Popular mixed media artist featured at Spring Hill Library
Life is messy, and Spring Hill artist Kirsten Reed celebrates it. Her work is on display at the Spring Hill Public Library for the month of January.
Discovering mixed media art rocked her world. Several years ago Kirsten’s writing career had slowed, her children were older, and while she was enjoying being creative at home scrapbooking, making jewelry, cooking, and more, when she took an online class from Christy Tomlinson the light went on. “There weren’t any rules to mixed media art. I didn’t have to worry about doing it right. Mistakes were opportunities. I was addicted.”
She started creating art like a mad woman, using things around the house to transform a blank canvas into what she envisioned. She fueled her new passion by attending art retreats and subscribing to artsy blogs and magazines. Now she has a large collection of original art pieces available for sale, not only in their original form, but as prints, iPhone cases, and postcards.
You can enjoy her art at www.kirstenreeddesigns.com. She teaches monthly at Vintage615. The projects vary but for a fee you walk away with a finished piece of art. Snacks and drinks are provided and you are welcome to bring adult beverages.
You can attend a free workshop at the Spring Hill Library on Thursday, January 23 at 5:30 p.m. Kirsten will demonstrate how she layers bright colors and subtly hides affirmative images and messages. Participants will try out her methods and create a unique bookmark. No sign up is necessary.
