Creative Imaginations is excited to announce our two newest Artists, Josie Celio and Sally Griswold - Iron Orchid Designs!!
Josie and Sally, sisters who grew up in an artists world, spent summers with their grandparents and were exposed to such things as collage, sculpture, oil painting, miniatures, stained glass, mosaic and a manual printing press at an early age. It was no surprise then that they eventually built a successful business together doing murals and European surface treatments, appearing as guests on such shows as The Christopher Lowell Show, QVC and Good Morning Boston for various creative and entrepreneurial endeavors.
Most recently, they are working at what they would call their dream job, as designers and product developers for the crafting industry. Consistent with their name, their work plays with contrast and incorporates a velvet refinery with an industrial edge that they like to refer to as vintage glam funk - think velvet and silk, concrete and rebar, and throw in a bit of Picasso for a dose of the unexpected. They are quickly becoming known in the industry for their revolutionary products and concepts having several hit the coveted Creating Keepsakes top ten list. They have been featured as guests on the popular television show Scrapbook Memories as well as QVC highlighting their newest hybrid products developed for the crafting industry known as ‘Retail Friendly Hybrid’ or RFHWe are excited to present the first of two new releases for Iron Orchid Designs.
