When I am not in my favorite place, the seashore, my next best place to be is in my studio! It is where I create my art and jewelry. It is a place where I lose all sense of time, I free myself from worry and stress and I revel in the images of the sea. My studio brings me such joy. My wish would be that everyone has a refuge like this to contemplate life.
I want to give a shout out to Avera McKennan Hospital and their rotating gallery at the Prairie Center in Sioux Falls, SD. This entity provides local artists a place to showcase their artwork in a calming setting where patients, employees and guests come to relax and rest. Yesterday I was allowed to hang some of my work there and it will be there until June. I am thrilled and honored.
