Joanne is originally from North Jersey, where she was a high school art teacher. She has been designing creative artwork for 26 years from her art studio in Florida. Her art is inspired by a life-long love of nature. Joanne is now gearing up to bring her new collection of designs to her artisan counterparts in Bali, Indonesia to have ready for the Summer Gift Market in Atlanta, Georgia.
Mark has practiced three-dimensional metal sculpting for over 20 years. Keen observations of nature have inspired this self-taught craftsman.
Mark has harbored a deep love of fishing since he was a young boy when he spent many summer weekends fishing with his grandfather and uncles along the Jersey Shore. He is drawn to the big catch and also to the endless, awe-inspring beauty of the sea. He is fascinated by the interplay of light, movement and form found in the ocean. His designs reflect this in the unique depths and finishes of his many metal sculptures. Mark hopes they will inspire your environment for years to come.
Mark Malizia is the Designer/Owner of T.I. Design. He has also started his own company, Copper Art, featuring creative designs from high grade metals and colored in exotic patina finishes.
