SuzDavisOrnament

Suz Davis celebrates Halloween with a series of fun, childlike pieces full of both design flair and recycled bits and bobs. She sells her work on Etsy, all the while sidling around the midwest region of the US (“I’d like to eventually land in Oregon. That seems like home for some reason.”) in a “travel-ready camper” with her husband and son, Elijah.  READ MORE

“Can you think of a more satisfying way to live than making a dancing monkey in a tutu?” ask Chris Chomick and Peter Meder. Their answer to this dilemma is an emphatic no!

Carolee Clark turns everyday objects into Magickal ones with her own creative spell: fantastic illustrations, faux textures, wonderful patterns and bits of decoupage thrown in for good measure. Her new projects typically disappear quickly on eBay after a post about them on her blog. She also keeps very busy with commissioned work, but she took a few minutes to chat with Artizen about her Halloween season and some of her favorite events and artist groups.  READ MORE
