January 4, 2014 Hi all and welcome to my new blog!!!!  So much has happened, I'm not sure where to begin but here goes... 2013 was a year of change.  I left teaching at both colleges (Community College of Aurora [Dec. 2012] and Denver [May 2013]), enjoyed being a grandma, mom, and wife, gained a upcoming son-in-law (wedding TBA), and even took time off from the studio, and... started a new job at an art supply company which developed into a full time management position. Artwise, my work was accepted into the Fusion Encaustic Exhibit at the EncaustiCon Conference 2013 in Santa Fe NM this past year and a beautiful catalogue was created for the show. The piece Interstice II was the work accepted.  What an honor it was to be included in such a wonderful exhibit!!!!!
