Igma Artisan

I am happy to announce that I am now an Igma artisan in the category of food. These are the pieces sent for judging. I will hopefully continue to grow as an artist and I do find it very inspirational. Today I will celebrate for sure:)

Thank you so much to the Igma committee for giving me this recognition.  Thank you to Sp miniatures for the accessories to complement my work. I also give thanks to those of you that have helped me along the way not giving up and you cheerful emails and comments on my blog:)
