We are extremely proud to present the artwork of 4 incredibly talented artists. Keep reading to learn more about these Spacecrafters and what they'll bring to the 'Moon!
Our first artist is Shari Acuff, who hails from the Pacific Northwest, specifically the Seattle area. Shari originally started her artistic career as a pattern maker, and holds a degree in Fashion Design. She now manages a popular rubber stamp and craft store called Impress Cards and Crafts, which keeps her craft-juices flowing!

Next up is Kersten Christianson, a moon-gazing, raven-watching, poetry-writing human. She teaches high school English and French and recently earned her MFA in Creative Writing/Poetry through University of Alaska Anchorage. Kersten lives in Sitka, Alaska with her daughter, husband, moon-crazed cat, and two canine friends, Odin the Yellow Lab and Freya the Newfie. Stamping is her preferred creative outlet of choice, but she has explored many paths along this trail.
has been creating and selling abstract texture paintings for fifteen years. She received her fine art training at University of Missouri –Columbia where she also received her teaching degree. She has taught art to children of all ages and adults. She participates in some of the top art fairs in the nation, exhibits in regional fine art galleries and sells her work online at www.heatherhaymart.com
. She has worked in two different galleries as well as owning and managing her own gallery/art supplies/decorative finishing products shop with her mom as her partner. This is where she met and became good friends with Kristen Powers. Kristen introduced Heather to the wonderful world of mixed media, stencil and stamping fun. She quickly discovered what an exciting way this was to expand her creative bubble, and she is super excited to share her discoveries with you!
Martice Smith II
, aka the curly artista, ADORES all things grungy texture, saturated color palettes + helping other creatives add more artsy playfulness into their everyday lifestyle.
She gets to mess around with art supplies all day + juggles many hats as a full-time artist, designer, online art instructor + styled stock photographer. This all gets done in the magical city of Kansas City, Missouri, USA. Her current art supply obsessions are fluid acrylics + printmaking with stencils/stamps using a gelatin plate.
