Did you know you can enhance your wealth or romance by placing copper art in select places around your home? Copper actually was originally called "Venus" by chemists, and is thought by some to have aphrodesiac qualities. You can obtain the benefits of copper by using feng shui to choose the placement of your copper painting. Also, according to feng shui, copper is the most reflective metal and can be used in your wealth corner to enhance your wealth. Looking for a boost in your love life? Try one in your bedroom.

Do you like being one of the first collectors who has the eye to spot a popular artist before they are well known? Does the art you own seem to pull you in, moving and changing throughout the day as a wonderful escape? Fortunately, it’s easy to own a ONE OF A KIND ORIGINAL from Karina Keri-Matuszak! The day I saw a copper painting in 2005 was the day my art was taken to a whole other level. I'm so glad I discovered this rare and unique art form. I'm thrilled to be able to bring this type of art to you too, so that you can experience it in person as well. My name is Karina Keri-Matuszak. I specialize in Copper Art. Copper Art is very unusual. It has a shimmering stained glass feel, but is much more urban and rough. It is very rustic, and retains hammer marks and nails. Copper Art takes on a completely different look based on the lighting and the reflective quality of the copper. It almost seems to move and change. I'm sure you will enjoy this art as much as I enjoyed creating it! I exhibit my work all over the country. I sell online, in retail outlets, and in galleries. INVEST NOW------My work sells FAST. Get yours before the Southern Living article appears for best pricing! Thank you for your purchase!
