About me

Industry Arts
Occupation artist : art teacher : freelance writer/reviewer
Location Texas, United States
Introduction Life as art... is it too much to expect? Not when you have the right tools. Read reviews of the latest art books, supplies, and a small selection of handmade goods aimed at helping you lead a life filled with creativity. I also intend to share creative projects by both myself and guest artists. ---------------------------- I am an artist and journaler, freelance writer and reviewer whose specialty is in the mixed media art/craft world. I am on design teams that create beautiful art meant to inspire. I teach children's visual journaling and art classes. And I cannot wait to share all these things and more with my readers. ---------------------------- Through agreements with several publishers I also review their latest art/craft books and magazines for various online places. These reviews are on Amazon, LibraryThing, and the Journal Pages Facebook group (over 500 members) when appropriate. I also do articles and product reviews for In the the right sidebar of my site you'll see a listing of the publishers and companies that I am currently working with. I am also a member of SheBlogs, BlogHer, theMomBlogs, and ChicExecs.
