Hello and Welcome to my Blog ~ I love art of all kinds. Two of my favorites are polymer clay and paper art. I have shops on Etsy that feature both of my passions. I also love writing my blog and finding artists that have a passion for their craft and feature them. I hope your day is filled with sunshine, laughter and loads of creativity.

Maureen Carlson- Polymer Clay Artist

The magical creations of Maureen Carlson
ARTIST: Maureen Carlson has been creating mixed-media figures in clay and cloth since the 1970's, with her primary medium being polymer clay. From 1979 to 1991 she sold her clay characters, dolls and puppets at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival and other Twin Cities area venues. Recently, after many years of creating artwork whose primary purpose was instructional, she has begun once again making original artwork to sell at shows and through teaching venues. At the July 2010 Owatonna Art Festival she received an Award of Merit.
TELEVISION PERSONALITY: She has appeared on the Carol Duvall Show on HGTV as well as on Aleene’s Creative Living Television Show.

Polymer clay is the medium of choice for artist Maureen Carlson whose works, Grace Dancing and Contemplation, show the magic that can happen when one "sculpts with color". The wall-mounted pieces combines figurative sculpture with surface design techniques. The only paint used on this piece was for the facial features
