About Satya Creative
My name is Ally Shea and I'm the designer and builder behind Satya Creative.
I started working with wood 3 years ago after never using a power tool in my life (boy was I missing out). My family and I were living in a 272 square foot tiny house on wheels and I woke up one morning and decided that the wall above my kitchen cabinets needed 'something'. I headed to the lumber store with an idea and got to work. I spent 2 months cutting, painting, throwing pieces out, almost cutting off fingers and nearly tossing the entire thing in the trash before I was able to hang the beautiful 7 by 3 foot piece that still adorns that wall to this day. Friends began to ask if I could create something on a smaller scale for them and the business was born. I've learned so much since then and have expanded what I love to create.
In the beginning, my goal was to make things that were pretty. Over time, I've stepped into making things that make me smile, that make me think or things that inspire me to be the best version of myself. I want to create things that trigger a favorite memory or remind people of who they are and the perfection that can be found within imperfection. If my pieces do that for you, I have accomplished what I set out to do. Your home is the last thing you see at night and the first thing you see in the morning... It only makes sense to choose things for it that align with who you are and how you play in the world.
In addition to woodworking, I am a yoga teacher and a mama to 5 year old twins boys named Bodhi and River who are my whole world. They are amazing little helpers in my shop and love to build their own creations. In addition to woodworking, we love live music, dance parties, hula hooping, riding bikes and all things river play and snowboarding. I love to hear from people and would love to create something custom that lights you up... If you have an idea, please reach out either here or on Instagram and let's see if we can bring it to life!
