I am taking the plunge this month into March Meet the Maker and thought you might be curious to come along for the journey.
What is MMTM? It is a series of hashtag prompts (see below) for an Instagram based challenge that are put out annually by Joanne Hawker to help connect artists to new audiences and to each other.
I am very lucky to be part of #TeamOgopogo this year - a group of Okanagan artists who have banded together for this challenge.

I hope you get a chance to check it out. I have made so many new artist friends through this challenge. It is also never too late to jump in and participate. It can be daunting to do all of the challenges, but you can also just pick a few to have fun with it.
I have been a little obsessed with reading the works of women comic and graphic artists lately. Lynda Barry, Roz Chast, Phoebe Gloeckner, and Lauren R. Weinstein just to name a few.
Seemingly lighthearted at first glance, these artists are weaving deeply intricate tales with words and drawing that I have found so haunting - they really touch you to the core.
If you are into reading, I am doing a reading challenge on Goodreads and would love for you to join me. I am hoping to read 65 books this year. Click here for my profile.
Thank you for allowing me to share these thoughts with you.
(P.S.I have been procrastinating in the studio putting together my list of sale items. They will be ready soon. Winter slows me down.....)
