The Silver Bella event is taking place November 9th and 10th in Omaha, Nebraska. If you missed yesterday’s post on our first set of interviews with the Prima Bellas, Teresa McFayden and Rebecca Sower, you can still read it here. Below are Charlotte and Jennifer’s answers. We’ll be posting the rest of the artist’s responses in a few different posts, so keep your eyes peeled for upcoming interviews! (Don’t forget to see the sneak peek links at the bottom of each interview!)

Charlotte Lyons

How did you all get together for this event?

Blogging opened the universe and brought me to the amazing Miss T. who invited me to join in…how exciting, so thrilled!

How would you describe your style?

Mixy-matchy vintagey patterns, colors and collages made from felt, textiles, paper, paint, embellishments, sewing, emptying drawers and boxes of stash, layering, recycling, repurposing.

What one thing would you like for your students to take from your class(es)?

One thing? Hmm. hoping they take home happy art, friendships, memories, a sense of adventure, creative excitement and if only one thing- a new twist on personal style.

If you weren’t an artist/designer, what occupation would you be in?

I would be a teacher (or a student!).

What other hobbies are you involved in?

Hobbies….collecting, birding, volunteering, reading, photography, music, observing my amazing daughters.

What snack food item do you always have on hand for those long creating sessions?

Cereal and coffee…later… salty things and wine.

Jennifer Paganelli

How did you all get together for this event?

The world of internet! Jenny Heid took me by the hand and said “look what these folks on the other side of the world are doing….”

How would you describe your style?
Bold remakes of the classics….retrieving landfill and making something useful and beautiful…

What one thing would you like for your students to take from your class(es)?

I’d love for them to take away a sense of wellbeing and that the door to creativity is open to everyone who tries the handle…

If you weren’t an artist/designer, what occupation would you be in?
I’d love to be in a textile factory where the spools of thread are turning faster than the speed of life and turning out masterpieces kind of like the moth creating silk but so much faster…

What other hobbies are you involved in?
Digital photography, a mac user,a dog walker and lover of dogs, nurturing teens in creative ways..

What snack food item do you always have on hand for those long creating sessions?

Just lots of coffee….
