Spring semester at its close

Another semester finished and only 2 more to go. I have masters programs staring me in the face and the realization that my long, delayed, journey through getting my Undergraduates degree actually has an ending. I am both amazed it is almost here, and broken hearted. I LOVE being in college. I know getting my masters… Continue reading Spring semester at its close

I hope my paintings can be an oasis

I still have a few in my possession (on my inspiration shelf). I hid several around… Continue reading 20 tiny Art cards

We went to a local winery and did a tasting. I happened to have my painting travel bag in the car, and inspiration… Continue reading Vineyard Adventure

Living art, addictions to pottery, and captured inspiration. Just a few things that have found me this year.

This semester has tuned into quite the challenge, but SO rewarding! I'm in the thick of finals, but have a moment to take a step back, and share with you my newest creations. Pottery! I'm obsessed! There is just something about drinking out of something I made from scratch that makes me want to create… Continue reading Living art, addictions to pottery, and captured inspiration. Just a few things that have found me this year.
