A special guest: Claudine Hellmuth!

I’m so honored to have a very special guest today: Claudine Hellmuth! I’ve been a HUGE fan of Claudine’s for ages, her work is so colorful and FUN!

If you’re not familiar with her work, Claudine is a mixed-media collage artist whose work has been chosen for fine art poster designs, featured in numerous magazines, used as book illustrations and published as greeting cards, gift products and more. She has appeared on the Martha Stewart Show and has written two books and has three instructional DVD’s.

Just look at this amazing piece that she created — and look at all the clever uses of circles!

I have it hanging right here by my computer as a reminder. Love that saying! The colors were chosen to go with the room, which is mainly lime and teal.
