Susan Walker, Artist/Instructor/Consultant Check her out on facebook: Susan Walker Art. Here's info from her page: Mixed media is her medium of choice. Building up layers of paint, texture, stamping and just about anything else lending to the topic. Inspiring words can be the focus or whispers among the images she draws and paints. She feels the world around us is filled with criticism and pressure where our own thoughts and being gets forgotten. Sometimes she states it boldly as the focus of the piece or just under the surface and amongst the work for the discerning eye to discover. Susan continues to work with pen/ink and watercolor using them in her art and in her almost daily sketchbook journals.
Juliane Gorman, Instructor/Consultant website: www.felt-happiness.com. Here's a quote from her website: GREETINGS, I’m Juliane Gorman and I first felted many years ago as a student at the Rhode Island School of Design. It was an extracurricular, haphazard affair; with dancing and snow. And it was entirely different from the weaving that brought me to textiles. For my senior project I created a series of sculptural headpieces. After graduation, I studied proper millinery under Mrs. Albrizio at Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC and worked in costume shops. And then I stopped. And I stopped making things. For many years the enchantment of felt and hats lay dormant. Serendipitously, a library book on making wet felted hats revived me. It was my Eureka Moment: I knew what to do with my life and how to be happy. This is how Felt-Happiness came about. And now, ideas flow and hats too!
