Weddings used to be done a lot in summer, but I’m finding now they are really held throughout the year.
I’ve never thought of turkeys are pretty.
I got this question recently: “Do you create more when you’re happy or sad?” I have a snippet of that answer in the video. I believe in answering anything negative in life with something that offers hope and encouragement. So when I create when I’m sad, I will work through those emotions using art as […]
I’ve been looking back at some of our older booth setups. It’s interesting how things have evolved.

We’ve been doing art fairs and it’s been a busy summer.
I was in the studio the other night working on a new picture.
Artists need friends. ALL creative people need friends.
Can I tell you how absolutely thrilled I am that I was finally able to publish a coloring book?
Hey Guys, save the date!
What if you really want to be an artist, but right now you have a full-time job?
