She sounds like a gentle soul, maybe she had the right idea, I mean she made it to 94 without ever working a steady job! Way to go. Feminine Touch 10 years ago Reply Very “feminine touch”. I love this post! Katie 10 years ago Reply Yay for women! And art!

Kate 10 years ago Reply I wish I resembled these beautiful artists but unfortunately I can’t get past being a paint splattered mess :) Lily 10 years ago Reply Fantastic photos! I love seeing artists at work and that they’re all awesome women on top of that makes this a total win. Sam 10 years ago Reply I’m always so astonished by sculpture and totally in awe of artists who can take lumps of clay or whatever and turn it into something beautiful. Every time I try to sculpt anything it turns out worse than a toddlers Play Doh figure, haha. garconniere 10 years ago Reply wow. these are so stunning.
