Everything around me gives me inspiration. But I enjoy the intricacy of celtic knot and artwork the most. I am continually amazed by the complexity and beauty of each design. I would like to do more of that in my future work. I am also very inspired and motivated by custom orders. I love to hear what customers come up with for gifts for the special people in their lives and I love being a part of that.

We hope you enjoyed Maya's work as much as we did and learned a bit about an ancient art! Next week we will visit with another fun artist so stay tuned and have a great week all!
