Laughter comes easy for Claudine Hellmuth, 31, a mixed media collage artist and author living the ultimate creative life in Orlando, Fla. Her humorous and whimsical artwork is fantastic, with her latest pieces including collage scenes featuring back and white photos. (Above are some of her recent commissioned pieces.) She travels the country teaching art workshops and makes art, including several commissioned pieces, in her home studio.

Claudine has worked very hard to make a life for herself as a professional artist and the cool part is she’s willing to tell us how she did it. In this episode, Claudine is going to share the story of how she became a professional artist. She’ll also share some tips about finding your artistic voice.

She’s written two books “Collage Discovery Workshop” and “Collage Discovery Workshop: Beyond the Unexpected.” She has also produced two instructional DVD’s. Her work has been featured in fine art poster designs, in numerous magazines, and her designs have been fashioned into fun rubber stamps and scrap-booking supplies.
