Artists Unhinged Artist Introductions
(this is the official description from the Artist Unhinged program)

Anke Humpert is a true mixed media artist; some have even described her as a Renaissance person! Since early childhood, she has been working with any medium that she lays her hands on. In her teaching she offers to help her students to find their own voices. She offers her unique projects, but encourages everyone to try out their own ideas! Her passion as a teacher is to enable her students (of all age groups) to become more confident in using their own voices.
Anke’s work is very intuitive and multi layered. Her interests are especially in working with polymer clay, paper arts, painting, stamping, art journaling, and bookbinding. She likes to incorporate used and found objects in her art. She prefers to use her own made tools and likes to go into depth with her techniques. She also likes quirky things and you can often find little funny twists in whatever she does.
Anke is a fully qualified architect, who studied at the University of Fine Arts in Berlin, Germany. Her training was very free and encouraged her to find her own path. She has written several books about polymer clay and stamping in German, been published in various international magazines and online, has been on German TV with her polymer clay work, and teaches workshops national and internationally (including in Germany, the USA, England, Spain, Austria, and Serbia). She teaches in German and is fluent in English. Since 2010 she has taught online classes, which have opened up a new worldwide audience for her teachings. As a trained public speaker and leader, she loves to work with groups. She has worked together with a number of fellow artists on various collaborative projects. At the moment she is preparing for her first appearance in a well known polymer clay gallery in the United States.

Anke’s “Graffiti Pendant” (Course ‪#‎AH004‬) 3.5 Hour Class
In this fun Graffiti Pendant class, you will see polymer clay being used in a new and original way. This project is a young, fresh and urban take on working with polymer clay that will surely make a lasting colorful impression. Anke shows you how to make a bold show-stopping pendant complete with graffiti-inspired letters featuring colorful canes that look like they were just tagged with a few cans of spray paint. Anke’s technique produces results that are amazingly life-like and 100% legal!

Anke’s “Game Piece Charms” (Make-&-Take) 30-Minute Class
Learn Anke Humpert's technique for making game piece charms in a very short time. Do you love Tic-Tac-Toe, Mah-jongg or Dominoes? Then this class is “game on” for you! The “game piece” charms can be an adornment for your mobile phone, handbag or journal, or, if you make two, turned into earrings. This quick and easy technique creates surprisingly realistic looking game pieces. If you like it with a bit more of a personal touch, that is also an option that can be achieved.

Hope to see you there!
