Art at the Speed of Life!


Art at the Speed of Life is a new book created by the amazing Miss Pam Carriker, being published by Interweave Press. I am honored to be one of the contributing artists in this book, alongside other artist talents such as Julie Bergmann, Paulette Insall, Nancy Lefko, and Brandi Butcher-Isley, to name a few.

Pam's creative energy can inspire us all, as will this whole book I am sure! Below is the Product Description from Amazon:

Product Description
Need high-energy inspiration when your life gets crazy and your art keeps getting pushed to the back burner? Offering terrific mixed-media art projects, as well as tips for getting organized and inspired, Art at the Speed of Life is a treasure chest of ideas for the artist whose creative goals sometimes get stymied by the frantic pace of modern life. Author and mixed-media artist Pam Carriker proves that art and life can coexist peacefully, productively, and happily. Making things every day can be a joyful reality instead of just wishful thinking.

Each chapter in Art at the Speed of Life includes both essays and project ideas from a variety of contributors, including Paulette Insall, Nancy Lefko, and Brandi Butcher-Isley. The projects are inspiring, yet easy to complete on a tight schedule, and include techniques such as assemblage, image transfer, and collage. A bonus seven-day journal project helps you track your work as you go. With a unique combination of time management tips and advice, inspiring essays, and projects designed to fit into busy schedules, Art at the Speed of Life will help you live your dream of making art every day.
