Mandala Artwork Published in Louise Gale's "Botanical Mandalas"
Louise Gale is an artist and teacher who I have admired and followed for years. Her online classes have helped me grow as an creative person. I was so honored when she asked me if I would like to be one of the featured artists in her book, Botanical Mandalas. Of course I said yes! You can pick up her book on Amazon.
Celebrity Gifting Opportunities With The Artisan Group
I have proudly been a member of The Artisan Group for over ten years. They have represented me in many different venues, the first being GBK Production's Celebrity Gift Lounge for the 2011 Primetime Emmy Awards. These are photos from that event of Lorraine Bracco and Christopher McDonald holding my display print. Over the past decade I have participated in many of their other events such as Mother's Day and Earth Day gift baskets as well as other awards ceremonies. I have also had the opportunity to send my products to Zooey Deschanel, Mariska Hargitay, Tori Spelling, Genevieve Gorder, Giada De Laurentiis and Nicole Richie in special individual celebrity giftings. It's great to be connected to an organization that supports so many artisans.
Hampton's International Film Festival
My exposure through The Artisan Group at GBK Production's 2011 Emmy Award Celebrity Gift Lounge, gave me the opportunity to show my work at a private party at The 2012 Hampton's International Film Festival. Michelle Dockery, (on Downton Abbey at that time), showed my swag she received at the Emmy's to the promoter who was a friend of hers. I was asked to show my work and donate a raffle prize for the event. It was a lot of fun to be a part of this event.
