The sweet and gracious Julie Nutting (http://www.etsy.com/shop/TrashAlLaMode) came by my office today. I have to admit, I was a bit starstruck, as Julie is the first artist whose work I really came to love from working here at Stampington. I am such a fan. I remember Julie before she had her Etsy site and had the honor of writing the first article about her work for Somerset Studio. To finally meet her after 2 years was a dream. And Julie is modest. She's kind. How lucky am I that when I asked her about how she makes her works of art she is able to tell me? When you hold one of these canvases in your hand, it's an entirely special moment. Thanks to Julie for making my day. Stay tuned for some more of her fabulous artwork in the upcoming fifth volume of Somerset Home.
