With each class that I have taken, I have been able to use those skills. I explored and honed each area for the next year until our next workshop. I also believe the classes I have chosen have led me to the artist I am today. A natural progression adding more depth in each piece I make.
I am currently in 4 galleries in the Columbus area and am having success in these shops.
