Carin in RubberStampMadness

Concentration is a problem for many of us when it comes to our art. We’re attracted to so many different techniques and projects that we often feel spread too thin. Where to start? What to do?
But Carin Brahm never seems to have that problem. Stamping is her starting point and nearly everything she does takes the medium father and pushes the envelope. She makes cards, artist’s books, framed art and much, much more. What Carin has achieved is amazing when you consider that she works full time and teaches too.
When I was interviewing her for the September/October 2007 issue of RubberStampMadness a few months ago, I was struck by Carin’s dedication and focus. It’s unwavering. And to think that 12 years ago she wasn’t doing any art at all!
The thing with Carin is that she found the medium that clicked with her and then responded to the call. What I learned from Carin is that when you find something that really resonates with you, jump right in and give it your all!
