Stampington & Co.

Three years ago, I didn't know about Stampington & Co.  Then browsing through a Barnes and Noble bookstore, I found a wonderful magazine with mixed media art and I fell in love with "Somerset Studio."  Over the next three years, I purchased and collected many of the Stampington & Co. magazines and experimented with the art techniques I discovered in them.  I opened three shops on the internet to share my mixed media art and other creations, and began to submit my art to the calls and challenges from Stampington & Co.  I began to dream too.

Earlier this month, on May 16, my dream came true.  My art, a mixed media canvas with dark rocky hills and pretty red poppies, was published in "Somerset Studio Gallery, Summer 2011."

Thank you, Stampington & Co.!  Thank you for your many beautiful magazines and the opportunities you offer for all artists to share their art with your readers and the world.

Thank you for publishing my poppy art and giving wings to my dream!
