Artist Coordinator – Tracy Weinzapfel

Hi I’m Tracy!

What you see, is what you get….I put it all out there every day. I am the mom of three kids (22 old son & boy/girl 18 year old twins). I am a freelance painter and mixed media artist who draws my inspiration from nature. I live life with a creative edge and know that sharing my passion to inspire others is my calling.

I am a published multi-medium artist and have worked as an Art Educator with a variety of art manufacturers.  My work and art studio has been featured in multiple publications such as Better Homes & Gardens, Painting World Magazine, Home Depot Online Room Inspirations, Creating Keepsakes, Simple Scrapbooks, Just Mixed Media, Simply Crafts and I am a proud member of the Association of Creative Industries  and Society of Decorative Painters.  I am also one of the founders of where you can join me for fun and inspiring ideas!

Hello, my name is Maribel and I dedicate myself to the world of YouTube.  I am 41 years old, have three small children and I am from Spain.  I have been doing crafts since I was little.  My passion is the recycling of any object — but I play with other topics such as painting, scrapbooking and mixed media.

Martice Smith II

Hey, y’all! I’m Martice, a multi-media creative, photographer and graphic designer from Kansas City, Missouri. I have an insatiable craving for all things color and texture! I’d describe my artwork as a visual symphony of bright colors, patterns + florals with an abstract, graffiti twist. Sometimes, I like to go off-beat and combine traditional media with digital techniques.  

I show creatives how to bear hug their artsy superpowers by infusing a playful vibe into their art process. I do this by creating online courses, videos, and offering one-on-one creativity coaching sessions. In my free time, you can find me taking care of my jungle of tropical houseplants or watching cute panda videos!

I’ve been blessed to have my work exhibited, collected worldwide and featured in industry magazines and books like Cloth Paper Scissors, ‘A World of Artist Journal Pages’ and ‘Incite 3: The Art of Storytelling’, to name a few.

Mariví González

Hi, my name is Mariví González. I am from Malaga, Spain. Since childhood I have liked all kinds of crafts. Although I studied computer science and accounting, the path of life has led me to art. And I am very happy to be able to live from it.

I’ve been doing tutorials on YouTube for more than 4 years where I have 2 craft channels.

My passions are decoupage, recycling, creative painting, scrapbooking and the mixed media. I love mixing techniques, products and materials. If you like art, don’t be afraid to experiment, in art there are no rules. Simply, let yourself go and create beautiful things that brighten your life by looking at them.

Mansi Bhatia

Mansi is a self-taught artist and entrepreneur. She has led workshops for seniors as well as preschoolers. No matter the audience, her goal is to focus on free-spirited creations. She wants her students to feel the rush that comes from experimenting with different media, using colors as a way to express themselves, crafting with their hearts and hands…really tuning into their gut. Because when they listen to their intuition, they create art that connects with the soul. She enjoys exploring techniques for stamp-creation, portrait-transfers, collage-making and abstract-printing using the Gelli Arts® gel plate and various mediums, including acrylics, alcohol inks, pigments and fabric paints.

Alexa Doebler

Alexa Doebler (aka Blue Woods Design) is a self-taught mixed media artist living in Holland, Michigan with her husband & 2 kids. She loves art journaling, creating faces & trying new things in her artwork. She believes art should be an expression of self & that includes a wide range of emotions, thoughts & experiences. From serious to silly, art can enhance our experience of this life & should be valued for the process of reflection & expression!
