Belle Chasse resident, and single mom, Stephanie Becker channels all of her extra energy into her craft – Heart of Brass Creations. The name comes from her desire to be in law enforcement. After realizing that career path wasn’t going to work out, she became a school teacher. Stephanie lives in a Peter Pan world where her imagination has no limits. Her artwork is her outlet and she hopes that it can bring joy to others as well.
1. What products and services do you offer?
Whatever your imagination can cook up, I try to create it!
I have a vinyl cutting machine so that if you like something, I can put it on cups, glasses, shirts, bags, whatever.
I also do murals.
2. How long have you been in business?
I have been painting since I was 5 but, I have been selling my art for 2 and half years now.
3. How do people find you online?
Facebook at Heart of Brass Creations.
4. What is lesser known about your business that you wish more people knew?
This is my true passion. It’s my outlet and not just a hobby. It’s truly how I express myself – an expression of me. I take great pride in creating beautiful pieces that people can afford.
5. What’s your favorite aspect or project you’ve worked on?
I had a piece that was a streetcar, that I loved. It was sold at an auction.
The NOLA homes that I make really pushed me to learn something new. I had to cut them out and I wasn’t familiar with that before. My dad helps me with all of it. Now they are one of my favorites.
