ABOUT THE MAKER
Kae Pea is a designer, instructor, illustrator, painter and creative moon beam. It is not uncommon to find her in her studio, experimenting with numerous creative projects, a wide variety of mediums or maybe dabbling with digital art, all on any given day!
She was, until 2011 at age forty five, a self taught, mixed-media artist, when she went on to receive her B.F.A. in Studio Art from Maryville University in Saint Louis. In 2012 she took over RubberMoon Art Stamps, and merged her love of paper crafts and illustration with her passion for art. She brings her enthusiasm and knowledge to like-minded creative souls through live and online workshops all across the USA and abroad.
Kae Pea is a firm believer in the magical powers of art making and loves nothing more than to share her ideas, inspire and empower others to 'get makey' and live their creative dreams.
Originally from the California Bay Area, Kae Pea lives and operates The Moon and The Maker Creative Space in a historic little river town in the Midwest. She is married to a great guy and business partner, has three amazing kids and three spoiled cats.
"Making art gives me the opportunity to reinvent myself on a daily basis. Each painting, for me, feels like the chance of a lifetime, and every time I begin to create, I am challenged to contemplate and experiment anew. I have learned that intuition and impulses during the act of creating are worthy voices to be heard. And I believe that it takes courage to listen and to follow. My artwork is an eclectic mixture in both medium and content. It is ultimately unified by love, life, change and courage."
ABOUT THE MOON
Founded in 1993 by Debra Valoff, RubberMoon Art Stamps became known and loved for its original, unique and whimsical designs. For twenty years Debra sprinkled moonbeams. In 2012 she and her husband decided it was time to relax more, hit the beach and put their toes in the sand.
After a timely phone call and a series of serendipitous events, Debra and Kae Pea sealed a deal that seemed as if it had been written in the stars! Now, twenty four years later, Kae Pea and "Mr. Moon", ensure that RubberMoon continues to offer innovative, original designs on quality, hand made, art stamps and still spreads creative, moon magic!
