Newport Paper Arts Festival Creations

Sometimes I have to pinch myself to make sure I’m not dreaming. This is especially true after a class like last Saturday’s NPAF Collage Reveal technique. The participants were upbeat, kind and fun; and they created some amazing works of art. I loved every minute of moving around the room like an art doula, helping them […]

An Old Crone in Death Valley

I’m writing this note to you from a hotel in Beatty, Nevada, just outside of Death Valley. A mourning dove coos a rhythmic chant outside the window.

Shrines for Hope and Healing Workshop – Take 2!

  Yesterday was another magical day of shrine making with seven Creative Souls in the Down to Earth Studio.
