My name is Tannis; I am a creative entrepreneur and workshop facilitator. For as long as I can remember I have been a creative person in some form or another. From writing my first poem to now, I have always loved to work with my imagination, my hands, and whatever may inspire me, be it the stillness of a lake, the wonder of a mountain rage, music, or color.
I have worked with mixed media, paper crafting, acrylic painting on canvas, art journaling, the re-purposing of old frames and wood. When I learn something new, I like to take my knowledge and teach and inspire others. I love to see the look on people’s faces when they have created something they never knew was possible for them to do.
In 2011, after leaving my job to advocate for the learning and teaching of my daughter, I began A Pinch of Creativity where I share all of my work online, through Farmers Markets, artisan and craft sales and Trade shows. Coming soon will be A Pinch of Creativity Studio where others can come to take workshops I have created, and shop in a retail space that is home to not just my creations, but those of other local artisans as well.
I believe that everyone has the ability to be creative in their own way; they just need to explore what their medium is and take chances to find it. My enjoyment comes from helping people to find their creative outlet, guide them through their own individual creative process and live a more inspired life.
