I am Elitia Hart, a South African born metal crafter now living in Calgary, Canada. Having worked with and explored a variety of artistic materials and techniques I found my true medium of expression when introduced to metal sheet embossing in 1999.

For the past 19 years I have enjoyed sharing my knowledge and technique teaching introductory and advanced metal art classes at my home studio in Calgary, Canada,  in retail stores, and for retreat groups in Canada, US, Mexico and France.

My philosophy on metal art mark making is that “more is more and less is a bore” and “if it makes a mark, it is a tool”.

This craft offers endless possibilities and I am constantly evolving by developing new classes that will ignite an unbridled enthusiasm for this medium in card makers, scrapbook enthusiasts and dabblers in mixed media.

I have created a variety of “how to” videos for metal embossing that can be viewed on my website under “how to videos and I can be found on Facebook at Elitia Hart Metal Art.
