Embrace your inner fierce and feisty!
It's been a whirlwind year; I got married, my brother moved in, my parents moved back in-state, my nephew and cousin were born, I finished my certificate program for graphic design ... Life's been full of fun and exciting times. All these great things make finding the time to make art difficult. If I'm tired … Continue reading Tree Nymphs, Underwater Adventures and More New Art!
