Hi everyone, Maggi here to announce some changes to the Gauche Alchemy team!
First, we have to say good-bye to three talented ladies, team captain Yvonne, who has been with Gauche Alchemy since 2010. She’s always been forward thinking and has created some amazing layouts and altered projects for us in her time with the team.
Alchemist Carmen, who has been with us for a while as well and was our newsletter overlord who rocked it every month! She’s a great gal and a talented artist.
And Alchemist Elina, who made some great tutorial videos for us during her time on the team. (Luckily, we’ve got one more video from Elina to show you so join us on 2/3 for that!)
We wish nothing but the best for all three of these talented ladies!
We also have an exciting addition to the Gauche Alchemy design team! She’s super talented and I think you’ll really dig her work. Help me welcome Jo Urbani!
Hi! My name is Joanna (but you can call me Jo) and I live in Kent, UK. I’ve always enjoyed dabbling with art but my interest really rocketed when a couple of years ago I started up my blog and met up with like minded creative people.
Paper collage is the basis of most of my artwork, such as ATC’s, art journals, gluebooks, tags, Mail Art, postcards, etc and I’m rather addicted to arting challenges, online classes (although I’m not very good at finishing them!) and taking part in swaps.
I think I could probably describe my style in two words, ‘vintage grunge’. I am drawn to rust, cracks, imperfection, tearing, smearing and the effects of weathering. My artwork is rarely neat and tidy, because it is usually presented with my preferred ragged edges and creases.
I am really excited to be joining the GA Design Team and look forward to playing with their wonderful materials!
We’re so excited to have you with us, Jo! We also have another new Alchemist to introduce you to so come on back tomorrow. Now help me welcome Jo and then go glue something awesome onto some awesome something!
