This week’s EBSQ Blogger of the Week creates magic with her polymer clay and if that wasn’t enough, she also is a skilled Trompe L’oeil painter! I feel blessed to have such a talented artist in my midst.
Who and where are you?
I’m Lauren Abrams and I live in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.
How did you get started art blogging?
I started blogging in the last year or so to try to connect with other artists working in polymer clay. In fact, that’s the name of my blog “Find my way with Polymer Clay”….I know of others who work in this medium and I love their blogs. Some of these bloggers post work by other polymer artists, and of course, their own work. I’ve found that people who work with this relatively new medium are very generous with advice and inspiration.
Any tips for other EBSQ art bloggers?
I try to post as often as possible, which is usually when I’ve done some work I’m happy with, or have been mentioned in someone else’s blog or an Etsy treasury. My goal is to post every day lol…
What’s your musical inspiration of choice when you’re working in your studio?
My ipod contains pretty much nothing but classic rock…a guilty pleasure when I’m working.
What’s coming next from your easel?
I’ve just recently joined the instructors at CraftEdu.com and I’ll be teaching some polymer classes as well as the trompe l’oeil painting I’ve done for over 25 years. It’s an unusual teaching platform, with slideshow and text, narration and a forum site where students will be able to interact with the instructors. They’ve just launched a closed Beta and hope to work out any bugs and get it open to the public very soon.
Thank you Lauren for being an EBSQ Blogger of the Week!
