My path into the art world began at a very young age; I can remember the desire to create always being within me. Going from coloring books and drawings of made-up fantastical lands, to high school art classes (and a teacher who was dumbfounded that I wasn't pursuing art in college). To changing my major multiple times in college and winding my path back to a degree in art. To multiple jobs after college, trying to find the right thing, trying to make enough money to survive. To quitting a well-paying, secure office job to dive head first into the unknown world of being a working artist.

Sometimes you just have to trust the path, because it will lead you to what you love.

From the beginning, my work has been filled with color. My mixed media collages are busy and expressive, often messy, and inspired by our magical world. My art journal pages are the same way, and they are always created without a set plan. It's an expression of how I view life: keep going, trust and believe, and always let yourself gravitate towards what you love.

I am a self taught artist living in Coon Rapids Minnesota. I consider myself to be a journal constructionist; I strive to create journals that are often impractical and stretch the boundaries of what a journal is or can be. I love mixed media so most of the time my painted works are often also stitched or created with other elements. I love deep layers of paint and imagery covered and hidden in layers of texture along with more paint. My work has been published in several magazines including Cloth Paper Scissors, Somerset Studio, Art Journaling as well as several books including In This House and In This Garden both by Angela Cartwright and Sarah Fishburn  and A World Of Artist Journal Pages by Dawn DeVries Sokol

I am a visual poet, earth mystic and mist walker. I walk in beauty dreaming with the divine to create sacred art and to partner with intuitive healing practices. I create in dialogue with the sacred feminine and my practice involves listening to the magic as it appears in dreams, journey, tarot, nature and other daily blessings. I’m a beauty unveiler, light huntress, moment caresser, mythologist, archetype weaver and visionary poetess. Ultimately, all of my work is about helping people peel back the layers to experience the intense beauty of each moment allowing them access to both their intuitive wisdom and a deeper connection to spirit and self, helping them find their own truths in connected stillness. In this way I am a guidess helping others find their own mystery school of wisdom and sacred being.     (Because the beauty of this life cracks our hearts open and it is through the cracks that light can flow both in and out and connect us back to our divine selves). Oh... and I believe in the magic of this life.

I live in the insanely beautiful Blue Mountains, just shy of Sydney, amoung the clouds and mist, with my family, our kitten and all the winged ones who frequent our garden. Each day here is a wondrous delight of tiny miracles through either the glorious light or magical mists.
Mixed media artist, photographer and creator of soon to be published Stardust & Fallen Petals oracle/tarot deck.

I am Marieke Blokland, an artist, designer and illustrator from the Netherlands. After studying graphic design at an Academy of Arts I worked in the marketing of art & craft supplies for a large retailer for a decade. Since 2014 I work as an independent entrepreneur and artist under the name of Bloknote. In my online art journaling and mixed media school BloknoteAcademy I sell fun online art workshops and e-courses.

Art journaling is a huge passion. In my art journals I love to play with art supplies and express myself visually. My quirky work is often graphical and illustrative. Sometimes raw, sometimes cute and often a little edgy.

An art geek is what I call myself, as I am very fond of modern art and design, trying to absorb as much art as I possibly can. I currently love the art from Picasso, Francis Bacon and Grayson Perry a lot. But I can also feel really inspired by watching a Tim Burton movie, old Japanese woodblock prints, African masks, folk art and street art.

If Tracy Verdugo was given the opportunity to coin a term for a new art movement based around what she teaches  she  might call it “Curiosity and Wonderism”or  maybe “Loosen-upism” or “Endless possibilitism”
When she is not hanging out with her family in their artsy adobe home in a small village on the shores of Jervis Bay, Australia, or throwing paint around in her little purple studio in their backyard, you may find her wrangling with two large suitcases attempting to board the BART in San Francisco en route to teach at an art retreat or sitting in a circle on St Pete Beach Florida listening intently as women share their stories of creative longing.

Tracy is an inspiration instigator, prolific painter, singer/songwriter and lover of the written word, smitten traveller and soaker up of all that is beauty-full.  She teaches her Paint Mojo and other creative workshops all over this amazing planet and reminds her students of the wonder that already resides within them.
Her works are vibrant and filled with joy, inspired both by wanderlust, diversity and the beauty of everyday life. Since 2000 Tracy has held 16 successful solo exhibitions and her works are held in collections both in Australia and internationally.
Mostly though she is mama bear to two gorgeous, zest-filled daughters, Santana and Sienna, and co-adventurer  in life with her amor of 32 years, the talented and brilliant Marco.

Many artist struggle with making art they feel best expresses what they want it to. I create art and courses to give your curious and beautiful voice a place to shine because I believe that we all have a vein of potent curiosity that enables us to “figure it out”. Each of us is fully equipped to figure out how to live in a way that feels most true, how to make what we see as beautiful, how to transmute challenges into strength, and how to feel alive and purposeful and connected.

I am the author of the best selling “Semiprecious Salvage: Creating Found Art Jewelry” and co-author of “Plaster Studio:Mixed-Media Techniques for Painting, Casting and Carving.
I am also the creator of over a dozen popular online art courses and ebooks which provide easy, step-by-step guidance on how to improve your metalsmtihing skills in my signature “homesteader” style, how to combine plaster, paint, and encaustic medium in two-dimensional work, and how to create original sculpted forms with plaster and found objects.

Hi I'm Tori Weyers from Indianapolis, Indiana. I am a fine artist and designer specializing in illustration, mixed media and abstract painting. I have a BFA from the Art Academy of Cincinnati and I have been working as a professional artist and designer since 1998. I have been published in Somerset Studio’s Art Journaling Magazine, F&W publication’s How Design Magazine as well as North Light Books 2016 Incite4 The Best of Mixed Media.

Art is a part of my everyday life, I make space to create daily and to explore the elements of – color, shape, line and texture. I find that I am inspired by the past and I pull elements from vintage ephemera in combination with line, pattern and scale together with contemporary colors and compositions to create a harmonious conversation between yesterday and today. I look at colors, shapes and textures in the world as well: the roots of trees as they twist over the dry earth, weathered wood turned grey by the cold Indiana winters and hot humid summers, cracked sidewalks with tiny flowering weeds breaking through, graffitied walls and signs altered by unseen human hands. I believe art and nature have the power to heal, there is beauty all around and we only need to stop and look to see the wonder and find inspiration.

Jeanne is married to her dream maker, Kelly, and the mother to three funny and creative kiddos.  She home schools her children even though she has tried to get out of it a few times.  You can often find her hiking in her state of Colorado, making creative messes in her studio and finding an excuse to have another cup of coffee.

She speaks and teaches all around the country and sometimes she even gets to cross the pond.  She was told that she needed to find that one thing but she doesn’t like listening to directions so she embraces many loves and that has given her a sweet mash-up of family, art, decorating and fashion.  Connecting with women and sharing that each of us has been creatively made is one of her passions.   The Lord is showing her each day to trust in him and in doing that the adventure continues.

Hi there, my name is Eliza Trojanowska.

I can't imagine my life without art journals.
I never leave my house without at least one in my bag. (yes, usually there are more than one)

I always take at least two on my holidays. Travel journals are among my favourite ones in my collection.
I've counted them all – there are 89 art journals. This includes three that are round robin ones travelling the country, two that I felt I had to purposely throw away some years ago and one that I left behind in a hotel room – I'm still sad about this one.

I have been journaling ever since I can remember.

Being a little girl spending hours cutting, pasting & drawing;
a shy teenager copying poems about unrequited love and collaging around them;
an art history student furiously writing down facts and reflections during my museum visits and art lectures;
a mom-to-be and then a mom squeezing out every available second to write, collage and paint about my new reality;
a hospital patient pouring my experience onto paper to survive another day;
and lately – all the time doing what I have always done – using images, colours and words to redefine myself, to understand my „new normal” and the transformation that I'm going through and to connect with this new me.

As you can see, I can easily tell my life story with my journals.

Hello, my name is Kaz, I live in the beautiful county of Shropshire, England with my husband, daughter and pet dog. I have a shed called ‘The Little shabby shed’ in my garden where I get to lock the door from the inside and shut the world out to escape...it’s my little piece of heaven.
When I’m not at my day job, I’m usually looking for vintage treasure; it inspires me and my artwork. I’m always intrigued as to who has previously owned an item, where it may of travelled, who they were, even the old photographs that I collect contain so many memories…. each object holds an untold story.

In my work I always try to include some of my vintage finds….I hope to try and bring it back to life in some way. The layers, texture and paint effects I use are often inspired by my surroundings from old rusty railway lines, peeled paint on a window frame, worn wood on a doorway… it all influences how I try and create my Art. I would say I have two styles, vintage and grungy, I think that’s because colour scares me a little….but like everyone else here, I’m very much still learning new paths of discovery.
I have been really lucky to have had my work published in Somerset studio, Craft Stamper and Carnets de scrap magazines. I have designed samples for Tim Holtz, Dyan Reaveley, Ranger Ink and Paperartsy. I have previously taught workshops both locally and at Art from the Heart in Harrogate and I also have demonstrated products at trade shows in the UK. I actively blog my artwork and enjoy following friends and fellow artists on social media….
I live by two words…Carpe Diem (seize the day)

My name is pronounced Y-anne, not Wayne.  I used to not like it, but later decided it's a cool name for an artist. I’ve been a full-time artist for the past 20 years. I have been blessed to have my work in collections all over the world.  My work has also been licensed by the eclectic boho company, Natural Life and several greeting card companies.

In late 2013, I was diagnosed with Stage IV oral cancer. It was a shock since I never smoked, and was otherwise, relatively healthy.  I underwent a major 13-hour surgery, losing my entire tongue and 66 lymph nodes. Followed by chemo, radiation and a year grueling long recovery process. I lost my ability to talk clearly and I take all of my food and drink from a stomach feeding tube. Thankfully, I’m still cancer free and winning the battle with the beast. I am extremely lucky that I don’t have to talk in order to paint. Now, I’m painting more than ever! The process has taught me to live in the moment and not take anything for granted. I now consider "the Big C" a gift. 

I now live without hesitation and doubt. I boldly paint what makes me happy in the hopes that it will bring a smile to someone's face and make their day a little brighter. Life's too short!

She left this fast paced role to become a mother to her two girls. While at home, Ivy engrossed herself in creative discovery and began to passionately shoot photography and author a blog. These endeavors ultimately led her to the online creative community - which inspired a fruitful and gratifying career as an Art Instructor - teaching both online and in person.

Nathalie Kalbach - I am a self-taught mixed media artist. I was born in Germany and lived most of my adult life in Hamburg before moving to the United States in September 2013. I now live in Jersey City, NJ.

My early love of paint was squelched by an art teacher who told me I had no talent. I worked as a paralegal for seventeen years and might have remained in the wrong profession had I not discovered mixed media painting in 2004.
I regained confidence in my creativity and have spent the last decade exploring the possibilities of creating dimension and texture by layering different materials and paint media. I have worked in art journals and on canvases, incorporating collage and found objects. My projects have been published in several art, craft and hobby magazines as well as mixed media books. I have taught at many retail events and art retreats, as well as at trade shows, and by 2011 I was able to give up working as a paralegal to become a full-time artist.

Since 2006 I have taught workshops in Europe, Canada, the U.S., Australia, Israel, Malaysia and online. Since Spring 2015 I am teaching Mixed Media Workshops at Pratt Institute for the School of Continuing and Professional Studies. In March 2016 I released four Acrylic Paint workshop DVD’s with ArtistNetwork TV (Colorful Foundations, Mediums Demystified, Raw Canvas Staining, and Creating Texture Canvases) In my workshops I share what I know about tools, supplies and techniques, with the goal of helping each student unlock his/her personal creativity.

My artwork is licensed through StencilGirl Products (stencils), RubberMoon (rubber stamps), Stampendous (rubber stamp, foam stamp and stencil sets) and ArtFoamies (foam stamps). My work has been featured on the packaging for Liquitex Acrylic Painting Sets sold at Michaels art and craft stores. From September 2014 until October 2105 I was a sponsored artist/brand ambassador for Liquitex.

My Book Artful Adventures in Mixed Media – Art and Techniques inspired by Observation & Experience with North Light Books was released in June 2017.

Mary Beth Shaw worked in the insurance industry for 18 years before she quit her job in 2000 to re-ignite a childhood love of art. Since then she has spent all her waking hours exploring life as a painter working in mixed media, primarily acrylic, encaustic and collage. She initially put in lots of hours as a road gypsy, exhibiting at outdoor art fairs and selling as many as 300 paintings in one very blurry year. She transitioned into being a workshop instructor in 2008 and finds pleasure helping students find their own voice as a painter.

Her personal creative process is a dance between spontaneity and intent; she finds great joy in the physical act of painting and looks at her best work as a gift from a higher power. She welcomes mistakes because they so often provide a delightful detour into new territory. She is author of Flavor for Mixed Media and Stencil Girl, is a columnist for Somerset Studios Magazine an a Golden Artist Educator. She is the founder of StencilGirl Products, LLC. She has a tattoo of a shooting star on her right shoulder.

My name is Jamie Avery, I grew up in a home where both my parents were painting, so I have always loved to be creative. My biggest creative passion is photography, but I also like to paint with acrylics and watercolours, draw with pencils, and am very excited to experiment in mixed media techniques.

I started life in retail, but later set up a Graphic, Animation, Video and Web-design business with my brother. We filmed for TV, created animations for many blue chip companies, and won awards for web design.

This I did for many years before the retail bug bit me again, and combining the skills I had learnt over the last few years, with my love of creativity, I opened an online retail shop, Artist Trading Post, a retailer specializing in Mixed Media and Art Journaling products, which I ran successfully from 2008 until I sold the business in 2017. I love the technical aspect of how products work with each other and why, and helping people to experiment and be brave.
