I am excited and very honored to learn that I have been nominated by International Encaustic Association 2014 La Vendenne Award for excellence in Artistry.

Many wonderful artists have been nominated in the categories of Education, Media, Innovation and Artistry. Will keep you posted as I know more. I am very grateful for this nomination.
