Claudine Hellmuth is also one of my first “crushes” in the world of techniques. I would say she influenced my style in the beginning a lot until I found my own style. When I saw her the first two times at CHA I was too shy to even talk to her…cause you know “fan struck”- I am just not one of the shouty fan persons – I usually keep my star strucks for myself 😉 – and it was by far not her fault, she is a wonderful person and I am happy to have her for CJS 2013!
Hello! I am an artist & illustrator. I enjoy combining my drawings with happy patterns to create quirky, retro-whimsical artworks that I license to the gift, home and craft markets.
In my 12 years as a full time illustrator, I have been featured in The New York Times, appeared on The Martha Stewart Show, HGTV and The DIY Network. My client list includes projects with major companies like Smart Car, Capitol Records and national publications such as The Saturday Evening Post.
I recently launched an exclusive paper crafting line with The Home Shopping Network and I continue to make live appearances on air with each new product release. In 2008, I developed a product line with Ranger Industries called Claudine Hellmuth Studio, of high-quality craft paints, mediums and canvas. I have also written three books and produced three DVDs, all centering on art and collage techniques that I teach in my workshops.
Originally from Orlando, Florida, I now live in Washington, DC with my husband Paul and our very spoiled pets.
I hope you enjoyed todays Jumpstart
