marie-for-gabriela-threeWhen I opened up the Artful Blogging magazine, you can imagine my surprise, when I saw my work illustrating Gabriela's article along with the other participants in her Fete.

marie-for-gabriela-2Thank you so much Gabriela, I love the interview. the artwork and photographs illustrating your article. I loved participating in your party, and now I have a beautiful keepsake from a lovely friend, and in my favorite magazine.
