Roben-Marie's mission is claiming happiness for herself and others through her rule-breaking combination of colors.

Artist, blogger, designer, instructor and owner of Paperbag Studios, LLC, Roben-Marie is often either geeking out behind her Mac or painting in her Florida home studio. As a woman of faith, she believes that serving others through inspiration, encouragement and instruction is a priority. A desire to learn and an unquenchable curiosity keeps her fingers messy and her heart happy.

Roben-Marie's work can be found in industry publications, art journaling books, her shop and on her blog. 

With over ten years in the industry, Roben-Marie's experience includes teaching mixed media art workshops at retreats and studios across the country.  She has also been published in over a dozen industry books and magazines and has been featured in podcasts and blog interviews.

Her unique blending of color, elements and design makes her pieces unmistakably recognizable. Her style has been translated to canvas, journals, fabric, stamps, artist papers and most notably, mail art and Art Pops™ artist cards and accessories.

With a following that regularly demands the next workshop and product line, Roben-Marie shares her joy of mixed media and inspires the artist inside every heart wondering if they have the courage to claim it.
