Local News

Finally! I gathered the courage to step outside of my wee box and step into the real world! With encouragement of close friends and the motive from God, I went into a local shop and even contacted a local newspaper. So here's what has happened so far...

I have been an artist showcased at the Gortz Haus Gallery for over a year now. On this November 30th I will be featured along with three other artists in an artists' reception. Gortz Haus is located in Grimes, Iowa. The event will be held from 4pm till 8pm with light refreshments. One of the subject matters you can be certain to see are angels.

If you shop locally or living locally, you can now find my work at David's Briar Shoppe in Merle Hay Mall. David's Briar Shoppe is one of the top fairy gift shops in central Iowa and the largest distributer of Munro Gifts in the central Midwest. It's a shop I grew up around, always going in and dream gazing at their fairies, dragons, and pretty specialty items. Now, a dream come true, my work is a part of the shop I so high adore. Unfortunately they do not have a website right now, but hopefully in the future they will.

Not only am I in one of my favorite shops, but on December 15th and December 22nd I will be stationed infront of their store painting and selling small framed originals. How cool is that!

God is full of blessing! Praise be to Him for all that He gives and takes away.

Congratulations Sara :)
Step by step, I always told you :)

I'm happy for you.

Unfortunately, I won't be here for the 15th and 20th... :/
I would love to be here, see you in "real", and have an original (hihi, I have one, with luck 2 in december, but I love so much your work that I would love to have more :))

Take care, and continued to believe in what you do... :)

Congrats Sara!!! How exciting!! I'd love to come down and see you, but it's so impractical with my family right now... =(

I'm going to have my stuff in my first shop soon!! I would LOVE to do a gallery thing someday!!

Hey, are you still planning to do DemiCon next year? I think I'm going to reserve my table soon. I've got a bit of extra funds to do it with...

I know this is off the subject, but have you ever considered making tutorials for your website? I admire the way you draw, and I think it would be neat if you did tutorials.
I can imagine that it would time cosuming for you, so it's just a suggestion.

Thanks for all the comments ladies! As for tutorials...believe me...I've thought about it and actually used to have some. One...I don't have a good enough quality of a camera to take the process pictures. Unless I work really small that is. Two, it is time consuming. Really tho, I tend to forget that I'm tutorialing the piece and just keep going forgetting to take the pictures. :P If that makes any sense. Keep your eyes peeled, it will happen someday, maybe during the summer when things a little less crazy. ;)

Alrighty. And I follow you on the bit when you said you forget you're doing a tutorial and keep on going with the drawing. :-) Keep up the good work!
