Artist Spotlight: Jill Berry

Sketchbook Artist, Jill Berry is recently returned from three fabulous weeks of teaching in Italy. 
I can't wait to hear more - I SOOOO want to do that some day.


Her book, due out soon, is called Personal Geographies: Explorations in Mixed-Media Mapmaking. I can't wait to see it, having a personal attraction to maps - and art that explores maps and plans. Maybe it's my (long ago) studies of architecture, maybe it's just that Jill's work is gorgeous. You can pre-order it here.



She has a review of Bead It Like You Mean It on her blog and is giving away a copy. 

Head over to her blog to leave a comment for your chance to win. 

Remember that the DVD is on sale only for the next few days. On October 12th the regular price will go into effect, so if you want it for $19.95 buy it soon. I think you will really like it. If you want your local shop to carry it please have them contact me!

Carol Sloan and Sue Bleiwiess also still have giveaways open so you can try your luck there as well.

I've enjoyed your "Artists Spotlights"--they are inspirational. I was interested in your tutorial on mounting small art quilts on canvas--can a primed (gesso)canvas be used "as is" with no further painting? Thanks, joni

Why yes, of course you can.
