Creative Exchange Webinar: Watch It Now!

Did you miss our first ever panel discussion webinar? Or perhaps you’d like to listen again. In any event, here is your chance to watch now and be a part of the Creative Exchange!

A Slice of the Moon

Plexi Squared
Mary Beth Shaw
Flavor for Mixed Media

They are four of the hottest authors and most creative people we have had the privilege to work with. And now, in our first ever roundtable webinar, we spend one full hour with these talented women, talking about what is creativity. Learn what makes them tick, what gets their creative juices flowing and picking their brains for tips and tricks!

[Note: Unfortunately we have had many problems converting and making the recording of this webinar available to our audience. In fact, when you click on the above image, you are going to the Go To Webinar platform where you will be able to view the webinar in its entirety — but you will have to enter your email address if you already registered and you’ll have to register if you haven’t yet! There may also be issues with Windows viewing (which should be easy breezy) versus Mac viewing (which might be a challenge). Rest assured we are still trying to work out the conversion with the good people at Go To Webinar, and if we accomplish that, we will update this post!]

And may we suggest the following books, written by the artists featured in the webinar?


Mary Beth Shaw worked in the insurance industry for 18 years before she quit her job in 2000 to re-ignite a childhood love of art.  She is now a full time painter and internationally known workshop instructor. Her creative process is largely self taught, spontaneous and joyful. She is author of Flavor for Mixed Media and is also a columnist for Somerset Studios Magazine. In 2010, Mary Beth recognized a need for ‘artist designed’ stencils and created StencilGirl Products, which has quickly grown into a respected supplier of high quality stencils for all media. Living with her husband and three cats, Mary Beth is passionate about every moment of life. She is currently writing her second book for North Light Books.

Sandra Duran Wilson is influenced by scientific concepts, the dream state and the nature of materials. She loves to experiment and push the limits of paints, mediums and surfaces. She enjoys the tactile aspect of paint and what it can do, and she has always been an inventor of new ways to use existing tools and materials. She loves to paint ideas; to make them visible, beautiful and abstract so that others may enter them and create their own reality. She lives and creates in Santa Fe, New Mexico, with Mark, her husband and collaborator, and a bevy of feline friends. Sandra is the co-author of Mixed Media RevolutionSurface Treatment Workshop andImage Transfer Workshop and is working on her fourth book with North Light Books.

Darlene Olivia McElroy comes from an old New Mexico family of storytellers and artists. She began making art the first time she found a wall and a drawing instrument. Her grandfather, a painter on Catalina Island, was her mentor and taught her to play and experiment with art. Darlene attended the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, and has worked as an illustrator both in the United States and in Paris. She went from creating illustration traditionally to becoming one of the first nationally recognized digital illustrators in the late 1980s. Darlene lives and works in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where she paints, teaches, writes and enjoys a delightfully chaotic life with her husband, Dave, and their four dogs, Bernie, Bella, Taco and Zola. Darlene is the co-author of Mixed Media RevolutionSurface Treatment Workshopand Image Transfer Workshop and is working on her fourth book with North Light Books.

Marisa Anne is an artist and textile designer living in Los Angeles, California, with Sean and Garbo. What started out as a desire to be a bit more creative one day a week while working a nine-to-five job, Creative Thursday grew into a full-time business (and a dream come true) featuring Marisa’s art, fabrics and her soon-to-be-released first book. She believes there will be more happiness in the world when everyone is creative and finds fulfillment in doing work and living a life they love. Marisa is the author of Creative Thursday and hopes that this book will be one small contribution to that greater vision, inspiring and encouraging everyone who reads it.
