Today we're talking to Mary Beth Shaw.
Mary Beth Shaw worked in the insurance industry for 18 years before she quit her job in 2000 to re-ignite a childhood love of art. She is now a full time painter and internationally known workshop instructor.
Her creative process is largely self taught, spontaneous and joyful. She is author of Flavor for Mixed Media and Stencil Girl, both published by F&W and is also a columnist for Somerset Studios Magazine.
In 2010, Mary Beth had some of her hand-cut stencils designs manufactured and before she knew it StencilGirl Products was born. Her company has quickly grown into a respected supplier of high quality stencils for all media.

On the podcast we discuss fake eyelashes, encaustic, creating abstract art, having a studio outside of your home, and the genesis of Stencil Girl Products. As always, it's a good time with lots of laughter and thought-provoking conversation!
