Get to know Shakira

My name is Shakira and I am the artist behind Dark Arts Craftopedia, I am a Mexican-American licensed clinical psychologist that after years of practice as an Art Therapist for state mental institutes switched careers into the arts, I became a professional photographer who loves to decompress and craft, I found my medium in resin and sculpted art. My style is heavily influenced by pop art & kawaii design. I am the person behind the sculpted face tumblers, donuts, colorful drips and scoops.

I run Dimensional Artist where we create at least 2 monthly 3D tumblers, additionally in our program I teach monthly easy to learn product photography, so you can succeed in your e-commerce business.

I am part of an Art Therapy Podcast called 3D Talez. I have taught in person classes such as The Great American Craft Expo in Atlantic City, Crystal Sweets class in San Diego California, Haunted Warehouse in New Jersey and coming up this summer Once Upon a Craft in Dallas Texas.

Some of my previous work includes advertising and social media accounts for clients like Univision, Military and Surf Therapy Non Profits and many more.
