A couple of years ago I decided to do something about one of my biggest regrets: not being able to draw. I have always wanted to create expressive sketches, and I finally tamped down the negative voices in my head and took some classes. The process was not easy. In three multi-week workshops over a year and a half, I struggled with basic techniques. There were times I hated my artwork and wanted to give up. But I also had joyous breakthroughs when things suddenly clicked. Taking those classes is one of the best things I’ve ever done, and now sketching is part of my mixed-media repertoire. In learning how to draw, some profound changes happened. I started seeing the world, and art, in a different way. More importantly, I started gaining…

When contributors’ artwork arrives in our offices we can’t wait to open the boxes and see the treasures inside. Two artists who have projects in this issue surprised us by including something else in their packages: beautiful postcards and greeting cards featuring fantastic photos of their artwork and tools. Ailish Henderson and Rachel Hazell both live in the U.K., and used Moo, the online printing company, to create their cards. The cards are obviously a great way to market their work, but in asking what inspired them, we got some surprising answers. First up is Ailish, who wrote Jumpstart: Stitched Collage Portraits, page 45. CPS: How did you come up with the idea for these cards that feature your abstract self-portraits? AH: I thought about how I could create a timeless sense for…

If you believe small spaces aren’t conducive to creativity, Debi Adams would like to prove you wrong. This mixed-media artist moved from a large house with a dedicated art room to a twobedroom Arizona apartment she shares with her daughter. One of those bedrooms also doubles as her workspace, but her approach and attitude to organizing and creating makes it work. “I like to think of it as my retreat,” she says. Three large windows supply lots of warm sunshine, copious storage boxes and desktop pieces help keep supplies in place, and the colorful artwork on display offers a unique, creative atmosphere. But Adams, an in-house senior creative designer for Spellbinders®, readily admits that all bets are off when she’s in the zone, and adds she’d rather be messing up than…
