The pooch is FINISHED, framed and with the new owner! This commissioned drawing was a lot of fun and a bit of a challenge at the same time as the picture of her showed some happy movement of the mouth. I wouldn’t have it any other way though as it highlights her energetic personality!

Had such a nice time teaching at a new venue in Hershey, PA! Everyone did a beautiful job. There is nothing more satisfying than happy students and I’m so glad to be able to grow my classes and reach more people that like to learn the art of paper quilling. “Art on Derry” is a lovely art store and place to take art classes, worth visiting when you’re in the neighborhood!
