Joanie Springer paved the way for me to teach in Santa Rosa several years ago. We met through our blogs. A fabulous friendship has grown, nurtured by encouragement, inspiration and spending our days and nights together talking art, sharing ideas, techniques, current challenges and new directions.

Values added with parallel lines.

Though our paths are quite different, we continue to find ourselves at similar crossroads. The life of an artist is often quite solitary. Good friends who allow each other space to create, while also giving support, are true treasures.
