New Botanicals

It’s hard to imagine that a little over a month ago I embarked on the Squareathon challenge on Instagram. Most of them had been hanging at the Paper Love exhibition and I am grateful for Pauline who curated the show and took a chance on these baby pieces and on me. I’ve been encouraged byContinue reading “New Botanicals”

100 Days of Something
