    The Folk & Decorative Artists' of Australia is the proud sponsor of Linda Lock, CDA who will be visiting Australia in June. Linda will be involved in teaching and demonstrating with Jo Sonja's Artists' Colours at the Craft & Quilt Fair Darling Harbour, followed by a series of workshops in the week after this event. For further details please click on the link below.

    Linda lives in British Columbia on the west coast of Canada. She is an acclaimed artist who has published many books, the latest of which feature mixed media/altered art. Her work evokes nostalgia and a timelessness that really gives pieces depth and visual interest. Be prepared to be challenged and have your perception of mixed media stretched.

    Below are pictures of her projects and front covers of some of her books.

    We received these images of projects done by Sue Larsen in Woolgoolga who is coordinating an all day Scrapbook Matharon in June to raise funds for her local high school's P&C Association.

    Scrapbooking has proved to be not only a widely enjoyed pastime but an art form in its own right and scrappers come from far and wide to enjoy this popular fun event - further details are in the Chroma Events section. In the meantime, there are some great "off the page" ideas here, including two reversible book holders that can be used to store recipes or scrapbook pages. The last one is the work of Sue's friend Trish Rheinberger and features Jo Sonja's Crackle Medium,

    All projects were done using Jo Sonja's Artists' Colours and Mediums.

    Thought I'd mention this one week painting Holiday in Switzerland at end of June 2009. It is with Bob Hughes, an experienced Atelier Interactive artist from the UK. For more information see his Chroma teacher's website:
