About

Kathy Barwick is the author of the highly-anticipated forthcoming new 350-page book, Plastic Canvas Crafts Secrets.

She has worked extensively in crafts for over 23 years, and believes strongly that to live life to its fullest, you must actively engage in pursuits that give you the greatest sense of personal satisfaction, and you must pursue your passions and dreams with enthusiasm and determination, without ever forgetting to have fun in the process.

Besides creating her own original plastic canvas crafts designs and selling them to major crafts publishers such as Annie's Attic and the NeedleCraft Shop, her greatest passion is teaching her fellow crafters how to quickly and easily expand their skills and tap into the abundance of creative options available for taking their plastic canvas crafts projects to the next level.

Kathy is a certified Arts and Crafts instructor. For five years she taught both adult and children's classes in ceramics and stained glass while living overseas.

She honed her own crafting abilities by making and selling her crafts to augment her income. Over the years, she has sold many of her home décor craft projects to enthusiastic buyers in Europe and the U.S., often as fast as she could make them!

A multi-talented artist, she has also done extensive work with liquid embroidery and cross stitch, winning a first-place award for her liquid embroidery in Germany.

Her natural ability and willingness to experiment have kept Kathy busy trying new art mediums, but never too busy to share her talents and welcome new crafters into the fold.

For the past 16 years her greatest love has been plastic canvas. She has won hundreds of awards in a variety of local, county and state crafts competitions, and has sold a number of her original designs to well-known plastic canvas crafts publishers as well as to other plastic canvas crafts enthusiasts.

She now resides in Pahrump NV her husband Steve, where she pursues her passion for helping crafters improve their skills through a variety of venues including her new book, Plastic Canvas Crafts Secrets, as well as upcoming videos and a web site designed for budding plastic canvas enthusiasts that is currently under development.

Kathy is also an avid Etsy and eBay marketer who has learned how to turn her passion for plastic canvas into a lucrative part-time income.

As a big believer in life-long learning and self-improvement, Kathy is constantly taking courses and attending conferences in a variety of fields including web site building and design, online marketing, motivation and teaching, eBay sales, business and personal development, and natural health.

When not designing new plastic canvas crafts projects or working on the launch of her upcoming book, videos and online teaching forums, Kathy enjoys outdoor gardening as well as helping her husband run his marketing and publishing businesses. She has four wonderful grown children and three grandchildren whom she adores.
