Bumbleweedz: Art that makes you smile!

Art by Dara Barth

I come across lots of very awesome art on etsy and I am always amazed by all the incredible talent. I am not sure when I discovered Dara Barth's art but I remember that I was very impressed by her artistic style. Her art really does make me smile.  Her mark making appears expressive and there is movement and energy that translates into her art. The colors are vivid and capture a child like vision.  What more can I say........her art is absolutely amazing. Please do check out her etsy shop and take a look at all the incredible art.

Traci Bautista

Artist and designer Traci Bautista

Traci Bautista is a mixed media artist, designer and teacher. I first discovered Traci Bautista's work in 2012 when I was just beginning to learn about mixed media art.  Recently I have taken a few of her online classes and am just loving them. What I really love about Traci is her easy going nature and her immense creativity. Her art is colorful, vibrant and so inspirational. Visit her website for some info on all that she does and take a look at all the classes she offers online. I am currently taking some classes with her and they are very informative and lots of fun!
