About Skysetter Mobiles - Carolyn Margaret Weir

Welcome to my world of handcrafted art!

I am a full-time artist specializing in kinetic mobile sculptures and painting.  My journey into the world of creative living began in 2013 when I left my role as an accounting/office manager at a multimillion-dollar trucking company to pursue my passion for art full-time. I have always been fascinated by both manual and electronic tools and gadgets, combining traditional craftsmanship with modern technology in my creations.

As a child, I dreamt of being an artist but struggled to sit still long enough to master drawing. It wasn't until later that I realized the value of practice and perseverance in developing artistic skills. Unlike the rare few who are born with innate artistic talent, I honed my abilities through dedication and hard work.

I was born in the San Francisco area and raised on the beaches of South Bay in Los Angeles, with Hermosa Beach holding a special place in my heart. During my teenage years, I was fortunate to spend time with Bob Carannza, a silversmith who taught me the timeless art of drilling turquoise and string beading.

My creative journey has been a lifelong pursuit. As a teenager, I sold beaded jewelry in local boutiques and crafted pillows to sell by the roadside. As an adult, I continued to refine my sewing skills, creating costumes for dancers, kites that I flew globally, and quilts that still provide comfort to this day.

In 2002, I ventured into the world of online sales, opening an eBay account where I sold handcrafted knitting needle cases, tote bags, purses, and baby quilts. By 2006, I returned to jewelry making, mastering wire working techniques that I still use. It wasn't until 2009 that I discovered my true passion for kinetic mobile sculptures. Inspired by a friend's comment on my wire jewelry, I researched kinetic art and found the work of Alexander Calder. I was captivated by the idea of transforming static pieces into dynamic, colorful creations.

Today, my art is my life. From the moment I wake up until I fall asleep, I am immersed in the creative process. I am grateful for the unwavering support of my loving husband of over 30 years, who not only endures the quirks of living with an artist but also constantly searches for new tools to enhance my work.

To those aspiring to live creatively, follow your heart and never stop pursuing your passion. Life is too short for regrets—find what you love, and you'll never work a day in your life.
