Congratulations! Welcome to the team.
Tiare Smith is a self-taught mixed media, art journal artist and instructor.
Born with art in her heart she lost her way from her art for 18 years. It came back to her life in a burst of emotion and anxiety. By practicing techniques of love, positive self talk, thoughts and action which have helped her to overcome other areas of struggle, she now enjoys her art in a free and inspiring way.
She inspires creatives to embrace their inner artist while also nurturing their hearts and memories.
She has not only been featured on HGTV but has had numerous works published in a variety of crafting magazines and blogs.
You can find her teaching at her local paper crafting store, online or in her private studio.
She aims to help women to embrace the artist within through lessons infused with love, happiness, confidence and creativity, empowering them to experience and express their art more freely. It is her mission to touch one million hearts in such a powerful and significant way.
Mandy Grobosch lives in Dresden, Germany with her partner. She has always been an artistic and a crafting person right from a very young age. In June 2014 she discovered the whole world of paper crafting especially scrapbooking and cardmaking. Her first contact with mixed-media and art journaling was in 2015. She really loves to play with all the beautiful patterned papers, embellishments, colors, media & techniques. Her projects are mostly clean & simple and sometimes with bright colors. Her current passion has been with exploring the options that different media provide and incorporating lots of different materials and styles into my art. For her the best thing of mixed-media and art journaling is: “Surprising myself and sometimes not to know what I will end up with.”
Natalyn Bradshaw is an artist, creativity facilitator and voice teacher working with women to cultivate creative practices. Natalyn has been a working artist in the form of an opera singer, worship leader, photographer, visual artist, teacher and writer. She loves talking about creative self-care, tending to one’s soul and seeing oneself correctly and lovingly. Her love language is words of affirmation followed closely by gifts (like art supplies, coffee dates and bubble tea). Originally from Atlanta, she now resides in Virginia with her husband and her four children.
Sherry Canino is a mixed media artist who has a flair for color. Her style is light and whimsical but with depth and meaning behind it. She loves to inspire others with her art. She has worked doing art therapy at Ophelia’s Place and has been published in Syracuse Women’s Magazine. You can find her most evenings finding some quiet time in her home studio, art journaling with her 3 beloved pugs at her feet.
Tanyalee Kahler is primarily a mixed media art journaler who is beginning to dabble in works on canvas. She has always been a creative type, starting with sketching cartoon characters as a young girl, right through to now where she works as Graphic Designer and Social Media Consultant. She strongly believes that everyone can make art and be creative, you just need to believe in yourself and follow your instincts. She believes getting messy with paint (and she means messy – she LOVES to use her hands rather than brushes) is like therapy, when times are tough.
