create explore discover – denice barlow brown

by Sarah August 02, 2011

Happy Tuesday everyone….As promised here is the first biography of our wonderful instructors for the create explore discover art retreat. Denice Barlow Brown– Denice and I met through online courses with Marisa Anne and Creative Thursday…we share a connection also through Creative Coconuts-the island on the internet for creatives and also created by Marisa. Through our discussions, we found that she lives about 8 hours from me in Utah. So, when putting together the inaugural group of instructors she came to mind immediately. Her distance from the event, her beautiful artwork and teaching and her amazing story with a family of 9. Denice will be teaching two classes for us at this years event, Create Your True North and Artful Exploration. They can be taken in conjunction with one another or separately if you wish to explore other courses. (I personally want to take both–even though I’ll be teaching)

Next month I will have an interview with Denice and explore more of her creative spark with you all.. Please help me in welcoming her to this most cherished group of instructors…..

Denice Barlow Brown is an award-winning illustrator, artist and author. While most days she can be found creating alongside her many muses, she took a long and winding road to her current journey as “artist.” Through many varied endeavors both creative and business related – including wedding photographer, freelance writer, public speaker, and having her own line of scrapbook products, among others – she has learned the value of listening closely to the truth inside ourselves and allowing it to guide our creative path.

She is passionate about celebrating the creative sparks that light up her life, honoring her personal truths, and dancing under the stars as often as possible. She is mama to nine rather awesome and intensely creative people and makes her home with her cartoonist-writer husband on a very little farm in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.

Denice can be found at inkstitch where she shares all about her art, her amazing family and her teaching . Here also is a photo sneak peak of her classes she will be teaching….
