Call me crazy, but I think art should be fun, affordable, and on every wall of your house.
I grew up along the coast of southern California, and I've been making art since I could hold my first crayon. My mom and grandmother taught me how to cross stitch when I was seven, and I was put in my first art class when I was still learning to tie my shoes. I was raised with the belief that if you love something enough and you have the dedication, you can do anything you put your mind to.
I have a tubby toddler an old lumpy dog and a very patient husband. We live in a little wooden house in Salt Lake City, surrounded by spicy lavender plants and humming bumblebees.
