Inspired by the Tour

Studio Tour Apron and BrochuresNothing like signing up for a Studio Tour to inspire me to create more!

The San Juan Island Artists Studio Tour was a hit.  Guest Artist, Alisha Merrick and I estimated nearly 200 people walked through my home studio over the weekend.  It was absolutely amazing to have such a turn-out…my heart is so touched by the entire experience and love for art shared!  I am so full, empowered (and exhausted)…yet ready to pour Nature’s love out there with my pencils, pens and brushes more than ever!

Thank you to all of you who attended and shared in my studio, my nest, and my new processes. Thank you to the San Juan Island Artists who warmly welcomed me into this incredible experience and opportunity. Thank you to those of you who were cheering me on to the finish line from afar or online.  I sensed everyone’s good energy and love.

The tour helped me in so many ways, and was a celebration of so many things for me – 2 years full time on San Juan Island, my 1 year challenge with breast cancer is over, and emerging into the next phase of my artistic development.

Beyond painting so much more, the tour challenged me to take note of how my art best serves others.  I will be painting a lot more, and creating my unique block print process along with my in-studio canvas prints.  Also, I will be transferring my SquareUp store to the store I have created on this site – with the latest and greatest of the works.

My heart is joyful, and my gratitude is huge for all who came to my “nest” – so, a nest painting seemed most appropriate!  I think I have a dear friend who already has first dibs on this one!
