Karenliz Henderson

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.

Nadine Carlier

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.

Dani Choate

Dani Choate TCW DT member

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

Charmaine Canham

Charmaine Canham TCW DT member

Charmaine started card making 4 years ago when she decided the whole family needed handmade Christmas cards that year. CharCards was born!
This South African is wife to a Yankee, mom of two boys and a girl, and works as a radiology technologist by day here in South Carolina. Since that Christmas season, she has been on various stamp design teams and designed some of her own sassy stamps.
Her style of art is still undetermined as she dabbles in paper arts, water coloring, using Copic markers, and Prisma pencils and until recently, a Gel Press plate and acrylics.

Her works are full of soul and sass and she enjoys sharing her knowledge with others. She has aspirations of teaching art classes and giving up her day job!

Follow her on Instagram (www.instagram.com/charcards.charmaine.canham)  and Facebook (www.facebook.com/charcardscharmainecanham)

Renae Davis

Mixed Media Art and Bible Journaler. Photographer. Daydreamer. Natural Redhead. Simply Southern.

Art journaling is my jam. I started out Bible journaling a couple of years ago that has now evolved into 20+ active luscious art journals of all sorts, sizes, and themes. I love making my own recycled art supplies and using every bit of scrap paper and pigment that I can get my inky hands on.

Helen Hollinger

Helen Hollinger TCW DT member

Hi! I am Helen Hollinger and live in Cambridge, Ontario with my hubby of 30+ years! We have 2 grown sons, aged 29 and 25! I am a retired RN and spend my time getting messy in my art journals and mixed media projects! I started playing with paper years ago when my sons were babies, scrapbooking their lives! After they realized that I took too many photos of them as teenagers and told me to stop scrapbooking them, I started art journaling! The first stencils I ever purchased were The Crafters Workshop ones … and I still use them 7 years later!  I love art journaling, Mixed Media canvases, card making, and just getting messy and inky! I do hope I can inspire you to create!

Tammy Klingner

Tammy Klingner TCW DT

I live in the gorgeous Clare Valley in Australia and am mama to some spirited and everchanging teenagers who I absolutely adore, along with two furry kitties. I relish colour, the brighter the better and have discovered that playing with paint soothes my soul. For me my art is not just about creating, it’s about exploring, discovering, breathing, connecting, and being true to myself. I am thrilled to be here and can’t wait to share.

Nicole Martel

Hello! My name is Nicole Martel and I live in Crownsville, Maryland with my 10-year old son, a husband, and Toby (my cat). During the day, I work as an Assistant Branch Manager for a credit union. At night, you can find me binge watching my favorite series on Netflix, scrapbooking, playing with my son, or reading a good thriller. I’ve been scrapbooking for over 20 years and I honestly love this hobby. It brings me great joy to create scrapbooking layouts, cards, mini albums, and even wood crafts. I do a little of everything. I’m so excited to be designing for TCW!
