Alliday Artist: Meet Stirling Madrid!
Tell us a little about yourself and your business.
Hello, My name is Stirling Madrid I have a fiancé’ named Brian my daughter Karter and an Australian Sheppard named Lillie. I live in Tulsa Oklahoma and I am blessed to say that I am a stay at home mom. Being a stay at home mom has given me the leisure to create accessories at my own pace. I enjoy being with my family day in and day out but I have a deep passion for creating personal creations that light up people’s lives. I work closely with Brenda Horan Photography in creating accessories that compliment both of our styles. I also work closely with Destry Davis of Glamour Artz Designs in creating couture bridal pieces that are truly one of a kind. I have had pieces featured on pintrest, Tulsa Kids and Tulsa People (holiday issue) and I would like to say that I have a very loyal following.
What do you create and what do YOU love about your products?
I create and work closely with customers to design accessories that accentuate that customer’s personal style. I LOVE that my pieces are reasonable in price but have the upmost quality today’s customers demand. I strive to give the absolute best I can at the best price possible. Once you have experienced one of my creations you will have trouble with how you ever had anything else. I use only the best quality materials when creating my accessories.
What sets your creations apart from others?
I can say that my accessories are different from others simply with the amount of detail and scrutiny that goes into each piece. I am a very prideful person and there is just something special about a customer wearing a custom flower creation that just radiates confidence. As an artist I couldn’t be more proud.
Where do you find inspiration?
I find my inspiration in day-to-day activities that My daughter participates in. Karter has a heavy curriculum as well as gymnastics, swimming, horseback riding, and just being prissy little girl. She truly is my inspiration in all that I create
The Alliday Show believes that everyday should be celebrated as a holiday! That being said, which holiday do you wish were everyday and why?
If I were to wish I were a holiday I would wish to be a birthday. As a child who doesn’t love there birthday? The anticipation of celebrating such a wonderful day with friends, family and loved ones with Decorations, cake, planned excitement and the joy and laughter that only those special can create in your heart! If I could be a holiday I would love to be a birthday. What a special experience to be apart of.
What is your favorite holiday tradition?
My favorite holiday tradition would truly be a tie between the Fourth of July and Thanksgiving. Nothing can make your heart more proud than the values you hold deep in your heart and the pride you feel of coming together with the ones you love. They are both such American traditions that make you proud of where you come from and all that you have overcome to be the person you are today. With the national anthem on the fourth or the saying of grace and holding hands around a meal at Thanksgiving both are my favorite.
How would you describe your work in three words?
