Last week my friend Birgit Koopsen visited me from The Netherlands. Birgit and I have been teaching together in Europe quite often and last year we organized our first Art Fusion Event in The Netherlands. This year our event was hosted by The InkPad in New York City and we had a great time with our students at Westbeth last sunday.

Birgit taught a Mixed Media Canvas Class using Acrylic Paints and I taught an Altered Book Class using Acrylic Inks, Paints and Markers. Birgit worked with her new wonderful stamps and I was able to see my new Stencils in action :)

It was so much fun. It was a very colorful day and we had a great time with our super talented students!

Thank you to The InkPad for having us and thank you to Liquitex for providing the acrylic media for the class! I am missing Birgit – but who knows – we might be up for something next year ;)

I had a great time last weekend in Dallas teaching at the CREATE Mixed Media Retreat. I taught 3 classes: “It’s All About the Layers- Art Journal”, “Encrusted Shrubbery- Canvas” and “Texture Heaven-Art Journal”. We used loads of fun Liquitex goodies- thank you Liquitex for the wonderful goodies I was able to give away!

I also brought my new stencils – that I just released and it was so much fun to see them used for the first time- wohoo!!! And there was a lot of hands on paint moments :)

It was great to spend so much time with my students in the day classes- and we laughed a lot…especially about my wrong doings in using “Y’all” …I guess “You’s” is wrong in any event in Texas- LOL

It was also wonderful to see some of my fellow teachers and friends at the event- we had a lot of fun in our “Liberace-Hotel” (that’s an insider for everyone who was there and a little side note about the hotel interior ;) )

Thank you to all my students- you were awesome and fun and super creative! A special shout out to Bill – rock on man!!!
