Find me at Surtex (and Exciting News)!

Find my work at Booth(s) 420- 422- 424.

This has been such a wild dream of mine for several years that I still cannot believe I'm exibiting in New York City at the moment.
I strongly encourage you to never, never, never give up, and hold on to your dreams!
And as I told you in a previous post, I'm giving myself and my blog permission to evolve.
I made the decision to start a brand- new online journal, that will become my main blog, and will focus on art, photography, my work and my life.
The White Bench, I began with in 2008 and I'm very fond of, will remain as my secondary blog, a craft "studio" where I'll continue to post fun projects and ideas. Everything is still in the making, but I'm very excited about that and wanted to share my terrifically hot news with you! LOL.
Hope your week is off to a fantastic start!

  8. It could not have been a more perfect time for me to read this. I have a dream of becoming a full time artist of mixed media art and photography. Do you have any advice for me? I just started my very own blog ( if you could give me some constructive critiques I would be greatly appreciative.
    Thank you so much for sharing your art world with us!

    Oh, Surtex is so much fun. I exhibited there a few times several years ago {along with the Licensing Internation show too}. What a wonderful experience for you Monica. I have thought of you with all the earthquakes happening in Italia. I hope you and your loved ones are all okay. Prayers with you all.

    I did not realize that we both started our blogs in 2008...I look forward to seeing your new blog when you present it to us!
