I have a wonderful artist to feature today!!!!
THIS COULD BE YOU! Just shoot an email to Bridgett @ email@example.com and she will let you know what she needs for YOUR feature!
Now, here is Dale Ann Potter!!!
I am a Textile Mixed Media Artist, Teacher, Positivity Coach and Speaker who lives in a small town in SW Saskatchewan, Canada. I grew up on a farm in east central Alberta so this little town is perfect for me! I have lived in large cities across this country of ours, but this is HOME! I enjoy the landscape – places where I can see for milesand miles and also, places that have surprises behind the hills and trees.
I have been creating all my life. I recall sewing by hand with Mom when I was 4 or 5. I never thought of myself as an “ARTIST” until 2001. I kept telling myself that I needed an ART degree! I am ever expanding and enjoying trying new ideas, techniques, etc. I know as a business you are supposed to concentrate on one thing and GO BIG. I LOVE both textiles and mixed media, so I use them both in my artwork. Sometime it’s more textiles than papers, etc. and sometime it’s reverse – this is the reason I call myself a Textile Mixed Media Artist!
I branched out last year into being a Positivity Coach. I have been, myself, expanding with courses, workshops, many books, etc. and have been promoting a more POSITIVE LIFE. People started noticing. I was asked by a couple people about coaching, then one more and one more. Again, I have been told that I should have a degree or initials behind my name in order to do this, but I feel EXPERIENCE is also a great teacher. I coach using art journaling as it’s been therapy for me over the years.
Presently, I am teaching 5 online workshops/programs and more to come in the fall. My website: http://www.daleannepotter.com has more information. One of the events I am honored to host is the first Positively Creative Retreat to be held in April 2013 with a special guest. Positivity, Creativity and Serenity – what more could you ask for?
I have many more surprises coming in the future and the best thing to keep up on these will be my Newsletter (sign up on my website).

My featured artist will go on to be featured again, this week, on Karen’s blog and was just featured on Bridgett’s blog! So you get maximum exposure! Since we all do different things you will reach different readers on each of our blogs and you really get your name out there! It’s really great. And best of all: It’s free!
