We are soooo excited to announce that the very talented Elizabeth Allan will be joining the Inchie Arts Design Team. We were introduced to Elizabeth by another of our designers, Jill Foster, and while we have worked with Elizabeth occasionally in an informal way, we are very proud to now consider her an 'official member' of our team.
We put her on the spot and asked her to prepare a little introduction...
"Hello everyone! I am a northern Michigan girl who is married to her soul mate, Scott. Besides a love of art, I have a deep affection for numbers and I work as an accountant. Many years ago, while working, I began teaching local rubber stamping and paper crafting classes. During that time I realized how much I enjoyed creating something from my heart and sharing that passion with others. In 2006, I was honored by an invitation from Penny Black to join their design team and also assist with their product development. Since then I have been blessed with many opportunities to travel, teach and, I hope, inspire others to find the artist within themselves.
I am so excited to join Lisa and her talented Inchie Arts design team and I look forward to sharing many “Inchie” adventures."
and for her first posting with us....
And her hair blossomed into flowers...a tiny ATC portrait!
It is absolutely unbelievable the amount of detail that Elizabeth has captured in this miniature portrait, painted all with Dr. PH Martin's Hydrus Fine Art Watercolors on a white ATC size Art Square! Maybe it's the delicate blush on the cheeks of this flower girl, or the downcast shaded eyes, but this tiny painting is filled with mystery. This is another example of how our Art Squares are the perfect surface for watercolors and painting with a fine art emphasis. Not only that, but Elizabeth very cleverly hand cut another ATC to create a tiny frame to give it an extra special touch!
Visit Elizabeth's posting today at Studio Sessions for more details about this wonderful tiny painting.
