Kristie Taylor - Team Coordinator

I just love art! I live and breathe art and find inspiration in the smallest things. I love to walk in nature, absorbing the colors and textures around me. Sometimes the smallest thing can trigger and idea and it sets my mind to reeling at all the endless possibilities! I also love to instill this love for artist freedom in other people, so of course I adore teaching and revel in the fire that I see in people's eyes when they realize that they have created something beautiful. An open heart scrub nurse by trade, I use my art as my time to seek inner peace. A place to rest my heart and my mind and allow the spirits of creativity to flow through me to the canvas. Sometimes I get lost in the creative process and only step back into reality when I get hungry or thirsty..lol! I Recently relocated to Florida with my hubby David, three of my four awesome kiddos and three furbabies. Although they do think I am just a little nuts sometimes, my family is very supportive of my artist life and encourage me often.

 

Jenn DuBell

HI! My name is Jenn DuBell a.k.a. Yvonne Bijoux. I live in the beautiful green state of Oregon, I am a mother of two wonderful grown kids, engaged to a wonderful man, and grandmother to three beautiful grandsons! I started scrapbooking years ago and have enjoyed drawing and painting since I was a child. I picked up scrapbooking again a few years ago when I became a grandma and it has just progressed into much more. I now love all paper crafting from cards and scrapping to tags and mini books! I also enjoy mixed media and altering things. I love vintage inspiration, shabby chic, steampunk, and modern. I am very honored and excited to join the Art Anthology team!

I hope I can inspire others to have fun, get messy, and create beautiful things!

 

 

Marleen van Meerendonk

My name is Marleen van Meerendonk. Born and raised in and around Amsterdam, the Netherlands. I made a lot of detours to eventually end up settling down in the Eindhoven area. I live there with my husband, son, dogs and bird. Being creative is a way of life, I can’t live without it. In 2007 I started with scrapbooking. Now many years later I see myself as a Mixed Media girl who also likes to design digitally. Now and then I design stencils (for Art Anthology) and stamps (for Unity Stamp Company). I also felt, knit, crochet, sew and create jewelry. My creativity works the best when I have no deadline. When my flow is going it can’t be stopped. My work has been, more than once, published in 3 different Dutch magazines. I also was a member different Design Teams National and International. I’m happy to design with and for Art Anthology again.

Toni Burks

Hi there, I'm Toni Burks from sunny California. Mother of a beautiful daughter and my four legged little boy named Bubba. My adventure with scrapbooking began probably 25 years ago when my daughter was very active in sports and I wanted to be able to keep all those precious memories alive. Through the years my style has definitely evolved due to the plethora of talented & inspirational artists and amazing products that are available for us to enjoy. I love texture, splashes of color, a taste of edginess but with a “well loved” vintage feel. The last several years I have really enjoyed getting messy with mixed media. I love the free expression it allows. I have been known to pick up items off the ground to use in my art…. I love to use the unexpected in my projects so altered art is also a favorite of mine. I am passionate about pretty things and not so pretty things, I love ruffles but also grunge, I want my house in order but my studio table is a (beautiful) mess. So turn on some music, get a cup of coffee and let’s get messy with our art.

 

 

Valerie Andrieux

"French designer, mom of two, I started scrapbooking more than 10 years ago when I lived Texas. I did move a lot since then, but my crafty stash is always traveling with me so I can create where ever I am.
Fussy cutting and bright colors are my favorite things in crafting, but mixed media has grow in my heart too... I love create scrapbook layouts, cards, altered objects and canvas. This hobby is now a big part of my life and I try to create something everyday. I share my work as often as I can on different social medias (bonjourscrap is my nickname), and I can wait to share my projects with Art Anthology products !"

 

 

 

Ellie Knol

I am Ellie Knol-Groenveld. Iwas born in Brasil, lived there for 9 years, when we moved to South Africa. At age 23 I moved to the Netherlands, where I married the love of my life. We’ve got 4 children and one son in law.  We will be celebrating our 30th. wedding anniversary in, 2017.  Where has time gone? HAPPY! I am a christian…
I started stamping about 7 years ago, after I’ve been watercoloring for about 12 years. I think I finally got to my ‘own’ style.  
What’s my style? I think others will mention my use of color, my very ‘own’ style with stamped collages, my preference of nature stamps; I get positive comments on these issues.
I LOVE to play with paper, stamps and color! It’s the most enjoyable craft in the world, for sure! I think of myself as just one more crafter who likes to get messy and get lost in creating a happy mess.

 

Josefine Fouarge

Hi, my name is Josefine. I was born in Germany, but am living in California since 2014. I started crafting shortly after I moved here and have tried several techniques since then. I started with scrapbooking, but switched to card making, mixed media and art journaling quickly. I love creating without any boundaries or limits. It helps me relax and totally focus on the art itself. My favorite projects are either messy and/ or snarky, so if my craft table didn't end up in a chaos or if I haven't giggled during my project, I've done something wrong. I'm so excited to be part of the Art Anthology design team and can't wait to share my projects with you!

 

Maria Calderone

I’ve been living in the wonderful state of Pennsylvania for over 10 years now, but I was born and raised in New Jersey. I am happily married to my husband Danny, who is kind, caring and very supportive. I absolutely love being a mom to my 4 boys – Jonathan, Vincent and twins, Andrew and Nicholas, not to mention we also have a super sweet Boxer named Dallas. I’m so fortunate to have them in my life, they truly make my everyday living so joyful and worthwhile. I love creating and designing anything I can get my hands on, I started out as a paper crafter in 2012 and have since progressed into altered art and mixed media. Whether it's cards, tags, layouts, art journals, canvas art or something I can alter… I love it all! My style is very eclectic, as I truly do enjoy creating anything from vintage/grunge to cutesy/shabby chic and Steampunk, although I do have a tendency to lean towards vintage shabby chic. Most of all, I will always welcome a challenge, as it is the best way to push myself to think outside the box and be more creative.
