I’m so excited-the ART SPARKS Creative Project decks have arrived! They are a unique collection of inspiring art projects. So if you are a beginner, aching to get creative or feeling stuck and overwhelmed, the projects give you the perfect nudge to get creating.


And if you’re a seasoned pro, the projects provide a jumping off point. Everyone will be inspired by the cards’ flipside, filled with my colorful art. A great gift for creative folks in your life-including YOU! To learn more and to buy them – CLICK HERE.

In order to launch ART SPARKS , I’ve enlisted the help of eight other artists to create a blog hop with me, starting Monday, October 31. In case you’re not familiar with blog hops, it’s when a group of people get together and post on the same topic.


ART SPARKS cards have projects on one side and my art on the flip side.  In the ART SPARKS Blog Hop, each artist will pick a project card and make their own personal creation based on their card. One of the great things about ART SPARKS is that each project provides inspiration and a framework, giving you room to express yourself. Each blogger will post a video or step-by-step photos as they make their project. I can’t wait to see all they come up with! Each blogger has a specific day, starting October 31. In the meantime, I will post the schedule with their website. When their day comes up, I will put in the link to the exact post. So you can check back here anytime to see the active links.

  1. I came in in the middle of this hop when I saw Tiare’s post. So, now I’m cathing up. Love your cards and just loved your project. I know I will try this painting on the tin foil.. I just hope I can ‘see’ what comes through. Thank you for sharing these other artists with me.
