Marie Gibbons Heart Class

Jainnie Marie TejaeJainnie and I took our trip to Denver the end of January to take Marie Gibbon’s heart class “Get your Heart on”. I loved Marie’s studio/gallery. It’s the perfect size and filled with her artwork. Marie was a gentle artist that just oozes inspiration and creativity. The workshop was located in the center of this wonderfully creative space.
