Summer Sneaks Up on Us

BillindaWelcome Bellinda DeVillez

(BillindaBrandliDeVillezArtist) to the store! She paints lovely landscapes & most recently clouds! Her work catches my heart as some of the landscapes are of Menard County, childhood stomping ground. Come visit Billinda on Wednesdays or view her art anytime!

Classes are a work in progress. I am open to hosting classes but have been sidetracked¬† with life to actually schedule a lot. Please, feel free to contact me with dates that you or your kiddos would like to come in and be creative. I just need a nudge. Speaking of kiddos…open studio will be back on Sunday afternoons ..just watch the calendar!



Since January, our family has gone through a lot! We have been blessed with the birth of Lucas Daniel, celebrated family at an April wedding party, lost our dear, sweet Mom, Debbie and most recently our Aunt Leann. Life. Death. Birth. the circle. I could devote a whole blog post to how Debbie impacted my life as an artist & mother. I just may do that!

Back to work! Count your Blessings. Do what you love. Be not afraid!
