The creation of art: Original fine art painting, decorative and tole painting, metalsmithing, collage, beading, polymer clay sculpture.

Welcome to Visual Gems Studio; jewelry and paintings by Velvet Tetrault. I paint ordinary things and circumstances in a way to make them emotionally meaningful. I create paintings of birds and flowers, acrylic landscape painting, contemporary still life paintings, allegory art, figurative paintings, wildlife art paintings, tole paintings, and handmade beaded jewelry art.

   Hello. My name is Velvet Tetrault. I am an artist living in Sun City, Arizona. I create paintings of birds and flowers, wildlife art paintings, acrylic landscape painting, contemporary still life paintings, allegory art, figurative paintings, tole paintings, and handmade beaded jewelry. I believe in creating a response in people that moves them emotionally. To that end, I create fine art paintings, tole paintings, and handmade beaded jewelry. Each of my paintings is created in order to evoke a variety of emotions or thoughtful contemplation. I call my paintings Visual Gems because, in many of the paintings, especially the paintings of birds and flowers, I use vibrant colors for most of the backgrounds that give the paintings a gemlike reality, instead of using the neutral colors of nature.
My tole nutcrackers, figures, and other objects are created for whimsy and decorative appeal.

   I think of my handmade beaded jewelry as sculpted art. Each piece of jewelry is first created from many beads and crystals, Swarovski jewelry crystals, polymer clay, and sometimes metal, for a unique product. I choose color meticulously to create a pleasing sculptural whole. The addition of copper or polymer clay cabochons often provide a focal point. A few pieces of my handmade beaded jewelry art are housed in their own display cases as wall art when not being worn.
