I’m a mixed media artist living in Connecticut. By day I am an Office and IT Manager and nights you’ll find me in my art room. My greatest inspiration comes from Sci-Fi movies and my favorite monster is Godzilla. I love to get my hands dirty working with all types of mediums, but my favorite tool is a stencil. I love to create art journal pages, cards, small home décor items, abstracts, and floral canvases.
Hi Everyone! My name is Lindsay and I am so excited to be joining The Crafters Workshop team! I am a stay at home Mom, wife and crafters who lives in a VERY small town in central Iowa. You will mostly find me making cards, but I also love to Bible journal, make woodworking projects, crochet and so many other great crafts!! I can’t wait to share my projects through video tutorials with you all!
Hello, my name is Nadine. I have been crafting for about 20 years now with scrapbook layouts, handmade cards/tags, mixed media, and altered art projects being my favorite things to create although I have done and loved all (except sewing lol) things crafty. I would say my style would best be described as eclectic with a mixed media twist. I love getting messy and trying new techniques. Inspiring others is something I love to do by creating videos and sharing how I create my projects. I feel crafting is an art that is supposed to be fun, to learn from others, to inspire others and to share our love of crafting with one another.
I am a mixed media artist, illustrator, designer, and art journaler. After studying Design in the early 90s I spent the next 12 years immersed in the Natural Health & Alternative Healing industry. When my children were small I was inspired once again to return to art-making. These were adventures in soft toy design, zine editions, ATCs, book page line art, and a hobby turn at children’s fabric design.
I can now be found juggling a busy mom-life with my hubby and 3 girls whilst working part-time in a local Publishing company.
My current art is most often light, whimsical, feminine and full of color. I make happy art to bring joy and light to my everyday
Hello everyone! My name is Marie-Christine Denis and I’m from Brittany, in the west of France. I am a laboratory technician in agricultural research with a 20-year old boy, a husband, and a little crazy dog. During the little time I have for myself, I love Mixed Media; Art Journal and cards are the projects I enjoy the most, followed by tags, notebooks, and home decor. My favorite products that I use in all my creations are textures and stencils, so I am very happy to create with TCW products and be part of this wonderful Design Team!
I’m Laura Denison and I live just outside of Seattle, Washington in the shadow of Mt Rainier with my husband, my 19-year-old daughter and an assortment of furry critters. I also have a 21-year-old son who lives nearby.
This year marks 10 years in the paper crafting world. I have spent my life doing some sort of crafting or artistic endeavor. Quilt design, jewelry design, painting, drawing, clay….if it’s out there, I’ve probably tried it, LOL! My favorite creative question is “What if…”
Over the years I have designed and taught hundreds of projects in person and online. My specialty is 3D projects, with most including a mini-album incorporated into the project. My background in architecture and interior design has come in handy with these projects.
I grew up in Anchorage Alaska which gave me a love for the out of doors. When I am not in my studio, I love hiking and being on the water. I also enjoy a good book and attempt to crochet when I have some downtime to myself.
Saadia Nawaz Durrani
I’m a doctor by profession and work at a private hospital in the morning. Hobby crafter at night. Love art journaling and mixed media projects. I used to make clay flowers and resin jewelry many years ago. I later shifted to card making and art journaling.
My name is Heidi and I live in the Netherlands. In my spare time, I love to read, to hike and especially to make cards and mixed media projects, for which I love to use coloured images.
Already as a child, I loved colouring, back then I only had coloured pencils. When I discovered card making, a few years ago (and mixed media more recently), it was an opportunity for me to share my colourings (with all kinds of mediums) with others.
Małgorzata Kalbarczyk-Leonczuk aka Goga
Scrapbooking is my biggest passion since 2011 when I discovered all-that-glitters goodies at a polish auction portal called Allegro. Then, I was very interesting to change my life into a passion and wanted to start. I’ve ordered my first stamping tools like ink and few stamps and creating. Today, after six years of scrapping journey I can say that I have absolutely everything in my craft corner. By the way today, I think that all things aren’t all-that glitters, but just imagination is on the point.
Jeanine de Plessis
My name is Jeanine du Plessis, I live in New Zealand with my husband and my toddler daughter. I am so honoured to be here and share some inspiration with you all for my second year at TCW.
I am a color craving, Netflix binging, dark chocolate and ice cream lover that loves being a mommy so much!
I wouldn’t say that I am a professional or even an artist; I am just someone who finds the time to create, try out new techniques, something I have seen on YouTube or journal my thoughts.
My art style is loose, messy, fun, raw and unapologetic. I don’t believe there are any mistakes in art, only lessons to be learned. I believe art is for everyone, and that skills and lessons learned should be shared. I also believe in art therapy, since experiencing its magic first-hand. I just want to create beautiful, raw, fun art and share it with whoever wants to look.
My name is Kassy and I have been creating my entire life. Creativity is good for the soul and I believe there is room for it in everyone’s life. My goal is to inspire others to find their creative voice.
I love making handmade greeting cards for my friends and family. My most recent passion is mixed media and 3D objects. Of course, as I think about this, I could also say my other favorites are watercolor painting and art journaling! I am just beginning to learn about acrylic flow art and encaustic painting and I suspect they will be just as addicting. I have always said I could never be bored, as there is far too much to discover! I really love incorporating my photography in my mixed media pieces as well. When I think about my style, a couple of words come to mind, COLOR, and TEXTURE!! I am seriously addicted to texture and great colors that take your breath away and make your heart skip a beat. I really love working with recycled materials and giving old, tired items new life.
Robyn is a mixed media artist, rubber stamper and paper crafter who loves working with colour and texture. Some of her earliest memories revolve around rich colour combinations and patterns and they have become design hallmarks of her work along with interesting techniques and text. Robyn’s other love is photography; she can often be found seeking adventures with camera in hand and those images seep into her work through colour palettes and imagery. Brisbane, Australia is home and she teaches in a local craft store. Robyn is pursuing her love of imagery through a photography degree and can be found most days on Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/robynwoodartist).
Keep an eye out for our next Design Team call for The Crafter’s Workshop in the Spring.
