Carmi’s in RubberStampMadness!

Beverly and I spent a really enjoyable day trolling the funky stores on Queen Street, eating, drinking coffee and talking. In fact, I talked so much my lips are chapped. (I think Beverly’s are too).
When I got home, lo and behold there was the latest issue of RubberStampMadness and in it the article I wrote on Carmi called “Going Full Tilt: Carmi Cimicata shares her secrets for creative success.” (I was almost afraid to read it in case I got anything mixed up!)
The article is four pages long and features several pieces of her art along with a fab shot of her studio, and Carmi with the boys (Shadow and Shamus). What I really loved about writing this feature on Carmi was that I felt inspired to focus more on what I really enjoy doing, and to be more organized.
It’s always a privilege to have another artist share creative insights with you. While we respond instinctively to the visual, we don’t always realize how much effort goes into producing the finished work. When I’m awake at two in the morning and toiling away in Photoshop, I often think about Carmi and wonder if she's burning the early morning oil like I am. Anyway, don’t take my word for how interesting she is—read the article!
P.S. Beverly, we will use all that stuff we bought today, won’t we?
