I have learned so much, had the opportunity to become friends with some of these talented people and had fun in the process!  My blog keeps evolving to not only feature artists but also to promote their events and shows, local galleries and class offerings. I am always open for suggestions on how to improve or add to this!

In addition, I feel blessed that I have had the opportunity to join CAW (Creative Arts of Women) and participate in their most recent show at Tacocat…Woman As_____________ (my first showing of my art! WOOT!)

2015 certainly holds lots more chances to meet creative people, attend local events and promote away.  I already have several artists on tap for interviews and hope that all of you will continue to contact me with area happenings.  I also encourage anyone to contact me if you are interested in being featured!!!

Thanks to all of you who made this blog a reality and for your patience during the interview process.
