Lisa Daria Kennedy grew up along the northeast edge of the Hockomock Swamp in Massachusetts.
Since 2009, she has committed to an on-going daily painting project. As a young adult cancer survivor, she discovered living is not just surviving. Each painting seeks to give a voice to the fiber of the everyday.

Hi Arty Souls:) Sylwia here with mail art project:) I love altering envelopes and this time I decided to play with heavy body gesso by Liquitex. I used it also with Donna's 'She chooses' stencil. After that I added some vintage tissue paper and watercolors by Daniel Smith. Love the combination of gesso, craft paper and watercolors. To add contrast I used two Donna's stamps: 'Live your art' and 'Tangled leaf'.' I hope you will enjoy the video tutorial!!! And see you soon!xx Sylwia (TandiArt)
Hi there, it’s Stephanie here with another video tutorial how to create a „abstract landscape“ with the stencilpoppy field from the Artistry Series. I moved out of my comfort zone and used other colors than usual and I also have dared something abstract. Have fun and enjoy.
My name is Cristin Stevenson, and I am a mixed media artist and art journaler. I live in Missouri with my husband and two pugs.
I am a full time artist through mixed media artwork, teaching in collaborative online courses, and creating content via Patreon.
I love working in all mediums - whether it be canvas, paper or an art journal and I consider mixed media to be "home". My work is experimental in nature, so I was incredibly excited when Donna asked me to be a part of Find Out Friday. I love discovering new ways to use new supplies and sharing those discoveries with others.
Welcome to another Artist Gang Tuesday episode. Today it´s Denisa here. I´m an European girl enthusiastic about mixed media. As we´re still having winter time here I decided to escape the cold days and dive into the summer time . I made a poppy canvas full of bright colours. Its size is 30 x 30cm. This time I was playing around with rich texture and my fave material - wire. Nothing too complicated, just some spontaneous ideas that came on my mind while creating. Hope you´ll enjoy my process. Enjoy watching.
Joanne Barby is an award winning artist from the South Coast of NSW, in Australia. Her artwork has been exhibited in many group shows, Galleries and is hung in private collections all over the world. She is one of only four artists worldwide that is endorsed by PanPastel on their “Paint, Draw, Blend” website http://paintdrawblend.com/artists/joanne-barby-2/. Because of her unique drawing style with PanPastel (“Color Mapping”), she conducts regular PanPastel workshops and demonstrations all over Australia and America. She particularly loves bringing out the creativity and renewed passion for art in others and feels she gets as much out of the workshops as her students. She strongly believes that the process of making art, is as important as the final result. Joanne's inspiration comes from truly “seeing” the beauty of life that surrounds us, from the sunlight hitting the waves of the ocean, drawing us in with its colors, shape and light. To the characters and personalities of some of the wildlife and birds she paints.
Hello Donna Downey Gang fans, Fiona here with you today to share a couple of little wooden panels I painted up.
I'm so excited about wood as a substrate lately. I've been learning from Mindy Lacefields "Permission to Play" online class and now I'm totally addicted to wood as a substrate and ephemera collage!
This little pair came together in a bit of a hap hazard way as you'll see in the video. I did more procrastinating that i did actual creating. I share with you a little tip I use to get strated and push aside those unsure thoughts that creep in some days when the blank canvas is just staring back at you.
I hope you enjoy the process and the little treasures that evolved from it. I'll see you all again soon.
Today I want to show you a mixed media Painting The Blue Jar I created with collage, paint and pens and the awesome stencils petit pot, keyhole splatter and je taime. Of course I also have a video tutorial for you how to create this. Do you remember the little cat from my last video? Here she is. But I couldn't make up my mind to adhere her. What do you think? Does it fit her into this painting?
