New Mexico native, Stacie Lee Sanchez is the artistic power of Estrella Fugaz Designs. She finds her inspiration through the truth and beauty that surrounds, and affects her, as well as those she loves. Just as life is in constant motion, so is her creative soul. She has discovered that what makes life rich, exciting, and worth living is the many layers of experience, emotions and obstacles encountered along the way. In turn her art is filled with a variety of mediums and subject matters that reflect life. As a former Fine Art Student of the University of New Mexico, Stacie has gained practical skills in multiple art techniques. During her early years of art study she was told that she would eventually find her "niche" and stick to one medium and one style. Stacie refuses to settle into one pattern of creating by allowing her soul to define what medium is necessary to express her current story. Her style is eclectic. Although Stacie enjoys her time lost in musing and creating her favorite, large, fine art oil paintings, she has found a natural emotional balance within her love of folk art exploring subjects such as Spanish Retablos and the Day of the Dead. The ability to seamlessly switch from one medium to another allows her to offer patrons a variety of styles for their personal taste. Her desire for surrealism may not engage everyone, but her natural talent in realism and portrait work will guarantee anyone a spectacular commissioned piece.
In June of 2014 Stacie relocated to Texarkana, Arkansas. It is here she decided that no mater where she lives physically, her spirit will always play amongst the stars.
