A Peek Into My Sketchbook

I've been playing a lot with color and design.

Saturday, May 28, 2011


Several months ago I went back to work full time. My kids are both in school so it was time. I have loved it but miss all my time in the studio. I NEED to have a creative outlet. I decided that art journaling or sketching would be the way for me to have something
  • quick
  • portable
  • laid back
  • creative
So here's a peek into what I've been working on...
