Edie Cournoyer – I am a wife, mother, mentor and entrepreneur. I am brave, bold and outgoing. I am a free spirit and I think outside of the box. I am a self taught mixed media artist with a very eclectic style and a passion for trying new things. I host a live weekly art show that features a little bit of everything from art journaling to altered items, assemblage pieces to art dolls. I also love to be creative in the kitchen and I know my way around a sewing machine. I have done arts and crafts of all kinds my whole life, but I discovered mixed media art about three years ago. I enjoy many different things and I love sharing my art and experiences with other people.
