Art Journaling Drop in Day
Every other Thursday we encourage art journalers of all interests, styles and levels to come to the studio to play in their books. We'd love you to join us! Bring your journals, tools and inspiration to the studio with you. There is no formal class, just a group of people inspiring each other. Drop in anytime (most come late afternoon or after work and we stay until about 9 or so) Please RSVP to reserve a space. Studio Fee - $2/hr
Please check our online calendar for the next art journal day.
Studio WorkshopsOur workshop dates and times are flexible. Contact the studio if you are interested in taking one of the classes listed below to arrange a time. Classes are offered anytime during studio retail hours or after hours with a minimum of 4 participants. Groups to a max of 25 are welcome.
I'm a woman who likes to experiment with all things artsy. I'm a mixed media artist, card maker and art journaler who loves new challenges, experiments and developing new techniques and skills .
I am a proud contributing writer for the Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine, and have been fortunate to have some of my stencil designs distributed by The Crafter's Workshop and also a fun polymer stamp line with fellow Canadian company myStamp BOX!
I write, create and do most of my teaching from my working studio - The Art House Studio The studio has evolved and grown into a thriving retail store while continuing to provide a place for people to create and learn from either myself or some of my talented friends in the industry. 2013, for example, will welcome Joanne Sharpe, Sue Pelletier, Anna Dabrowska, Donna Downey and Dina Wakley to name a few.
I am one of THOSE people - a lifetime crafter who has dabbled in everything from knitting/crochet, metal art, jewelry making to encaustic. I started scrapbooking in 1995 when I was pregnant with my (not so) little one and immersed myself into mixed-media in 2005 and have become completely addicted. I love texture and I'm never more happy than when I'm elbow deep in paint or mediums, tossing it around just to see what it will do. That is my true happy place.
Most of my projects are media based and I like to switch it up quite a bit. One day I'll be working in my Visual Journal, the next a canvas but don't think for a minute I won't create a wearable or sew something unique into a bag or other accessory. It's all good and the variety satisfies my creative ADHD tendencies! Join me on Friday Nights 6:30 EST on USTREAM to see what I mean. I broadcast live every Friday from the studio and you never know what I'm going to create. In fact, I never do until I click “start broadcast” .... okay, maybe I know an hour before. Smile But I think you understand.
Be Creative!! and feel free to contact me anytime
