. . . AND TODAY’S GUESTS
Mixed Media Artist, Author
Amy Rice is a mixed-media artist from Minneapolis, Minnesota. She has been designing and cutting her own stencils for fifteen years. Here stencil artwork has been shown in fine art galleries in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and China.
For over a decade, Amy has used nontraditional print-making methods, including hand cut stencils and a Japanese toy called a Gocco printer, as a starting point for original mixed-media pieces. She uses spray paint, acrylics, gouache, inks, and print on antique papers (preferring handwritten love letters, envelopes, journal pages, sheet music, and maps). Amy is equally inspired by childhood memories of growing up on a Midwestern farm and the urban community in which she now lives. She is also inspired by bicycles, street art, gardening, and random found objects, collective endeavors that challenge hierarchy, acts of compassion, downright silliness, and things with wings.With 20 clever step-by-step projects and a stunning gallery of inspirational stencil designs from leading artists, Playing With Stencils, her new book, will leave you ready to stencil just about anything. You will design floor tiles stencils inspired by German paper-cutting, you will stencil furniture, shower curtains, a floor cloth, planters, a wall canvas, wallpaper, and even a cake. You will make paper dolls with clothing, stencil beautiful “lace” stationery, stencil custom yardage to use for simple upholstery projects or pillows, make a concert poster, and even stencil a faux rag rug!
Stencil art has been around for years, often used for home decorating and for simple crafts, but has gained current interest and cache due it’s guerilla use as street art (often making a political statement), and has become a worldwide subculture. Stencil graffiti has given stencil art a new sheen of coolness. This book will show you how to incorporate that look into your work, your accessories, and your home. You’ll become inspired to use stencils in your journaling, in collage, on fabric, on totes, and in art pieces designed to be hung on walls—and you will know how to create fantastic custom designs.

Unfotuneately, we had to reschedule Barbara Steingas
who will be rescheduled as a co-host in the next few weeks! Stay tuned . . .
Barbara Steingas has been immersed in German language and culture all her life via her German born mother and visiting her relatives in Germany dozens of times. Germany is her second home and very dear to her heart. In high school, the Literary Society Foundation, Inc. of New York City awarded her a Silver Medal for outstanding achievement in the study of German.
She recently wrote an article about the kindness of her neighbors entitled “Help Thy Neighbor Is Still Alive In Solitude Village.” It was published in the Winter/Spring 2009 edition of The Bridge, her town’s quarterly newsletter, as well as a letter to the editor in the Hunterdon Democrat, a local newspaper. The property manager of her neighborhood community enjoyed the latter rendition of the article so much that she had it reprinted in the Spring 2009 edition of Solitude Village’s Community Newsletter.
Barbara has been a Physical Therapist for almost 28 years and recently completed her 25th year at Overlook Hospital in Summit, New Jersey. She received her Bachelor of Science degree for Physical Therapy from University of Maryland Eastern Shore in 1985 where she received a scholarship for tuition and fees from their Honors Program and graduated summa cum laude. She earned a Master’s Degree for Motor Learning from Columbia Teacher’s College in 1988. Two other accolades include being represented in the 1980-81 edition of Who’s Who Among American High School Students as a result of graduating in the top ten percentile of her class, and election to the Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society’s University of Maryland Chapter in 1984.
Barbara’s latest book, The Healing Puzzle: Overcoming A Chronic Illness Through Unconditional Love,” which was recently published in March of 2013, chronicles her journey back to health from a severe case of Crohn’s Disease, an autoimmune form of colitis, largely through the unconditional love of her late husband. This book received 4th place/honorable mention in the self help/inspirational category in the second annual global book contest hosted by Lucky Cinda Publishing.
