a visit with: Marlene Heuer

Over the next few months leading up to our November market, Tuesday through Thursday we'll be showcasing one of our 2012 market artists, their work, and a little peek at where they make the magic happen. We hope you'll enjoy this new series, where we'll ask the same questions of each of our makers. 

You'll get to know a little bit about our talented makers and what inspires them, read about their favorite ways to recharge their creativity, and learn what experience has shown them to be an invaluable piece of the puzzle in selling their work. Come November, won't it be great to walk into a room filled with inspiring, familiar faces? We think so, too!

This morning, we're spending time with much-loved illustrator and returning Second Storie vendor, Marlene Heuer...

a visit with:

- Marlene Heuer - 

What first inspired you to create/make what you do now?
My very talented mother, grandmother and aunt were all involved in craft shows when I was young. I must have caught the bug
early on.

Your advice for someone just starting out
and wanting to sell their work?
Love what you make and others will be able to tell.

Three things or people who inspire you?
My preschoolers, who take creative risks every day
and are fearless when it comes to getting messy.

- her work -

Favorite way to take a break/recharge your creative batteries?
Movies always leave me energized and ready to approach life with fresh eyes. They also give me great ideas for new color palettes.
