Share the Love: Stencil Girl Artists

by Amy Bowerman

I had a fantastic artful weekend at Art is You in Stamford!  On Friday night I got to meet some of my favorite Artists and have dinner with some of the Designers and Creative team members of Stencil Girl.   Today I want to “Share the Love” and introduce you to the creative ladies and gents I met at Art is You!  Some of them you may already know and if you don’t  you’ll want to get to know them once you see the amazing artwork they have to share :)

Share the Love: Stencil Girl Artists | Pluckingdaisies.com #StencilGirl

Stencil Girl Stencils are artist designed stencils and WOW!  What a wonderful bunch of artists they are!  You can check out all the fabulous designs and shop by Artist HERE.  If you need  project inspiration for how to use your Stencil Girl Stencils swing by the Stencil Girl Talk Blog for oodles of tutorials and creative stenciling ideas.

Seth Apter

First up on the list of inspiring Stencil Girl Artists is Seth Apter of The Altered Page.  Seth is an extremely talented Mixed-Media artist and just as nice as he is creative!  I was so excited to meet him in person at Art is You.

I love Seth’s designs for Stencil Girl and grabbed this one on Friday night while visiting his classroom.  I can’t wait to use  it on my Globe Project.

The Mixed Media Artist by Seth Apter

If there is any artist who knows how to “Share the Love” it’s Seth Apter.  His new book “The Mixed Media Artist” (available for pre-order HERE) features the work of 30 different Mixed-Media artists!  You can learn more about the Artists in  Seth’s blog series 30 Artists 30 Days  and enter to win a copy of the book simply by leaving a comment.  Interact with the artists of “The Mixed Media Artist” at the Twitter Book Launch Party  tomorrow October 16 2013 9-10 EST .


Marjie Kemper

Marjie Kemper is super inspiring in the way she flings ink and paint!  She sure knows her way around a stencil and always amazes me with her stenciling techniques. It’s no surprise with her stenciling prowess that Stencil Girl snatched her up as a creative team member.

I’ve known Marjie for a while through blogging and have taken a few of Marjie’s classes.   Art is You was the first time we got to “hangout” outside of blogland and the classroom…what fun! :)  It’s because of  her that I got to meet all the lovely ladies from Stencil Girl.  Thanks Marjie!

Carolyn Dube

I became an admirer of Carolyn Dube’s work when I started participating in Art Journal Everyday.  I love her colorful approach to art and her way with words when it comes to explaining her process.  You will see what I mean when you check out her latest tutorial using her own line of Stencil Girl Stencils.

Hi Amy! What a truly lovely writeup about our company. You are totally awesome. Maria told me how much she enjoyed meeting you. I am just so bummed that I wasn’t there too :(
Hope our paths cross some day.


2 Jessica Sporn October 19, 2013 at 7:17 am

Amy – what a wonderful tribute to Stencil Girl! Thank you for linking to our individual blogs as well. I so enjoyed meeting you — you are sweet, funny, and a great observer of “the scene.” And I will never look at ponies the same way again….

Jessica the pleasure was all mine!! So wonderful to meet you and all the girls :). As for the ponies I don’t think Michael DeMeng will look at them the same either…I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that Im probably the first person to take one of his classes and make a Rainbow Unicorn..lol!



4 Marjie Kemper October 18, 2013 at 7:05 pm

Amy, thanks so much for the shout-out. Loved hanging out with you outside of the classroom, and looking forward to CHA, which will be here before we know it. xx

Amy ~ thank you for the kind words… made me smile! I am in a little bit of an Art-Is-You hangover, not from the crappy martini we were served, but from the absence of fun & magical people like you I got to meet and hang out with! I seriously will never be able to think of My Little Pony again without thinking of your “wash & curl” story ~ nearly peed my pants! xxoo

Wow, such an amazingly talented and creative group! Thanks so much for sharing the 411, Amy!

of course like your web site however you need to check the spelling
on several of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very troublesome to inform
the truth on the other hand I’ll definitely come again again.

Oh how lovely to be able to meet these amazing artists (would love to meet Marjie, particularly, in real life!). I love these stencils too, have one which I won from Marjie and hope others will be available here in the UK soon! You must be over the moon Amy! Hugs, Anne x
