Review for “Imaginary Animals”
“I have to say, I am incredibly impressed with this book.  It’s packed full of great ideas, projects and mixed-media techniques, many of which I have added to my repertoire.  The book is inspiring, fun, creative, imaginative and releases all pressure and expectations that we artists often place on ourselves. Instead, it gives you permission to let go, have fun and enjoy yourself.” — Regina Lord, www.creativekismet.com
