Thanks for the kind words as well and for the welcome. It truly feels good to be here. You'll probably agree that it's good when you find an outlet like this especially being self-taught. I feel like there's still so much for me to learn. It makes me feel so good to know we have that in common cause your work is truly inspiring. We're also Cali girls...one more thing in common! Good luck with your entries.
