    My Dirty, Filthy Artsy Life

    I have been getting my hands dirty with paint and marker, glue and glitter almost everyday.  It makes me feel alive! The drawing above was done during an early morning drawing session with a few little girls I was hanging out with before Art Camp.  They started talking about fairies and asked me to draw one.  This is my little Spirit Sprite.  She was the delight of the little artists and inspired a whole day’s worth of winged one art sketches by them.

    Faces of Creativity Tribe

      One element of this new site that I am in love with is the Faces of Creativity Tribe page. In conjuring up what I wanted this space to be like, I kept wishing to find a way to let you be part of it. I have several ideas about how to make that happen on a periodic basis, but wanted to offer something on an ongoing basis. Faces of Creativity Tribe is a page found under The Tribe tab on the menu bar. There you will find a linky tool that you can use to add you creativity based blog. It is also a great spot to come back to…
