Santa Fe Indian Market
I have been working really hard for this show! One-of-a-kind fine art pieces take time to make, I wish I could post everything I am creating as I make it. To be in this show has been a dream of mine – and it’s coming true! I am honored and grateful to be one of the chosen artists to be at this event.
This is a big deal!
I hope to see some of you there. If you read my blog, stop by and say “Hello.”
