About Courtney Crane

I believe we all need more art in our lives, as art captures our souls & if only for a moment propels us towards the sublime. I search for inspiration in the everyday & often find myself fascinated with oft-overlooked details. For me, nature is the premier artist & I find much to aspire to within her diverse landscapes.

Not sure how I will handle the grittyness issue in the Sands of Time. It is actually part of the font. I love the sand like quality and other fonts fall flat in comparison. Thanks again, you are as kind as you are talented! : )) Von
