"This workshop goes way beyond the basics of Gelli® printing and highlights how to create those gorgeous layers Roben-Marie style! I learned countless new techniques and created many beautiful papers which I will be able to add to my stash. The projects were so creative and fun and now I have a new place to store my prints. Roben-Marie's teaching style is so detailed and her approach so encouraging that you feel as if you are working alongside her. I would definitely recommend this creative class to students of all levels. This is a workshop which I will refer back to again and again for years to come." ~Susan Gallitto

"There are so many great ideas in your class to push my Gelli® prints further, and get me using colors I don't normally use. I am having so much fun experimenting. I also love that I have a portfolio to stash all the goodies. Love it, thanks for the class." ~Colleen
Frequently Asked Questions
Meet Your Instructor
Hey! I’m Roben-Marie and I provide ideas, inspiration and quality instruction for hobbyists and art entrepreneurs. I teach artists from beginners to those making a living from their art through my blog and my popular online workshops.
Both in and out of the studio, my passion is helping my fellow creatives step into their full potential by creating confident, expressive art and sharing that art with more people through the power of the Internet. I’m a huge tech nerd and I love making technology easy and fun for overwhelmed artists! My flagship program, Maker’s Tech U, guides tech-challenged artists through every step of building their own website and powerfully effective online art presence.
As a woman of faith I believe that I’m called to serve and support others, so I strive to be accessible to artists who need my help. Seeing other creators embrace their unique voices, build their online art dreams and gain confidence in their new skills brings me great joy.
I’ve been a working artist since 2004, am self-taught and believe that anyone can cultivate their creative spark. I’ve taught mixed media art workshops and retreats across the U.S. and my work has been featured in countless books and industry magazines.
In my spare time I love to read, bake and travel. I live in Florida with my husband of 33 years and together we work with the youth in our church. I also have a heart for mission work, having served in Panama, El Salvador, Romania and Honduras.

•Stencils, stamps, mark making tools (see PDF for ideas)
•Freezer paper or Ranger Craft Mat (something non-porous to put your Gelli® Plate on).
