I'm in a Book!

Ok, so again--too long between blog posts.

BUT, maybe when you hear my exciting news you will forgive me. :)

Most of you will probably know that I had two art journal pages selected to be in the book "1000 Artist Journal Pages" by Dawn DeVries Sokol who did a marvelous job designing the book and putting everything together. And for those of you who didn't know I was going to be in a book, well--now you do.

I waited WAY too long to order my copy. I don't really know why because I was so super excited to see myself in print finally. The book has been out for a few weeks now, I think, and I only recieved my copy last week.

Anyway, the book is GORGEOUS inside and out. There is so much beautiful art in one place it's unbelievable. I am very honored to be a part of it.





I made the pics extra big so you can be sure and see my name in my first publication.

In other exciting news--I received my very first commission for a painting today!!!! I'm like all legit and stuff now.
