I’m still hanging out in Glasgow these days, away from my studio. My husband and I have been here since mid-November, when he checked into the hospital for his stem cell transplant.
Art Every Day Month is here again! I’ve been participating for most of the past 11 years (the first time was way back when I lived in Switzerland). This year is going to be a stretch for me, but it’s also a good way to challenge myself. In a few days my husband will be […]
