I'm thrilled to be teaching with CraftEdu because I can get so many more people as excited about color, beading, sketchbooking and doodling as I am. These are life-changing endeavors when you pursue them as such. I've completely overhauled who I am through my creative expression, and its the most fun I know.
As a professional artist I've logged in years as a graphic designer, art director, painter, jewelry designer, author, teacher, lecturer, and color expert. And non-professionally as a musician. I publish color information specifically addressing the challenges presented by glass and beads. I've published 4 books, including the popular The Beader’s Guide to Color and The Beader’s Color Palette, which the Library Journal voted the Best Craft How-To book of 2009. I discussed my approach to color on a 2008 episode of the PBS TV show “Beads, Baubles and Jewels.” My lucky day... that's where I met Donna Kato!
I conduct color courses for artists, interior designers, and beaders throughout the US. My art is featured in galleries across the country and in many books.
My free monthly color column, “Margie’s Muse,” is available on my website, www.MargieDeeb.com. Subscription to my free monthly e-newsletter is also available on my website.
My articles have appeared in Bead & Button and Beadwork magazines, and I write a regular color column in Step-by-Step Beads (make that "wrote" as they are now part of Beadwork) and the Softflex website.
I hope to see you online in a CraftEdu class!
Note from Donna:
I asked Margie to write this for the blog because I did not want to forget or leave out any of her many, many accomplishments! Margie is a true artist who packs 48 hours into 24. She creates art, she writes about art, she teaches art. We are so lucky to have her as a member of our faculty. I was the lucky one when we met!
And now, revel in the color and the amazing world of Margie Deeb!
