Celebrate the Freedom to Create!

4th of July, aka Independence Day, in the US just passed us by with loud booms and exploding lights but the reminder remains that we should be grateful for our freedoms!  One thing I’m particularly thankful for is the freedom to be a full time artist and to create pieces that express my thoughts and feelings, whether they appeal to anyone else or not, whether they cause discussion or argument, I’m free to create them…and you’re free to (hopefully) enjoy them (& own them…just email me…wink wink)!

So this month, come celebrate creativity with me at these two FREE (see the theme here?) art openings in Central & Southern New Jersey:

Barron Arts Center July Show

And some other cool news…

Recently I started working with the Sydney Art School in Australia!  They’ve hired me to create art lessons for their younger students.  They’re an excellent school with a wide range of courses for all ages:  www.sydneyartschool.com.au

I’m happy to be working with the rubberstamp/crafter company, STAMP-N-DOODLE!  They’re selling digital stamps for scrapbooking and other craft projects on their website!  I have sets of Victorian holiday collages and more so check it out..VERY affordable & a fun way to create your own art!  http://www.stamp-n-doodle.com/Shop.aspx?_pc=2&_cc=46

As always, thanks so much for reading & checking out the links!  Hope to see you at a show!
