 TRISH ALGER of Texas

Fun things like googly eyes on handcut hearts, slipped into school lockers, sparked my obsession with cardmaking. Nothing is safe from the mixed-media transformation; canvas, paper, metal, found items. Creativity is a daily endeavor whether in the studio, the kitchen, or the camera lens. I love to spark that creativity in others with a nudge in the right direction.


Currently I reside in Central Texas, with my husband of 31 years and grandmother of six. A mixed-media artist active in our local art community; a BFA student and hobby-esque writer. I enjoy instructing others that there is an answer to the question “can I,create that?”…YES you can!

 TRISHA NEAL of Missouri

Thanks to my dear mother, who kept the house well stocked in art supplies and good art books, and who set the example by continually working on different art and craft projects, taking me to galleries, art shows, and on forays to the art supply store, I have an undeniable, ingrained love of all things art.

Thank you very much to DIY Design Studio™ for this opportunity; I enjoy working with the creative and talented design team.

STEPHANIE SIATTA of Arizona

I am so pleased to be able to use my art talents in a FUN and productive manner at DIY Design Studio™.  I am a wife. Mom to 2 kids growing up too fast and an artist.   Like so many of us, I have worked at things that did not allow my truly creative side to be alive, but now I can!    I still have my home based job of medical transcriptionist to pay for my art/craft supplies!

I love mixed media, assemblage, watercolor, acrylics, DIY projects to refinish old things into upcycled or recycled treasures.  I have my grandmother's bedroom dresser and vanity bought in 1948 and it is still being used in my bedroom!  You can't buy them like that anymore.  However it has changed colors. been stripped, stained, redone and looks great AGAIN!     I guess that's how I feel sometimes, strip away the old, see the new.
   


LYNEEN JESSE of Washington

I am honored to have the opportunity to work with the talented members of the DIY Design Studio™  Design Team. I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, have been married for 16 years to a terrific guy. We have one precious fur baby, Lilly.

I began creating during my youth with my siblings under the guidance of our mother making gifts for grandparents. Mom always kept a "make it box" with art supplies. We would dabble in frosting when she decorated cakes. At one time, I even competed in cake decorating. As time passed my medium of choice was paper. I love ephemera, vintage embellishments and pattern paper, which may be out of control! Rubber stamping has been a love of mine since before rubber stamping was popular. I am the proud owner of thousands of stamps. Like many I found other mediums to work into paper crafting and my style has evolved over time. Assemblage, altered art and vintage have become some of my favorites. I teach classes at local shops, there are three pieces of advice I like to pass on to my students, “There’s no right or wrong way to create!” "You never make mistakes, only opportunities." And “You are your own worst critic!”

In my spare time you will might find me in craft stores, antique or thrift shops, yard sales and auctions always on the hunt for old paper, buttons, lace, ephemera and anything else that might be useful in future projects! I have been published in several issues of Rubber StampMadness, Take Ten, Stampers Sampler, West Sound Home&Garden, The Best of Stampington & Company HandCrafted Vol.7, severeal JUST Steampunk publication's and   more.  Find more of my art on my blog: http://dreamingofcastles.blogspot.com/


JEAN MOORE of Arizona
Owner of AlteredPages.com and DIYDesignStudio™

Jean has always been involved in art and crafts (as so many of us have). From paper to painting to clay to professional interior designer, it’s been color, texture and a love of all things beautiful. Transplanted from the East Coast to Arizona provided a new look at the beauty of America.

Kindness is the utmost importance, support and sharing good things make the world go round! Jean is recognized for insisting on the BEST customer service and encouraging Design Team members to do their very best. Without great customers and a solid Design Team, there would be no companies.

Words that paint a portrait of Jean; Determined, effective, adaptable, dedicated, caring and efficient.
