Greetings from the studio….

The holidays are officially upon us. Hard to believe we are winding down yet another year. I don’t know about you guys but I am so worn out with the worries of these last two years filled with illness and fear, loss and financial burdens. I sometimes wonder if life will ever be the same again. We are living in a time that will certainly be in the history books one day.

We ventured out to dinner with friends to share a meal we didn’t have to prepare and then mulled cider afterwards at our home. It was wonderful, but a little weirdness and uneasiness crept in too. We ate early to avoid any real crowds. But even as we left there were still no real crowds like pre-pandemic weekends. And afterwards, having guests in our home, that felt odd too. In the end, it was lovely. I felt almost normal again, at least for a few hours.

My creative energy is currently being poured into holiday art projects and smaller commissions. I invite you to check out both of my shops for canvas art work or holiday gift shopping. (Links are in all caps)

If you would like to commission art I’d love to hear from you soon! We need plenty of time to work together and create your personal art.

Also, the slower mail…. 🤷🏻‍♀️



Thanks for checking in, please consider shopping small, or local, even if you don’t shop with me. Artists are fully stocked and ready to ship!

Until next time.
