Video with Creative Catalyst

Hi all! I have been very busy lately preparing for a video I am shooting with Creative Catalyst Productions. I am SO thrilled with this project! Their videos are packed full of fabulous demos and useful information, and they are shot beautifully. The video is based on my Scribble Collage workshop, but much expanded to include dozens of techniques for painting and decorating papers, including staining tissue papers, and then demonstrations on how I use them in collage-paintings. It includes loads of practical information and tips on color and composition, as well as on materials and sources.

Get a preview of CCP videos by checking out some of my favorites: Anne Bagby, Ann Baldwin, Carrie Burns Brown, and Virginia Cobb are just a few of the CCP artists' videos I can strongly recommend. You can learn so much even by watching the sample clips!

One other bit of news: I got married last Saturday! To the left is a picture of me just before the ceremony, with a gorgeous floral head dress made by my friend Mego at Green Peak Farm (she grows vegetables as well as flowers). Check out Mego's blog, where she posted a few pix of the event.

  3. Congratulations on your wedding -- and for your new video! I looked at the CCP website, and it looks like a high quality organization. Thanks for the link. I am looking forward to your online class next month on using text in collage... I hope you find time in all this activity to spend on your own art!

  12. Just finished scanning through your whole blog, from the very first to March 2012 (it took me a bit of time!). I made tons of notes and delighted in seeing your work in all its stages. This is truly a place for artists to "refill the well," as Jane Cameron says.

    I thought your joyful wedding day post was the perfect spot to say thank you for sharing so much, and to wish you and your "sweetie" much, much joy. You look perfectly radiant in this photo.
