Walking Decisions Out and Overcoming Fear | Part Two

You can read part one HERE. We had decided by that first night to take the gift of our new home, land, and studio and see if we could make a go at it without a net. We made this decision in early May and there was no net as of August 1, 2017. As the days of no net quickly approached I could feel the stress, anxiety, and pressure slowly creeping towards me. It wasn’t full and overpowering but …

Our One Year Milestone and Walking Through Storms | Part One

    Last year on May 4, 2017, I was just wrapping up an all-day workshop in my studio with local teenagers. The teachers and students had just walked onto the bus when I started to walk back down our gravel driveway as I saw Kelly approaching me. He let me know that he had just received some shocking news and my first response (in total me style) was, “Does it have anything to do with money”? I don’t like …

Early Registration Open | Creative Collage with Leslie Rottner

One of the sweetest parts of what I have the joy of doing is seeing something so beautiful and unique in an artist and asking them to share it with all of you. When I first saw the work of Leslie Rottner I couldn’t help but come back to look at it again and again. The more she shared her work the more I knew it was different and set apart.

Early Registration Ending | Quirky Characters with Lucy Cooke

So many times we can think we need a room of supplies to create or to be an artist. All we need is a pencil, paper and the desire to practice. I once read that people that connect with their creativity with simple tools like paper and ink or pencil on a daily basis are happier people. They slow down, connect, really look…they are present. The best part of this article was that their happiness was not based on the …
