I read her bio a long time ago and was a fan before I read it and even more so after I read it. I love her, her art, and her way of thinking so I hope you dig these words of wisdom at least as half as much as I do. And I hope you can stop by my art blog my art tomorrow so see what I have or haven’t accomplished in a week.
