Jenn Mason is a mixed-media artist who studied fine art at the University of Michigan School of Art and Design. Her background in textiles and graphic design, along with her creative upbringing, have shaped her views on daily creativity. “One of my biggest goals in life,” Jenn says, “is to continually strive to help other people live their lives more creatively.” Jenn enjoys working as an editor for the Cloth Paper Scissors brand, which includes many special publications, innovative new electronic/hybrid publications, video workshops and art retreats. “I enjoy the challenge of bringing fantastic mixed-media art techniques and process to the readers of our magazines. Every day is filled with art and artists — not a bad gig,” she says.

When she’s not at the office, Jenn enjoys working in collage, assemblage and encaustics. Her artwork is held in public and private collections and has been shown in galleries and exhibitions in the Boston area.


Tonia Jenny (formerly Tonia Davenport) is the acquisitions editor and senior content developer for North Light Mixed Media. She is also a mixed-media artist and a jewelry designer. Tonia has authored two North Light titles or her own: Frame It! and Plexi Class and she is also the editor of Mixed-Media Paint Box. When she’s not making art, cooking, reading or doodling, you can always find her on Facebook.

Since acquiring her first book nearly ten years ago, Tonia has helped to make North Light at Create Mixed Media the leader in mixed-media inspiration. Her vision for each project begins by getting to know the passions and strengths of the artist, laying the foundation for the best book, video or blog series possible. She then works with her North Light “family” of developers and designers to develop a project that not only engages you, but also is a direct reflection of the artist.

Tonia’s favorite part about her job comes working with so many talented artists. “Each time I get to work with an artist/author on a book, it’s like having my own private workshop, and I love learning new art-making techniques that I then can later use in my own creative work.”


Ricë Freeman-Zachery writes, stitches, and blogs from Midland, The-Middle-Of-Nowhere, Texas, in a house with orange and purple and pink walls and rooms full of work tables, sewing machines, and garments to alter. She travels with her photographer husband, The Ever-Gorgeous Earl, writing and taking photos of art retreats, artists’ studios, and creative adventures of all kinds. They logged over 15,000 miles in 2010 attending art retreats and book signings and just generally being overwhelmed by sheer mileage.

Ricë writes artist profiles for various publications and is the author of Living the Creative Life: Ideas and Inspiration from Working ArtistsCreative Time and Space: Making Room for Making Art and Destination: Creativity, all from North Light Books.

Ricë is not good at relaxing, loves being productive, and thinks vacations are overrated. She likes coffee, embroidery floss and country western dancing; although she’s not crazy about the music, she’s found it’s tough to do the western swing to Thelonius Monk.

Her goal in life is to get everything done before she dies.

    • Our events are scheduled on Eastern Standard Time (EST), so if you are in a different time zone, you will need to take scheduling into account — for example 1 PM EST = 12 PM CST, and so on…
