I am an artist and creativity advocate who favors processes that allow for chance, unpredictability and play. I began experimenting with surface design in textiles in 2013 and shortly there after founded my eponymous collection, Mercedez Rex, out of a desire to color the world with objects that spark joy and a sense of wonder. In 2018, I discovered the magic of water marbling and have since moved beyond textiles to include surfaces of ceramic, wood and leather. My experimental approach blurs the lines between art and functionality while imbuing time honored methods with a new relevance for the 21st century. Because I believe that everyone has creative potential and that cultivating creativity is a worthwhile pursuit, offering marbling workshops and and private DIY experiential art sessions is a cornerstone of my business.
