Home editor at LUXE INTERIORS + DESIGN, Shannon Sharpe from Chicago, contacted me at the beginning of this last year. Interested in reviewing my work for potential publication, Sharpe explained they featured a local artist in the magazine, including a full studio shoot. A good amount of coordinating occurred, including meeting Phoenix photographer Brandon Sullivan and San Francisco writer, Deborah Bishop.
Arizona November/December 2022 issue arrived last month!
Yesterday, I received a thoughtful note from a Washington State reader:
I recently read the article Body Art. I find that the focus of your work is intriguing and an amazing endeavor. I hope to see more of your work someday.
Thanks for sharing Elisa and Roberto with us. My mother is experiencing dementia and it’s progressing more than I’d hoped and I too am seeing her light slowly disappear.
Thank you for being you.
Dear Reader, I appreciate your note. Thank you.
Thank you Shannon, Brandon, Deborah and LUXE.
And a special thanks to artist, Christine Cassano.
