I've lived in the Rogue Valley for almost 30 years. I am married to a wonderful man and work as a nurse at a local hospital. I live with a menagerie of cats and dogs. I am a Master Gardener and I've just started keeping bees! I love to paint and draw but when I discovered Zentangle I fell in love. No artistic "talent" is needed. Truly, it's an artform that anyone can do and enjoy. I am a Certified Zentangle Instructor(CZT) authorized to sell Zentangle products. As classes progress we will explore more intricate tangles and "ZIA"s (Zentangle Inspired Art)

Nancy is a graduate of the Design Department at UC Davis and holds a secondary teaching credential in Art and English. Unfortunately, her teaching career was brief due to moving about for her husband’s career, and soon thereafter she was busy raising twin boys. Her desire for painting in oils and acrylics, which was also encouraged by her artist mother, had to take a backseat in those early years and it wasn’t until 4 ½ years ago that the interest was rekindled, but his time watercolor became her passion. She has studied with two instructors in the Grants Pass area and signs up for every workshop that scheduling will permit. Her paintings have taken many first place ribbons and People’s Choice awards in local studio shows as well as the Josephine County Fair. She is a Past President of the Josephine County Artists Association, a member of the Rogue Gallery, the Grants Pass Museum of art and the Southern Oregon Society of Artists. Eager to share her watercolor passion with others , she looks forward to working with the folks at The Artist Attic to bring affordable, interesting and challenging classes to the Southern Rogue Valley.

Anyone can do this, asserts Diane Wiggins regarding her favorite pastime.
It doesn’t require artistic ability, an elaborate art studio, computer software, or even a computer.
Yet, upon viewing the greeting cards Wiggins hand-fashions in her Eagle Point home, observers marvel at the results–intricate beauty and professionalism that rivals Hallmark’s finest.
To employ her skill, Wiggins redefines the expression, “rubber stamp.” A simple image—either of rubber or pliable acrylic—glued onto a wooden or solid acrylic block, forms the foundation on which she builds. She applies ink, then stamps the basic design pattern onto card stock. Utilizing individual touches, she may add special or 3-dimensional effects. These might be produced through crimper tools, jewel-simulating metallic brads, colorful paints, and markers.“I liked this so much, I wanted to get others to enjoy it too,” Wiggins said of the craft she embarked upon circa 1998. “There’s something about creating a card, and having somebody receive and enjoy it, that evokes a person’s ‘inner child.’”
Over a decade ago, at the behest of a craft store proprietor in Southern California, she started teaching card making to their other customers. Wiggins has since provided instruction in central California, Hawaii, and Oregon, as well. An Oregonian for almost four years now, she taught at Scrapbook King, her part-time employer in Medford, from 2007 until they closed in September of 2009.Currently she teaches hands-on courses of 2½ hours’ duration, either in her local residence, or at Scrappy Crafts in Phoenix., Oregon.
Classes are priced at just $20 each - Open for groups of six to eight adults.

Like many crafters today, Marti Arrell tried many different mediums until she found just the right fit.
Throughout her life she has always been involved with some kind of craft. As a child, she started with embroidery, then moved on to crochet and knitting when she got married. From there, she got into crewel embroidery and started dabbling in quilting while attending college. She progressed to tole and china painting when her girls were little, and eventually went back to quilting when her smallest started school full time. Marti also started the Azalea Quilters Guild in Brookings, which is still going strong today. After all the many different crafts Marti had been involved in, it wasn’t until she picked up a rubber stamp for the first time that she found her true love – card making and ATC’s. She took that passion and bought a rubber stamp and scrapbooking store, Creating Lasting Memories, in Brookings. She owned the shop for 6 ½ years and then sold it back to the original owner, who still has the business to this day.
After moving to Medford several years ago, Marti found she really missed the companionship of fellow crafters and decided to get back into teaching. She is currently teaching Introduction to Copics, which will be a beginning class as well as a refresher course for those who have previously attended a beginning class. Unlike most beginning Copic classes taught, she will not only introduce the student to the markers, but then immediately guide them in creating their first Copic colored card. She hopes to continue to teach a Copic card every month. Marti has her Standard and Intermediate Copic Certification certificates, as well as her certificates from Copic Workshops from 2013 and 2014.
