I Followed My Nose to the Birds and Blooms

Blooms!! I have no doubt you’ve heard me talk about my love of flowers and how much I miss them here in Vegas.  While roses are fairly prevalent, favorites like dahlias, peonies, ranunculus are pretty much non existent.  Sigh.  So I went against my better judgement and decided to purchase a few bulbs - peonies

It’s always so exciting to see your artwork come to life.  There’s something wonderful about being an artist and creating the incredible.  But it is also incredibly exciting to see a newly founded business take shape and present itself to the world.  Especially when it’s an artist taking the reigns on their creative career.  Isn’t

What does your bio say about you?

Oh, the dreaded bio.  I don't think I've met an artist in all my 25 years as a creative that enjoys writing one.  Do you?  Believe me, I don't really like writing them either, but I've come to understand why it's necessary to develop the skills to write a really great one. So, why
