I'm so happy to announce that Jen Starr will be teaching
 @ the LBH in September.

Jen Starr is a Mixed Media Artist with a fine art background who has been in the Craft Industry as a Designer and Instructor for over 10 years.  She is the first certified educator for Viva Décor USA, the creative Director for Art Anthology and is a fully Certified and Ranger Recognized Instructor.   There are many companies and products that inspire Jen and she is an endorsed educator or has worked closely with many of them such as Ranger, Ten Second Studio, Viva Décor, Canvas Corp, Tattered Angels, Stampers Anonymous, Faber Castell, Basic Grey and Prima, just to name a few..  Jen has designed several signature product lines and her projects have been featured in many publications in the US and Europe including the “Ink Essentials” book.
Jen has been making art her entire life and has been scrapbooking, card making and making colorful yet vintage inspired mixed media art since she married her wonderful husband, Mike, in 1997. They live in Northern New Jersey and have 2 children (10 year old Ryan and 8 year old Maya) who are the subject of much of her work.
Jen absolutely loves to teach her students to use their creativity and help them think outside the box. It makes her so happy to be able to share her skills, knowledge and love of the art of scrapbooking and stamping with so many others.
