Recovery Art News

April 25, 2020 - I hope this finds you and your loved ones safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. Just a quick note to let you know that all of the art on my site is still available for sale, as is my novel. However, at this time, due to care-taking for elder parents, I am not offering any workshops. Please contact me if you have any questions.

In the meantime, I am currently having a blast art journaling, and creating funky steampunk pieces and junk journals just for the sake of creating to rock my recovery and manage anxiety. Blessings to you all!
