Creating art is a lot like riding a bike or driving a car — even when you haven’t created for a long time it’s an instinct that lives within you just waiting for a little moment to explode on a scrap of paper.
Catherine Scanlon, a lifelong artist; has spent a lot of her adult life creating — but in the times that her creativity has gone into hiding — it has always emerged days, months and even years later; more creative, more bold and better than ever before. The various breaks in creativity have helped to ferment and refine the techniques she’s sharing with you in Creative JumpStart.
As a 6 Year Veteran of Creative Jumpstart, Catherine loves to share her creative techniques for jumpstarting her dry spells with you, pushing you to try new things and expand your creative toolbox with new supplies, new techniques and a new love for creating art.
While she has spent many years working in the paper crafting industry, these days you will find her splitting her time between creating coloring book illustrations, new stamp designs for Art Gone Wild and working in the Marketing and Art Department for Art-C / Momenta in Portsmouth, NH. There she puts her talents to good use, creating videos, putting together pre-production samples, testing new products, and making samples to adorn the packages of their new products.
Here is a sample of Catherine’s work:
