Phyllis Lear is Art Jams’ creator and owner. She has been a professional artist, instructor, and graphic designer for 30+ years and an entrepreneur for many. She has also successfully created illearstrations, a fine art business featuring works of her own.
Phyllis believes that artistic endeavors feed the soul and that anyone can be creative. She invites you to feed your creative spirit and the artist within you by making your own art - the best you possibly can.
"Go into the arts. I'm not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven's sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something."
