Meet Roben-Marie Smith


Roben-Marie provides ideas, inspiration and quality instruction for hobbyists and art entrepreneurs. She teaches artists from beginners to those making a living from their art through her blog and her popular online workshops.

As an artist, blogger, woman of faith and the owner of Paperbag Studios, LLC, her mission is to serve others and help them get the most out of their art as a hobby, or as a business. Her own desire to learn and unquenchable curiosity keeps her fingers messy and her heart happy.

Roben-Marie has been an artist for the last ten years, and is self-taught, so she believes that anyone can cultivate their creative spark. She’s taught mixed media art workshops and retreats across the U.S. and her work has been featured in countless books and industry magazines including: Journal It!, The Artist Unique, Creative Letting 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."
