TabCreates - Tabitha Marshall

From rusty Chevys that have been abandoned in farmers’ fields, to restored classics and brand new rides, Tabitha’s favourite pieces to create are automotive subjects that have been turned into beautiful pieces of art. Most of the pieces have been inspired by her grandfather.
Tabitha's grandfather was a clock maker and a collector of junk, so Tabitha was surrounded by scrap cars and metal growing up. He was a true believer of keeping the old and transforming it into something new. Tabitha now looks at rusty, discarded items in a different light. It wasn't until recently she realized that all the ugly rusted vehicles that surrounded her youth was the root of the majority of her current projects."
