Eat Cake, Play With Dolls!

Two of my favorite things to do, and I was so fortunate to do both while attended Art-is-You last week in Stamford, Ct.
One amazing class was taught by Colleen Colquhoun Athens, a gifted and very talented doll artist.
Her dolls are breathtaking in person. They are tiny, diminutive, and exquisitively adorned with pearls, crystals and jewels. I have worked to try and capture some of the spirit of Colleen's dolls by making my own Pink Princess. Thanks to both Colleen and Heather, her very talented and helpful assistant for all their guidance.

Art is You Retreat in Stamford, Ct

Just returned from another incredible week at Art is You. It was filled with amazing artists, exciting classes and fun times and laughs reconnecting with old friends and meeting new ones.
I just can't wait to practice all the incredible techniques I learned and put the finishing touches on all my class projects. So much fun, too little time!
