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 …

Amsterdam, You Were A Dream

  It has been a month since I returned home from The Living Studio | Amsterdam and Beyond. This exploring, creating, adventuring and connecting has been one of the sweetest parts of our business. As a child that dreamed of travel, being an actress, singer, artist, writer, fashion designer, interior decorator, and archeologist (I liked a lot of things growing up:-) I feel like I get to live out so many parts of who I am and the things I …

Being a Tourist in Denver | Top Spots on My Birthday

I am a birthday girl and try to squeeze every last bit out of it on that day. When people say they don’t really care about their bday’s I do not relate to those people. At all. One day all about me and what I want to do and everyone smiles the whole day while they do my things? Perfection. If I am being completely honest I believe it is more like birthWEEK. If I am really lucky I start …

An Artist In France | Art and Words from the Living Studio Along the Seine Artists

  The Living Studio workshops were created because there was a void in the art workshop world. The Living Studio would be about exploring a new place and creating art everywhere we went.  When we had scheduled classes they would be shorter to give you the techniques to get back to the museums, the cafes, the gardens and to have your sketchbook with you the whole time. I knew this style of workshop would not be for everyone but for …

France | Where Beauty Is The Function

  Jet lag is still my sidekick as I try to settle back into day-to-day life after France. These extra days of adjusting are also good for my heart and mind as I process once again the beautiful opportunity of travel. As I download photos, unpack my suitcase, wash too many loads of laundry, unwrap French treasures, and put away art supplies I am given the gift of remembering, honoring and reflecting on this time away.       I …

I am not saying it is easy but it is very much worth it. Being intentional and seeing the …

If Adventure, Creating and Travel Speak To You {I have something for you}

Sometimes we get to be wild explorers and travel far away, other times we can connect with other creatives not far from home and at other times we have the joy of hunkering down right where we live and creating among our day to day life.  Each one of these are life giving and creative building travels. I love that my travels have allowed me to build beautiful new friendships, sketch among stained glass windows and old wooden pews, sip …
