I am, therefore I Create
Born in a town called Benoni in the Gauteng province of South Africa, Lucia Steeg emigrated to Canada in 2020 and decided to pursue her passion and launch her art business. Messy Meerkat Studios was officially “born” in 2021.
Her main influences were surrealism and mixed media. She enjoys pushing the boundaries of what is possible. She believes that being an artist is something that one is born to do and not necessarily learned at school.
She has attended a few markets and expos in the lower mainland including the Vancouver Home Show and Fraser Valley Women's Expo.
While she wears many hats in her business, she also continues to acquire knowledge in the technical artistic techniques in her chosen mediums.
Lucia discovered resin in 2020, the story behind her resin journey is detailed in the blog section of this site. Suffice to say, nothing like a pandemic to bring forth imagination and creativity.
She works primarily in mixed media (including resin) and currently works from her home studio in Surrey British Columbia. Mediums include clays, fibre pastes, gel pastes, alcohol inks, acrylic paints, mosaic tiles, wood, shells, crystals, and resin.
The art is created with healing intent. There is a detailed process behind it's creation using card readings, colours and crystals. Please contact Lucia to set up an appointment, either in person or via Zoom to discuss this and any requirements you may have further.
