Out spotlight today is on an artisan who is new to The Geekery Market, Imperfectionz Art! This is a family business creating paper quilling and polymer clay art. Mattie Wills is the owner and primary creator. She makes almost everything by herself, and has been a professional artist for twelve years. She makes art by night while being super mom to her three dogs, one child, and husband during the day. Matt is Mattie’s assistant. He helps with transportation, paperwork, and anything else Mattie needs. Paper Quilling is the Renaissance Art of taking strips of paper and curling them into different shapes and collecting those into patterns and designs. Mattie has put her own spin on it and has elevated the paper quilling art forum beyond traditional flowers and patterns. Mattie learned paper quilling as a family tradition, passed down from generations.

What Else You Should Know About Them:

What kind of geeky goodness will you be bringing with you to the next Geekery Market?

We are bringing Paper Quilling artwork, Paper Quilled Ornaments, polymer clay charms and earrings, and DIY paper quilling kits.

What's an item you are bringing that you are really excited about?

Paper Quilling anything! I really love the larger pieces because I can add so much more detail.

What was the first item you ever made? How did you learn to make it?

A rubber duck. I was seven and my grandma taught me, she said our family has been paper quilling since we came over on the Mayflower. Not entirely true, but makes a nice story. I love being able to share an art form that is so historically rich.

They are pretty cool, I work really hard to make each piece unique and flowing with awesome goodness.

If you could travel anywhere in space or time, real or imagined, where would you want to go?
