Keri Sallee

Assistant Creative Director

Keri Sallee has always been a lover of all things creative, from cooking to music to art. Before finding her place in the Arts and Crafts industry, Keri went to school to be a classically trained soprano and later to be a minister of music. It wasn’t until after her son was born that she took her first step into being an artist… by learning to scrapbook. It was then that she began to learn about the world of mixed media art and the world of imagination and color it had to offer. She is known for her faith-based artwork and bible journaling and is the signature designer for the Faith Impressions line for Gel Press. She currently resides in NW Arkansas with her husband Kendall, 3 kids (ages 17, 12 and 10) and a chunky bulldog, named Bubba Hamilton Sallee.

    In July 2016, Ana opened her own studio in the town where she lives. In addition to her traveling workshops, she holds monthly small group classes there.

    Cheryl enjoys spending time with like-minded creatives by teaching mixed media, sharing inspiration and tutorials on her blog, and sharing her art and writing for publications and calendars. She lives in an art-focused community and has participated in exhibits in Laguna Beach, CA.

    All this sounds wonderful (and it is). However, life doesn’t always go as planned. Detours can serve as a strengthening surprise. In late 2012, Cheryl was diagnosed with breast cancer. Art played an important role in her life and healing, for which she's grateful.

    Mixed Media Art and Bible Journaler. Photographer. Daydreamer. Natural Redhead. Simply Southern.

    Art journaling is Renae's jam. She started out Bible journaling a couple of years ago. That has now evolved into 20+ active luscious art journals of all sorts, sizes, and themes. I love making my own recycled art supplies and using every bit of scrap paper and pigment that I can get my inky hands on.

    I’m a former special needs teacher of all ages and grade levels and therefore a huge advocate for Autism Awareness.
