    A Luscious, Inspiring Book

    There is a subtitle to this book that is " In The Studio and Behind The Scenes With Extraordinary Women". The list of the creative women included in this book is impressive: Vickie Howell, Pam Garrison, Alisa Burke, Danita, Theresa McFayden, Joanna Figueroa, Angela Cartwright - as well as Jo Packham and jenny Doh - to name a partial list of the included amazing talent in the book!

    Sometimes I tend to stay away from books and magazines that feature beautiful work spaces because I get jealous - I can't stand up in my own sewing area. Then I realize I am being childish and decide to have a look at the awesome places that people put together that allows them to create their art that makes us all so happy to look at!

    What I especially like about this book is the way it is set up. There are sections devoted to each artist; and the first two pages, aside from the utterly glorious photographs, described something about the artist and their view of their art-full lives. The following pages are filled with tid-bits like organizational tips,, how they stay inspired, what their choice of palette colors tend to be, where these creative personalities find inspiration, memories from their early childhood (or later) that recollect their first feelings about the joy to found in creating art. All of this information happily ensconced among glorious photography (think of how Stampington magazine photography look).

    When I first looked at this book I was not certain how I would feel about it - but it only took a few minutes to fall in love with it . There is so much to be learned from the artists that we admire. They "made it" because of the way they think and the way they work - so there is much to be gleaned by reading their personal stories and having a look into their private creative spaces.

    This is another winning Lark Books publication that I think belongs in the library of any creative person who wants some inspiration, some new ideas - or to learn something from from other amazingly talented, creative artists. I had to give this 5 stars - which I seldom do - because it really is a lusciously illustrated, very well done book!
