Our goal is to create a magazine which builds into a community. In that community we want to foster learning, ideas, creativity and eventually want Artists to cross-pollinate with each other.
Ann Moore Bailey – Editor in Chief & Fearless Leader
Her husband calls her Tigger, the Energizer Bunny! Ann gets more done before noon than most people do in a work week. As our Founder, CEO and Editor in Chief, Ann is used to wearing multiple hats. She is an artist, author, business owner and leader; she wakes up in the morning excited to introduce and showcase the amazing talents of artists and creatives through Paper, Pen and Surface. Ann does her best work helping others grow into their best selves. She understands the layers creativity demands, and works to foster a community and environment where creativity and a solid work ethic help artists grow. Her goal is to bring light to all things related to paper, pens and any surface where innovation and cool ideas thrive! In short, Ann is a total, bad@ss!
Ann lives in Canton, GA with an entire brood of relatives and animals including (but not limited to) her husband, two labs named Biscuit & Gravy, 2 cats and a 1940 Chevy pickup named Jolene. If you hear a pen on paper or a keyboard clicking, chances are it’s Ann creating art, blogging and building this magazine.
