Me and Lisa Congdon

I was away on vacation when all of this awesomeness happened. I had limited
wifi access so I just couldn't share here like I wanted to.
I saw a few weeks ago on her blog that Lisa was giving a talk in Portland about
her sketchbook, at the end of her post she wrote that if anyone had a sketchbook of
interest maybe she would mention it in her talk. I figured why not? and I sent off an email.
Well, I got a response right away and I was floored, She knew who I was and was so
complimentary about my work. What a way to feel special, she is someone who
I've followed for years and just love her work, her projects and her openness.
The next thing I knew she asked to interview me for her blog in the section called
People I Admire!!
Here is the amazing, beautiful interview. I feel so honored and humbled by all of this.


























Then last night in NY she gave a talk about her work, her new book, her inspiration. It was
a great talk and very hopeful and warm.
Here we are after the talk.

That is so awesome and I must tell you Jennifer, I love your work as well and you are so inspirational to me. I recently discovered you somehow, can't remember how but every time I see a post of yours, I just sit and dream about the next time I get to sit with my sketchbook and draw and paint! Thank you for the inspiration, it helps me get along in a busy day!
