** I am proud to welcome back Tanya - another one of the Amazing Crafting Products alumni creatives. Her unique and original creations with a NOLA flair will have you dancing to your own creative beat.

At an early age Tanya knew she was an artist. She even convinced her non-artistic friends to take art classes with her when she was 9. Unfortunately like many artists, she has to have a "real" job to pay the bills. Tanya says, “By day I am a mild mannered (ok, not so mild) information technology trainer and by night I am an artist”.

Tanya has a BFA in Fine Arts/ Painting and Drawing and a MA in Medieval Art History. Having fell in love with renaissance art her junior year in college (while attending a summer art program in Italy), she was hooked and changed her major from graphic design to fine arts.

Tanya taught graphic design for a few years was a museum curator at the state archives and ended up in Higher Ed. No, not teaching art, working with faculty support and training.

In 2012, Tanya opened Create Studios, an Arts and Carafes art studio in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Attendees bring in wine and other refreshments while creating various craft projects.

“I continue to create because it is something that is necessary of me, such as breathing.” Tanya’s medium is anything from watercolors, jewelry to paper crafts. You can follow Tanya at her blog at  {Proud AMP Alumni}

** Maria is a fabulous artist and really thinks out of the box... you have to see what she can do with new products, duck tape and your "run of the mill" crafting supplies. 

I’m a crafter and CHA Designer. I have been creating all types of crafts and one of a kind designs for over 10 years. I love to paint, make my own beads and charms. I have learned so many techniques and have worked with all different types of materials over the years. I love to challenge myself into learning what I find interesting and incorporate this into what I already like to do. My favorite part of crafting/designing is the freedom of creating what I envision, and be able to share what I love with others. As a mother of three very creative young adults, the best part of being creative is to be able to share my love for art with them.

Creativity is everywhere, in everything and in everyone! You can follow Maria at her blog "What is Creativity??".
