The Villages - July 2018 - 19

"A major art company offered me an art director
position," she said. "I couldn't believe it. I told
my husband, Dave, it was a once-in-a-lifetime
opportunity. I had to see where it led."
Two months later, Stillwaugh was in Kentucky
guiding a team of artists, testing products and
developing editorial content for national and
international marketing.
She designed and coordinated products and
projects for major retailers, including Michaels,
Joann Fabric and Craft Stores and Hobby Lobby. As a
guest speaker and seminar instructor, she traversed
the globe for appearances in Italy, France, Brazil,
Columbia, Japan, Australia,
South Africa and more.
"I met all these people, experienced their culture, learned from
it and brought it back," she said.
Stillwaugh has published 14
art books and co-authored 32
craft books and magazine articles. But sweeter than her accolades, experiences and accomplishments is the bloom of a fresh
work of art on her canvas.
"You start with a bud and
pretty soon it has blossomed before your eyes," she said. "When
I finish painting, I have the one
and only. I can never duplicate
what I've done. And when I start
painting the next one, it becomes
the next one-and-only. It's something to admire, share or
give away."
A Village of Ashland resident, Stillwaugh stays busy with
the only activity that rivals the joy of creating - teaching.
Her Enrichment Academy classes draw students for stress-free
painting, crafting, cake decorating and no-fuss cooking.
Her motto: Loosen up!
"I want my fellow artisans to walk about with a sense of
curiosity - wondering, "What else can I do?' Maybe they
don't want to take another class I'm teaching, but they may be
receptive to another art form. I want to be a facilitator for their
accomplishments," she said.
And to those who don't fancy themselves artistic,
Stillwaugh invites them to wade into the water.
"If you can't swim, you play in the pool, splash around, go
a little deeper before you try swimming," she said.
