I'm thrilled to say that I am taking MATS A & B, Assignment Bootcamp, and Creating Collections for Home Décor, which will bring me into fall 2017 with creative goodness! I'll probably be sharing some of my projects here and there along the way, so stay tuned! Here goes a long-awaited artistic adventure!
