3 artists/designers you love and why! :
Megan Bogonovich - a wonderful friend and total inspiration as an artist as she fearlessly forges through porcelain and clay making mind bending objects.
Stacey Esslinger - native of NH, she makes porcelain handbuilt functional ware which is so unique and
detailed it blows me away!
Penelope Dullaghan - I love her playful illustrative way that she handles artwork. Each of her pieces
bring me back to Ezra Jack Keats, whom I have always adored.
3 things that make you smile:
my daughters, my husband and The IT Crowd!

hand painted elements. Link
