“I love to share the art techniques that I explore with others. As soon as I get excited about something I am immediately thinking about who I would share it with and how I would teach/communicate the techniques and concepts. I think that a gathering of community members sharing with one another is a great idea for connecting and expanding.”

We will discus many life dynamics that come to play, such as finding a balance of planning and intuition.
