A little about me

In college I majored in plain old "Art".  
My senior year we were instructed to write an "artist statement".  I fretted upon it for weeks.   
Recently, I came across what I wrote.   
It was like coming across an old picture of an outfit you once wore that is now completely out of style.   
In a lot of ways though, I'm still that same girl.
Thought this would be a fun introduction to my blog.   
So welcome!
