My name is Anita Houston, The Artful Maven. I love everything about Art, but mostly dabble in Mixed Media, Paper Crafting, Painting, and now Encaustics. I'm on the road a lot, teaching and demoing in the U.S. I truly love what I do, and get such a sense of fulfillment when participants in my classes radiate with the joy of creating something. You can see my work, tutorials, and video tutorials on my blog The Artful Maven Haven at www.artfulmaven.net .
