Karenliz is our honorary Design Team Emeritus.
My name is Karenliz Henderson and I live in Connecticut. I work full time as an Office and IT Administrator. Nights and weekends, I’m a self-taught mixed media artist and love using stencils in most of my art. I started as a card maker then branched out to tags, art journals, canvas and anything else I can get my hands on. My favorite medium is acrylic paints, India inks, and modeling paste. I’m happiest when my hands are full of paint. I hope my art work inspires others and turn them into stencil lovers too.

My name is Jenni Calma. My husband and I live in Alabama with our three children- a girl, a boy and one hairy dog named Lola. My favorite part of school as a child was collecting new notebooks, colored pencils and crayons, so I guess I have always been obsessed with paper! I love using of layers, both in paper and other mediums. Aside from my craving to create, I am a typical Virgo, an avid reader, Pinterest addict, a lover of dogs, peanut butter, cardinals, red wine, anything Italian, and my children’s laughter.
I am so thankful to be a part of The Crafter’s Workshop Design Team for a second year! Looking forward to another year of working with an inspiring team of talent!

My name is Tetiana Komarova, however in the scrap world I use my nickname Taniko. I’m 27 years old and I live in Kiev, Ukraine. Currently there are three important matters in my life: my family – all my time is devoted to upbringing of my son Timofey… well, and my husband sometimes:), postgraduate studies – for already two years all my mental efforts has been thrown to the writing of dissertation, and scrap – in 2011 I plunged into this exciting world and still depend on it.
I like to experiment and to make projects in different styles but my favorite is mixed-media. I adore mixed-media techniques because they give me the freedom to express myself and appear to be the best tool for the realization of creative potential. I formed my own view on this style and my projects are created with using contrasting colors. As for me the best colour combination that works together well is: turquoise+lime+yellow. I’m really obsessed about turquoise colour and you can find it in every my project!)) I like to make lots of layers and add different interesting small details, play with texture paste and acrylic paints, use bright colors and fabrics. My favourite type of craft are layouts 30*30cm, canvases and alter projects. I can’t imagine them without splashes of acrylic paint! My motto is: “Follow your scrap instinct to wherever it takes you”!

Mixed media artist & art journaler Marlene Meijer-van Niekerk is a South African origin artist who chose not to be limited to the culture she happened to be born into, although she misses the colours, sounds and smells of Africa on a daily base and recognizes its influences on her work…she tries to free herself of limitations….by pushing the boundaries of the materials she uses.”By defining yourself, you are limiting yourself.” I refuse definition by race, country, gender, orientation, education, career or language…..and I try to work in several art styles, not limiting myself by man set borders. I believe it is part of my creative freedom and broadens not only my view of art, but the all over experience too.”
Marlene’s art is often described as vibrant, original, colourful, free and positive. She uses a lot of different mixed media and applies them in various techniques. She works on paper, in journals, on canvas and loves stamp design and integrating stencils in her work.
Marlene teaches 4 art journaling and mixed media(playfull painting) classes every week and tries to tutor live workshops twice a month throughout the Netherlands. This potter’s daughter….became an acrylic artist in her twenties…and finally found her “inner voice” when she started art journaling and mixed media a few years ago. About 14 years ago she settled in Holland with her husband and children.(9 &13). She is very excited about working with The Crafters Workshop as a design team member….
