Studio artist Smith Jones presents a new kind of art how-to book, in
which she tackles many of the intangibles of the creative process but
from a practical point of view. She is not constrained by any one
medium, and she encourages readers to stretch beyond their boundaries.
Various drawing, watercolor, and collage materials, as well as
different methods, subject matters, and ways to display completed
work, are discussed. This book will appeal to artists who want to
rekindle their creative spirit, and it could inspire hobbyists and
scrapbookers to take a next step. - Library Journal, February 2011
