Consie finds that art journaling is the most freeing way to express herself.

Hi everyone, I’m Mansi (phonetic spelling: Maan-see) and I love experimenting with various media. Ever since I can remember, I have loved to paint. When I applied for art school, I was told by the interview committee that my poetry and essays were more powerful than my illustrations and paintings...they advised me to pursue a career in writing and I took it to heart. Fast forward five years and I had become a column journalist for a leading national daily in India, got a master’s degree in journalism from the University of Iowa and moved to California to become a full-time communications professional with a desk job and a six-figure salary.
For almost 15 years, I was a writer, until I decided to give myself a second chance at art. After a series of creative explorations in alcohol inks, fluid acrylic pouring, gel plate printing, resin, I found myself right where I first began: holding a paintbrush. But this time around, it was to express myself freely in my art journal.
I believe that one doesn’t have to have any professional training to experiment with techniques, explore new media, or just write down one’s innermost thoughts and paint over them. When I journal, there is usually no plan, no choice of colors and no agenda. I use a "grab-what's-within-reach-and-see-what-happens" method and love being able to paint like this for myself...there's no motive and no end goal; just the joy of painting for the sake of the process.
Hola everyone! I’m Milagros a born and raised Caribbean girl. Totally influenced by the colorful lifestyle of Puerto Rico in my work. I design stamps and stencils that pair with our culture. My work has been featured in a lot of magazines throughout the years I‘ve been in the industry. A mom, a shopkeeper, an adventurer, a teacher, never fearing the possibilities of trying a new medium, a crazy color combo or what textures can uphold or the tides of our ocean. I’m super excited for our new adventure together!
My name is Nikol Wikman. I live in Victoria, BC Canada with my husband and two children. I have been an artist for as long as I can remember. I loved art class in school and spent hours upon hours sketching. As I grew up I experimented with different creative avenues. I tried sewing, sculpting, took a stained glass course, beaded, and made jewelry. Anything to feed the creative yearning in my soul. In my 20's I decided to try painting again (which I hadn't done since high school). I painted simple pieces for my apartment and loved it! It was so fun to grab a canvas, throw some paint on it and have my own unique piece of art! For a few years I painted here and there but nothing too serious. After my son was born I was struggling a little bit, lonely as a new mom. I decided to make a point of painting (almost) daily. It was one of the best decisions I ever made! In the studio(aka my dining room) I felt like I found myself again! I loved it so much I couldn't stop.
The process of playing with pure liquid colour does something to my heart that nothing else does. I never get bored of it. When I paint I feel joyful and free!
Eight years later I have painted hundreds(maybe even thousands!) of paintings. I have been able to connect and share my love of art with like minded souls from around the world. I've sent paintings to far off places I'll probably never get to visit myself! I feel so lucky and am grateful everyday for what art has brought into my life.
She enjoys playing with different techniques, creating patterns, combining animals and plants to form imaginary creatures and botanical art incorporating ink and watercolours. She has recently discovered the rabbit-hole of collage and is inventing and finding a myriad of ways to incorporate her watercolour creations as collage materials. She finds learning new things inspiring and even more enjoys sharing and teaching her discoveries.
I am a mixed media artist, instructor, author and designer from New York City. I truly believe in the power of art to bring people together and strengthen our communities. My artwork has been exhibited in multiple exhibitions and can be found in numerous books and national magazines. I have published two books of my own, The Pulse of Mixed Media and The Mixed-Media Artist. I love the creative energy that occurs when artists and makers are brought together and have spent a great deal of time teaching workshops - both online and live in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia and Europe. Closer to home I am an instructor at Pratt Institute in NYC. As a designer, I have created collections with many companies, including Impression Obsession, StencilGirl Products, PaperArtsy, WOW and Aladine. Art for me is everything and sharing the process just makes it even better.
