Do you want to know what I love about art? I love that it takes you away. I love that you can fall right into it and go to places you have been dreaming about. I love that it becomes a part of you.
Lori Dean Dyment of Dean Dyment Studios is the kind of artist that makes it so easy to do just that. I am SO excited to introduce you to her work and her shop today!
