My name is Roben-Marie and I provide ideas, inspiration and quality instruction for hobbyists and art entrepreneurs. I teach artists from beginners to those making a living from their art through my blog and my popular online workshops.
As an artist, blogger, woman of faith and the owner of Paperbag Studios, LLC, my mission is to serve others and help them get the most out of their art as a hobby, or as a business. My own desire to learn and unquenchable curiosity keeps my fingers messy and my heart happy.
I have been a working artist for the last ten years, and am self-taught, so I believe that anyone can cultivate their creative spark. I've taught mixed media art workshops and retreats across the U.S. and my work has been featured in countless books and industry magazines including: Journal It!, The Artist Unique, Creative Lettering Workshop, Art Saves, Exhibition 36, Journal Revolution, A World of Artist Journal Pages, 1000 Artist Journal Pages, "Somerset Studio," "Art Journaling," "Green Craft," "Artist' Cafe," "Artful Blogging," "Legacy," "Somerset Memories," "Somerset Life," "Somerset Apprentice" and "Somerset Gallery."
