If there is a heaven on earth for mixed-media artists, it might be the Creativation 2018 show, an annual trade show for the craft industry that takes place over several days, hosted by the Association for Creative Industries. Manufacturers, designers, press, and buyers convened in Phoenix recently to see what’s new, track trends, take classes, and connect over a mutual love of art supplies, creativity, and art supplies. We were there, and would love to show you what’s on the horizon for your next inspired adventures. Check out our trend report on today's blog; link in bio!⠀

Here’s some pink to grab your attention.
I’m the sort of person who seriously hates being centre of attention - in which case, you may wonder why I’ve chosen a career that can involve such exposure.. Well, making art enables me to feel what it’s like to be in the spotlight. It gives me the opportunity to be the person I wish I was and to experience a good kind of fear - the kind of fear that helps you grow into a more confident and articulate human. If you’re shy and like to paint, I urge you to shove your art in front of people. It’s scary as hell. #thursdaythoughts
Pour some sugar on me @defleppard song came to my head for this one.
This painting has been standing on my couch for days because I just can’t decide what to do next. I keep turning it upside down to get some new perspective. Today the sunlight hitting the canvas came with new inspiration🙏☀️
