Artist Spotlight: Kelli Nina Perkins

Kelli Nina Perkins is a mixed media artist and librarian living on the shores of Lake Michigan. She has a master's degree in information from the University of Michigan. For over a decade, Kelli has been making art that prizes the everyday ephemera of our lives, incorporating the common flotsam of discarded life into art that speaks to the heart. 

She's a fantastic teacher and will be teaching at Art Camp for Women in October. You WANT to be there. I do. It's in the beautiful Colorado Rocky Mountains (oh how I miss them!) and you'll be playing to your hearts content with some of the funnest supplies, and funnest people there are. Really. Even if you can't go - spread the word and tell your friends.

Kelli's  SPOON  POETRY tutorial is one of my all time favorites.
I have the spoons, I have the ink and the words and a place to hang a spoon poetry garland. It's only a matter of time.

Now head over to her blog and read her review of BEAD IT LIKE YOU MEAN IT.
