Gwen and me at her Mixed Media Shadow Boxes and Shrines class last spring Hi everybody. Welcome to my first post as a member of Gwen Lafleur's Artist Tribe. For those of you who may not know Gwen, she is a talented mixed media artist, an inspiring teacher, a popular stencil designer at StencilGirl Products, a mentor, and my friend, (oh, and then there's that silly day job of her's...).

But in my defense, I only stalk him during the third week of the month... Shocking, isn't it? You see the thing is that I belong to this club. Not just any club though... I belong to StencilClub. And on the 15th of every month, StencilGirl sends Club members a collection of 3 really cool stencils designed by some incredible artists. (And this month there was even a bonus stencil designed...

I've been having so much fun making Infinity Art Flips lately. They remind me of the picture books I used to read to my kids many years ago. Every time I'd get to the end of the story, they'd beg for me to read it to them over again, and again, and again. Learning to Fly is a small Flip, created on a 3"X3" base with a background of india inks, a little collage material and stencils. The main characters of my story include a butterfly and flower fashioned from some oak seed pods, (aka those little twirly bird helicopters... Read more →

I intend to use this blog as a space to stretch my boundaries, experiment with new techniques, explore new genres, create with new products, and breathe new life into old vintage finds. Its exciting to think about all of the infinite possibilities. Read more →
