Art & Soul Work

Here are some of the pieces I created at Art & Soul this year. I had a great experience. It was definitely stepping out of my comfort zone. I had never considered myself an artist before but I guess it's all part of the creative process. If you believe it and live it, it must be true. I am still a little shy about calling myself an artist but my "craft room" has definitely morphed into my "STUDIO."

This was probably my favorite class; Time Busted with Jessica Acosta. Polymer clay was a new medium for me but I was happily surprised at the results. I have to give Jessica huge kudos for being an excellent and most patient instructor. I wish I had purchased one of her dolls on vendor night. Next time it'll for sure be my splurge.

Here is piece from another of my favorite classes: Le Devine Shrine with Sally Jean Alexander. Even though my piece isn't perfect, I still love how it turned out. I learned a lot from both Sally and Brad. Everyone's work in this class was beautiful. I wish Sally would do more local workshops because I would love to learn more from this very talented lady. Can't wait until next A&S... I'll be sigining up for her classes on the first day of registration.
